Today, I want to talk about The Diabolic series by S.J. Kincaid. I just finished the third and final book in the series, The Nemesis and holy Toledo this conclusion was amazing!

I put the book aside for about a month and again the same problem happened. I decided recently to give it one last try and thank goodness I did because I ended up really enjoying the book.Read More
