CHAPTER 1 “Nick? Boo? Get up. You’re going to be late for school.”Groaning in fear of what he might find this time, Nick opened his eyes to see the navy blue curtains his mom had bought him last year when they moved into their condo on Bourbon Street. Relief flooded him.It was just a nightmare, after all. Thank you, God!That was his thought until he realized that the window wasn’t the same. Instead of being a large single window, it was two windows with a divider between them.Ah, crap. Not again. Haven’t I suffered enough indignities and horrors? Really?His heart hammering, Nick slowly swept his gaze around a room he didn’t recognize.At all.His stomach tightened to the point he feared he’d be ill.“Nick?” His mom knocked lightly before she pushed open the door to smile at him. “So you are up, sleepyhead. Hurry now, or else you’ll get another tardy.”Even more unsettled than before, Nick gaped at the sight of her in an expensive dark blue business suit with her blond hair cut short to frame her beautiful face. That definitely wasn’t her waitress uniform.“Mom?”Scowling, she moved to stand by the bed and placed her hand to his forehead. “Are you all right?

From the Publisher
Be careful what you wish for. . . You just might get it.
Nick Gautier is tired of his destiny. He doesn't want to be the son of a demon who's fated to end the world. Nor does he want to see another demon or other preternatural creature who wants to kill or enslave him. He just wants to be normal teenager and have normal problems like everyone else.
But normality isn't all it's cracked up to be. When he gets sucked into an alternate reality where his mother has married his mentor and his Atlantean god best friend has become a human geek, he begins to understand that no life is free of pain, and that every person has a specific place in the universe . . . even the son of a hated demon. Most of all, he sees that his powers aren't the curse he thought they were, and that the world needs a champion, especially a champion the world's enemies can't imagine rising up to defend the very people he should destroy.
Old enemies and new friends square off for a major battle that will either restore Nick to his real world, or end him forever
