Illusion (Chronicles of Nick #5) - Sherrilyn Kenyon

Be careful what you wish for..

You just might get it.

Nick Gautier is tired of his destiny. He doesn’t want to be the son of a demon who’s fated to end the world. Nor does he want to see another demon or other preternatural creature who wants to kill or enslave him. He just wants to be normal and have normal problems like everyone else.

But normality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. When he gets sucked into an alternate reality where his mother has married his mentor and his Atlantean god best friend has become a human geek, he begins to understand that no life is free of pain, and that every person has a specific place in the universe... Even the son of a hated demon.

Most of all, he sees that his powers aren’t the curse he thought they were, and that the world needs a champion, especially one its enemies can’t imagine rising up to defend the ones he should destroy.

Old enemies and new friends square off for a major battle that will either restore Nick to his real world, or end him forever.

Chronicles of Nick :: Series

Please note that the Chronicles of Nick is a Young Adult spin-off series from the Dark-Hunter novels. If you'd like to read the ones with more adult content, they are listed under the Dark-Hunter-series.

Quote from Author's homepage:

"Q: Do the books have to be read in order?
A: Absolutely not. As with all my series, they have recurring characters and do refer to events in past books, but each one is written with new readers in mind. So if you pick up in the middle of the series or skip around, you won't miss anything.

Q: Is this the same Nick that you have in the Dark-Hunter novels?
A: Yes and no. This series starts with Nick at age 14 and on the day he meets Kyrian of Thrace and gets sucked into the world of the Dark-Hunters.

It's an alternate view of the Dark-Hunter world that was written in response to all the fans who wanted to have Dark-Hunter books the whole family could love and from younger readers whose parents wouldn't let them read the more adult novels.

It has the same humor, sarcasm and adventure as the adult series, but in this one you get to see Tabitha, Amanda, Wren, Nick and other favorites as teenagers and young adults. Even Simi will be out in full demon glory as they protect New Orleans from the Daimons and other evils.

Q: How many books will there be?
A: 10 are planned."
