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?

Nemesis by Anna Banks >> Simply Adrift
  • Nemesis was exactly what I was looking for after being in a reading slump and was a lot of fun to read for many reasons.
  • You pick up this book expecting a light Young Adult; but what you get is an in-depth, well structured and clear story.
  • The story is told from both Sepora and Tarik. This makes a great story from alternating views without ruining anything.

What I liked

  • The world of Nemesis was very vibrant and clear. I could actually see the world beyond the characters.
  • The background and history of both Serubel and Theoria were detailed, very different and easy to tell apart. I loved that the history from both places was clear and easy to remember – I really hate it when a book isn’t clear on a worlds history, it gets confusing fast.
  • The characters were very fleshed out and solid. They had emotions and thoughts and it was so easy to read each person, it was easy to tell them a part as well.
  • The romance was a slow burn and entertaining to read. Slow burn romances are the best.

What I didn’t like

  • There’s a point in the book when Sepora does the one thing she’s been trying to not do the whole book, I felt like it was too easy for her and that there were no consequences. The stakes had been high throughout the whole book, then suddenly the stakes don’t matter any more. I was confused.
  • The sequel to Nemesis is so far away!

Have you read Nemesis? What did you think? Did you enjoy this as much as I did?
