I’ve read so many amazing books and while I would not say this series is amazing for me (probably because I’m not much of a space nerd) it was like political drama novel art. I couldn’t put it down. It got to 4AM at one point and I just had to finish it.
The Empress by S. J. Kincaid
The Empress is the second in the Diabolic series and I loved Diabolic, I liked how Nemesis struggled with her humanity and fighting against everyone’s beliefs as well as actually fighting. It was a fun action packed book and Empress did not disappoint. And there are so many points that I want to gush over but I feel like mentioning too much would be spoilery. This book has so many twists and turns its like nothing I’ve read in a long time. I hardly expected any of them and after a while it made me honestly dizzy! I was just along for the ride that was Empress.
I read this almost a year ago but I never considered writing a review, but after a small investigation in to where the hell is book 3 and realising it was projected for around this time and still is untitled and basically non-existent I thought I’d just mention this. It’s crazy because for as much as I’m aware Diabolic was a really hyped first novel. If anything I’d say Empress blew Diabolic out of the water. It was a rollercoaster ride of feelings, I was excited, happy, sad, angry, down-right confused(in a good way). My only real gripe about this book was Tyrus, he seems too infallible. While I really enjoyed this read and it put me on a bit of a book slump because I was just left reeling. When the next book comes out I have a feeling Tyrus is going to annoy me a lot in the next book. However, I want to see how this crazy space drama plays out. YA novels as of late seem slightly on the predictable side and the Diabolic series is anything but predictable.
Check it out even if you’re not super in to sci-fi, I don’t even like Star Wars that much (don’t hate me) but I could still enjoy this series.
