The Official Synopsis:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Terry Goodkind reinvents the thriller with a provocative, page-turning walk among evil.
Kate Bishop thought she was an ordinary woman living and working in Chicago. But when she unexpectedly finds herself in the middle of a police investigation into a brutal murder, Kate makes a shocking discovery: she has the ability to identify killers just by looking into their eyes.
Trying to grasp the implications of this revelation, Kate is drawn deep into a world of terror. She is tracked down by Jack Raines, a mysterious author with shadowy connections to those who share her ability. He tells Kate that her unique vision also makes her a target, and only he can help her.
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.
An explosive mix of action and suspense, Nest is a landmark new novel from worldwide bestselling author Terry Goodkind, and a complete reinvention of the contemporary thriller. Travel with Goodkind on a dangerous journey to the back alleys of the darknet, to the darkest corners of our minds, and to the very origins of what it is to be human.
Book Rating: 10/10
Spine-chilling, gritty, and hands down one of the best thrillers I’ve read this year!
As most of you know fantasy and science fiction novels are not my favourite and anyone who’s anyone knows that Terry Goodkind is very successful in those genres, so I have to admit in the beginning I was a little hesitant about reading and reviewing this novel, but boy am I glad I did.
This is a gripping, often gruesome, intelligent thriller that takes us on a journey into the dark and disturbing criminal underworld and immerses us in violence, manipulation, murder, depravity, immorality, wickedness, and pure evil.
The characters are complex, unique, and well developed. And the story starts off with a bang and continues from there with an incredibly clever rollercoaster ride full of twists and turns, mystery, intensity and suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.
This truly is an extremely captivating novel that will not only shock, fascinate and scare you, but cause you to reflect on what “evil” really means and where it actually may come from.
What more can I say. This isn’t a good book, it’s a great book. Terry Goodkind you definitely have a new fan in me.
