"Nemesis, the Diabolic, and Tyrus face new challenges and old enemies as Tyrus ascends to the throne, and the two struggle to prove Nemesis' humanity to those who oppose her position as Empress and keep them from full power over the galaxy"-- Provided by publisher.
Tyrus has ascended to the throne with Nemesis by his side. But having power isn't the same thing as keeping it, and change isn't always welcome. The ruling class, the Grandiloquy, has held control over planets and systems for centuries-- and they are plotting to stop this teenage Emperor and Nemesis, who is considered nothing more than a creature and certainly not worthy of being Empress. Nemesis cannot protect Tyrus by being the killing machine she once was. But if proving her humanity means that she and Tyrus must do inhuman things, is the fight worth the cost of winning it?

Though with a disappointing ending(sequel? Don't ask me.), the bulk of this novel was a great expansion from its predecessor, moving into Tyrus's role as king, and his continuing feud with Senator Pasus(to my delight.) Even with the shocking but never truly gripping ending, this book still get's a 9/10, and a "Strongly Recommend Reading" review.

“The Diabolic” has remained a favourite for me, with it’s action packed events and bold characters in a scifi-dystopian. However, this sequel just didn’t cut out for the high expectations it’s first installment set. I lacked the compassion I had with characters and the didn’t understand what the purpose was. Nemesis seemed even more distant and cold than before, and the romance I was rooting for in book 1 just got in the way. Up until the 70% mark, nothing made sense. But then, Sincaid hits back with a crazy, twisted ending that will have you itching for the final book. Rating 3/5
