Review by Booklist Review

When fans last left Nick Gautier, he was fighting for his life. Again. What started with football-team zombies in Infinity (2010) continued on with demons possessing his friends in Inferno (2013), leading fed-up Nick to wish, not for the first time, for normalcy. In this latest installment in the Chronicles of Nick series, from New York Times best-selling Kenyon, he gets his wish, and it's not at all as he expected: he's a short blond nerd, the son of a beefy pro-football player, and nothing is as it should be. Nothing about any of this was right or normal, he says, upon finding his mother, once a stripper, is now a Realtor. How did he get here, and, more important, how can he get back to his old life? The details of Nick's new life come in little trickles, which makes the revelations pop that much more. Kenyon writes for a mixed audience to great success, easily maintaining the excitement, intrigue, and humor of a series that appeals to guys and girls alike.--Comfort, Stacey Copyright 2014 Booklist

Nick Gautier has abruptly entered a new reality and he's not happy about it. The young and powerful demon's son finds himself living in a world of normal people. His friends, family, mentor, and enemies are all present, but they're all suddenly different. Nick has changed as well and must uncover the root of this upheaval without his powers. Narrator Graham's voicings are colorful and are well tuned to the particular characters they represent. With deliberation and emphasis, Graham's raspy voice can turn up the story's tension several notches in a mere sentence. Ages 12-up. A St. Martin's Griffin hardcover. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

In the fifth installment, Nick has been pulled into an alternate dimension where he has no powers and his allies might be out to kill him. To escape, he has to embrace his demon heritage without turning evil. Nick's signature snark is back in full force. A lightning-fast plot and action with a touch of romance take readers on a wild ride. (c) Copyright 2014. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
