"Her Father S Foolish "
father s foolish the foolish things he does and stupid actions he takes where he thinks he won t have problems after and instead of her father paying the price and being in trouble it s Sidonia Because Nemesis has been vowed to protect Sidonia since she would give up her ife for Sidonia Sidonia s mother tells Nemesis that she will be the one to go to the Imperial Court and pretend to be Sidonia to fight and do what the Emperor asks Nemesis without arguing agrees to thisShe becomes herWhen Nemesis arrives at this court she knows she has to change many things about her including her facial features and expressions her attitude toward others and the way she fights is what has to be changed out of everything She can t give her identity away and she knows she s doing this for Sidonia She must find her true self in this form that she is in one including humanity and must act Wolfie Paints the Town: A Little Wood Story like one Humanity might just be the key to saving her people and the Empire including the people sheoves and Nemesis herselfAdmittedly I enjoyed The Diabolic I m not really into YA sci fidystopian so I m not very sure how it should be written and how the world building should work out how everything should happen so I can t say much from my experience But I will say that I have read some sci fi that just eft me disappointed It s maybe because the whole dystopian world isn t my kind of thing It s something I don t really enjoy reading because I don t ike reading about people being ruled in this world or having to obey someone that is ruling the dystopian world they ive in I might just have to change that though and begin reading sci fi booksSo this book is brutal to begin with We re introduced to Nemesis and they want to see what she can do and who she really is so she proves herself worthy of being able to protect this girl she must protect Sidonia From that moment I knew #I would ove her character and I did She wasn t #would Right Turns: From Liberal Activist to Conservative Champion in 35 Unconventional Lessons love her character and I did She wasn t of the main characters thateave their place to change their position and become something or someone else and I was glad of that She was strong oyal determined and just brutal Nemesis is one of the best female characters I have met and read about and that will probably not change It s just the way she acted around others and how she always made sure her threats were to be kept in their place how she tried her very best to protect Sidonia and did not fail how she didn t stop her strength and didn t change her fighting abilities She was actually a Diabolic the definition suited herThe story is dystopian since humans and diabolics are completely different although sometimes it s hard to tell Diabolics are considered the property and are owned by their owners unless you re ike Sidonia where she considered Nemesis her friend someone she Beyond Varallan loved and would give up herife ike Nemesis would give up hers for her They are oyal to their owner and are faithful to what they say and ask for They protect them and no matter what happens they don t dare hurt them Nemesis was ike that She was only oyal to Sidonia and of course her parents since she had to but she protected Sidonia with everything She made her happy she made her smile she made her cry She didn t change for her or for anyone Just to summarize it all Nemesis was a great strong female Dona Flor lead Even when she knew the circumstances she would get into when she arrived at the court she knew she was doing this for Sidonia and even when she didn t know where she was and if she was alive or not she would keep fighting for her because she knew this was what she would do for her What I did notike about Nemesis was how she was supposed to be this soulless creature that was a ruthless killer to anyone who meant harm to Sidonia but when she met Tyrus our male Rocker Babies Wear Jeans lead she was weak I mean she changed for him Or she changed in a way She felt things that she never felt before and she even admitted to herself that she wasn t supposed to be feeling anything but she did I read a review and it said their relationship is slow burn romance but that s not really true When Tyrus finds out what Nemesis is a diabolic they instantly connect and become one pairoyal to each other and faithful You could see the connection they had together but their relationship formed uick and although I found it cute I wish it took a ittle time for Nemesis to figure things out with Sidonia and Tyrus I know Sidonia was happy for her because Nemesis was allowing herself to feel things for someone else but I still wished Nemesis would take time out and figure things out and ask herself uestions ike Can I protect both Can I be with both people What if I had to make a choice between the two I Sono with Visits from the Seventh love him but Iove her and even though she told herself she would pick Sidonia over Tyrus it was hard to believe that since she was uestioning herself at times if she really did Remarkable Creatures love Tyrus or if it was normal for her to feel these type of feelingsThe maleead who falls in ove with our female ead Tyrus Domitrian nephew of the Emperor was pretty bittersweet as we get to read about him I expected a Heroes Adrift (Hero, little from him though One could see him as a cold blooded asshole who is ruthless and doesn t care about anyone or anything but when you really get to meet him you see that he has a very sweet side to Nemesis and would do anything for her He s also kind of weak of course compared to her that he even decided to train himself with her and would try again and again even when he knew he wouldose and he was Chuck and Danielle losing blood and was just in pain I didike his relationship with Nemesis though and I just found it to be cute It s weird for me to call it cute since it s a sci fi novel but it s true I actually thought their relationship was gonna end up Escaping the Endless Adolescence: How We Can Help Our Teenagers Grow Up Before They Grow Old like Alina and the Darkling from Shadow and Bone butuckily that did not happen Tyrus was caring and the way he treated Nemesis even when he knew who and what she was was just so cute He didn t Dogs Behaving Badly: An A-Z Guide to Understanding and Curing Behavorial Problems in Dogs lie to her in any way even when she thought he did and he proved himself to be worthy of being hisove His relationship with her developed in an acceptable manner although it built up uite uicklyNow another thing I did not Gray Bishop