Now, before anyone starts throwing stones at me, let me tell you that it hurts me more than you to give this rating to a SK book. However, after the last CON books, there are some things I cannot get past anymore. It's one thing to leave your reader mildly confused and wondering what you mean because they are consumed by the mistery. It's an entirely different thing to make your readers feel stupid because they do not understand what's happening and feel like they missed a book between this one and the one before. And that's how I felt while reading most of this book. First of all, you cannot drop bombs in the first two pages of the book and pretend like nothing happened. You cannot take for granted that the reader will connect the dots and fill in the blanks and then act like if it's the most natural thing in the world. And yes, I'm refering to the fact that (view spoiler)[ Xev is Nick's whatever-grandad and I do not know where that came from, I do not remember it being explained in the previous book and there is not a single line in this one that makes reference to how Nick came to that conclusion (hide spoiler)] Following that thought, the genealogy on this book got too much confusing. I had to literally take a stack of post-its to take notes of what I was reading along with the journal I was writing on to make this review. If I have to take notes like I'm studying to read a book, dear author, you're not doing it right. When I come to a SK book, I expect it to be a fun time, not a chore; not like I'm writing a paper on the genealogy of the Summerian pantheon or whatever. While this info-dump on ancestry gave many answers to questions I hadn't even asked, the problem remains in that it's basically info-dump. SHOW, DO NOT TELL. AND THE EYE OF ANANKE DOES NOT COUNT AS "SHOWING". Next point, the characters. Surprise, Nekoda is still here, I still do not know why because she literally adds nothing to the story, and oh, yes, now I cannot get rid of her because she's predestined to meet Nick across time because timey-wimey-reencarnation-thingy (view spoiler)[ Seriously? Bathymaas, Aricles, and all that stuff AGAIN? (hide spoiler)] . Yes, you can see I do not like her. I have never considered myself a hater of anything, but Nekoda is one of those characters that baffle me. If I cannot find a reason to think of her as interesting after 7 books, gurl, you're not it. Next in line is Nick. I like Nick, I get it that everything that is happening to him is more than he can take and he resorts to sarcasm and awkwardness, but it's been 7 books. You're almost 18, I think? Boy, take something seriously. I always say the same because I still hope that SK will give me that Nick in the next book, but I better just keep hoping. Also, his obsession and posessivenes towards Nekoda is not pretty nor romantic. Your woman? Your girl? You're a teenager, and you already think of women as your posession, way to go Nick. This book relies heavily on secondary characters, through who we discover all this mess of genealogy that I cannot keep track of. That's good and bad. Good because it gives depth to the characters, we can connect with them and finally care for them. It's bad because that's basically the whole book. There is no distinct plot, nothing that really compels the reader to keep reading except be done with the book. If you like character-driven stories and can really keep track of SK's mythology, you're gonna love this book. But if you like some story mixed with that, this book is going to frustrate you. I'm giving this book three stars instead of two for 2 main reasons: First, it's the guest starring of classics such as Kyrian and Acheron. I actually think that we did not need a whole flashback for Kyrian's story. We've been told that tale a thousand times in both series, DH and CON; repeating it just takes space away from more important matters...like a proper plot. However, any book that has any classic DH, and specially Acheron (because Acheron is my bae no matter what), gets an extra point from me. I'm that lame. The second reason is the epilogue. Let's put this out there, the only real piece of story worth in this book (apart from all the info-dump that could have been done better) is the epilogue. The epilogue is the only reason I'm still craving for the next book. The book left me so numb and overwhelmed at the same time that even the Dark Hunter progenie that makes an appearance here could not shake my from my stupor. BUT THE EPILOGUE IS LIFE! So, would I recommend this book? Well, if you're invested in this series and in the Dark Hunter Series, well, yes. I would. It's not a terrible book, I'm just a bit disappointed because SK has me used to a different type of story. So yes. Even though my review is a little ranty, all over the place, and the rating is not that great, I think people will still enjoy this book and have their minds blown with the pieces of information that SK gave us here. 05/05/2016: I just finished this. I need to reflect on what I just read beacause I'm not sure how I feel. I took a tone of notes. I'll write a complete review once my brain is functioning again. EDIT 16/02/2016: I made my preorder the other day. AND NOW THEY'VE PUSHED BACK THE BOOK A MONTH. I'M NOT HAPPY. EDIT: HABEMUS COVER, YAY! It's messing with my OCD that the title and symbol is not centered, but the cover is prettyyyyy. Instinct hasn't even come out yet and I already need this one. GIMME NOW. No, really. This series has become my "most expected book of the year". I need my fix of the Dark Hunter world or I'm gonna go cray-cray

