Kate Bishop is in a world of trouble. In the wake of several inexplicable and brutal murders, Kate is thrust into a police inquiry that reveals shocking family secrets. Suddenly exposed to a shadowy network of global evil, her life takes a dramatic turn with the arrival of Jack Raines, an author with a mysterious past who says he has the answers to her questions. What's more, he suggests that Kate herself might be the solution.
But hot on their heels are a force of superpredators, vicious and bloodthirsty killers who will stop at nothing until Kate and Jack are eliminated. Like Jack, they've realized just how special Kate is, and now she's marked for death.
An explosive mix of action and suspense, Nest is a landmark new novel from worldwide best-selling author Terry Goodkind and a complete reinvention of the paranormal 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, a place few have ventured to and fewer still have survived.

"Do You See Evil?"
A fantastic thriller that grabs your attention from page 1 and keeps it, ramping up the tension and anxiety... At first you're not sure if the devil is real, or a delusion, or maybe metaphor?? All of the above and then some;). Some social context weaves in via surveillance, cyber crime/terrorism, identity theft, etc... Really does put a unique twist on the idea of profiling and eye of the beholder... Great pace, but it's not an action filled suspense story, but rather psychological w/ punctuating events that keep you turning pages... I appreciated the mood, which felt somber, and almost a little rainy... The central idea is interesting and the evolutionary theory is fascinating... There's some philosophizing, but it's barely noticeable, and anchors the plot well... Some real nice turnarounds and gotchas throughout, some surprising, some not, but all vividly done... A pretty clear examination of how human cruelty/ depravity permeates and percolates, and often in the most visceral of ways... Characters, major and minor, are natural and easy to invest in, even when on the pages for a short period... The narration was better than average, and doesn't detract or distract... The door was left wide open for a followup, and I sincerely hope that's the case... This is definitely different Goodkind, but paradoxically you can see the fingerprints similar to those in his fantasy works... If you're a fan you'll likely enjoy...
"something different from Terry Goodkind"
very enjoyable,good story that kept me listening. would love to see the story continue... book#2 ??
This is a book that could have been told in a couple of chapters. It was long and tedious with over explained theory's. I finished it but it just felt over done.
The story started off as a fantastic semi-supernatural thriller, but lost a lot of precious momentum about a third of the way through. Honestly, the hour and a half of anthropology lecture was a drag and while it provided context and some background, was boring and felt like filler to an otherwise good story.
The performance was very good, and the reader did a great job of creating men's voices that weren't distracting. at times I forgot the narrator was female.
"Beware ! This is a prologue not a novel."
Extremely repetitive. The plot is highly reliant on boring physical conflict . It is plagued by superficiality in every area but especially in characteristic development. The book is obviously just a prelude to a sequel , the sequel of which will probably be equally just a set up for the next without any substance. The premise of civilization undergoing a dark era was entirely wasted by this author. Really a mess of a story.
"One of his best books"
Loved The Wizards first rule series, this is even better. The set up is a bit slow, but it ends in spectacular fashion!
"Ok Premise --moronic dialogue"
I wanted to like this book. The premise was interesting and initially the protagonist seemed a compelling character --smart and interesting. But as soon as she connected with the hero the dialogue made her appear to be simple minded. And it went on and on and on and on. Spiraled downhill between descriptions of horrific torture. I would not buy another book by this author.
Too much talking and explaining and not enough action! I was very disappointed in this book
"THIS IS A BOOK THAT YOU MUST...MUST...MUST HEAR!"
I could not put NEST down...not even for a second. I listened to it at work, at play, in a bar, in the bathroom, while eating, and every other moment of the day. It drew me in
from the first page to the last. The characters were real, and the story was real. One could call it fiction, non-fiction...I DON'T CARE. It not only scared the crap out of me but made me aware of the unbelievable point that no one on earth is safe. TERRY GOODKIND is not good but a GREAT AUTHOR. STOP RIGHT NOW AND DOWNLOAD IT. I could not stop listening!!!
So far I haven't found one!
Every part of this book was GREAT!
THE FUTURE IS HERE NOW
No. It wasn't too difficult to guess what would happen when they reached NYC, in general, a good read though.
Don't want to spoil it for others
