Teen Librarian Pleasantly Surprised!

The Diabolic

Let me just first say that S. J. Kincaid has made a fan out of me! I didn’t think for a minute that I would enjoy this book. Once I started it though, I could literally not put it down. The main character Nemesis is the reason I couldn’t stop reading. The story center’s around her because she is a diabolic, she was created to protect a galactic Senator’s daughter, Sidonia. As a diabolic, Nemesis’ main purpose is to bond with her master and to protect her at all cost. Nemesis exhibits a loyalty to Sidonia that helps to give this book a meaningful journey in the story. It is their relationship that the reader comes to cheer on and to see Nemesis succeed in her mission. The story moves forward with the main plot of the young ladies switching places but political intrigue, romance, and evil counterparts stand in Nemesis' way of saving Sidonia. I could not wait to finish it and once I did it made me wish I still had more to read.

One Great Series Ending and Another Just Beginning!

The final book of the Snow Like Ashes trilogy has been released, Frost Like Night. It brings everthing and leaves nothing to question in the final book of this trilogy. It has been an exciting and sometimes unexpected journey. If you have not read this trilogy it is a must read! If you have and you are at the journey's end with me, I might have found a great new series for you to replace it with! A new release this month, A Shadow Bright and Burning, brings a new heroine, Henrietta Howl, who can burst into flames. She is the first female sorcerer in ages and has been prophesized to defeat the ancients. This series has elements from several great series like Cassandra Clare, Robin LaFevers, and J.K. Rowling.
