Invincible: The Chronicles of Nick

by Sherrilyn Kenyon

St. Martin's Press | March 22, 2011 | Hardcover

Invincible: The Chronicles of Nick is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.

Nick Gautier's day just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, he survived the zombie attacks, only to wake up and find himself enslaved to a world of shapeshifters and demons out to claim his soul.


His new principal thinks he's even more of a hoodlum than the last one, his coach is trying to recruit him to things he can't even mention and the girl he's not seeing, but is, has secrets that terrify him.



But more than that, he's being groomed by the darkest of powers and if he doesn't learn how to raise the dead by the end of the week, he will become one of them...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missed the mark I definitely liked the first book, Infinity. I read it last year and was really intrigued by where the author was taking his abilities. I thought the New Orleans setting was amazing, and there was a good blend of contemporary elements and the supernatural. However, Invincible missed the mark for me. It felt like a filler episode for a CW show. Random characters are introduced that have no bearing on the story, Nick bad mouths people, some more mysteries are thrown in, and the bad guy is defeated, but it was extremely underwhelming. In the first book Nick’s banter with the random characters was endearing, if a little bit over the top, but in Invincible it took “taking off on a tangent” to a whole other level. There are literally pages of dialogue that do not make sense to me. It’s fine for the first couple of chapters, but when conflict and problems are supposed to arise, the character needs to focus up a little bit to keep me, the reader, focussed on the plot, or else the story line becomes one big ramble (which it kind of did). Don’t get me wrong, I love filler episodes as much as the next person, but they’re usually only 45 minutes long. It takes a lot longer than that to read a book, and if I don’t have the time and energy to devote myself to a book like this, then it definitely has to be worth it or else I won’t finish it. Invincible was funny, entertaining, but in very short amounts. It was a fairly quick read, and even at the end of reading and reviewing this I’m still invested in the series, but this book slowed the momentum it had gained in the first installment. I’m hoping the third book steps it up in terms of characterization and storyline and is a little more focussed when it comes to dialogue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Book Two was even better! Ok, first I love this authour! I have met her, have all of her books that are still available, and can't wait to get her new books. That aside, this is the second book in her Chronicles of Nick series, and it was just as good, if not better than the first! The book is the story of Nick Gautier, a major minor character in her adult books. It provides major back story, and I don't want to give too much away, but if you read her adult books, her junior fiction is just as enthralling, just lacking the sex scenes. I actually share these books with my Girl Guides, so I recommend for you too! Karen
