Illusion (Chronicles of Nick #5) By Sherrilyn Kenyon

Rating 4.5 out of 5 stars

This is book 5 in the Young Adult series by Sherrilyn Kenyon focusing on a well loved (especially by me) character from artworks-000074210454-qmgxad-originalher adult series Nicholas “Nick” Ambrosius Gautier (pronounced Go-shay). Nick has always wanted to be normal kid and avoid his demon biological side that’s fated to end the world, and in this book he gets to see the flip side of what his normal world would look like. Of course normal isn’t always what it seems cue all other characters from the adult Dark-Hunters Series and twist them into polar opposites. This makes for a heck of an adventure and many laugh out loud moments from a typical sarcastic witty male teenager that is written to perfection. Great addition to the series so far!

If you haven’t read the previous books, I’m not sure how you could love this book, the way die-hard fans such as myself would. So many characters so many twists and turns and fun throughout the series. I really get tickled with this YA series and enjoy the paranormal series that author has weaved so perfectly that we get a second sight of seeing Nick grow up and possibly change plots in future DH books.

GoodReads Review

Rumor has it, movie and TV deals are in the making for this series… I pray they (movie and TV Gods) get this right, it’s too good to not pay it the right attention. None the less, I would highly recommend you enjoy the books prior to the visual entertainment, the mental entertainment is top-notch if you enjoy a good paranormal.

Infamous-ly fantastic!

There is a lot of buzz about the Hunger Games, I did not board that train, because I didn’t get hooked within the first few chapters so, I gave up.  Maybe I’ll give it a go later, but my excitement is all about Nick, Nick Gautier (pronounced Go-Shay).

Infamous is the title of the 3rd book in the ‘Chronicle’s of Nick’ series written by the talented, Sherrilyn Kenyon.  I received this via my Kindle on March 13th and had it read by March 16th – yep it’s that good, a bit darker but still a great ride!  This is a young adult spin off of one of my favorite characters in the adult paranormal romance series ‘The Dark Hunters’ by the same author.  I have to admit I just want to know what is going to happen with this character and how this will be weaved into ‘The Dark Hunters’ series.  If you haven’t given it a try, you should or at least your teens should… what an adventure and what fun!

About the book:

Now Nick’s saga continues in the next eagerly anticipated volume…

Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him.

He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive such a difficulty? But that isn’t the primary skill he has to master. Survival is.

And in order to survive, his next lesson makes all the others pale in comparison. He is on the brink of becoming either the greatest hero mankind has ever known.