This book is full of information and sometimes I didn't know if all that the author was telling me was something she had written in a previous book or perhaps it was a new thing I couldn't remember at all, I think part of the problem is that each book comes with a year apart. Another thing that drove me out of orbit, was to keep up with all the characters, are sooo many and at this point, I need a family tree to find out who is the cousin's uncle's brother Nick's grandfather. Really! While I enjoyed reading Invision, because there are many surprises along its pages; I have admit that I feel we didn't got anywhere with this novel. As if Kenyon told us much but the story itself, the great life story of Nick doesn't seem to go anywhere, as if he had solved nothing. And I really think it's time Kenyon, have Nick matures a bit. I love that he has a very relaxed personality, however, sometimes I felt it was too much, and even how some of the characters interact with each other made me think of teenagers rather than warriors with hundreds of years of age. Although InVision is much better than Instinct, it fails to stand out. Just leave a deep desire for the next book, but not because all of this was wonderful in itself, but because the end is too open and as a fan of the series, it's logical I wanna know how it ends, but honestly, I hope Kenyon do something for this series shine, because otherwise, it will pass unnoticed. ESPAÑOL No estoy segura de cómo siento respecto a este libro. Es decir, amo los libros de Sherrilyn Kenyon, pero últimamente siento que ya no puedo seguirles el ritmo. Este libro está lleno de info y en ocasiones no sabía si todo lo que la autora me estaba diciendo era algo que ella ya había escrito en un libro previo, o si acaso era un dato nuevo que me estaba soltado así como así. Creo que parte del problema es que cada libro sale con un año de diferencia. Otra cosa que me sacaba de órbita, era seguirle el ritmo a todos los personajes, son tantos ya, que a estas alturas, necesito un árbol genealógico para poder saber quién es el primo del tío del hermano del abuelo de Nick. Aunque disfruté leer Invisión, porque hay muchas sorpresas a lo largo de sus páginas; también debo reconocer que siento que no llegamos a ningún lado con esta novela. Como que la autora nos dijo tanto pero la historia en sí, la gran historia de vida de Nick no parece ir a ningún lado, como si no se hubiera solucionado nada. Y realmente creo que ya es momento que Kenyon haga que Nick madure un poco. Me encanta que él tenga una personalidad muy relajada, sin embargo, a veces sentía que era demasiado, e incluso, la manera en que algunos de los personajes interactúan entre sí, me hacía pensar en adolescentes en lugar de guerreros con cientos de años de edad. Aunque Invisión es mucho mejor que Instinct, no logra destacar. Sólo deja un profundo deseo por el siguiente libro, pero no porque todo ésto sea maravilloso en sí, sino porque ese final es demasiado abierto y como fan de la serie, es lógico que desee saber cómo acaba todo, pero honestamente, espero que la autora haga algo para que esta serie brille, porque de lo contrario, pasará sin pena ni gloria.

My quick and simple overall: a good installment that covers more of characters. Now on to the final book!

    This book is all over the place. It has multiple information dumps as if the author needed to fill in the empty spaces of the story, so she decides to give us every character's back story all in one book. The repeated flashbacks were tedious. The words "filler book" seem to be appropriate, but let's face it...this series is the one that won't end. Even Rowling stopped at 7 books. It is odd that she chose to give some major information about characters who really have more of a role in her adult This book is all over the place.

It is odd that she chose to give some major information about characters who really have more of a role in her adult series than her YA series in the confines of the YA book. (Though I'm sure her adult fans read both.) This has always concerned me. Young readers who want to know more about these characters will naturally be led to the adult books which are steamy romances that discuss what grown ups do with other grown ups and not what a younger YA crowd should be reading.

