Nemesis by Anna Banks.

Loved the story, look forward to the next book. Not a fan of the cover. Our two main characters are Sepora, a princess and Tarik, now king, both are from two different kingdoms. Sepora, with the help of her mother, escapes on a dragon from her kingdom when she finds out her father, the king is going to use her powers as a weapon. Sepora feels she can protect herself but quickly is hit on the head and ends up for sale at a bazaar, then ends up in Tarik’s harem. We quickly see her strength and intelligence and Tarik’s strong leadership as king. This was a great read, told in two POV’s and shows their doubts and concerns for each kingdom as their feelings toward each other deepen. Highly recommend.

Description


A princess on the run. A kingdom in peril. An unlikely bond. Can she trust her nemesis?

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, from Anna Banks, the New York Times-bestselling author of the Syrena Legacy

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 gift at all costs?

"Interactions between Sepora and Tarik are right on target in terms of tenor and pacing, and the few stolen kisses and caresses are doubly satisfying because of that. . . . This combination fantasy-romance novel touches on issues of trust, allegiance, priorities, and self-sacrifice and ends in a bit of a cliff-hanger. First in a planned duet, Nemesis will leave readers wanting more." —Booklist

"With a lush weaving of magical cultures, war, romance, truth, and lies, Banks has created a unique, fascinating world brimming with intrigue. I couldn't turn the pages of Nemesis fast enough." —Mary Pearson, New York Times-bestselling author of The Remnant Chronicles
