Diabolic (noun) a creation that is specifically designed to protect the one they are assigned to and are destined to kill in order to protect
This was a pretty neat story about a Diabolic known as Nemesis.. A creation that is designed to protect yet destined to destroy. Nemesis was created to protect a galactic Senator’s daughter: Sidonia. When Sidonia is summoned to the galactic court of a tyrant emperor, there’s only one way her Diabolic, Nemesis, can protect her – she must become Sidonia. When Nemesis assumes the role of the one she was created to protect, she has a lot to learn – downgrading her strength to assimilate in Court.
Whilst there, Nemesis learns the Empire is beginning to fracture and a rebellion looms closer, in forming the most unlikely of allies, Tyrus, Nemesis finds 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.
This book brought back memories of that 1997 Blockbuster “Face Off” starring John Travolta and Nicholas Cage where one was to assume the role of another to infiltrate gangsters and protect a family – so think “Face Off” but set somewhere in a distant galaxy where one of the galaxy’s most dangerous weapons is blending in among people in a world of corruption that is ruled with an iron fist. I found the book to be written very well, it was really fast paced and action packed with twists, turns, betrayal that leaves you feeling slapped in the face by the end. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend this to fans of YA Fantasy Fiction/Sci-Fi.