    This is definitely my least favorite in the series so far. The plot didn't progress much at all. The author decided now was the time to info dump all of the different types of beings and how they're all interrelated to each other which was too much. And Nick's characterization changed a ton for the worse. He was raised by strong women who instilled in him an enormous amount of respect for women, but now he views them as "his woman" or "his girl", and it doesn't sit right.

I think I liked this book the best so far. The Eye gave him the power to see things in the past and future, but I like that Nick has begun to question whether or not he should try to change what is going to happen. Sometimes it is better not knowing and just making the best decision you can at that moment. Unfortunately, by the time Nick has begun to wonder about this, he has already gone forward in time and the questions raised by what he sees can't help but tempt you to keep reading the series. It might be a little while before I can get the next book, but it's definitely going on my list.

That is the only way I can sum up Invision by Sherrilyn Kenyon for you. It’s a wild, crazy, information overload adventure filled with our favourite characters and Kenyon’s overly imaginative mind. My note taking skills were seriously put to task in this one. In true Kenyon fashion she continues her CON series by answering questions from the past book, creating new questions and dropping bombs on us we don’t see coming. These bombs leave our head spinning, jaw hanging open, and in the words of Achmed the Dead Terrorist yelling out Holy Crap!!! I don’t know how many times I said that, along with my other favourites I tend to shout out; ‘No way!, Oh come on, seriously???? I thought my jaw was going to come unhinged by books end from all the shock factor she generates in Invision. However, as much as Kenyon drove me crazy and made me feel like this book should’ve been longer for all the information she tossed my way, I did love this addition to her CON series. There was never a dull moment in this one. Speaking of which, the information comes at us fast and furious and there really are moments when you will find yourself re-reading a paragraph or page 2 or 3 times to make sure you read that right. The bombs Kenyon drops on us are mind-boggling and you’ll just have to read this one to find out what they are, because as you all know I don’t like to spoil plot lines and those types of reveals. I prefer to let you experience those reveals as I did, and enjoy Kenyon’s gift for wowing the audience. Some of these bomb drops include; -learning more about Cherise and Kody and just what they mean to Nick and his Malachai -the reveal of Xev and Caleb’s dad and their connection to Nick, yes Xev and Caleb are half siblings -the reveal of who Jared’s parents are and his connection to Nick -the reveal of Xev’s mom -we finally learn just who and what Verlyn is -Nick’s connection to M’adoc the Dream warrior, and what it would mean should Nick fall before having a son -Apollymi’s brother is…thus connecting her to her Nick as well These reveals left me shocked and sputtering and needing to remember to breath!!!! One event Kenyon finally explains and I don’t feel I’m spoiling anything for you if I tell is how the first Malachai – Monakribos came into existence. It’s no wonder the Malachai is one pissed off preternatural being. Monakribos was in love with Rhubati, but he was tricked into killing her by Grimm and Laguerre because they drugged him. Once the drugs wore off, he saw what he’d done and went crazy, took her blood and painted the Malachai symbols on his body and using magic damned all the world and everyone in it to hell until they fixed the wrong done to him. Hell I’d be pissed too if that was done to me, and you can’t help but feel for the guy and see where he’s coming from. We also learn that from Rhubati’s death Bathymaas springs forth from her body at the moment, but is a shell of Rhubati because she’s missing her heart. It’s not until Bethany is reborn from Bathymaas, and Styxx falls in love with her giving her back her heart that Rhubati is finally complete. So this is why Kody has felt connected to Nick from the very beginning of the series. We also learn more about the Eye of Ananke and just what it does. It shows you the ‘why of the matter or person’ and it can’t lie or distort the truth. What you see has either happened or will come into being. Thanks to the eye Nick keeps having these visions of events past(Monakribos/Rhubati), and events to come. With events to come Kenyon launches us into the far future where we meet everyone’s grown kids; Kyrian’s, Nick’s, Simi’s, etc, all doing battle against the Malachai Ciprian. Ciprian has freed Noir and Azuza by opening the Gates to Azmodea, and we also learn that Simi’s son Lucien is in love with Nick’s daughter Charity, but never find out who the father of Simi’s kids are because Kody says it would’ve altered the future if Nick had learned that tidbit. Now I really want to know that answer, but in true Kenyon form she doesn’t speak of it again, arrrrr, so frustrating!!!! I guess we just keep reading the series. By books end another bombshell is dropped as we learn Ciprian is Nick’s kid as well, but I was completely stunned and pissed off by the reveal of his mother. There’s no way Nick would get together with this female if she were the last female standing. I’m thinking he had to have been tricked like Monakribos was before becoming the Malachai. I really wish the next book were released already. Why must Kenyon make me wait another year to find out more about this reveal and everything else she dropped on my head in Invision. Oops, before I forget, one little tidbit we find out that is funny, but answers a few questions about our zombie hunting fave Bubba, his dad is actually a former Hellchaser, but that part of Bubba’s blood is dormant and his father never told him about it, but feels guilty because one of his dad’s enemies is the one responsible for Bubba’s wife and son’s death. His dad feels guilty over it and keeps a close watch on his son now. No wonder Nick and Bubba hit it off so well and why Bubba is attracted to Nick’s mom. Yes, once again the plot thickens. No wonder the guy is a little cooky, but we love him all the same. That part of the book had me howling with laughter along with many others parts of Invision. As I said at the beginning of my review, I felt like I was on some crazy acid trip by the time I was finished this one. Invision is everything you come to expect from a Kenyon novel; well developed characters you can’t help but come to love, humour and sarcasm in bundles, twists and turns you never see coming, and reveals about characters that leave you stunned speechless, or yelling like a loon at you Kobo e-reader. I don’t know how Kenyon plans to pull everything together past, present and future by the time this series ends, and we get Nick’s adult DH book, but one thing we can count on, we’ll be in for a wild ride to get there. For all you Menyon and CON fans out there Invision is a must read and great installment to the series. Until next time my fellow Menyon fans, happy reading, and I’m off to try and find my zen again, LOL!!! Marcie (TRC)

