[REVIEW] The Diabolic

Let me preface this review by saying that this is one of the best books I have read in a while. The Diabolic written by S.J. Kincaid is definitely one that everyone should read. This undercover story begins with Nemesis, the diabolic hired to protect Sidonia Impyrean. Diabolics are genetically modified humans meant to serve and protect at all costs. Nemesis is led through many trials to see how far her limits can be tested to protect the one she is bonded to.

After reading Exile, I was pleased to find out that this book is also space themed. My liking for the far reaches of the galaxy only intensified even further. This is a Sci-fi/Action book filled with non-stop action and fast plot movement. Every chapter was different from the next and I cannot wait to read the next book!

Oh No’s

The terminology was a little hard for me to understand. Maybe it was the way it was explained but I needed a bit more information about these religions and the many names that are thrown around. Helios, grandee, grandiloquy. So many names were used but not defined. A glossary in the back would have been great.

DO NOT READ THE TITLE OF THE SECOND BOOK. This totally ruined my view of the entire book. Everything was so crazy when truths were revealed that I couldn’t stop reading. But all throughout, I knew how it would end because I saw the next title when shopping. 😦


To put it simply, this book took me three work days to read. I binge read this through every break and all the time I had at home. I will be giving this book a full five stars and I’m so excited to read the second book (when I’m not on a book buying ban).

Nemesis is such a great character. Her character development was astounding and though a bit fast, it was understandable to get the plot moving. I’m a sucker for “revealing” the big secret to people and the fact that this happens over and over again in this book was such satisfaction. I truthfully suggest reading this book.

I wholly recommend giving this book a read. I bought this book at Barnes and Noble after seeing the cover and liking how it looked. I was definitely not let down.

    You mentioned that knowing the title of the second book is kind of a spoiler. Could you tell me how many books there are in this series so I don’t have to look it up and ruin possible surprises?

    2. Actually, after more research, it looks like there is an “Untitled” third book in the making but it doesn’t look confirmed! Hope this helps!
