The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

4 Stars!

This book was unexpected and unique. I thought I knew where this book was going based on the blurb, but I found myself in a completely different area wrestling with the question of what “being human” means.

I don’t enjoy cruelty at all and it will easily turn me off. I found it a bit more acceptable in this case because cruelty is pretty much the basis of the story. But Reader beware there is both animal and people cruelty in this book.

The problems I had with the story line, can’t be discussed because MAJOR SPOILERS! I didn’t really enjoy the ending, but not necessarily because of what happened. It was more about how it played out and how long it took. This book could have easily been expanded into 2 or 3 books. It is a rich world with lots of room for exploration. I found The Diabolic to be very compact for a 400 page book.

Disappointments aside, I really enjoyed this book. I found it to be a real page turner and it had some complete twists that I never saw coming. If there was a sequel, I would definitely read it.
