The Book Quadrant: Nemecene Episode 4 by. Kaz LeFave

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with a long awaited book review!

Nemecene: Dreams Flow in Streams by. Kaz LeFave

Disclaimer: This book review is based on thoughts and observations of the lead writer of this blog. Please respect her thoughts on this book which was given to her as an ARC for her to enjoy and review.

In this episode, we find Elise in a newer world where no one can pass through and memories fade and where being guided can lead to being misdirected. Keeto now has to keep his sanity while his sister is being kept in incubation after seeing her murdered in front of him and Stitch and must play a game of Trust-&-Seek in order to save his sister but can he stay strong and sane in order to do that?

Meanwhile the Gadlin Subculture is going through its own crisis where the ocean is in its vision but the planet is changing at a fast rate despite their ways of fixing it. Tufferie, on the other hand, is now selected among the group that has been watching the twins’ progress in the city Aedenborough and must keep the truths behind their veils as she guides her friends to help save Elise’s life and keep Keeto sane to help put the pieces together.

Thoughts: Man that was kind of hard to write the synopsis in my own words since I did remember how the book went at certain points. So, basically this book continues from where Through Fire & Ice but with one twin dead and the other grieving with Stitch. I was surprised when I was going into the book that the reason why Elise went cold was due to what took place at the end of the last and that she is now in an area being brought back to life within nine days if possible.

I did find this book really interesting since the afterlife or purgatory in this world is more of a dream world. As we know that different cultures have different ideas of death and purgatory and I find this new since it shows Elise’s memories even with Keeto, Nithruyu, Stitch, and even going back to a time of their ninth birthday. Okay, the number nine is bigger in this book since we have nine days to get her back, ninth birthday, and still keeping the nine chapters in this idea.

What do I think of Keeto in this book? I find him doing well despite the grief he was going through. Yes, I saw that he was going a bit insane even around Stitch, who had his hair freezing which we can tell he did like Elise more than just a friend and how his attitude just went cold and the ice was also hurting Keeto at times. I was surprised that he let Sparky go through but I understand since he lost his sister who has been his only friend all his life and they are trying to survive in a toxic environment and of course wondering what is going on with Caroline who is also another life line where they are. I also found his journal entries very interesting since he was calling out to his and Elise’s mother and hoped for more responses and what I find more interesting is the tech being used with the transmitters where he has recorded things over time. He even questions more about what he finds and if it is really linked to his mother but at the same time it still loops back to the birthday memory. I feel like the birthday is a big symbol while reading the book. I don’t want to spoil too much since you may want to read this one.

And finally, Tuffurie, I liked how she started in her segments of the story as in working at the café where the twins tend to hang out at and have those Flyer Bakes all the time. I can imagine if this was animated that she has glasses or something to make her more unique to me besides the jewel tone eyes like the others had. I know with the others like her she has been still in the story and I hope they keep her as each episode keeps on being written. I did find it interesting how she interacts with Elise and trying to help her and yet not helping her by saying, “Do this this way but not that way!” And how she makes it sound like it will get her back as each day keeps going. I can’t wait to see if she has more things to do in the next episode since she seem to have more care for Elise like Nepharus had in Episode 2. Will have to see!

Rating: 5 Star Paw Prints Out of 5! This was a really interesting book with how we got to see what purgatory was like and of course getting to see more of Keeto’s mind. I do like how the ninth birthday came into play and that memories can be changed and also time since there was some time traveling that took place but can’t say how. I hope with the next book we get to see more growth with the twins and that Elise and Keeto find that new place after knowing that they can’t stay where they are anymore. I have a feeling they had to leave Aedenborough even though their journey took them to different parts of the world they’re in. With the next one I can’t wait to see how Kaz will make it since new things are popping and now more things are showing with the Gatlins and who knows what secrets may hit and how both of the twins will find out. Still a great series so far!
