Nest by Terry Goodkind ~ Book Review

Book Description:

#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.

I was super excited to read this book. From the synopsis I figured I would devour this book from beginning to end. In the end I felt I was let down. I did enjoy this book but I can only give it a 3 or 3.5 star rating as I found once I was just over half way through the story line to me slowed down and got repetitive.

Seeing evil in eyes of strangers would be horrifying but to be wrapped up in a run for your own life and others because these evil individuals can identify you through your eyes is even scarier. This book starts off fast, not wasting anytime on getting into the story and having it unfold quickly. There are some pretty gruesome spots that I read through quickly but all in all I liked this book because it was different than the average suspense thrillers I have been reading lately. I would have to say it is a bit paranormal like. Take a chance on it, you might just love it.
