  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 August #1
    In a future world, genetic engineering has advanced to the point that both humans and animals can be modified for specific tasks, and Nemesis is a diabolic, a superhuman built to bond to and protect a single person. When the tyrannical emperor demands that Nemesis' mistress, Sidonia, come to court as a political pawn, Nemesis pretends to be Sidonia and eventually ends up engaged to the emperor's heir. But, more important, she's feeling and thinking things that are supposedly impossible for diabolics: Can she truly be in love? This is a romance novel masquerading (successfully) as a sci-fi adventure, all while exploring what it is to question society's definition of what you are and who you should be. Getting past the author's tendency to lean a bit too hard on the obvious, the first-person narration makes the story immediate, and the political plotline could yield some thought-provoking discussion about technology and religion. It would be interesting to pair this with the movie Jupiter Ascending, for the setting and feisty heroine.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: There's lots of buzz surrounding Kincaid's new series launch, and heavy publisher promotion will further drive demand.