    I have said before and I will say again, I love these characters and this world so much. And this book was no exception. We saw Ash, Simi, Styxx and Kyrian and it made me so happy. Also we got to see Nick and all his squad, whom I've grown to love. I love being inside Nick's head, he's so sarcastic and funny. But my favorite is Caleb, the more I know about him, the more in love I am. I loved all the flashbacks in this book, also the flashfowards. I love seeing our character's pasts and their kids I have said before and I will say again, I love these characters and this world so much. And this book was no exception.

I love seeing our character's pasts and their kids in the future. I just wish they would have been happy instead of in a warzone. One thing I hate about this is that with so many characters and mythologies and everything I get confused. Sometimes a name is mentioned and I know I've heard about that character before but I can't just keep track of them all. It's so confusing. After a while I catch up, but really. It's really confusing. The spoiler, more than my opinion is details I'm sure I will forget and I think they are important for the next book. Feel free to read them, but they are more notes than part of this review. (view spoiler)[And Jaden is Jared's grandfather?! Who saw that one coming?! I really, really wanted them to be a couple, and now that I know the truth about their connection it's weird to think about it. Also Jaden is Appolymi's brother! That means Xev and Caleb are Ash's cousins! And Jaden is Nick's great-great-grandtfather. Xev is his great-grandfather. And Jared is his grandfather and Cherise's father. This family tree is so freaking confusing. Does this means that Ash and Nick are related?! Oh god. My brain is starting to melt. And Kyrian's son is named Val! Yes, I approve! It's good to know that Kyrian and Val ended up being good friends in the end. Also who are Lucien parents?! It must be someone Nick hates. Who could it be! I can't believe Cyprian is Nick's son, with Laguerre! WTH. How did that even happen?! And what's up with Nick's new neighbour?! I'm sure there's something off with him, otherwise he wouldn't be there. And how is Madoc Nick's brother?! I'm sure they explained it in one of the previous books but I can't remember.

    I love this series and I can't wait for her next Dark-Hunter book to come out.... I love everything that she writes and she's one of my favorite authors aside from J.R. Ward, Lara Adrian and lots of other authors that I'm just discovering....I can't wait for the next on her Dark-Hunter series and I'll be waiting if there will be an 8th on her Chronicles of Nick series... I did enjoy reading this one....

