Lali had her say. Now it's Kai's turn…

Kai Awana can find anyone . . . well, almost. His ability to appear next to whomever he envisions should have made things easier, but even after months of searching and a series of morally questionable actions, he is still no closer to reaching the one person he desperately wants to find—his sister, Kala. That is, until he comes across

This one was a tough one for me. I absolutely loved XODUS. It's told from Lali's pov and she's such a great character. This is from Kai's and no matter how hard I try, I can't bring myself to like him. It's not only his actions and his lies, but he comes across as grumpy and judgmental. It's not attractive. But his story is heartbreaking. This book is him telling Lali what drove him to do everything he'd done. The chapters are separated by segments of a letter he's writing to her that is so full ...more

The most fascinating character in XODUS was definitely Kai Awana, the mercurial teenage boy with the (clearly) hidden agenda that shows up out of nowhere to help the heroine, Lali, locate her missing mother. Kai's motivation for helping Lali, once the climax of that story was reached, were a lot more complex than Ms. McPike let us realize.

In Nemesis, we get the events of XODUS - before, during, and just after - from Kai's perspective. While a lot of the scenes, conversations and events were not

( I received a review copy of this book. Thanks to K.J. McPike!!!)

I enjoyed reading the first book in the series which was one of the finest books that I've read. It was great reading the book from Kai's point of view and looking at the things from a different perception.

It is easier to misjudge anyone after they have broken your trust. You always have a fear of being betrayed. That's why even after all that Kai tried to convince Lali, she wouldn't listen at all. Moral of the story is that neve

Nemesis, the followup companion novel to K.J. McPike's award-winning debut paranormal thriller, XODUS, stands on its own as an entertaining, action-packed, and well-written addition to the Astralis series.

As with any great conflict, there are two sides to every story. Told from Kai Awana's perspective, Nemesis offers an alternative narrative to the events that transpired in XODUS. Through his eyes, we are able to delve into Kai's intricate past, his internal conflicts with his own identity, and

Hmm, what can I say about Nemesis (Astralis #1.5)…how about it’s awesome. Though it’s set during and just after the events of Xodus I did not feel it was repetitive because this time around it’s told trough Kai’s perspective and allows for the reader to get a deeper understanding of his character.

With K.J. McPike’s superb storytelling skills, I was once again sucked right into the story from the very first page. Being inside Kai’s head was great and made me love his character even more. He was e

This novel is a masterpiece! I was roped in and kept on the edge of my seat the entire time! Kai, the main character, is intricately woven so that he has incredible depth; his internal as well as external conflicts distinguish him from the majority of individuals, especially in how he manages to deal with every issue that arises in his life.

Simultaneously, McPike manages to have every other character have their own unique traits. There is never a point in the book where a character becomes dull

This series is exciting and terrifying. How far would you go to save someone you love? In this series two teens have to figure that out. This series is a must have for YA fans of all ages.

I really enjoyed the first book in the Astralis Series by K.J.McPike and it was worth every star. Guess what, so is. Nemesis, book 1.5. At the beginning of this book, I thought, errrrmm I no Xodus so well, it will feel like I'm just reading it all over again, do I need to do this? But I am so glad I did. There is a,ways two sides to the same coin, and yes it is the same story, but again gives you so much more and a totally different perception of things, when we learn who and what Kai, is and wh ...more

Last year I read K.J. McPike’s XODUS and it quickly made it to my top 5 reads of 2015. I loved everything about the book and the characters and was desperate to read more of their story. But I especially wanted to know more about Kai. I couldn’t wait to hear his side of the story so I jumped at the chance to read McPike’s latest Astralis novel, Nemesis.

Nemesis gives us the events before, during and after XODUS from Kai’s point of view. The story flows just as well as the first and despite includ

At first, I assumed this book may be a boring retelling of Xodus, however I wanted to give it a chance since I loved Xodus so much and much to my surprise I was blown away! The story gives so much perspective into Kia's life and thoughts that aren't presented in book 1 that I'm left rethinking my initial reaction to his character (that I wasn't a fan of at first). It's so much more than a retelling---it includes scenes/parts that aren't included in the first book and does a great job of quickly ...more
