Hush, let’s pretend that my “The Greatest” phrase totally landed.
But anyways, can I convey how in love I am with this book??
It had everything. The beautiful plot, setting, writing, characters, and romance. *sigh*
She must become her.
Now one of the galaxy’s most dangerous weapons is masquerading in a world of corruption, Nemesis has to hide her true abilities or risk everything. As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns that there is something stronger than her deadly force: the one thing she’s been told she doesn’t have – humanity. And, amidst all the danger, action and intrigue, her humanity might be the only thing that can save her, Sidonia and the entire Empire…
ALL THE STARS!!! Aka, five. Because I’m only a potato who can’t afford that many stars. (Stars are pretty expensive. They cost ten souls.)
This book is so good. I cannot comprehend how much you need to read this book, right now.
The Diabolic is fast paced book that will pretty much keep you reading the whole book in one go.
*coughs* That’s what I did.
The Diabolic also has a ferociously loveable main character, a wonderful setting, and a beautiful style of writing that helps you get in touch with Nemesis’ feelings.
This book takes place in space in a high-tech area, where Nemesis is a Diabolic, people engineered to serve others.
Nemesis is confident, skilled, and will fight you.
And even though she’s dark and stabby, I loved her so much. There’s an aspect of this book that’s basically Nemesis trying to become more human and when she embraces those emotions it’s just honestly so cute.
This book is even funny! I laughed out loud (like, OUT LOUD. I only do that every gazillion books.) at Nemesis’ shenanigans.
THEY CALLED EACH OTHER SCORPIONS. I am in love with this book.
The relationships in this book are skillfully done. Nemesis is best friends with this girl: Sidonia. Sidonia is a Senator’s daughter, so she has wealth and prestige. But Sidonia isn’t mean or cruel like those stereotypical “mean girls.” She’s kind.
I love their friendship. Sidonia and Nemesis care about each other a lot. Sometimes it was hard for Nemesis to show her love for Sidonia, but it’s still obvious how much she cares for Sidonia.
Their relationship was touching, and it was nice to see a supportive female relationship in a book.
Onto the romance. The romance was cute and they had so much chemistry! Tyrus is dark and stabby in his own way and together they become the best stabby and manipulative couple ever. Tyrus helps Nemesis be in touch with her human side, and it’s so cute watching Nemesis trying to come out of her robotic shell.
I had ALL the feels for this couple. The romance isn’t a huge focus, but it comes more into play near the end, which I loved. They build off an uneasy friendship where they’re both weary of each other stabbing their backs. I loved watching their relationship build up. The banter is also A++. I LOVE ALL THE BANTER.
Also I LOVE the whole political manipulation theme. I just love it. Am I very weird for being in love with a royal political manipulation theme? Well, probably.
Do you reading political manipulation plot twist books? Do you like Sci-fi? Do you like getting hurt by a book because I will do that if you don’t read???
And yes, that sentence is totally grammatically correct what are you talking about.
