by Banks, Anna

"A futuristic fantasy in which the fate of the world's energy source is in the hands of a prince and princess who are rivals"-

Anna Banks is the author of the New York Times-bestselling Syrena Legacy: Of Poseidon, Of Triton, and Of Neptune(all Fierce Reads titles), as well as the standalone novel, Joyride. She lives in Crestview, on the Florida Panhandle, with her husband and their daughter.

In the kingdom of Serubel, Princess Sepora has the peculiar talent of secreting precious metal from her hands, which is essential to her father's war efforts; but she prefers running away to building more weaponry. Prince Tarik is the newly crowned king of Theoria, and his immediate worries include a mysterious plague that is killing his people and the imminent threat of an attack from Serubel. When Sepora turns up as a very reluctant member of Tarik's inherited harem, sparks fly. 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. The story unfolds through alternating chapters, although Sepora's chapters are told in first person, while Tarik's are third-person omniscient, tipping the narrative toward Sepora's point of view. 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.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Banks' Syrena Legacy series was a best-seller, and her fans will be eager to get their hands on her newest endeavor.
