Audie Award Finalist, Paranormal, 2013
The heat is on, and a new threat to humanity has risen....
Nick has his driver's license and he's not afraid to use it. But turning 16 isn't what he thought it would be. While other boys his age are worried about prom dates and applying for college, Nick is neck deep in enemies out to stop him from living another day. No longer sure if he can trust anyone, his only ally seems to be the one person he's been told will ultimately kill him. But life spent serving the undead is anything except ordinary. And those out to get him have summoned an ancient force so powerful even the gods fear it.
As Nick learns to command and control the elements, the one he must master in order to combat his latest foe is the one most likely to destroy him. As the old proverb goes, fire knows nothing of mercy, and if Nick is to survive this latest round, he will have to sacrifice a part of himself. However, the best sacrifice is seldom the sanest move. Sometimes it's the one that leaves your enemies confused.
And sometimes, you have to trust your enemy to save your friends. But what do you do when that enemy is you?

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This is another hit although the last 5 minutes at the ending was weird and I didn't like it. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon's stuff and Holter Graham is awesome. Sherrilyn truly has a way of writing that makes you want to be a better person. Nick is such a wonderful character, all of her characters are. Recommended to read in order after the Dark/Dream Hunter books which I love. The world Sherrilyn creates is so vivid and exciting, the stories pull me right in. There was some conflicting back stories from this book and the rest of her stories, but that does not deter from the enjoyment it gives. There were a couple of recording/editing issues with the sentence being cut off and repeat of some phrases although it wasn't bad.
First and foremost, the stories about Nick are extremely entertaining...everything from demon rage to fumbling and embarrassed, Nick takes us all (readers) to places we've been and can relate to.
Second, please don't lose Holter Graham. He brings all of the dark hunter/Nick books to true life. It's amazing to realize after hearing the book that Holter never misses a beat, or voice even when switching from Nick's mom to Nick to Ash...what a talent!
Well, Ash is my first place character because he tries to mentor Nick through very trying circumstances without giving too much away about why he knew what he was talking about. Nick is smart enough to listen and remember.
Holter Graham's interpretation and voice. He renders power, awe, and pure embarrassment so realistically you all but feel a part of the scene being read. He is the perfect choice to read these books of Kenyon's.
Nick is back...badder than ever!
The only other thing to add is "Wow". Excellent book, characters are growing and there are always fresh plots...don't know how Sherrilyn Kenyon does it but I'm sure glad she does!
everything but the ending
the ending of this book makes me almost not want to read the next book because he loses his powers and that was something i did not want to hear, since he just learned how to control them.
While I'm sure the printed version is excellent, the narration of Holter Graham adds to the story. His voices are fantastic and really bring the story to life. He does the female voices so well that I never notice that a male is voicing the parts.
This book is just a continuation of Infinity, Invincible, and Infamous. Each was better than the previous and Inferno is the best of the four. Nick is maturing but he still has problems with his powers. Being a teenager is difficult enough without the added pressure that he might one day destroy the world.
Holter Graham's performances are always flawless. He has narrated many Kenyon books and they are all wonderful.
Like many other listeners/readers, I think the epilogue is a little strange and frustrating. I'm looking forward to seeing how Sherrilyn Kenyon resolves this.
This is a YA book, but I have never felt that Kenyon writes down for her young adult audiences. This book series shows that it isn't necessary to have sex scenes to be an entertaining book. I do think this book should be read after the other three CON books. I believe it would be pretty confusing to jump into this book without first reading the other three.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
Well DUH! Holter Graham is the best narrator that ever lived!
Nick....always feeling as if he has to save the world but knows how easy it would be to say F*** it all and give in just to get a little break from all the trials.
He can bring a story to life were its like you are watching a movie rather then listening to a book.
Yes yes yes! And I did.
We get to see some old fav ppl and she introduces some new ones. There was love, betrayal, fights, and reunions! Everything you want in a book is in here.
Also had the best ending I have ever seen in a book. Sets the next book in the series up really well! I cant wait for the next book!!!
I definitely would for so many reasons - humor, sarcasm, good story line, keeps you on your toes.
He just brings the book to life with accents and his reading style. Definitely one if the best narrators on audiobooks in my opinion.
I love this series and can't wait to hear the next one, in the meanwhile I plan on getting into this authors other books.
I would rate this book in the top 10 at least, I enjoyed listening and reading this book and all the previous books in the series. The combination of the author's words and the narrator's performance was quite enjoyable. I purchased both the Kindle and Audible editions so I was able reaching and listen to the book switching back and forth as I need according to the situation. But unknown like several books I have read and listened to I either found the book more enjoyable in one format or other, but it didn't matter with this book I enjoyed no matter which way I was listened/read the book.
In this particular series I have enjoyed Simi in all her appearances. But loving the coming of age under bizzare, unusual, and stressful situations aspect of this book Nick would have to always get my MVP vote. But don't forget the reluctant protector Caleb and growing friendship with Acheron.
If you are looking for a good series to start i would recommend "the Chronicles of Nick" I hope (fingers crossed) there will be lots more of them to continue to read/listen to.
I am a truck driver who listens to books instead of music. If I don't have a book its almost impossible to drive.
I have yet to find one of her books boring.. I absolutely LOVE all her characters and they couldn't have found a better narrator than Holter Graham who makes the characters come alive.. And for this book in particular I love Nick and his cajun come backs but I still not sure if the ending means this is the last book in this series or well what..
I'm a mom of three and I'm in college, I love to read but lately have not time to sit and do that I have just discovered audible and I love it, I now have the time listen to the books I dont have the time to sit and read.
I love the Chronicles of Nick series, Sherrilyn Kenyon continues to intrigue me with Nick. This book left me wanting more. Can’t wait for the next book. I love how this adds to the Dark-Hunter series and gives you more of the back stories to some of the caricatures in the Dark-Hunter series.
Sherrilyn Kenyon is one of my favorites and Holter Graham is a must on any of her books. I can't even listen to her books when someone else is reading. I would rather read it. So the answer to the questions is ..yes.
This been is more for teens. I love her other series and her website. Chronicles of Nick does not compare to books like Acheron by Kenyon. If you think it will, you will be disappointed. For young adults however, the book is very good and so is the series. I enjoy reading them so I can have background info on the older Nick in the other series.
Holter Graham has a great voice and is made for her books. See answer above.
