I’m thrilled today to be on the blog tour for Nemesister by Sophie Jonas-Hill. A thrilling read full of suspense.
About the book
It’s a psychological mystery where the female protagonist stumbles into a deserted shack with no memory but a gun in her hand. There she meets an apparent stranger, Red, and the two find themselves isolated and under attack from unseen assailants.
Barricaded inside for a sweltering night, cabin fever sets in and brings her flashes of insight which might be memory or vision as the swamp sighs and moans around her.
Exploring in the dark she finds hidden keys that seem to reveal her identity and that of her mysterious host, but which are the more dangerous – the lies he’s told her, or the ones she’s told herself?
Published by Urbane Books on 6th July and available to purchase from Amazon.co.uk
After reading the description I was really intrigued to find out the story of Nemesister and couldn’t wait to get reading. What then followed was a very complex story, there seemed to be several different things going on and I will admit I was a little confused, but in a good way I must add.
Let me explain……
The book opens with a young woman stumbling into an old house, she’s injured, in a mess and has no memory what so ever, not only that she is holding a gun and has no idea how or why she is there. Slowly through the book her memories come back and the story jumps from present day to childhood with memories also leading up to the present day. This was where I found the confusion, it’s so well written that I felt like I’d lost my memory and as the young woman was piecing things together so was I. I was totally part of the story.
Nemesister is a very atmospheric book, on more than one occasion I found I had goose bumps and I found myself racing through the book. This really is an intriguing story that totally pulls you in, I couldn’t put the book down and read this in one sitting. There’s so many questions through out the book needing answers you can’t help reading on, its a real sleep stealer.
This really is a book you need to read if you like a story that is dark, twisted and full of suspense. I highly recommend Nemesister and I’m looking forward to reading more from Sophie Jonas-Hill.
My thanks go to Abby, Sophie Jonas-Hill and Urbane Publications for the chance to read and be part of the blog tour.
