Lexi and Carey just tried to exist in a world without electricity, but caught by the dangerous cult lead by Rahab, the sisters were treated to a life of brutal rape and torture. Watching the death of her sister broke Lexi in many ways, but set her on a path of violence, learning the lessons she needed to accomplish her goal - the total destruction of Rahab's cult.
This wonderful storyline about survival in a post-EMP world, teaches a few lessons for survival in such a world, but mostly shows the bravery and single-minded purpose of a victim freed of her shackles and bound on the path of vengeance. She will survive, but can she forgive? Read and discover the truths. Read and learn. Read and enjoy. READ!
This author created Lexi in the New World Series which was a great series. Nemesis was to be a Trilogy with the lead character being Lexi (in my expectations). Turns out author kills off the lead character of the "Trilogy" in the second book leaving you wondering why you bought Inception and Dead Center. If you liked the character Lexi do not buy this trilogy. You will like Inception and hate Dead Center. Nemesis repeats a lot from the New World Series. Great author but as we all know we all make mistakes in my opinion.
Every man talks about a dream woman at one time or another, this is her for me, a beautiful, strong woman who can drink a Marine under the table. She can handle herself in a fight be it with fists, knives, or guns. The thing is she didn’t start out that way, she starts out as just another California, blonde, party girl. How she gets to be who she is, well for that you will just have to read the book.
If you've read Michael Hopf's New World series, then you will really enjoy this book because it tells you the story behind one of the more interesting characters from that series, in a story of her own. I found it to be a great read, and found myself cheering for her time and again. I also appreciated the greater depth to the story about her sister. I am very anxious for additional volumes in this series to follow Lexi's exploits in the post apocalyptic world.
I didn't give this book a five only because the last half of the book is a rehash of events with Gordon that happened in the New World Series. It was just for a slightly different point of view. It wasn't a bad book and it was a great stand alone story in the same world that the New World series in set in. Over all I found the character of Lexi engaging, and interesting enough that I would like to read more of her story after the events of Nemesis.
Another great offering by Mr. Hopf, an expansion of the New Worlds universe and a start to what is bound to be a fantastic trilogy, in it's own right. Mr. Hopf is very approachable and interacts with his fans, and this is a story asked for by fans of his fantastic New World series, and he has delivered with this first of three offering of fan favorite Lexi. Character development is, as always, top notch, and the story line stays on point and moves you right along at a great pace. Highly recommend this book and any offering from this author.
Hopf delivered a well written book giving us in sight into Lexi's past and how she became who she is. This book provides a parallel story line to some of his other works, and if you're familiar with them you will find some repetition in the story although you get to see some of it from a different perspective. Looking forward to the next one.
Good book! I really liked that the author didn't waste time taking pages to describe one thing in so much detail that you get bored. No page skipping here! He kept the story moving and to the point. My kind of author! Also, I really liked the fact that he didn't put in graphic detail and gory detailed scenes. I'll be getting more books from this author.
Love this book about a female that had to get strong and she did . She has gone through some horrible things and still will. I have not read the other books with Lexi in them but that is what I am starting now. Good book Mr Hopf.
