REVIEW: Invincible by Sherrilyn Kenyon

*This review was originally posted on Paperback Dolls
Invincible: The Chronicles of NickNick 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...

INIVINCIBLE picks up right where INFINITY left off....and I mean immediately following the event of the first book. I loved that I was able to get right back into the story.

Nick is trying to deal with the fall out from the Zombie attacks in the first book and due to his new found abilities and his new supernatural "friends", Nick is juggling a lot of different things.

Once again, the relationship between Nick and his mother really shines through and is one of the things that makes me love Nick's character so much. With his mother unemployed all of a sudden, Nick's friend the Dark Hunter Kyrian, arranges for his mother to have a job at the bar Sanctuary. What Nick's mother is unaware of is that Sanctuary is run by a group of Were's and also happens to be a popular hang out for the supernatural, but there are more dangerous things than the crew at Sanctuary. Death himself has decided to pay Nick a visit and "help" him with his powers.

What is more...all of a sudden Nick is getting attention from the hot chicks at his school and despite the fact that he is wearing a cast on his arm, the new coach recruits him for the football team. In a blink of an eye Nick finds himself not so uncool anymore, but is his luck really changing or is there more evil hands working behind the scenes???

In INVINCIBLE, we really get to know some of the characters better. There is back story given on some of the side characters and it was very touching and emotional at certain parts. Especially with Bubba and Caleb. One of the greatest things that the author is able to do though is write really tear-jerker moments but rebound with a touch of humor. It made the book easy to read.

I really love this series. This book is just as good as the first in the series and I can not wait another year to read the this book in The Chronicles Of Nick series. Sherrilyn Kenyon knows how to write from a young male's perspective and she does it in a way that still keeps a girls interest. I fully admit I have a HUGE crush on Nick Gautier and love all the different characters.

Peace & Love
