Nemesis by Anna Banks (Nemesis book 1)
“She 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 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 may be able to save Tarik’s kingdom. But should she risk exposing herself and her growing feelings for her nemesis?” - taken from Goodreads.com
I wasn’t sure about this book in the first couple of chapters trying to figure out this new world that the author built but I am so glad I stuck with it. I loved Sepora and Tarik’s interactions and the build up of their relationship. The ending completely shocked me and sets up book two nicely. I also love how the titles relate to the story lines.
Book two, Ally, is due out in 2017.
