I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.
Nemesis (Nemesis, 1) by Anna Banks, October 4, 2016. Published by Feiwel & Friends. Source: Wishlist.
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.
Why: To be honest, the cover is the main thing that piqued my curiosity. It was just so unique with the girl painted silver that I had to check it out. That and the title; Nemesis, that's a name to catch the eye. I'm actually really excited about this one and plotting when I should read it.
Judging by the title and cover, it looks to be interesting. I also really enjoyed one of Anna Banks' other books, so this, in theory, should be another winner, too.
