Infamous is the third book in the Chronicles of Nick YA series written by Sherrilyn Kenyon. After reading the second novel, Invincible, I decided that I couldn’t possibly wait for this next installment to come on sale or be published in a paperback format. That is usually one of the true tests for a series. As a voracious and speedy reader, I tend to try to stretch my book budget as far as possible. This year’s Cannonball Read #4 challenge has made me throw caution to the wind on more than one occasion and just indulge!
Infamous begins as grippingly as Invincible ended. Nick Gautier has just discovered that the man he thought was his uncle offering advice is actually his future self trying to undo a terrible reality that brings on the world’s destruction. Nick now knows that his father is not just a criminal, but a ferocious demon who choses to live in prison to feed off the evil energy that pools in such places. Talk about a heavy burden to bear at 14! Is the future set in stone no matter what? Will those closest to him still protect him or bring about his destruction once they learn the truth. Can he trust his own advice from the future or is he embarking on a new path because of the brave choices he continues to make?
I am catching up this week for books I read while I was recovering. The full review can be read on my bookhoarding dragon blog.
