"Lavin is adept at creating a narrative thread that is realistic in the challenges that move and change family and personal relationships . . . Nemesis of the Great is the sequel to her first book, The Taciturn Sky, and is an engaging read . . . I recommend that you put it on your reading list." - The Pen Woman
In this sequel to The Taciturn Sky, Bryce Parnell is forced to reconsider his position as a member of the elite class once he discovers who is actually running things from above. Set in the twilight of America’s genteel aristocracy, he comes to terms with the fact that he and his kind are an endangered species, about to be overtaken by the rise of the newly rich and their limitless money and power. An unintentional spiritual odyssey, an unexpected friendship, and a heartbreaking family tragedy are only part of his new world, as Bryce ultimately accepts that in order to outrun his enemies, he will have to run faster than he has ever run in his life.
