Be careful what you wish for . . . You just might get it. Nick Gautier is tired of his destiny. He doesnt want to be the son of a demon whos 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 isnt all its 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 arent the curse he thought they were, and that the world needs a champion, especially one its enemies cant 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 in #1 bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyons fifth novel in The Chronicles of Nick series, Illusion.

This book was a delight to read. Nick goes from being an inconfident boy to a young adult who learns to accept and embrace who he wants to be and the power he was born with. He learns that it's not heritage that makes a person but rather thier actions and this leads to a serious character growth that stunned me. I completely loved this book and all the characters in it.

Nick Gautier is finding that as tired as he is of his destiny that sometimes when you wish for something else you might get it and that life just might end up worse. He doesn’t want to be destined to end the world as the son of a demon. He is also tired of demons and other preternatural creatures that want him dead. He is wishing for normal problems and to just be a normal teen.

Nick ends up getting sucked into an alternate reality where he finds that normality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In the alternate reality his mother is married to his mentor and his best friend back home who is also an Atlantean god is in this reality a human geek. Nick learns that no life is free of pain and that every person has their own place in the universe. Even when you are the son of a hated demon. More importantly he learns that the powers he thought were a curse aren’t and that the world needs a champion. Especially when that champion is the last person the world’s enemies see coming to help the very people he is supposed to destroy.

Now as Nick works to restore his real world old enemies and new friends will square off for another battle that will either bring him back or end him forever.

This is another book that takes the reader on a ride that will have them never seeing what is coming next. It will also have readers eagerly counting down the days until the next book comes out. This is proving to be one series that doesn’t get old and gets better with each new book that comes out. Reading how Nick gets out of all the trouble he constantly gets into makes for a very fun series that will keep readers laughing at his antics. It is also interesting to see how Nick’s early life it changing and evolving. This one proves to be fun with all the characters being completely different in the alternate reality that has a great deal of humor and blindsides the readers with everything that comes at Nick. It is fun to see Nick approach all that comes at him with his usual humor and smart mouth. This is proving to be a very entertaining series.
