Review quote

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. ...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 "If you have readers begging for fantasy or romance, toss this their way. Then stand back and say, "You're welcome" -- VOYA, starred reviewshow more
