The Story:

The princess didn't expect to fall in love--with her nemesis.
Princess Sepora of Serubel is the last Forger in all the five kingdoms. The spectorium she creates provides energy for all, but now her father has found a way to weaponize it, and his intentions to incite war force her to flee from his grasp. She escapes across enemy lines into the kingdom of Theoria, but her plans to hide are thwarted when she is captured and placed in the young king's servitude.
Tarik has just taken over rulership of Theoria, and must now face a new plague sweeping through his kingdom and killing his citizens. The last thing he needs is a troublesome servant vying for his attention. But mistress Sepora will not be ignored. When the two finally meet face-to-face, they form an unlikely bond that complicates life in ways neither of them could have imagined.
Sepora's gift could save Tarik's kingdom from the Quiet Plague. But should she trust her growing feelings for her nemesis, or should she hide her gifts at all costs?
A thrilling futuristic fantasy in which the fate of the world's energy source is in the hands of a prince and princess who are rivals, by the New York Times-bestselling author of the Syrena Legacy.

One-word Review: ADVENTUROUS

My Review

I loved Nemesis! But I must admit, I was hesitant to read it for 2 reasons. 1. Joyride was okay but I wasn't in love. 2. I'm not a big fantasy lover.

Tag Line:

The princess didn't expect to fall in love--with her nemesis.

Opening Line:

If I were not such a coward, I would hurl myself from Nuna's back and plummet to the Underneath below.


Princess Sepora was a badass! I always love reading Young Adult books with a badass female heroine. Katniss Everdeen. Feyre Archeron . . .

Desperate to escape the grasp of her father, Princess Sepora flees to her enemies' territory under the guise of a peasant. With an interesting turn of events, Sephora is captured and sold to the palace.

The palace in the land ruled by her enemy, the handsome, kind new king . . .

I could not put this book down!

The pacing of Nemesis was perfect with the unfolding of the storyline. The writing was intriguing and encompassing. The world-building was real and sucked me into the story. Into the Sepora's world. is a YA Fantasy filled with romance, adventure and intrigue.

Sepora was her own woman. She stood up for herself and for what she believed in.

Tarik was a man to be respected. A strong man easy to love.

And the back and forth, the banter between them was delectable.

All in all, I loved Nemesis and if there is a sequel or if Anna Banks will write more books like it, I happily welcome it. If YA fantasy is your forte then you need to jump on
