“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
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?

My Review
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 is struggling to come to terms with the fact that Rouen may be lost to her thanks to the Darksider spell she's under, courtesy of one Miss Jessamine Jardin (aka the school librarian). But even though Rouen is now hell-bent on destroying Syl and the Fair Faerie realm, Syl is still determine to try and find a way to save her. Does she succeed, or is Rouen too far gone to be saved?
I have to say, I quite enjoyed Nemesis. It's a crazy whirlwind of emotions that will have readers eagerly devouring the pages, wondering what could possibly happen next and hoping things get better rather than worse. 
Syl and Rouen (and their friends) are put through the ringer in this book. It's utter insanity at times, and I absolutely loved every moment of it. I think Nemesis may be my favorite book of the entire series.
There are some fascinating secrets that come to light, and loads of action, mayhem, and romance. There's something for everyone, and I know Nemesis (and the previous books) will appeal to fans of YA fantasy/paranormal/LGBT romance. 
I can't wait for book five!
4.5 stars from me!
Author Bio:
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.
