#ARCstravaganza #8

#ARCstravaganza is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful Flavia over @Flavia the Bibliophile where book bloggers/bookstagrammers have a chance to show off their ARCs/eARCs/Galleys!

Hello Readers! This is my 8th week participating in #ARCstravaganza Monday & this week I’ve chosen The Empress (The Diabolic #2) by S.J. Kincaid! The Diabolic is on my TBR for October & now I can binge read them back to back since The Empress hits shelves October 31st *whoop *whoop* I’ve read such great reviews for the start of this series & can’t wait to see what the buzz is about. Also! any YA book that is said to be Science themed or have elements of Science is my the strawberry to my cheesecake so this is a MUST read for me 😉

*I’ve included the Goodreads Synopsis down below however, since this is a sequel I wouldn’t advise reading unless you’ve already read The Diabolic 😉

It’s a new day in the Empire. Tyrus has ascended to the throne with Nemesis by his side and now they can find a new way forward—one where they don’t have to hide or scheme or kill. One where creatures like Nemesis will be given worth and recognition, where science and information can be shared with everyone and not just the elite.

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 will protect Tyrus at any cost. He is the love of her life, and they are partners in this new beginning. But she cannot protect him by being the killing machine she once was. She will have to prove the humanity that she’s found inside herself to the whole Empire—or she and Tyrus may lose more than just the throne. But if proving her humanity means that she and Tyrus must do inhuman things, is the fight worth the cost of winning it?

What are some ARCS/eGalleys you’re excited to have Bookworms? Has anyone read The Diabolic? if so, please let me know down below if I’m in for a good read <3’s!

  1. I didn’t even realise the second book was soon to be released! I haven’t even started The Diabolical yet! It’s on my to-read list (it’s actually on my before the end of this year TBR list) so I’m sure I’ll get to it eventually. 🙂
    In the meantime I really hope you enjoy The Diabolic and The Empress Lilly. It sounds like a great series and I’ve seen a fair few positive reviews for the first book already. I’m sure yours will be the same! 🙂 ❤️
