Synopsis:

There are winged horses that live in the mirrors of Briar Hill hospital. In the mirrors that line its grand hallways, which once belonged to a princess. In those that reflect the elegant rooms, now filled with sick children. It is her secret.

One morning, when Emmaline climbs over the wall of the hospital’s abandoned gardens, she discovers something incredible: a white horse with broken wings has left the mirror-world and entered her own.

 Tucked into the garden’s once-gleaming sundial, Emmaline finds a letter from the Horse Lord. He is hiding the wounded white horse, named Foxfire, from a dark and sinister force—a Black Horse who hunts by colorless moonlight. If Emmaline is to keep the Black Horse from finding her new friend, she must collect colorful objects with which to blind …

Addiction Fiction Friday: Nemesis by Anna Banks ~ Promo Post

Image
Welcome to Addiction Fiction Friday where we feature a book of fiction that will become your new addiction. Today I am excited to bring you Nemesis by Anna Banks!
This book was so flippin fantastic. Anna has such a knack for bringing her humor into the banter of her characters. I was shutting my book laughing so hard at the banter between Sepora and the kings brother. The world building was stunning. I created a mood board of what I envisioned from moments in the book.
Sepora is a fun and fiesty character. Tarik is patient and humble. I wanted a Serpen and a Patra a giant cat so badly. I never expected the egyptian vibe but I dug it. I can not wait for more of this world to be uncovered in the series. The Parani are awesome sea creatures. Yes Anna gave us a sea creature! 

Nemesis is not a book to be missed. Nemesis had it all deception, romance, humor, bravery, loyalty and a vivid world unlike any other.
I will be posting a full review closer to release!
