Nemesis (Nemesis #1) by Anna Banks (Review)

    Addicting, romantic and wonderfully creative, Nemesis throws readers into a wonderful magical world that seems to contain a fun hodgepodge of different environments varying from ancient Egypt to medieval times. In this world Princess Sepora is running away from her evil tyrant of a father to prevent a major and violent war. During her escape she is thrust into the royal court of the Pharaoh Tarik, a kind you ruler of an opposing kingdom, and things grow more and more complicated as she tries to help his people from within his court without revealing her own secret powers.
     I loved Nemesis! Its amazing storytelling and fantastic character development had me engaged from page one. I loved both Sepora and Tarik infinitely. Sepora is an honourable, strong and intelligent character that is both emotionally deep and not whinny. That is a combo I have noticed to be surprisingly hard to come by in young adult novels. Tarik is a gentile, wise and intense romantic lead that takes the big and un-relatable challenge of ruling a kingdom at 18 and makes it something believable to readers from this century. On top of those two, there was a whole host of characters that just enriched the story along side them. Surround that with the amazingly engaging plot and you have an amazing book. I definitely recommend Nemesis and give it the rating of FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS!
