About the Book:

Nemesis by Anna Banks
Book One of the Nemesis series
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Publication Date: October 4, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

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?

My favorite quotes:

Either way, Sepora is not here with the Falcon King; she is here with Tarik. And he enjoys that more than he should.

- ARC, page 225

I'm a bit unsettled at how easily I refer to him as Tarik in my mind instead of the kin, and once again I'm confronted with how I should feel about things instead of how I actually do feel about things.

- ARC, page 231

"Yes, I did bring you here to woo you," he says softly. "But no, not for spectorium." And he lowers his mouth to mine.

- ARC, page 244

I do not have to be a Lingot to know that Tarik is asking me a question with this kiss.

- ARC, page 290
