I really like Nemesis but I can't continue with the huge plot holes. I have way too many questions about the basic world building and technology. If science and learning are outlawed, then how were Diabolics created? It makes them seem like a new creation, but isn't new science outlawed? And where d...

"The Diabolic" was intense, sophisticated YA Science Fiction that gripped my imagination, engaged my emotions and kept surprising me. “The Diabolic” was one of those rare books that I slid right into. It lit up my imagination and pulled on my emotions as if it had been tailor-made to feed my hunge...

~~~~DNF~~~~ I tried...The fact that a slew of you LOVED this book kept me going as far as I did but I just can't do it. I made it to 56% but I couldn't scrounge up enough interest in all things Diabolic AND since there are so many yummmy books out there I'm moving on. There was nothing horribly wr...

A lot of good ideas in this book, and I really liked the first part... but it started to go downhill when the Mandatory YA Het Romance plot waltzed in. I felt there were so many other ways the whole 'Diabolic without emotions may actually discover her humanity' could have unfolded, instead of romanc...

The Diabolic is the first in a new series of the same name by author S.J. Kincaid. The book is science fiction in every sense of the world. It takes place in the distant future that in no way resembles are own. The power structure is an Empire and it is based on a sun religion. The Grandoliloqy are ...

This took a while to grow on me, but in the end I liked it more than that. Its a fairly slow paced science fiction type of book. There is more romance than not. Which I didn't necessarily want in this story, but the characters are enjoyable enough that you might not mind the relationships. The endin...

There's no one Nemesis wouldn't kill to keep her safe. But when the power-mad Emperor summons Sidonia to the galactic court as a hostage, ...

S.J. Kincaid tells a great story. Too bad no one knows about her. The Insignia Trilogy is her first, and it's worth checking out if you like YA light ScyFy that skews more toward young than adult and more toward fy than scy. It started out fun and got to brilliant by the third book. The Diabolic...
