My Thoughts.......



Wow ! Off to a great new series.Sherrilyn Kenyon continues to reinvent the character of Nick Gautier by turning back the clock to when he was a teenager(He first appeared in her Dark Hunter saga)In a engrossing tale where Nick football coach is possessed my a ruthless paranormal entity  and is blacking mailing his students into stealing things of interest for him so he can perfect the spell he needs. Focuses on Nick and has made him a puppet in his skim of things. Torn between doing what is right and wrong he needs to make a choice or he will be among the walking dead before the weeks out.Nick enlists the help of his friends to conquer this demon or what ever entity it is playing along with his game. Nick is trying to learn about his formidable powers, from Death but, he still is dealing with bullies and his smothering mother and a bunch of demons who want to exterminate him. But , he needs to do it quickly so that they can form a plan and crack this case.And engaging tale that looks promising.As nicks formidable  powers grow it will be something to watch as he will be a live formidable teenager and not a dead one.Sherrilyn is not letting you you forget about your favorite Dark hunters either they are included in this new series. Found Nick to be lots of fun ,witty, smart,humorous and a lot of fun to read about in his latest adventure. And as always Simi is one of my favorites as she graces the pages and is a hoot! Nick has has 2 people protecting him while he is learning of his magic abilities and a new girlfriend to boot who is his protector to.Will this alliance work out? We will just have to see. Great for readers both young and old.

My Thoughts....



I have to start off buy saying that this series on a whole has been excellent.Abby tale with Colin is very endearing. Abby happens to wake up one morning with a naked hunky Highlander in her bed thinking she had to much to drink last night and this is a one night stand.Even being uneasy about this situation she is thinking how lucky am I.There paths crossed as Abby being of Fae descent and not realizing she was Fae at all brought Colin forward in time as she was wishing for him all along that he is magically connected to her. And hopefully her life mate even though she wasn't looking for one per say.Colin is in the middle of a pending war when he was brought forth in time. He needs to get back to his family in order for him to help them from dying in a war he's already seen. Contacting his family that is here in this time for help. But, nothing seems to work and the only one who can help him is Abby and she thinks he is crazy for even asking as she has no powers.



Abby is traveling back in time too help Colin and return home. Things are never easy someones out to hurt Abby and Colin is torn between protecting Abby and saving his friends.They are out on a grand adventure to conquer both causes while falling in loving and creating happiness together and being torn as Abby knows she will never be able to live in the time period.Nice to visit but, she wants out of there! As always Melissa has included most case members from previous books engaging in this tale which I so enjoy. The character's were funny, witty and it was a heartfelt tale.Enjoyable welcome read. A note to readers even though this is part of a series like some books if you read out of the series your lost.You could read this book out of sequence and still have and understanding of whats going on.
