Meet Brendan Reichs!

 Brendan Reichs was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. He graduated from Wake Forest University in 2000 and The George Washington University School of Law in 2006. After three long years working as a litigation attorney, he abandoned the trade to write full time. He lives in Charlotte with his wife, son, daughter, and a herd of animals that tear up everything.

 

 

 
Meet Nemesis!
 
 
 Orphan Black meets Lord of the Flies in this riveting new thriller from the co-author of the Virals series. 


It's been happening since Min was eight. Every two years, on her birthday, a strange man finds her and murders her in cold blood. But hours later, she wakes up in a clearing just outside her tiny Idaho hometown—alone, unhurt, and with all evidence of the horrifying crime erased.

Across the valley, Noah just wants to be like everyone else. But he’s not. Nightmares of murder and death plague him, though he does his best to hide the signs. But when the world around him begins to spiral toward panic and destruction, Noah discovers that people have been lying to him his whole life. Everything changes in an eye blink.

For the planet has a bigger problem. The Anvil, an enormous asteroid threatening all life on Earth, leaves little room for two troubled teens. Yet on her sixteenth birthday, as she cowers in her bedroom, hoping not to die for the fifth time, Min has had enough. She vows to discover what is happening in Fire Lake and uncovers a lifetime of lies: a vast conspiracy involving the sixty-four students of her sophomore class, one that may be even more sinister than the murders.

 

 

Min Wilder’s Nemesis Playlist
This playlist is for Min Wilder, one of the two major point-of-view character in Nemesis. I will release Noah’s playlist later this month. 
Min has a unique problem—every two years, on her birthday, she is killed by the same man in a black suit. Except that Min doesn’t die like a normal person. Instead, each time, a few hours later she wakes up in a field about a mile away from her home without a scratch on her—alone, unhurt, and with all evidence of the terrible crime erased. After her fifth murder, on her sixteen birthday, Min's decided that she’s had enough. She begins to investigate the impossible thing that is happening to her, and, in doing so, uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy in her tiny Idaho vacation town, one that may be even more sisiter than the murders, and may implicate the future of life on Earth itself. 
I think this playlist fits both Min’s character and the mood I like to be in when I write her scenes. So, to me, it exists both as a playlist on Min's iPhone and as a soundtrack to her life. I hope you enjoy it!
