[Review] - Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Title: Inferno
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: Chronicles of Nick
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: April 9, 2013

Summary:  The heat is on, and a new threat to humanity has risen…

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?

Thoughts: Just turned 16 and has his drivers license in hand. This should be a time of fun and easy freedom with thoughts of girls and prom. But he was born Nick Gautier. He is the son of the Malachai and has a future that is death and destruction. Nick's just learned that is girlfriend has been sent to kill him and his enemies are closing in on him once again.  Nick would gladly take some easy fun any day instead of current problems.

Excellent read! This is the 4th installment in the series and by far one of the best. Inferno is fast, intense and the stakes are raised.  No spoilers here but I will say to Dark-Hunter fans that the Prologue will get you right in the heart.  As ever, I was blown away by the story and especially the ending, I didn't see that coming. I can't wait to get the next book to see how Nick is gonna get out of this one. If you haven't picked this series up, definitely do so.

Score: 4 Stars
