Nick Gautier's day just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, he survived the zombie attacks, only to wake up and find himself enslaved to a world of shapeshifters and demons out to claim his soul.

His new principal thinks he's even more of a hoodlum than the last one, his coach is trying to recruit him to things he can't even mention and the girl he's not seeing, but is, has secrets that terrify him.

But more than that, he's being groomed by the darkest of powers and if he doesn't learn how to raise the dead by the end of the week, he will become one of them...

The sense of humor of the main character made this book really fun and entertaining

The second installment of the first in the ‘Chronicles of Nick’ series. Once again Sherrilyn Kenyon outdoes herself with another humors and informing story. However, this story while still for teens takes a much darker turn much like many of Sherrilyn Kenyon other stories. But, the main character still pushes through this and does things right, all the while learning more about himself and those around him. And even though everything seems to be going down hill, the characters still manage to pull through becoming stronger for their hardships. Overall, it's a great sequel to the first and a fun book for almost anyone.

I'm currently reading the main series, but when I want something much more lighthearted, in contrast to Acheron and Styxx, I read this side series. As a teen I think this series is very funny and humorous, and the fact that Nick, much like a lot of characters in the main series are otakus. I highly recommend this series for teens and younger Dark Hunter series readers. Too bad I already know what's going to happen at the end of the Chronicles of Nick.

Great book for teen boys. My son (and I) loved it. Read the whole series :)

I love the characters of Bubba and Mark. LOVE THEM!! This book was great, but did not move at the same pace as the first book. Many of the previous characters took a back seat and we were introduced to some new characters and while I liked Grim, I like reading about the dark hunters more. Caleb is very interesting as was the necromancer, but I felt that I did not get to know the necromancer times I felt things were a bit too vague. Not as much of a fan of this book as I was the first and the third (I accidentally read them out of order.)

A fantastic second installment, I was hooked again just a couple of chapters in. Have to say, I love Bubba's shop slogan/commercials (see quotes). I'm officially addicted to Nick.

Good book. I really like this series.

Kenyon approached this book with a sense of humor that I loved. She really captures an innocence, curiosity, and attitude with Nick that make you want him to succeed. I love how much is love for his mother really comes across in the books too. Some new characters like Grim, Pain, and Suffering are brought in for Nick to deal with. There isn't a dull moment in the life of Nick and by the end we'll all be rooting for the underdog.

Just as goodas the first. I haven't read the Dark Hunter series yet and while reading InVincible, i can clearly see how many connections to that series there is. I loved Nick sarcasim and his talk back in his head, it makes him real. I think i need to start the Dark Hunter seris just to get a better handle on this amazing world Sherrilyn Kenyon has created. Some things although she has elaborated on, i still felt confused likei should know what's what. Looking forward to the next book in CON!!!

...Triple B - the only computer and gun store in the world - at least that Nick knew about. And that said it all about Bubba, whose logo was him standing over a shot, smoking computer with a gun slung over his shoulder.

Ash turned back to Nick "do me a favor" " don't lick your seat blet?" Nick asked

Nov 24, 2011

The fate of the world is at stake, and the deciding factor between good and evil rest upon the shoulders of a teenager. The pressure is on for Nick to start mastering his powers, because there's a bounty on his head, and no shortage of demons trying to collect. His love life has gone from not to hot, trying to decide between the girl he's pined for in the past and the one who saw him when no one else did. Nick can't seem to catch a break with a new principal who's even worst than the last one.Nick can't even win when the new football coach wants him back on the team, since he also has even more devious extra curricular activities to add to Nick's roster. In Nick's world everyone's a player and surrounding yourself with the right people is the key to being a pawn or a king, and by the end someone close to him will be on evil's payroll. His soul is constantly teetering in the balance, as we watch on pins and needles whether the choices he makes now will sway the future.
