The heat is on, and a new threat to humanity has risen…

Nick has his driver’s license and he’s not afraid to use it. But turning sixteen isn’t what he thought it would be. While other boys his age are worried about prom dates and applying for college, Nick is neck deep in enemies out to stop him from living another day. No longer sure if he can trust anyone, his only ally seems to be the one person he’s been told will ultimately kill him.

But life spent serving the undead is anything except ordinary. And those out to get him have summoned an ancient force so powerful even the gods fear it. As Nick learns to command and control the elements, the one he must master in order to combat his latest foe is the one most likely to destroy him. As the old proverb goes, fire knows nothing of mercy, and if Nick is to survive this latest round, he will have to sacrifice a part of himself. However, the best sacrifice is seldom the sanest move. Sometimes it’s the one that leaves your enemies confused, and you even more so.

And sometimes, you have to trust your enemy to save your friends. But what do you do when that enemy is you?

I have been following The Chronicles Of Nick series for years now. Every year, I anxiously await the next book which I can never seem to get enough of.

Plot: Back in Nick’s shoes, things are stirring up pretty up quickly. Drama with Nick fighting his dark side, with girls, and of course drama with friends. I really enjoyed the progression of the story. With each chapter Nick is learning more about himself and the destiny that sits on his shoulders. The struggle between good and evil, makes the reader anticipate Nick’s every move.

Love: At first, I re-guarded it as childish love. But man oh man, did it turn a different way.  I won’t say much but know that there is much more that what the reader thinks. I’m hoping they can reconcile but with teens and emotions, you never know what will happen.

Family: I adore Nick’s mom. She totally reminds me on myself cause I am very protective of my son and kiss him every chance I get. No matter how big my baby boy gets, he will always be MY baby boy. Nick’s mom learns that he is growing up and does her best to let go and let him make choices. I totally admired her ability to know her child well and of course be there for him, no matter what.

Inferno definitely heats up every single moment. With the future racing toward Nick fast, Nick must over come his fears. He learns hard lessons and learns who his real friends are. Keeping the action fierce and characters well written, Inferno is awesome!

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    I need to read this series Savy! I’m a huge fan of her Dark-Hunter series, so I don’t know why I haven’t gotten to Nick’s books yet. So glad even at book 4 the series is still going strong, that’s always something that excites me. It’s so frustrating when book 1 is the best and everything else just goes downhill. Clearly not the case here though!

    I’m so glad you love this series! I have the first book but haven’t read it yet. I might even have the 2nd, I should check. Sounds like one I should get started on ASAP!

    I haven’t read any of this series, but it sounds really good. I am glad that you are really enjoying it.

  5. I have only read the first book and SO NEED to catch up. Oh you are making me push the rest of these up the wishlist!

  6. This is a new series for me. Sounds pretty good, though, especially if you give it 5 bites!
