“I would rather hide in desolation and poverty, whether it be in the Baseborn Quarters or the Tenantless, than be the cause of thousands of deaths in all the five kingdoms.” 


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? 

Personal Experiences

What an insane roller coaster, my friends. Beautiful work of art. Nemesis was filled with love, fantasy, hardship, pain, loss, and desire. It was a mix of emotions, and a tangle of words I was unable to put down. Well done, Anna Banks, well done.

I loved this book. Loved it with my entire being. I stayed up well into the night to finish reading this creation. The characters draw you in from the first page, and leave you hanging well after the last word. I can’t wait to read Ally, the second book in the series.
