Publisher Comments:

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 sometimes, you have to trust your enemy to save your friends. But what do you do when that enemy is you?

Inferno is the fourth book in Sherrilyn Kenyon's Chronicles of Nick.

Nick now has his driver’s license and he will use it though turning sixteen isn’t quite what he thought it would be. Most boys his age are thinking about and worrying over prom dates and college applications. Nick is neck deep in enemies that are more than happy to make sure he doesn’t make it through another day. He is no longer sure just who he can trust or if he can trust anyone. His one ally seems to be the one person who he was told would ultimately kill him.

Life is anything except ordinary when it is spent serving the undead. Now his enemies have summoned an ancient force that is powerful enough to have the gods in fear of it. As Nick learns to control and command the elements he must master the one that will help him combat his latest foe and it is also the one that is most likely to destroy him. As the old saying goes fire shows no mercy. If Nick can survive this latest round he will ultimately have to sacrifice a part of himself. Sometimes though the best sacrifice isn’t the sanest move. Sometimes it is the one that confuses your enemies the most. Sometimes you have to trust the enemy to save those most important to you though what you are supposed to do when the enemy is yourself is anyone’s guess.


This is proving to be a fun series that gets better with each book read. It will also have readers eagerly wanting to read the next book. Seeing how Nick grows with each book and how he bumbles his way to saving the day makes for a book that is very difficult to put down once the reader starts it. The situations get more complicated and yet how Nick gets out of each one will have the readers at the very least chuckling because only Nick seems able to get into so much trouble trying to do the right thing. This is proving to be a series for the keeper shelf. It is also a series that just seems to get better and better. It is fun to revisit earlier versions of the Dark Hunters and see how time has changed them.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

This series is like chocolate - even though I know I shouldn't, one page, one chapter, is never enough - I can't stop until the entire book is gone & I feel guilty for not doing the things I should, yet utterly sated & happy for having indulged.:)

Every book of this series gets better & more intense. This may have been my favorite yet... Nick explores what happens when he leans more towards the darker side of his nature in this installment and it's not pretty - loved ones are put at risk (yet again), he gets in a huge bind (what's new, right!?), demons are possessing people close to him, Death (a.k.a Grim) is manipulating things to go his way and working with some other unsavory folk, love is tenuous at best, some huge revelations are made about several big players, and Nick's world is turned upside down. And then there was the epilogue... just wow! I cannot wait to see where Sherrilyn goes with this. I did not see that coming and am dying to see how it plays out.

In a word: Utterly fantastic!! An easy 5 Skull read for me and I think that everyone should read these books. They may be classified as Young Adult, but they read like a gritty Urban Fantasy and are must reads for all Dark-Hunter fans.
