What would you do if your beloved girlfriend suddenly became your worst enemy? That dilemma’s all too real for Syl Skye.
As the last princess of the fair Fae, Syl is all things brightness and sun and white flame, but even though she’s Summer incarnate, she’s drawn to Rouen Rivoche, the dark Fae princess-assassin of the Winter Court.

They should be mortal enemies, but they’re

Spoiler warning: this review contains minor spoilers for the series, but none for this specific book. If you've read this far in the series, you're good to go.

Every book in this series gets better, and Nemesis is no exception. I discovered this series right before Inimical (book 3) released. If you've read this far in the series you know that is the WORST one to end on because of what happens to Rouen. It was painful waiting for an entire year for the next main installment after reading 1 – 3 ba

Syl Skye and Rouen Rivoche are friends, best friends, lovers and soulmates with a soul-bond. Syl is the queen of the fair fae and Rouen is the queen of the dark fae and are the summer queen and the winter queen. The dark fae and the fair fae have been enemies for a very long time but when our two girls met they fell in love.

A spell has been cast on Rouen drawing her back to the Faerie realm to the winter court to server as their queen. War is about to be declared on the two Faerie realms destro

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, t

The epic battle is joined, with the multiverse in peril and the destruction of the Faerie realms all but certain in Nemesis, Book 4 of Genevieve Iseult Eldredge’s exciting Circuit Fae series. Regular readers will recall Syl Skye and Rouen Rivoche’s star-crossed romance from across the divide between the fair and dark Fae. The excitement begins on Page 1 with Syl fighting to save Rouen from darkness and their respective Summer and Winter Courts from imploding. Fasten your seatbelts for action spa ...more

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this ARC in return for an honest review.
Syl and Rouen continue their struggle to join the dark and fair faerie realms but their love for each other seems doomed as Miss Jardin tries to decimate the faerie realms in an attempt to rule the multiverse. Another gripping novel in the Circuit Fae series in which the reader is on a rollercoaster ride of emotional stress. I really enjoyed this ARC and look forward to the next episode in the s

OMG. Seriously, I can't believe how much I loved this book. Though I started really excited to read the continuation of Rouen and Syl's story, I couldn't believe how this installment had me turning the pages faster than ever. The pacing, the story, the angst, the love - man, this book has it all! I CANNOT wait for the final book - I want it like YESTERDAY! ...more

Syl and Roue are apart and really(?) enemies in this installment, with Syl in the mortal realm trying to stop the faerie world from 'bleeding' into it, whereas Roue is being Dark Queen, dealing with the fusing of the two courts and trying to save Winter. Everything is leading to war.

Eldredge's writing is like visiting one of those old friends with whom you automatically pick up where you left off, like no time has passed. I have always loved the sass of the protagonists in this series. Also the

This is my favorite Circuit Fae book so far! I LOVE Dark Rouen's voice and the broody prose is really beautiful in her chapters. Eldredge has a masterful way of blending humor with serious angst that is truly enjoyable. The action gets going right away and just keeps going. Even though this is the 7th book in the series, it stands alone and a new reader to the series would also love it. ...more

Nemesis is the fourth book in The Circuit Fae series, and it piqued my interest when it came up on an expresso tour with the tag line “What would you do if your beloved girlfriend became your worst enemy”. It has a synopsis speaking of dark spells, princess assassins and Faerie realms, IT’S QUEER and the tour blurb stated that it could be read as a standalone - how could I not sign up!

Yes, I did read it as a standalone and I did enjoy it. But the whole time I was wishing I’d got to see these two

Nemesis is the fourth book in the Circuit Fae series, and this one is a doozy. It packs a serious punch, and I definitely think it's the darkest book of the series.

If you haven't read any of the previous books, you need to do that ASAP. Seriously, they're so good! Plus, my review below may be mildly spoilery if you haven't read any of the others.

Syl Skye is the princess of the fair Fae — meaning all that is sun and summer. She is the opposite of Rouen Rivoche who is the princess of the dark Fae — meaning winter. They were once girlfriends that loved each other. Roue has fallen under a very dark spell making her forget the past, making her become a dark and cruel queen. She can use her magic on technology for killing. She wants all of the fair Fae to die especially Syl. Why? Why can’t Roue remember her love for Syl? When an enemy causes ...more

I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book, but the cover drew me in and seemed so fascinating! Right away my brain tried to compare it to something, but what? It has a similar *feeling* of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instrument series, but that's where the similarities stop.

I will admit I haven't read any of the other books, so I was a touch lost in the beginning, but that quickly went away the further into the story I went. I enjoyed the book, loved the dynamic of good versus evil, and the
I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley

As this series continues it feels more and more like it is being drawn out unnecessarily. I feel like most of the books just have the same overall plot and that in general not a lot of progress is made by the end. This one is a bit different as it does actually pick up in the last few chapters and there is satisfying progress in solving their overall problems, but it still seemed like slow going in the beginning. Pretty sure the next book is the

“I wasn’t sure what to expect about this book but it didn’t disappointed me. Every book in this series has their unique style that make every one of them splendid books but Nemesis was more than epic. I’m not so used into these topics so I must be honest and said that it was a challenge to me. The angst, the plot, the characters everything was so intense. I really enjoyed the story.”
