The Chronicles of Nick - Book 8

By Sherrilyn Kenyon

Nemesis Publications - September 2017

The Chronicles of Nick begins with Nick at the age of 14, and shows his introduction to the world of the Dark Hunters. It completely stands on its own as a young adult series. However, as a reader, if you are reading the Dark Hunter series, there are spoilers in this book that are revealed at a later age of Nick. As such, you might consider reading the Dark Hunter series through at least Acheron before reading Book 1, Infinity. If you choose to read all of the books in this world in chronological order, which includes Dark Hunter, Dream Hunter and Chronicles of Nick, then read through Bad Moon Rising before Infinity, then read through No Mercy before Invincible. Then read through The Guardian before Infamous, Time Untime before Inferno, Styxx before Illusion, Son of No One before Instinct, Dragonbane before Invision, then Dragonmark, Deadmen Walking, and Dragonsworn before Intensity.

It has all slowly been culminating to this one time. This one event. The decisions Nick Gautier made would either save the world, or end it. He was the Malachai, that wouldn't change. But he was unique in that long line of malevolence. He had friends. He had a loving mother.

He also had a son, Cyprian, from the future out to kill him. A hateful son was not unusual, simply repetition of history of all Malachai. Nick was trying to create his own future, a peaceful future others were striving to prevent. His enemies were legion, and his friends might question his ability to thwart the future, but Nick is a fighter unwilling to let fate win.

Intensity is an apt name for this non-stop adventure. Nick and his friends face danger at every turn, but even more insidious is the knowledge that he has a son from the future who hates him and is on a mission to kill him. Nick is still learning astonishing truths about himself, but perhaps the most shocking is the end. After all, the Chronicles of Nick series has finished and now the Shadows of Fire series is about to begin.
