Nick must save a race of Merfolk, but a few things stand in his way. First, Merfolk live on the Moon. Second, they're tens of thousands of years in the past. Third, his parents grounded him for blowing up the shed, again.
Join Nikolas and his motley crew of friends as they time travel from an apocalyptic Earth to a fantastic moon thousands of years in the past. Nikolas will hear the call of a mysterious woman, battle evil drones, fly malfunctioning hover trucks, run from other-worldly monsters, witness the blue and yellow fire of blood-thirsty water dragons, and travel through space and time, as he seeks to save the Merfolk of the Eynclaene coast.
This middle-grade fantasy adventure is perfect for readers between the ages of 9 and 16.
Nikolas and Company is a middle-grade fantasy adventure, wrapped in the magic of Harry Potter, inside an episode of Doctor Who...covered in a heap of Goonies. (What the marketing department is trying to say is its awesome.)
What kids and adults are saying about the Nikolas and Co series!
Pure awesome in a cup. With some waffles. Which would make it a waffle load. - Austin 14
My boys 11 and 14 both really enjoyed the story and only complained that book 2 wasn't out yet so they couldn't keep reading. - Fred Chambers
I have to admit, before I could snuggle up under my blankies with this fantastical book, my son beat me to it. He read it in a single day and raved. - Elizabeth Mueller
Review from my 13-year old daughter:
"This was an imaginative, well-written novel similar to the Hitchhiker's Guide books and was a pleasure to read. The author did a good job and hopefully has more in store." Sara Grace
"Enticing and Amazing"... These are the opening reviews my 11 year old son. As a constant video/computer gamer, it is phenomenal to see him immersed in these books. He loves this series so much that he's been sharing his books with other boys in his class and asked the school librarian to carry it. Highly recommended by this family! - Gemmavive
Nikolas and company is the best book I've ever read. It was full of surprises that kept me on the edge, it also full of awkward moments that made me laugh. - J-Man
Kevin has created a fun, unique fantasy world full of magic and adventure. The story gets off to a fast start and sucks you in. - Micah Lewis
great YA fantasy, funny, a very unique premise, very well written, great descriptions, and a great band of heroes. - Julie Johnson
once I immersed myself in the stories characters and settings I couldn't put it down. Pam Torres
It's great for anyone that loves fantasy, science fiction, it's clean with just the slightest hint of boys and girls taking a notice of each other.
I was thoroughly tickled to visit Kevin's fantasy world. His writing style is awesome too. He pulled me in and never let me go until I sadly finished the story. - Robyn Campbell

Nothing is what it seems. Merpeople riding carriages and waltzing about on land with automaton legs, cities crying out to their stewards of impending dangers while a dangerous virus hits the countryside where the ill are sent to places for organ harvesting. This is the world where 14 year-old Nick lives and all he wants to do is go back to the moon.
I have to admit, before I could snuggle up under my blankies with this fantastical book, my son beat me to it. He read it in a single day and raved. I had to see what was up.
Kevin McGill has a refreshingly fresh perspective in world-building and I enjoyed the depths he took his character development as well. I enjoyed the jaunty dialogue the characters shared as well as the dark villains that had hunted poor Nick.
I have just got to say that I love this book! It was a great beginning, at first I was confused but as soon as the chips began falling into place I was all in.
The twists and turns that I see coming up in the other episodes just make me so happy. And there is ALWAYS something going on, never a dull moment. No one likes an adventure book where we spend the majority of it just waiting. We need conflict and surprises and Kevin seems like he's willing to supply both, and lots of them too.
This episode ended at such a great place and I just can't wait to get my hands on the next one! :)
Kevin Mcgill has created a a plausible alternate earth with fascinating characters that kept me on the edge of my seat. This first episode of his serial is definitely a page turner and highly recommended.
So what can I say, I loved the tale of Nicolas and his band of friends in the full version and I live it in the epesodic as well. This is a great read for a young reader who is looking to escape into a fantasy world that isn't that far from home.
Got this book for my 13 year old son, and he loved it. I decided to read it and couldn't put it down. Got the second book so my son and I could read together. I love discussing all of the strange things that happen in Huron with my son and trying to figure out what would happen next.
