Fandom Cosplay Geekdom - Don't Cosplay with my Heart

GREAT read indeed! The sideline story of Team Tomorrow pulls this story together.  Our hero, Edan/Gargantua is one powerful young lady! Her family is flailing, her BFF is away, her boyfriend is questionable, her story is real.  Castellucci is spot on with the cosplay scene and it comes across in this page turner of a story, as is stated: "all is fair in love and fandom."  Find an afternoon, you will sail through this book in no time, I did!

The Empress.jfif

S. J. Kincaid has a page-turner with The Empress. The second book in the Diabolic trilogy, The Empress, packs a punch and leaves the reader blown away at the end. Nemesis is a diabolic, a humaniod teenager and an extremely dangerous weapon sworn to protect Sidonia, a human princess. The Diabolic is the first in this action packed series, featuring Nemesis, who's a purposely built superhuman created to protect a single individual at all cost. Nemesis has spent her entire existence protecting and loving Sidonia, yet in an instant, she is without Sidonia. Nemesis is now learning to live without her all while Tyrus has placed her in the crossfire as the Empress apparent with his marriage proposal. Nemesis will have her loyalty tested and find that those she has grown to love and trust will betray her. Kincaid has created a novel full of plot twists. The Empress has the same characters, but the feel is darker, sharper, and more unempathic than the first novel in the series.