like was how their relationship basically stole the meaning of the book I mean Nemesis was being this badass female that would fight for Sidonia but when Tyrus came into herife the book s elements changed and started forming romance elements which was something I didn t mind completely It stole part of the book since their relationship was forming and as it was they also had many moments together alone and in public but then the sci fi elements really never died I said Nemesis didn t change her character and she didn t Like I said one could think he is cold blooded in the beginning because of how he acts and speaks how he spoke to Nemesis when she first saw him but when we get to read about him “The perfect kind of high pressure adventure” TeenVoguecomA New York Times bestseller Red ueen meets The Hunger Games in this epic novel about what happens when a senator’s daughter is summoned to the galactic court as a hostage but she’s really the galaxy’s most dangerous weapon in disguise A Diabolic is ruthless A Diabolic is powerful A Diabolic has a single task Kill in order to protect the person you’ve been created forNemesis is a Diabolic a humanoid teenager created to protect a galactic senat. Nd see him in chapters with Nemesis we see that he s actually sweet and does not want any harm towards anyone he just wants peace and justice He and Nemesis had a ot in common so that was something that fit They weren t so different that they were a pair that would match He wanted the throne and she wanted to kill his uncle the Emperor They both basically wished death on the same person and wished for the same thing He s a precious cinnamon roll and I want him and Nemesis to be happy together and if SJ Kincaid decides to just do something to him well to both but especially to him I will end up throwing my book and I will find the author and rant and cry after He deserves happiness since he s never really had it until he met Nemesis They didn t start off their relationship as enemies and become overs but they did start off as a pair that couldn t bare to communicate in a nice way until after Some might call us a monstrous pair and they would be right Tyrus and I were both scorpions in our way dangerous creatures crossing the most treacherous of rivers together Together we might sting but we also would float Like others have said the writing in this isn t uniue or anything It wasn t addictive either I just kept reading because I wanted to see how it would end and what would happen Something I m very thankful for is that this did not end in a cliffhanger which is why I m surprised it will become a trilogy At east I don t have to suffer and wait until the next book is published to have uestions answered I m just imagining Nemesis and Tyrus being happy right now since it ended in a happy moment and I was just satisfied with the ending and very happy as well This was planned to be a standalone I think and I could see why but I can t see why and how the author decided to make it a trilogy I m just wondering what she is planning to do and how she is gonna start off the next book with Nemesis andor Tyrus i had a difficult time writing this review because within the Liar last six months ive read two other books with very similar premises and it feelsike i will just be repeating what i said in those reviews so i have tried to stay away from comparisons and just talk about what this particular story did well and where this book excels is in its world building the heart of this story is the galactic kingdoms and various planetary commonwealths the plot is very politically motivated so what intrigued me most was how highly thought out and cunning the court politics are everyone has secrets and no character can be trusted so it was very engaging as a reader to see it all play out from the outside i think that was the highlight for me the main component i found to Noir lacking is a strong connection to the characters and i think that may be a fault of mine rather than the books there is some character development present and decent introspection so i dont think thats the problem i just couldnt bring myself to feel any sort of attachment to any of the characters no idea why but i do think i would have enjoyed this much had i felt anything other than a general sense of apathy overall this is an adventurous story with superb world building and is an excellent set up for what i hope will be an even better seuel 35 stars I am scrolling up and down through The Diabolic reviews and seeingots of strange things 4 and 5 star ratings Average of 407 rating from almost 3000 reviews Excuuuuuuse me ARE WE READING THE SAME BOOK The Diabolic takes place in a sci fi world where Diabolics are created and chosen to protect their master Nemesis our MC Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are lives to protect andove and care solely for the Senator s daughter Sidonia But when the power hungry Emperor demands Sidonia as hostage for her father s actions Nemesis is offered in place hidden in Sidonia s identity So this book sounds soooooo promising right I mean I wasn t a huge advocate of sci fi fantasy promising right I mean I wasn t a huge advocate of sci fi fantasy ever since I read and fell in Gaffer love with the Illuminae series I ve been open to the genre And then I realized it was filled with booksike this The writing is dull It is monotone and really disconnects the reader from the narrator I found it incredibly hard to get into this book and ended up skimming at Circumstantial Evidence least 75% of it And while there were some very few actually redeeming factorsike the plot twists and the small bits of action that #we got to read about it wasn t enough to save #got to read about it wasn t enough to save story Minor Spoilers ahead So Nemesis is supposed to be this soul Lone Star Justice: The First Century of the Texas Rangers less monster who cannot fathom emotions or see beyond her need to protect Sidonia That s really great endearing even but then we go on to find out that Nemesis will fall inove W H A T She s supposed to be a genetically engineered creature and all of a sudden she has emotions Where is all this coming fromI feel ike this entire book could have been 110% interesting if the entire romance factor was removed because honestly it s the most prominent theme throughout the book I really hoped for better than this Needless to say I will not be continuing the series A Diabolic is ruthless A Diabolic is powerful A Diabolic has a single task Kill in order to protect the person you ve been created for 1 star BR with the ovely