The last time I did a Tuesday teaser post was back in October! My aim for 2018 is to share a teaser from one of the books for that month’s TBR each week!
First up in 2018 is Nemesis by Brendan Reichs. I’ve read a lot of books my Brendan’s mother, Kathy Reichs, the TV show Bones was based on her series of novels, although I’ve not read the YA series they co-wrote. Nemesis is the first book in a YA series written solely by Brendan, there’s a second book due out this year.
About The Book
It’s been happening since Min was eight. Every two years, on her birthday, the same man finds her and murders her in cold blood. But hours later she wakes up in a clearing just outside her hometown alone, unhurt, and with all evidence of the crime erased.
Across the valley, Noah just wants to be like everyone else. But he’s not. Nightmares of murder and death plague him too, though he does his best to hide the signs.
And as the world around them begins to spiral towards panic and destruction, the two troubled teens discover that people have been lying to them their whole lives . . .

I swore to myself I wouldn’t die that day. Up and down. Come at me, you bastard. Sweaty-palmed as I gripped a battered Louisville Slugger, eyes glued to my bedroom door. He was already inside the trailer—early this time, as the first slanting rays of sunshine began peeking over the mountains. While Mom was still away at work. I’d heard the front stoop creak, and instantly knew who had come. That I was trapped. Right here. In my own home. Another unpleasant first. I wasn’t scared. Not of him. Of this. That’s just not how it worked anymore. But my anger simmered near the edge of control. A floorboard groaned. I took a calming breath. Narrowed my focus to audible noises beyond the door, a flimsy piece of sliding metal that couldn’t stop a toddler. All that separated me from a monster who’d come to snatch my life away.
What do you think of today’s teaser? Does it sound like a book you’d enjoy? Let me know below!