It doesn't mesh with Kody's memory of the future. We learn the history of the Malachai, the beginning and all the sons after, however, we do not see what happens to the first. Verlyn tells what happened to him and Rubati; from their blood Bathymaas is made; from the first M's blood his son comes forth. Something is draining Nick's powers. He's burning up and freezing cold. Meanwhile Nick's gang gets bigger and bigger. With Verlyn's help, he returns to Azmodea and breaks Aeron and Zavid out for Nick. Back at home, Nick is again framed, this time for murder. The worse thing for demons is getting in trouble with human authority like how Adarian was framed with mass murder for bodies that don't disappear but the souls remain, like the demon Div. Nick meets Takeshi and learns about time jump. Sees that he hasn't strayed far from his fate but someone is messing with his future timeline. Possible reason, could Ambrose have suceeded? Can pith points be changed? From the last book we learn that it is difficult for M to trust his allies; he is always able to trust Ambrose, the ultimate question now is, can he still trust his future self? Read by Tina

    InVision By Sherrilyn Kenyon Chronicles of Nick #7 I think I should have re-read the series or, at least, the previous book before I read this book because I was having trouble remembering what happened or who certain characters were. Sherrilyn Kenyon has written such a wonderfully complicated and complex series and has so much action packed into the books that I am having trouble keeping up with everything. Also, although this is a spinoff of the Dark-Hunter series, events have been changed becaus InVision By Sherrilyn Kenyon Chronicles of Nick #7 I think I should have re-read the series or, at least, the previous book before I read this book because I was having trouble remembering what happened or who certain characters were. Sherrilyn Kenyon has written such a wonderfully complicated and complex series and has so much action packed into the books that I am having trouble keeping up with everything. Also, although this is a spinoff of the Dark-Hunter series, events have been changed because Nick has been forewarned about them by his future self so I get a little confused sometimes. And because I have read many books in the year since the last book came out, I just can’t remember everything. Besides stopping a few times to look up a few things, I loved this book. I adore Nick with his Cajun drawl, smartass mouth, tacky Hawaiian shirts that his mom buys him and his loyalty and love for his friends and his mom. He cracks me up most of the time with all of his sarcastic remarks and his thoughts. He has such a heavy and dark load on his shoulders with trying to save the world from himself and all, yet he keeps a good or mostly good attitude towards life. He’s just an all-around great character. A ton of stuff happened in this book. Let’s see if I can summarize it. Nick was devastated when his friend Zavid died in the last book but at the beginning of this book he discovered that Zavid was still alive in Azmodea, the underworld and, of course, he wants to go rescue him but he just can’t go march off and save his friend when he has to go to school and maintain the illusion of a normal teenage life. His mom has no clue that he is the Malachai demon or that his friends aren’t human or that his cat is really his great-grandfather and an ancient demon. He doesn’t think his mom could handle the truth so he hides it all from her. Plus, he is determined to beat his destiny and have a normal life. Meanwhile, Noir is abducting all of Nick’s protectors which is making Nick weaker and Noir stronger. Dagon and Nashira went missing without Nick even noticing. He didn’t even realize anything was going on until Aeron disappeared. Nick starts feeling achy and sick which should mean that Noir is getting more powerful but when Jaden and Kaziel go to rescue Aeron and Zavid, they notice Noir is also weak. They are baffled. No being should be able to weaken the Malachai and Noir at the same time. They wonder if another Malachai is in play except there can only be one Malachai at a time. As I mentioned, the plot and characters are complicated. I get so confused at who is related to whom so I started keeping a chart. I think I have most of it straight but I’m still not sure. I patched most of it together from this book. If you have not read the series, you won’t understand. Xev is Nick’s great-grandfather on his mom’s side. Jared is Xev’s son which makes him Cherise’s (Nick’s mom) real father. She was adopted so she has no clue about all of this. Jaden is Xev and Caleb’s father but they have different mothers. Azura is Xev’s mother. Tiamet and Chronus are Jaden’s parents. Apollymi is Jaden’s sister. I hope I didn’t get anything wrong. One of greatest loves in genealogy but my ancestors are all dead. They aren’t gods, demons, or immortals who have lived thousands and thousands of years and still look like they are in their teens or 20s. Sherrilyn Kenyon never disappoints me. She is a literary genius and keeps me wanting for more with all her series and books. She is still my favorite author and will probably always be. It will be hard to wait for the next book in this series. www.paranormalromanceslut.com

