LoveReading View on Nemesis

British scientist Lamb's debut last year with 'Roboteer' was a striking one (and a book I was sad to have initially missed and not been unable to review in time). His follow-up is set in the same, complex SF universe where humans are augmented to be able to control spacecraft and mankind as we know it is riven by conflict between systems of belief and religion, only for the struggle to be turned upside down by the dfiscovery of alien technology, even though the actual aliens are nowhere to be found. The unstable truce of sorts arrived at at its conclusion is now about to unravel and interstellar war is soon to break out again with untold consequences that coulp wipe out the human race. The struggle is on to locate the aliens and find out their ultimate intentions. Space opera on the grandest of scales, with striking characters, undreamed of machinery, extraordinary powers and galactic landscapes make this another triumphant breakneck read that will stay in your mind for eons. SF with a glorious sense of wonder.

Nemesis Synopsis

Years ago, one starship and its crew discovered an alien entity which changed everything. Its discovery finally bought an end to the interstellar war being fought between the masses of humanity and the few pockets of genetically engineered colonists. An uneasy peace was negotiated as the human race realised there was something else sharing our universe. Something that had plans for us. But the aliens have remained silent. The earthers have begun to test the edges of the peace treaty. Will, once a roboteer, once a human, now the most powerful being alive, has been sidelined and ignored. And a system-wide conspiracy threatens to plunge humanity back into war. Now one man, his head full of alien technology that lets him interact with machinery, must get to the bottom of the plot, find out what the aliens want, stop the oncoming war and save Will. And his journey will uncover a new threat to humanity. Nemesis is coming.

Nemesis Press Reviews

'Nemesis is a very entertaining action novel with some great science fiction. I loved the concept of the Roboteer in the previous novel and I still do here. There is some really intriguing science to go with the action, as well as some well-drawn characters, some great spaceships and some very memorable habitats and aliens. I want wonder from science fiction and this novel provides it, as well as a fair bit of horror, but most of all it is fun and put me on the edge of my seat. It is also a great size! I love a science fiction brickbook that I can lose myself in for a few days and when I finished Nemesis I was more than ready for part three.' For Winter's Nights
