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.

"something different from Terry Goodkind"
very enjoyable,good story that kept me listening. would love to see the story continue... book#2 ??
"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...
"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
"A different story but good!"
The plot moved right along with a couple good twists. Ms. Rodgers did a great job!
"Average Writing, Slow Plotting"
The writing's not bad, thankfully, but not quite up to snuff. Too much attention to facial expressions and superfluous character thoughts give it an amateurish feel. Also, there's a lot of 'telling' instead of 'showing.' However, I could have overlooked these things had the story been captivating, but the plotting is painfully slow. I gave up after 20 or so chapters.
"OMG! Another Terry Goodkind Masterpiece!"
Terry Goodkind writes smart fiction. For any who have read the Richard and Kahlan adventures in the Sword of Truth, you know this. His social and political commentary are woven into the stories artfully and powerfully. This new one is no exception. I was worried that it might end with just one novel, but after hearing the final 5 minutes I know we can expect more from this new power couple that Terry does so very well.
Can hardly wait! I am just glad he writes faster than George RR Martin!
And Terry, you need to find a producer who will bring these to screen with more patience than Legend of the Seeker.
This could be a fantastic HBO, Showtime, Amazon, Netflix series, but they have to have a love for the text and the patience to allow the long dialogues to blossom on screen as they do in print.
at least for me. the last few Richard and Kahlan books where getting a bit... ridiculous, I think is the right word for it. The relentless explanation of magical concepts and a lot of what felt like unexpected turns for the sake of unexpected turns to get you to a predictable Richard saves the everything end. This wasn't necessarily that different except it was fresh. the explanation phase that seems to be part and parcel with Goodkind was interesting because it doesn't take a lot of imagination to think it's plausible. I was really worried about this book after the last few sword of truth and the summary didn't make it sound too hot, it was very enjoyable and I'm hoping it develops into a good series that doesn't out live it's entertainment value like... well, Goodkind readers know... so bottom line: give it a read. Be warned though this isn't a book for those with delicate constitutions.
"please give of more"
this book is one of my all time favorites. thank you Mr. Goodkind. please write a sequel.
Such a bad book. The characters emotions are completely confused from scene to scene, and the ending is remarkably predictable.
"Thank you Mr Goodkind for once again creating an amazing world"
Couldn't put it down. Enjoyed the characters and the story throughly. Please tell me there will be more?
if I had been reading it myself I would say I wouldn't have been able to put the book down. well read story, couldn't stop listening.
"Fantastic new material from Terry Goodkind"
A good listen and read. Top book can't wait for the next instalment, if there's to be one
