The world has fallen in love with Nick Gautier and the Dark-Hunters. Now Nick’s saga continues in the next eagerly anticipated volume....
Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him. He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so dang hard? But that isn’t the primary skill he has to master. Survival is. And in order to survive, his next lesson makes all the others pale in comparison.
He is on the brink of becoming either the greatest hero mankind has ever known, or he’ll be the one who ends the world. With enemies new and old gathering forces, he will have to call on every part of himself to fight - or he’ll lose everyone he cares about. Even himself.

Interesting, Entertaining, Engaging
Nick, of course. He is such a wonderful character, his dual nature makes him incredibly interesting and his choices and decisions show that he is trying so hard to continually do the rigth thing regardless of what everyone keeps telling him. He is determined not to let others dictate his future.
Holter Graham has definately embodied the character of Nick. He reads as if the story is, indeed, his and the emotional depth he brings to the character is one of the best things about listening to the book.
I think Nick's regard for his mom is heartfelt. Though I do not think they really understand each other and the constant whining and badgering of his mom makes me realize even more how much Nick cares for her that he just stands and takes all she dishes out.
Very enjoyable series. I am looking forward to hearing more from Nick and finding out if he is "master of his own fate".
When Bubba's momma came to town. Got a bit more backstory about both Bubba and Mark.
Bubba dressed in a suit and clean cut...to take his Momma to church so she could thank God for not letting her plane crash.
Nick Gautier can't get a break.
I like this series immensely. But it seems as though Sherilyn has too many irons in the fire. This book, along with several of her other recent releases, seem a bit predictable. It's a shame that publishers will push popular authors to crank out as many books as possible so that they can make a profit. Literature would be much more colorful if they were'nt so eager to make a buck.
I highly recommend this series to all who love the fantasy genre from the Iron Druid to anything in the Dresden files arena. It is written for a younger audience but I have found that each book has developed in a relatively sophisticated and entertaining manner. It seems critical to read the books in sequence as they do become more complex, but the ultimate plot is still a simple good vs. bad with healthy doses of light humor, and young adult relationships. I am, by anyone's definition, an old adult but have found Nicks adventures interesting and the deeper plot lines involving the supernatural and fantastic quite smart. The narrator is terrific with both pace and voicing's.
The Chronicles of Nick keeps getting better. In this book, Kenyon continues to give more depth to her characters and they really seem to be actual people they all have that much history and depth to them.
At the same time Nick is growing into his demon powers very fast. The question is can he control them or will they control him?
Can't wait for the next book to come out.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I just love Nick, he is such a dichotomy of a person. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon books she brings both humor and grief into the stories with perfect blend. This book is more for young adults, but when she brings these stories and the dark hunter stories together, I believe they will be more adult themed. Of course, you can’t miss them if you read the dark hunter series. Holter Graham is a great reader.
Yes and I allready have to many of people. I have even gotten my kids listening to them now and all of their friends.
Yes I have and he is the best at what he does. No one can compare to Holter. So glad to have him back instead of Fred for Sherry's books.
I know they are making movies out of these books and I hope they name them just the way the book is and dont leave out any of the important stuff like when they made the Twilight series.
Nick's way of handling the dude who harassed Wren in the bar...
Well, Nick was my favorite character because the whole series revolves around his struggle to maintain equilibrium between being a human being and a super power. That he has no real training on how to handle deadly power with conscience and heart.
Soul. No kidding, Holter brings life to the words and makes the story really suspend reality for the listener. His range of voice and tone fits this goth series to a "T".
There are always hugely funny moments in Kenyon's books and the Chronicles of Nick are no exception so yes, I laughed out loud in places.
If you're a Chronicles of Nick fan already, what can I say? More great story here and listening to it read by Holter is a treat worthy of a Broadway performance. If you haven't begun the Chronicles of Nick audio series, I so suggest that you begin now...
Always looking for a great Fantasy Series... Please do make suggestions...
I have listened to every SK CON, Dream Hunter, Dark Hunter and Werehunter audio book that SK has. I can not wait for the next installment.
If you are not a Sherrilyn Kenyon listener yet this is a great story line to jump start you off. Start with the CON series and then jump into the Dark Hunter Series for the back ground of all the characters. You will get sucked into the NOLA life style and familiar surrounding if you have ever visited New Orleans, LA. You will cheer on Nick and Freinds and get a better understanding of who to expect when you listen to the other Series for back storeies.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
Am enjoying this series more and more with each book i read. I would rate this book higher than the first 2 just for the main reason of things getting much clearer for Nick and actually for us too.I like how many times I laugh while reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's work and this book was no different, many funny things happened here specially what Babba.
You get to see how powerful Nick is and to what point he can reach to help those who he love.
Will get the 4th book soon to read it before the 5th one is released.
Looking forward to know how Nick's future will be like.
as I go through each one of these books you start to realize the possiblites of these story's ending. I become disappointed each time one book ends because I want to hear more of the story. I'm looking forward to the next book.
