Brendan lives in Charlotte with his wife, son, daughter, and a herd of animals that tear up everything.
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.
~ TOP TEN THINGS TO DO IF YOU’RE A PAWN IN A GIANT GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY ~
In Nemesis, Min Wilder and Noah Livingston have a unique problem—every two years, on their birthdays, they are both murdered by the same man in a black suit. Except they doesn’t die like normal people. Instead, each time, a few hours later they wake up in separate places in the woods about a mile away from their Idaho hometown, without a scratch on them. And they don’t even know about each other. This would disturb anyone, but after their fifth murders on their sixteenth birthdays, they decide they’ve had enough. Min and Noah begins to investigate the impossible things that are happening to them, and in doing so uncover a far-reaching conspiracy that is more sinister than the murders, and may implicate the future of life on Earth itself.
But what should they do? What would you do, if this was happening to you? Here’s a Top Ten List of things you might consider!
TOP TEN THINGS TO DO IF YOU'RE A PAWN IN A GIANT GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY
10. Don’t tell your parents. They aren’t likely to believe you, and might try to kill you.
9. Move furtively. I mean everywhere. Barrel roll down the halls to class. It’s safest.
8. If you see a cute stranger who wants to talk, run like hell. RUN. LIKE. HELL.
7. Suspect every adult you encounter, and also your lifelong friends. Kick any that get too close.
6. Learn to use weapons. Like, all of them. Hone those bazooka skills.
5. Floss. It’s always important to floss, and that doesn’t change.
4. Do you happen to know any secret information no one else does? HOARD IT.
3. I’d time capsule those Taylor Swift albums. You never know.
2. Always remember: you're not paranoid if everyone really IS out to get you.
1. That cute guy or girl you've always liked? Probably time to go for it. BUT SEE RULE 8.
Follow these rules and you are sure to survive the conspiracy! (Actually, probably not. You’re gonna be toast. But at least you’ll know how to use a bazooka!)

This sounds like an amazing book. I couldn't quick "add to wishlist" fast enough! The cover is really cool, looks like it would actually be 3D.
I like the cover! It's very eye-catching. The story sounds really fun too! I'd love to find out what's going on with Min.
I love the feeling of violence that the cover evokes. It matches te tone of the book, which sounds like an amazing read.
I knew I'd heard of the author before! I just bought the Virals series at a library book sale. The synopsis for this book sounds way more my style! The cover is simple but interesting. Nothing really special. But it's what I'd expect from a book in the thriller genre.
