Editorial Reviews


“I absolutely could not stop listening to this story. The sarcasm that Nick exhibits is brilliantly displayed. The situations Nick finds himself in leave you laughing out loud as you listen to [Holter Graham] tell the story. He is the perfect narrator for this series, and I am already anxiously waiting for any future novels.” – Teens Read Too

“Narrator Holter Graham embraces Nick Gauthier in Invincible…Graham reveals the real Nick, that teen mix of awkwardness, angst and smart-aleck camouflaging an underlying river of deep feeling…This is truly a YA book but adult readers will flock to it because of the Dark Hunter connection” – Sound Commentary

“Graham switches accents, tone, and pitch to bring to life Nick’s mother, a new love interest, and the many new demons that invade his life.” – School Library Journal

More About the Author

The #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, who is proud of her mixed Cherokee heritage, lives a life of extraordinary danger... as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she's found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than thirty million copies of her books in print, in over one hundred countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with too.

Her books appear regularly at the coveted #1 bestselling spot. This extraordinary bestseller continues to top every genre she writes. Her current series include: The Dark-Hunters, The League, Chronicles of Nick and Beladors. Since 2004, she has placed more than 80 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga.

Her Lords of Avalon novels have been adapted by Marvel and her Dark-Hunter novels are now a New York Times bestselling manga published by St. Martins, and her Chronicles of Nick series is adapted by Yen Press. Her Dark-Hunters and Chronicles of Nick series are both soon to be major motion picture releases.

The fate of the world is at stake, and the deciding factor between good and evil rest upon the shoulders of a teenager. Sherrilyn Kenyon's foray into the popular YA genre hits it's stride with the sophomoric release of The Chronicles of Nick series, Invincible. This second effort is definitely better than the first. We pick up where the last book left off, right after Nick and his friends defeat the zombies, and the mortents. Oh, and then there's Kyrian's flashing some fang. But who and what his so called friends and allies are, are not the only obstacles Nick will be facing. 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. Gautier can't even put a W in the win column 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.

I found the writing as witty as some of the characters. Kenyon approached this book with a sense of humor and satire that I think really fits her leading man. She really captures an innocence, curiosity, and attitude with Nick that make you want him to succeed.

The book is definitely better than the first in the series. However, if you are like me and have followed the series from the beginning, this just falls flat. I'm tired of buying books from Kenyon that don't move us into a different direction. I've been waiting for years for another "Acheron" to move us into a new direction-instead of creating new characters and new problems.

I want to know more about adult Nick, Simi, Acheron, Kyrian, Amanda, Tabby, etc.

This ends in a cliff hanger. I wish I would have known that before reading. I would have waited to read it.

If you read the first and loved it, then you will probably enjoy the book. If you were like me and frustrated with the lack of progression, the book will irritate you like it did me.

I wanted to like this book. I read the first in this YA series that takes an alternate universe perspective on Nick Gautier the character Kenyon has been teasing us as the nemesis to Acheron for several books. I'm fully on board with this branching off into the YA genre. I've found you can often get an even more satisfying story when the author has to stretch themselves and not use hot sex or coarse language to add an edgy/exciting element. (Don't get me wrong I like steamy sex and an f- Bomb or two, but I also appreciate more youth friendly writing as well). So, I was prepared to love this series. I really like the idea of an alternate universe / timeline because the device allows Kenyon to split this story from her adult dark hunter universe without compromising the world vew she has developed there. It gives us new and interesting stories about beloved characters back when they were younger and often sillier. This is what this book should have done. It didn't. I gave the first book a pass because I love the author and these characters, and figured she needed a beginner book to set up the YA shift and the premise behind how this series is separating from what has gone on before in the adult dark hunter series. The problem isn't with her plot devices, although admittedly this is flimsy stuff and pushes even my suspension of disbelief to it's limits. It's with her writing itself. Lately the quality of her adult dark hunter series has been deteriorating. The snarky voices of her characters witty banter has become one dimensional and almost indecipherable from her other characters. No where is this more apparent than in any stories involving, even peripherally, the bear quads.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover
The second installment in CON is yet another adventurous entry. The book picks up immediately after the first and follows Nick as he learns to control his ever-growing demonic powers all the while navigating high school and puberty.

The Good:

This book is quick and easy to read. The action is always on, and of course, we see more of our favorite old characters including Simi and Acheron. Nick's internal dialogue is hilarious and witty, and it is always funny to see what will come out of his mouth.

The Bad:

The plus side is also the down side. This book is very short. It seems much shorter than the first and because of that, it left me somewhat unsatisfied when I reached the end. The plot is also not as centralized and episodic as the first. That may make it harder to recall some of the plot points in the future.


The second CON continues the promising start of the series, and I look forward to more entries.