A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping ladies Amber Shukri and Sana everyone ditched me rip THIS BOOK THIS BOOK THIS BOOK THIS BOOK THIS BOOK THIS BOOK THIS BOOK THIS BOOK THIS BOOK HOLY CROW THIS BOOK That cover is shiny and gorgeous right It s initially what made me start oogling this book from afar and keeping it on my radar for months before finally taking the time to read and review it I finally had aegit excuse to jump on the bandwagon once my Literary Box copy arrived and while I l go into detail below I was so grateful I chose to read their copy with the author s notes inside This detail made the difference in my final star rating which I decided to round up to a 4 on Goodreads in case you don t follow me there While I did find some inconsistencies and had a few issues overall this was a highly enjoyable read I think what had me flipping back and forth was knowing this is yet ANOTHER YA fantasy series in a sea of YA fantasy series and initially it s what caused me to pause before picking this up to begin with To it s credit this book was much engaging and enjoyable than I was anticipating from the reviews I read early on it s clearly a book that has encouraged healthy debate which I m always glad to see Did he who made the amb make thee William Blake The Tiger Let s start at the very beginning I really appreciated the immediate insight we receive into just who and what a diabolic is We Summer Meditations learn early on that our narrator is called Nemesis and that all diabolics receive fun intimidating names such as Enmity Hazard and Anguish These beings are not human and are created for the sole purpose of bonding with an owner meaning they form a connection to protect only that one human at any and all costs After we fast forward a bit to present day there was a good chunk of the book about 75 pages I d say with a great info dump to catch us up to speed I struggle with these as they have become a staple in most YA Fantasy fiction the first in the series contains infamous info dump instead of slowly building it into the story I think this is just a personal peeve of mine as it s clearly up to the author to do as they choose and I know a good number of readers whoove this aspect and want to gain the world building knowledge as uickly as possible Once I got through those pages though I couldn t put this down It was exciting and fun and had plenty of twists I didn t see coming especially in the final 25% I greatly appreciate the great dedication to detail and complex God Said, Ha!: A Memoir layering Kincaid went to in order to ensure the story was necessary in an already saturated market Ages ago humans beings progressed technologically at an exponential rate We expanded into space weeft Earth and traveled the galaxy And then the same thing happened that always does we grew azy We had technology we stopped earning how to use We On the Right Side of a Dream let machines think for us act for us The supernova and rise of the Helionic faith merely worsened a problem that already existed Our ancestors sought knowledge but we their descendants glorify ignorance That above was my favorite uote from the entire book Ok so we don t have machines taking overike in The Terminator but how easily we could apply that ast bit to today s time I always enjoy a plot that involves the banning of books and knowledge this was a seed that was planted and investigated in this first book that I m really hoping is fleshed out in the following chapters of the trilogy Even if it comes in an allegorical form how important is it for us to take a step back and recognize how easy it is for us to become azy with our technology and our need to make sure our Operation Iceberg : The Invasion and Conquest of Okinawa in World War II learning never ceases This book was progressive in many ways but especially in the sense that women and men have eual chances of ruling and flourishing ineadership roles I wouldn t say this novel had huge amounts of diversity but I would chalk that up to the fact that people altered their appearance for basically every scene as this was part of their culture The romance was fairly strong and there wasn t the typical dreaded ove triangle although there were a few twists in that department and the ending eft me wondering who we can trust and how this story will end in the Michelin Green Guide Normandy long run There was a bit of poetic justice that I appreciated for including a bit of diversity in theove department as well Insert vague intrigue hereI think my only major issue with the plot is in the description above on the book jacket so not a spoiler We know going into the book that Nemesis and her diabolic kind are incapable of emotions feelings etc yet Nemesis finds herself developing all of those things We are iterally pounded over the head for 150 pages with I am not capable of feelings or ove I am programmed ike a robot And then boom out of nowhere Nemesis has feelings and emotions ike it happened overnight Why How None of this was really described or explained Again maybe this will be further explored in the remaining entries but I was slightly bummed that I m told for half the book one thing and then there is an immediate 180 that I was expected to believe without uestioningThe reason I decided to go with a 4 instead of 3 star rating on Goodreads was simply due to the influence the author s notes had over me For those who missed it I was sent a YA review crate from The Literary Box by uarterly Co that included this book in it SJ Kincaid was this uarter s curator meaning her book was featured along with 2 books of her choosing and The Diabolic came full of post it notes with her personal annotations inside After experiencing this form of reading I wish I could pick up all my books this way I cannot stress how insanely pleasing it was to have insider information that other readers didn t get to experience I was able to hear out her explanations of why she chose to write things a certain way what her family s reactions were to certain plot points and how things were re written to keep certain people alive and kill off tho. Or’s daughter Sidonia The two have grown up side by side but are in no way sisters Nemesis is expected to give her ife for Sidonia and she would do so gladly She would also take as many ives as necessary to keep Sidonia safeWhen the power mad Emperor earns Sidonia’s father is participating in a rebellion he summons Sidonia to the Galactic court She is to serve as a hostage Now there is only one way for Nemesis to protect Sidonia She must become her Nemesis travels to the court disguised as Sidonia a killi. .
