Waiting on Wednesday – Week 167

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight upcoming books that I'm DYING to get my hands on!

This week's WoW is:
Nemesis by Anna Banks

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?

I got to meet the very lovely Anna Banks at the Boston Teen Author Festival last year. I read and absolutely LOVED Of Poseidon, but unfortunately never got around to reading the rest of the series for some odd reason. Anyway, I love the sound of this one–I'm a sucker for a good fantasy, and will admit that reading about someone falling for the enemy is always a guilty pleasure. Can't wait for this one! Also, THAT COVER IS GORGE.

What are you waiting on?


  1. I keep seeing this book. I hope you love it!

  2. I can't wait for this as well!

  3. OMG!! That is one GORGEOUS cover!! I love the detail! I'm a very visual person, so book covers invariably influence my decision to buy a book. However, I also love the plot of this one! AWESOME pick!! I'm heading over to Goodreads to add it now!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Book Blogger Hop post!! I'm now following you on GFC. Happy Reading!! :)
