Instinct (Chronicles of Nick) Reviews
Nick Gautier deals with zombies, demons, vampires, shifters, all sorts of creatures and people every day. Many of those are his friends and allies. Thanks to them, Nick has survived everything that has been thrown his way. Just as Nick begins to hope that his life is finally back to normal, everything goes to hell – literally.Nick has accepted the demon that lives within him. Now he must learn to control it. This is not an easy task while trying to keep a low profile. The dark gods are still after Nick. Now that those dark gods know where to find Nick, they will stop at nothing to get him.**** FOUR STARS! Author Sherrilyn Kenyon’s cast of characters are well developed and seem to become more real with each story. Nick’s character in particular is evolving, growing, and I can see glimpses into what Nick could one day become – and it is fabulous! Some secrets of the Primordial gods are revealed in this installment and readers will learn more about Kody, his mother. These characters are not the only interesting ones in the story either. (Not by a long shot.)It does not matter if you are male or female. I feel that anyone from the ages of teen to adult would love this story. Heck, they would love the entire series. There is very little language, a lot of Nick’s trademark sarcasm, and an ample supply of action. The only real down side (of the entire series) is that each story seems to have cliff hanger endings. It is no wonder to me that this series (and the author’s “Dark-Hunter” series) are soon to be major motion pictures. Tales by Sherrilyn Kenyon are major awesomeness! ****Reviewed by Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews.
All the characters really grow and develop in this book. Especially Nick. It starts out with a good mystery and keeps you hooked and locked into the story. I started and finished this book in one sitting. It was entirely worth the wait, but I don't know how I'll handle waiting for the next one! Unlike the books in the series this one did not have a very set or secure storyline. You honestly did not know what was going to happen. The revelations are mind boggling and for as many questions are answered new ones are asked. Finally with this book I can really feel a sense of wholeness.The cast of characters, many new, each have such rich and fascinating stories. Many betrayals take place, and they are no the ones you would expect. Sherrilyn Kenyon has a true gift with world and character building. I can't wait for the next installment in this series!
This took me a few tries to figure out but overall I enjoyed this book despite the repetitive pithy sayings, the horribly convoluted life lines and how the characters seem to hate and blame each other for the wrong reasons.This starts in school with Caleb getting sick and loosing his powers (odd because demons can not get sick.) The shifters start turning into their animal forms but retain no common sense. They are also visited by a rider on a black horse with scales and plague ridden birdlike men that are covered in blood.The weather is plague-like: a hailstorm with hail the size of baseballs, blood rain, a swarm of mosquitoes the size of bats and later a murder of crows that were resurrected from the dead to take vengeance on Caleb.I think that of all the convoluted history the most important is Nick's mom Cherise is the daughter of a Sephiroth. She is pure of heart and it her inner light attracted Adarian Malachi. That means Nick has the blood of both Malachi and Sephiroth. He will be able to choose to be good or evil. Now that he knows maybe he will learn his Sephiroth powers and hopefully not develop multiple personalities.Next Nick and his older brother are being tested to see which deserves the Malachi powers. Nick Has ti get berries that will cure Caleb and wake his mother.
To be honest I think that this book was a little confusing and off task from the usual series. But that could be because I had read all the books before this one in 5 days so it linked up then waited for this to come out. Also the book did not really show the usual "badassness" that nick has and does not show many/ any new interesting powers that really dragged me in.All in all I still like the series, I read this book in a couple of days and found it pretty magnetic as although there was much too much mind bending plots and not enough new interesting powers there was at least the reliable mass amounts of violence and carnage.My favorite scene was when nick decided to make a bomb with his blood but it didn't really work successfully. Shocking moment of realization right before you get swarmed by monkeys.
As I fine if science fiction fantasy books, I have really enjoyed The Chronicles of Nick. It’s a magical coming of age sort of series with magic, gods, demons, and first love. Nick has a history and a future he is both trying to avoid and unravel with the help of friends, acquaintances, and enemies with each having their own motives. My family has been enjoying this series of books both in audio and now print form. I would recommend this for any family looking for an enjoyable series to read/listen and spend time talk about for many hours.
I find it fascinating to see the world of the Dark Hunters from the eyes of a squire. Lots of action and in depth character that make you feel invested in their outcome. We find out more about the Malachais of the past as well as his generals. It's hard for Nick to know who trust when his mother's life hangs in the balance. He's trying hard not become the evil that he is predicted to become. However, who knows which choice will be the one to tip him over he edge?
