I can understand why some people may come to dislike this book since it is so vastly different than the first book. It has so many twists that are different to the first book. It is exceptionally good except in a different way than the first one was. This one was filled with twists that you did not expect and the ending was a twist you did not expect. To me, it was what I needed. It wasn't predictable and it clearly showed that not all books are a perfect love story and not everything goes as planned. It gets you with emotional attachments you may have had in the first book with some of the characters. And it may make you sad to see what has become of them under these circumstances. But I personally enjoyed the book, in a different way than I had enjoyed the first.
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
