Description-

  • The stunning finale of the Project Nemesis trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Brendan Reichs.
    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.

Excerpts-

  • From the book Noah

    Back in the village we grabbed several lengths of nylon rope and three sets of climbing gear. Then we tramped around the mountain, climbing bluffs and powering through scrub as we circled the massive cylinder. Once buried deep underground, the silo now stood at the outermost edge of the island, its eastern side fully exposed to the elements and dropping hundreds of feet to the ocean below.

    I shivered every time I saw it from this angle. The silo looked like a bird on an unsteady perch. A few hundred more feet of erosion and our supposedly indestructible lifeboat would've crashed into the sea along with the rest of Idaho. It was a freaking miracle we'd survived.

    Scanning the seaward-facing concrete, I tried to visualize where the back exit should be. So much had changed while we were inside the Program. I squinted into the sun, probing the pockmarked surface with my eyes, but came up empty. I was about to suggest we go back for binoculars when Akio's finger darted out. "There."

    He'd spotted an indentation maybe forty yards to our right and a dozen down. But I couldn't see if there was a door. "Could be," I agreed. "But how do we check?"

    I glanced at the top of the silo, unreachable now with the mountainside gone.

    Can't get up, can't go down. What a mess.

    But Akio had seen more than just the possible entry point. "There's a ridge below us that runs around the silo. I think we can get above the opening and rappel down to it."

    I blinked at him. "Rappel. Down the cliff. Over the ocean."

    Akio shrugged, the ghost of a smile appearing on his lips. "You have a better idea?"

    "I do not." My throat worked, but there was no other way. "So let's do it."

    Akio took the lead. We worked along a sharp defile to reach the ridge. It was a full three feet wide—plenty big enough to feel comfortable if there hadn't been a hundred-yard death drop on the left side. As it was, I could barely breathe.

    I heard Kyle gasping behind me and took solace knowing I wasn't the only one about to crap his pants. For his part, Akio moved confidently, circling to a wider cleft above the indentation. Once inside there, I put my back against solid stone and tried to slow my stampeding heart.

    "We're lucky." Akio patted a triangular spike of rock jutting up in the center of the cleft. "We can tie off on this. I was worried two of us would have to anchor the line with body weight."

    I shivered, thinking about that insane prospect, as Akio began securing ropes. He produced two sets of carabiners and snapped them in place, then handed me an ascender. "For the climb back up. Wouldn't want to forget."

    I shoved mine deep into a pocket. There was nothing left to do but go.

    "Okay," I said. "All right. Okay."

    "One of us should stay here," Akio said. "To watch the lines."

    Kyle's hand flew up. I shot him a dirty look, but nodded. I was in charge of this mission. I had to go over the side.

    Akio offered to go first, but I shook my head roughly. If I didn't do it now, I never would. I clipped in and took a deep breath. Every kid in Fire Lake had gone rappelling at one time or another at Starlight's Edge summer camp. This wasn't novel. But a quick zip down a scouted pitch on lines laid by professionals was a little different from stepping off a vertical cliff above a death drop and hoping Kyle didn't accidentally let you die. We had no idea if this was even the right place. I'd have to climb back up either way.

    Just don't look down. That's always good advice, but especially now. Don't. Look. Down.

    Noah Livingston and Min Wilder navigate a life removed from the machine.Noah and Min (both presumably white) have led their classmates out of the Matrix-esque computer program that kept them alive through mankind's final days, but the hits keep on coming. Contact with a satellite group has been lost, the lake has mysteriously drained, and someone has destroyed their supplies. As tensions rise and bodies are buried, Min and Noah begin to believe that there may be more to this post-historic environment than meets the eye. Unfortunately, this is where the author's twisty, turny narrative starts to run out of steam. Instead of maintaining the breakneck pace that kept readers so engaged throughout the previous two installments, this trilogy capper coasts to the finish in its closing hundred pages. Noah and Min continue to be exciting protagonists, but their development is stalled as the series' final antagonists reveal themselves. The narrative ends nicely with one last twist that feels a bit silly but works despite itself, but readers may find themselves passively reading this tome rather than actively turning pages with glee. Regardless, the series as a whole remains a bright spot in contemporary YA fiction. A rousing examination of leadership, community, and humanity at large.A solid and satisfactory finale. (Thriller. 12-16)
