“I found the writing to be on par with Queen [Sarah J. ] Maas and Elise Kova; I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy read that steps out of the box and makes a name for itself.” – FairestSkyeBooks
The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . NEMESIS (Circuit Fae, #4) . . . You have to pick this up if you have read any of the previous books. I would say the same if you have not. You would enjoy the rich blend of characters, world building, and the creativity of what happens when it all goes down south very quickly.
Watching Syl and Rouen be at odds was this time around was a bit different than the previous encounters. Yes, the are dating (or at least what they constitute dating). Yes, the love each other. Yes, they are both queens in their prospective court. Yes, they are on opposing sides. But there something different in the steps, the process, the decision. Syl and Rouen have to complete this dance and make it though the round for it all to make sense and for some light to shine on something more.
This fourth full-length installment has a greater intensity than experienced with the other read from this series with the same young ladies running the show. The characters feel more developed, like growth has occurred. While at the same time you almost feel that things are just repeating themselves. It may feel that way but I assure you this was a completely different ride all together.
The writing is there. The character full. The plot brings you closer to something big. The way it all combines gives you a read that was full. The world building and crafting of characters helped to develop another level or layer to the story. I found it all enjoyable.
What would you do if your beloved girlfriend suddenly became your worst enemy?
That dilemma’s all too real for Syl Skye, the last princess of the fair Fae. Even though Syl is all things sun and Summer, she’s drawn to her polar opposite, Rouen Rivoche, the dark Fae princess-assassin of the Winter Court.
They should be mortal enemies, but they’re best friends. Girlfriends. In love. That is, until Roue falls under a dark spell that makes her forget all about Syl, their lives and their love. Now Roue rules Dark Faerie as a cruel and cold Queen. A Circuit Fae who can harness the killing magic in technology, she wants nothing more than to destroy Syl and her fair Fae people.
But when an old enemy brings both Faerie realms to the brink of destruction, only their queens, Syl and Rouen, can save the day—and only if they can put their differences aside for two seconds and team up.
With the clock’s ticking on Syl and Roue’s relationship—not to mention all of Faerie—will Rouen remember the love she and Syl once shared, or is she destined to be Syl’s nemesis forever?
Raised by witches and dragons in the northern wilds, GIE writes angsty urban fantasy YA romance–where girls who are mortal enemies kick butt, take names, and fall in love against all odds.
She enjoys long hikes in the woods (where better to find the fair folk?), believing in fairies (in fact, she’s clapping right now), dancing with dark elves (always wear your best shoes), being a self-rescuing princess (hello, black belt!), and writing diverse books about teenage girls finding love, romance, and their own inner power.
She might be planning high tea at the Fae Court right now.
GIE is multi-published, and in her role as an editor has helped hundreds of authors make their dream of being published a reality.
