Tyrus has ascended to the throne with Nemesis by his side and now they can find a new way forward --- one where creatures like Nemesis will be given worth and recognition, where science and information can be shared with everyone. The ruling class, the Grandiloquy, has held control over planets and systems for centuries --- and they are plotting to stop this teenage Emperor and Nemesis. Nemesis will protect Tyrus at any cost, but she cannot protect him by being the killing machine she once was. But if proving her humanity means that she and Tyrus must do inhuman things, is the fight worth the cost of winning it?

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.
