Giveaway - The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid ARC Box (Canada Only)

Hello, Cupcakes!

Hope you're all having a fantastic week!

Today I have a very special surprise for my Canadian blog readers - a giveaway!

Thanks to the generosity of Simon & Schuster Canada, I'll be giving away a fabulous exclusive ARC box for one of my most anticipated book releases this year - The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid.

The Diabolic
by S.J. Kincaid
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Release Date:November 1st, 2016
A Diabolic is ruthless. A Diabolic is powerful. A Diabolic has a single task: Kill in order to protect the person you’ve been created for.

Nemesis is a Diabolic, a humanoid teenager created to protect a galactic senator’s daughter, Sidonia. The two have grown up side by side, but are in no way sisters. Nemesis is expected to give her life for Sidonia, and she would do so gladly. She would also take as many lives as necessary to keep Sidonia safe.

When the power-mad Emperor learns Sidonia’s father is participating in a rebellion, he summons Sidonia to the Galactic court. She is to serve as a hostage. Now, there is only one way for Nemesis to protect Sidonia. She must become her. Nemesis travels to the court disguised as Sidonia—a killing machine masquerading in a world of corrupt politicians and two-faced senators’ children. It’s a nest of vipers with threats on every side, but Nemesis must keep her true abilities a secret or risk everything.

As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns there is something more to her than just deadly force. She finds a humanity truer than what she encounters from most humans. Amidst all the danger, action, and intrigue, her humanity just might be the thing that saves her life—and the empire.

  28. So hard to choose. Well for film/tv I would have to go with Star Trek & all its films, series, and spin-offs (can't wait for the tv new series). But if I have to choose novel, it would have to be all the Dune books.
