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?
Our beloved Nick is back , all healed from his comatose state in Infamous. Facing new and old enemies, Nicholas Ambrosius Gautier found his most powerful enemy is not the entities or humans that surround him, but his real enemy is himself and his ego. Sneaky enemies sought to boost his traitorous ego up in an effort to bring out the Malachi. Insightful and exciting page-turning plot twists show the great power of love and how simple words can create and destroy people (and even powerful beings).
…for some reason, I felt oddly bereft and slightly depressed after reading this. Illusion can’t come soon enough! I NEED to know what happened next! RAAWWWWWWR!