    I’m getting kind of tired of these messed-up Chronicles. These guys are just too annoying. They’re teen-age, bumbling idiots, even the so-called grownups are strange. There’s too much angst. You’d think after all Nick has gone through he’d be a bit more mature and responsible, instead of whining all the time. If I didn't like the rest of the Dark Hunter’s series so much I’d probably drop it. At least it reads fast. There’s not much real plot. Some people get lost then rescued.

Some people are forgiven and reunited. Some people just run around trying to figure out what going on (Nick & friends). A few short good battles. That’s it. The only real series plot advancement I can see is the addition of a few new characters and a friend ‘might’ have been possessed. But something is still out to kill Nick and/or take his Malachai powers. Yawn. Most of this is filler in my opinion. We get a lot of going into both the past and future to see details of events. Some are like Nick ‘seeing’ visions, while others are just put there to help any new readers know what going on. Which is crazy since we who have been reading the series still have trouble understanding it. Fave Scenes: Room 114, Nick’s vision of Malphas & Lilliana’s meeting, Simi’s visit and Menyara’s return.

    Another Sherrilyn Kenyon series deteriorating to garbage. Last book, Cody was related to every fricking character that popped up--this book, Nick is suddenly related to every character, including characters from previous books WHERE THEY WERE NOT RELATED. Characters just keep getting piled on to the plot line, characters are referred to by multiple names, Nick is jumping around in time and the plot/story keeps being completely changed--it's just becoming a hot mess not worth the brain power it t Another Sherrilyn Kenyon series deteriorating to garbage.

I read the books because I cared about the characters and their self-made family. They are turning into such over the top, over done comic book versions of what they were that I find they hold little interest for me. At least for the audiobook version the narrator corrected all the horrendous english poofster accents he had given characters in the previous book. Unfortunately, he is now making Simi sound like Yoda. ...and if I hear "boyo" one more time i'll turn in to a homicidal demon.

    So good!! It's been a while since I read the last book so I was worried I would forget things but this book did an awesome job at recapping what's going on with out actually saying what's going on.. if that makes sense. I'm not going to write a full review right now because the book just came out today and I really don't want to give anything away. I will say that it kind of started out a little slowly. It picks up pretty fast and a lot of things happen that I totally did not see coming. I was So good!!

I have been obsessed with him for awhile now and I finally got to learn a lot about him! I can't even explain how excited I was by that. That made the whole freaking book for me. And that ending!!! ahhh. Im talking like the last 5 sentences of the book. Blew my mind! I can't believe I have to wait for the next book! Well done Sherrilyn Kenyon!

He can't be sure anymore whether those flashes are real or possibilities. He gets useful information about person's pasts and about surprises from future. And as usual he keeps collecting new ally from surprising places, he's collecting then like stray dogs :). But there is somebody who wants to change the future even more than Nick and he and his ally are two steps ahead of Nick. As always, it's an interesting story but now I'm questioning all I have known about Nick and Ambrosius so far and I'm looking for a book about Simi and Madoc ;).

They provide twists in an ongoing storyline that keeps the reader on the edge and suspensefully waiting for a resolution yet to come. Invision is a great addition to the Chronicles of Nick and as usual, I’ll be impatiently waiting for what Ms. Kenyon comes up with next. *****Reviewed by Xtreme-Delusions*****

    To be honest, I don't remember a lot happening in this book. It felt like another intermediate chapter to stretch the series out. Kenyon's writing is certainly getting better, or rather, she's becoming more comfortable writing Y/A. While I do think this has the best writing in the CON series thus far, the plot felt incomplete and was hard to follow. A lot of new names and ideas that are disorienting. This is most likely a case of "the manuscript was too long, so we cut it in half," which would ex To be honest, I don't remember a lot happening in this book.

