Second in the young adult urban-fantasy series, Chronicles of Nick, which parallels the Dark-Hunter series.

My Take

Most of the story is of Nick discovering and trying to learn how to deal with his supernatural side while under attack from demons and the new Coach. Seems Coach made a deal some years back, and now he’s forcing Nick and other students to cater to his demands…or die.

Nick also learns more about Nekoda’s role in his life and he’s suddenly getting popular with girls…who knew super powers could be so useful!??

The Story

It’s the day after the zombies have attacked the school when Caleb revealed his role, and Nick’s mom has lost her job due to Nick’s little stunt.

If Nick only knew all we discover in Invincible, he might freak a bit more.

The Characters

Nick Gautier is in school, destined to be the Malachai. His human mom is more of an off-stage yet very present influence.

Bubba and Mark pop in at least long enough for Nick to help clean up the store from the zombie attack as well as Mark helping Nick with a little project.

The Grim Reaper pops in to “teach” Nick but his agenda doesn’t necessarily fall in line with Nick’s — there’s some ulterior purpose here. Heck, everyone is keeping an eye on Nick and wondering if he’ll keep his humanity.

Kyrian Hunter is a Dark-Hunter.

Acheron “Ash” is the head of all Dark-Hunters. In charge of their training, their morale, and saving their asses when it gets too deep. His “boss” is Artemis, the creator of all Dark-Hunters and the meanest, nastiest bitch you will ever encounter. Simi is a Charonte demon who lives on Ash as a tattoo, available when needed.

The Cover

I like the cover — a young man with his back to us and his head in profile with a huge circle of symbols on his back. Even if he isn’t wearing a Hawaiian shirt.
