Nemecene: Through Fire & Ice by. Kaz Lefave

Disclaimer: This book was requested through NetGalley and was able to get a free copy of and able to read. This review is based on thoughts and opinions from the lead writer of this blog so respect what she has to say and thank you!

As Earth gets hotter every day Elize’s decreasing mental stability brings on new voices that no one not even her buddy Stitch nor her brother Keeto would understand. Within this last episode of the first trilogy of the ten episode series, we get more clues of what’s going on and how Elize is able to see what is going on with Stitch and Keeto tagging along. As each page turns, our three heroes find out new things that Dr. Tenille has handed Elize and the newer counselor so they can find out what had happened to the orphans from the Aldemedina Orphanage and responsible for these happenings.

On top of it, Sothese, the first narrator and new player in this game as the Spiritual Councilman to the Prenam, has his sights on ELize and snakes around anyone who gets in the way to find her as the Pranum’s leadership declines slowly. Will Elize, Keeto, and Stitch be able to keep themselves safe in order to take down whoever is behind the acts taking place in their new home? Will Elize be able to keep herself in control while new clues resurface?

Thoughts: I have to say is that sorry for this taking so long to read? I was trying to read it on my Braille Sense Polaris but due to new Firmware updates it always brought the book back to the beginning so I started reading it on an app that a former co-worker told me about called Natural Read and it worked out very well. It is basically a PDF reading app for your phone and when you encounter any PDF files you can Share it to the app itself. Now onto my thoughts.

I liked this book more than the first two because we get to see more what is going on with Elize and how Keeto is trying to find ways of helping her with Stitch. I felt like this was more of a story about her because of what she was going through with the voices inside her head and it felt like she was taking on her mom’s psychosis all thanks to them. I did like how her personality changed from sweet and innocent to someone who had a major attitude issue and then switched back due to realizing what she was doing or forgetting about it later. This book did show how it was driving her insane even towards the end where things were getting darker for her due to harming herself. I did feel like I was looking in on both Keet and Elize because of how they have grown through each episode and how I felt that this story is starting to shed layers like an onion in what they are going through as each page turned and as each day drew on since this takes on midday for Elize with how she goes through her day of seeing the doctor or the captain characters that she has interacted with about her voices and so on and any clues dealing with their mother while Keeto is late evening with his journal writing to their mother about the day’s events.

While Sothese, on the other hand, in the book description I felt like I was wanting to punch him with how of a…pardon my French…asshole he is! I understand he is important to the story and how he wants to find Elize but how he does it is so creepy! I know there was one challenge where we had to pick a voice or actor for this guy and I chose Erik Vale but using his Kimbley voice from FullMetal Alchemist which makes him sound creepy enough and thought that voice as I read the book on my Braille Sense and on Natural Read. What I found it interesting was how he made Caroline involved with this as a way of luring Keeto into it and who knows maybe with the next episode there may be more to it and Sothese’s plans since we did end the book on a bit of a cliffhanger where he has Elize at last and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Rating: 5 Out of 5 Star Paw Prints! This book is one of the best I’ve read in Sci-Fi so far due to how mysterious it sounds. I found Sothese’s actions creep7y but it does show how he wants to get what he needs and that is by using different people as pawns even if it’s at the risk of his job in the religious unit. ELize is starting to show more of herself even if new voices come to be and how she interacts with them as each day goes on makes it even more interesting and you do get to see her other side by the end of the book where things start getting juicier. While Keeto is trying to figure out more things about Elize that may have been shared between her and their mom since it looks like she may be facing the same fate as her and plus it’s starting to get more interesting to learn that he and Elize may not be human as he thinks. I can’t wait to see what Episode Four has in store for me since I want to see more of what is going on and plus this book series is painting our world as time goes on since we are going through major climate changes. One example, huge wasps nests in Alabama and a tree species dying in Alaska due to Hemlock. Who knows what else is happening in our world and it would add more material to these books I guess.

That is it for this book review. More books to be read reviewed as time goes on since I do have a new Mimi Jean Pamfiloff book coming up to review since I still have my kitty nose in that one. Stay tuned!
