She's chronically restless and has lived in California, Alabama, New Hampshire, Oregon, Illinois, and Scotland with no signs of staying in one place anytime soon. Find out more at SJKincaid.com.
"The intrigue- and betrayal-packed plot never feels like twists for
the sake of twists because character decisions are rooted in their
complex, often contradictory, emotions. Nuanced social commentary
and philosophical musings give thematic weight to a story grounded
in a passionate, tragically antagonistic relationship...intense
and captivating; a pitch-perfect ending for a strong trilogy."
- Kirkus Reviews
"The riveting conclusion to "The Diabolic" trilogy is action-packed and full of twists and turns. Kincaid continues to build a world blending the political intrigue of ancient Roman history with futuristic space, science, and technology. The characters are well developed, and even the most villainous are engaging and sympathetic...an excellent conclusion to The Diabolic series." - School Library Journal
