In the heart-pounding conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Diabolic series, the Empire teeters on the edge of destruction as rumors spread that Nemesis is still alive.
Three years ago, Tyrus Domitrian shocked the galaxy by killing the woman he swore to love forever. The woman for whom he upended the Empire. The woman with whom he wanted to build a new and brighter future.
Now, the once-idealistic heir apparent has become the cruel Emperor Tyrus, wielding his authority with an iron fist, capable of destroying planets with a single word, controlling all technology with a simple thought. He has bent the Grandiloquy to their knees, and none has the power to stand against him.
But there is a muttering among the Excess. They say that Nemesis is not truly gone. They whisper of her shadow spotted in distant star systems. They say that Nemesis lives. That she will rise, and rally the people to topple the man who was once her truest love—and is now her fiercest enemy.

Another day another series finished. The Nemesis is the final book in SJ Kincaid’s Diabolic series and what a closer it is. I think that if you are looking for a science fiction series that explores politics and humanity but is also kind of brutal, you should be reading this series by SJ Kincaid. Personally, I appreciate getting closure on Nemesis, Tyrus, and the supporting characters. FYI, if you have not read The Diabolic and The Empress, it might be a good idea to stop reading this review and instead pick those books up as there be spoilers from here on out.

Kincaid’s The Nemesis opens up with the whole of the galaxy believing that Nemesis is dead. Only as we discover, she is alive and hiding out on a planet that does mining and has med bots with Anguish, another diabolic. However, there is a contingent of rebels who believe Nemesis is alive. As a matter of fact, she ends up being discovered and it is publicized. This is bad because as you may remember, Tyrus is now emperor, he is mad, and in pursuit of Nemesis. What happens is that she will end up leading a rebellion to bring the empire down and destroy the Grandilioquy.

This final book is a rollicking adventure. I am not generally one who enjoys space books, but let me tell you, I definitely enjoyed this book. The way Kincaid wraps this trilogy is brilliant. Granted, there was one thing that I did see coming. However, I was not sure how it would come to fruition or play out. I am just glad that it did. Yes, I am being purposefully vague because I don’t want to spoil you. I did love the development of Nemesis’s character and how even though she isn’t human because she is an engineered diabolic, she’s learned to love. She has learned to have a softer side. Still, she dominates and is the perfect person to lead the uprising. Action packed and thrilling — The Nemesis perfectly closes out the Diabolic trilogy.

  1. I haven’t read this one only because I was disappointed with the turn of events in the second book. I’m happy you had a good time reading it!
