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 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 ›

This series is a blast! Sherrilyn Kenyon continues to reinvent the character of Nick Gautier (made famous in her adult paranormal romance series, Dark-Hunter) by turning back the clock to when he was a teenager and allowing him (and those around him) to make different decisions that then ripple out and change his future/history in several key ways. It's brilliant really because this approach allows both old and new readers to fully embrace the Chronicles of Nick series as a completely separate, yet complimentary, entity.

Nick is once again the same completely self-deprecating character that charmed me in INFINITY. He's got more friends this time and he's beginning to scratch the surface of his formidable powers, but he still deals with bullies, his smothering mother, and girl troubles (why is the most popular girl in school suddenly into him?). He also has several new problems to juggle including magic tutoring from Death, a new football coach who literally wants to kill him, and hoards of demons who are trying to collect on the newly placed bounty on his head. Never a dull moment for Nick.

Not quite as good as INFINITY, but still excellent in it's own right, INVINCIBLE is a great read for any age and any sex. While you don't need to have read the Dark-Hunter series to enjoy this book (and those are definitely not YA), you probably do need to read INFINITY first since INVICIBLE picks up immediately after the events from that book and Kenyon doesn't waste time rehashing what's already happened. No word yet on the title or release date for the next book in the Chronicles of Nick book, which frankly borders on cruel given the awesome/horrible way INVINCIBLE ended. Whatever it's called, wherever it comes out, I'll be reading it.
