Now, hot on Jack and Kate’s heels are a force of super-predators, vicious and bloodthirsty killers who will stop at nothing until Kate is dead. But even as she fights for her life, Kate still isn’t sure if Jack is really her salvation, or another killer coming to slaughter her.
Authors don’t become #1 New York Times bestsellers for no reason, folks. This book (and this author) are proof of that.
Nest is one of those smart-scary reads that has you silently praying that it's all a figment of the author’s imagination, because it’s so well-written that you sometimes get the feeling maybe he knows something you don’t. (It was all made up, right Mr. Goodkind? Please?)
Anyhoo, this thriller with a paranormal twist is character driven with a strong heroine, and it offers just the right blend of suspense, intrigue and mystery. Fair warning: it’s not for the squeamish. There’s violence that’s graphic in nature. But in its defense, there’s no “gore for the sake of gore.” The violence was clearly used for storytelling and mood-setting purposes, not for gross-out shock value.
For readers who are looking to get right to the meat and action of a story, I will warn you that there’s lots of talk between characters in the beginning that will feel like it drags on for too long. But stick with it. The dialogue serves a purpose that makes itself clear in future chapters.
All in all, this is a highly enjoyable read that I recommend for all paranormal, horror and mystery/thriller fans. You might need to sleep with the lights on for a few nights after reading this one, but it’s well worth the sacrifice.
