TITLE: Genesis (Project Nemesis #2)

Published March 6th 2018

RATING: ★★★★½

4.5 out of 5 stars


Noah Livingston knows he is destined to survive.

The 64 members of Fire Lake’s sophomore class are trapped in a place where morals have no meaning, and zero rules apply. But Noah’s deaths have trained him–hardened him–to lead the strongest into the future . . . whatever that may be. And at any cost.

Min Wilder knows that survival alone isn’t enough.

Trapped in a violent world where brute force passes for leadership, it’s tempting to lay back and let everyone else fight it out. But Min’s instincts rebel against allowing others to decide who lives and who dies. She’s ready to fight for what she believes in. And against whomever might stand in her way.

Series? Yes, this is the second book in the Project Nemesis series.


This book continues the storyline of the first book in this series Nemesis. It follows two characters Noah and Min who are both betas in the program called Nemesis.

This book is action packed! I think I said it before in my Nemesis review that it would make an awesome TV show or movie and after reading this second installment, I still stand by that! There is so much packed into this book.

There are friendships that are formed and torn apart. There is some romance. And tons and tons of killing and death!

This book is slightly reminscent of the Hunger Games because of the survival of the fittest aspect, where you have to kill your peers to stay alive.

I really enjoyed the dual perspectives in this book. I actually enjoyed it more in this book than in the first book.

The writing in this book is absolutely incredible. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I kept wishing that I could read faster just so I could get to the end and figure out what happens, but alas, another clif-hangar.

There will be a third book coming out in 2019, and I can’t wait to read it! The third and final book in the trilogy is called Chrysalis and it’s expected publication is March 5, 2019.

If you are looking for a book series full of action, twists and turns, love and betrayal, than this book is for you! In my opinion this book series is a yong adult dystopian/sci-fi.

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading!
