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. In order to thwart the power-mad Emperor’s plan to hold Sidonia hostage for her father’s rebellion ties, Nemesis travels to the court disguised as Sidonia--a killing machine masquerading in a corrupt world. It's a nest of vipers with threats on every side, but Nemesis must keep her true abilities a secret or risk everything.
