Ahhh... mini vacations oh how I love the! Hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July and you're taking today to recuperate from your festivities. Speaking of recuperating, that's what I have to do right after a new release from Sherrilyn Kenyon. I just sit and read non stop. I forget to eat and my house becomes a disaster zone because my kids are left to fend for themselves.
Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon
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 sixteen 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 you even more so.
And sometimes, you have to trust your enemy to save your friends. But what do you do when that enemy is you?
Not sure what it is about Sherrilyn Kenyon's books that make it impossible for me to put them down but who cares! Keep them coming! Each book gives you a peek into how much power Nick is destined to have and little by little he's learning how to deal with them. As always I feel so bad for Nick. He's a teen age boy trying to deal with the regular high school crap and deal with all the "things" trying to kill him plus there's that little Malachai issue. It's hard for Nick to find people he can trust so when he finds out the one he loves was sent to kill him he is devastated. Which opens the door for new people that want to be in his life. But are they friend or foe and how do you tell? As always I love seeing other character from the Dark Hunter series making an appearance and as you know I spent a stupid amount of time trying to pieces the two series together. If you've read the Dark Hunter series you have to read this one too. It's a must!
I give this book 5 chocolate dipped strawberries and a shout out to Miss Simi for the burn on Casey at the mall...."I thought men traded up not down."