This is most likely a case of "the manuscript was too long, so we cut it in half," which would explain the fairly short length of this novel. A lot of questions raised by the plot were left unanswered and over all it didn't have the action that the previous books had. There was a good amount of backstory revealed and the revelations made so I guess it worth reading.

    Its so very easy after so many books in a series to begin to truly love the characters. At first you love them despite their faults and then somewhere along the way you love them because of their faults.. That is how I feel about the characters in this book. I feel like even the secondary characters over time aren't secondary anymore.. they are the main characters just like Nick, and honestly without them I feel like the book would loose a lot of its entertainment factor.

I feel like even the secondary characters over time aren't secondary anymore.. they are the main characters just like Nick, and honestly without them I feel like the book would loose a lot of its entertainment factor. That being said.... its super overwhelming that in every single addition to this series we get a whole heck of a lot of more dumped mythology with a ton of new characters that are almost impossible to keep straight.. and now its like a family reunion where everyone is supposed to be semi important and is somehow your relative.. Also I feel sad that some of our important characters from the first several books are MIA as the story progresses. The introduction of crap loads of new characters with new backstories and new problems as well as new threats aren't the only confusing part of the book. The fact that characters are jumping all throughout time further adds to the chaos making it to where the reader is absolutely unable to follow a projection to come to a conclusion and must be lead/chained and dragged the entire time by the author through the story. I myself am not a huge fan of that. I like to see a clear ARC for a story and am usually so excited when I find that I may have been right about the movement of a story in a certain direction. These books however are impossible to predict the best thing you can do is hold on for dear life and hope you make it out the other side lol. All that being said... its book 7.. I'm used to all this by now. Nick and his entourage find themselves in yet another scenario where Nick's powers are under threat and he and his friends must find out what is happening and stop it before the end of the world. I mean in all honesty, no one can say these books are boring and Nick and his self depreciating humor are just so hard not to love. The narrator Holter Graham, does a phenomenal job really embodying and acting out all of his errant and ADD thoughts. I'm at the point now where I'm wondering if this story is ever going to end.. I mean why would it when it can continue forever on an episodic basis? At least they are short and entertaining lol.

OKay...*takes a few deep breaths* besides that reaction, a lot of this book had me very confused, regarding all the timelines and blood relatives. Honestly i cant keep up anymore, its a struggle, really. Im just like "yeah....of course they are related" It honestly shouldnt even surprise me anymore to learn about origin stories and whatever. But i was really confused in this book, but i made myself just continue reading and not focus on the nitty gritty details and on the bigger picture And even then....speaking of origin stories, we learned ALOT about some of nick's friends, which was kinda cool, actually. They were always dancing around certain subjects so it was nice to read about how some things actually occurred. And of course, Nick was his great humorous and witty self. I just love him so much. THe story was pretty good, despite all my confusion. THough i thought the issues would be resolved more? NOt just lead to more questions, or just be dissolved like that? But whatever...maybe it was a bit rushed? Or maybe that was me?? Either way, it still had the same heart and soul of any Nick Novel. ANd i always love his friends, and family. HIs loyalty and strength never cease to amaze me. And his honor and his friends who are willing to die for him, literally. That always gets me a bit teary eyed. Anyway, i know im being very vague about the plot, but its because this far into the series, i cant have spoilers. If you want to know, read the book, or the first if you are interested in this series. It is really great. And yeah, it was a novel I enjoyed and I cant wait for the next one, thats going to be interesting. I may add more to my review later, but for now, ive probably rambled long enough. So if you guys have any questions or concerns, drop em below. Till next time. Bye.

    Although this book felt more like a filler book and not a great deal happened in terms of plot, I did really enjoy it. Nick realises that some of his guardians are missing and when he loses his Malachai powers, he knows something is going on. Luckily for him he has a good group of friends he can rely on to help out. There were a lot of visions, flashbacks really for some of the other characters and whilst I did enjoy reading about these characters' past lives, I don't feel it really add much to Although this book felt more like a filler book and not a great deal happened in terms of plot, I did really enjoy it.

    So many plot twists, and holes, and characters you thought you knew connecting to other characters in a weird way and not even bothering to explain how... after this book, I need a timeline and a family tree. How is literally everyone related and how did I not know before this book?
