"Chronicles of Nick" series book 5
on 10 October 2014
*** warning - contains spoilers if you haven't read book 4 "Inferno" ***
"Illusion" is aptly named as Nick deals with the ramifications of the massive cliff-hanger event that ended book 4 "Inferno". Sucked into an alternate dimension, he's not only physically different, but so are those he considers his friends. Personalities have changed dramatically, expected friends are now enemies and the good guys may just be bringing on Armageddon. Worst of all, Nick may still have his Malachai soul; however with no powers at all he's easy prey for the supernatural enemies that stalk him.
This continues to be an entertaining and intriguing series with some surprising twists to the plot that keeps the reader hooked. The dialogue is sharp and amusing as Nick's sarcastic or flippant responses raise a smile, whilst the action is constant as Nick faces off new enemies. SK's imagination should be labelled the 8th wonder of the world; she always manages to introduce new characters that stand out even amongst a phenomenal established cast. This book is no exception, and again a thought provoking epilogue has me wondering how one particular character will impact the story line in future books. 4½ stars
