Chrysalis (Project Nemesis #3)

by Brendan Reichs 

Published March 5th 2019

RATING: ★★★★½

4.5 out of 5 stars


The 64 members of Fire Lake’s sophomore class have managed to survive the first two phases of the Program–and each other. Now, they alone have emerged into the dawn of a new era on Earth, into a Fire Lake valley that’s full of otherworldly dangers and challenges. Although staying alive in this broken world should force Min, Noah, Tack, and the others to form new alliances, old feuds die hard, and the brutality of the earlier Program phases cannot be forgotten. But being a team isn’t easy for the sophomores, and when they discover that they may not be alone on the planet after all, they’ll have to decide if they’re going to work together . . . or die together.

MY REVIEW OF A Chrysalis:


Young Adult – Science Fiction – Dystopian

What a thrilling conclusion to the Project Nemesis trilogy.

When this book came out, I contemplated whether or not I should go back and read the first two in the series to remind myself what happened. I have SO many books to read and only so much time to read, so I knew that wasn’t feasible. I say that to say, returning to this dystopian world was so easy. The book picked up right where the second one left off.


And the end of this book? I have so many questions!!!! This book leaves us hanging with an insane clif-hanger, that you will totally understand if you read this book.

If you are looking for a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat, and go in a totally different direction than you expected, than this is the book for you. I was completely entertained (even though their were some highs and lows throughout the book).

All in all, this was a fantastic Young Adult Dystopian Sci-Fi, and if you enjoy reading in that genre, you are bound to love this trilogy.
