My Selection for Waiting on Wednesday: Invincible-Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Book Two
 Howdy folks. Hope you're having a happy holiday season. For those of you who are not too busy, it's time to check in and see what's good to read. Waiting on Wednesday is the terrific meme started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It's a great opportunity to learn what are the new books coming out that folks are dying to sink their teeth into. This week, I'm interested in Invincible by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Book One
  Invincible is the second book in the Chronicles of Nick series. The first book in the saga, Infinity is the first young adult book by Kenyon and the first time I've ever read a book by the author. I was totally intrigued by the cover and had to read it. Infinity was fairly heavily laden with zombies. I'm not a zombie fan, but they were pretty entertaining and I laughed more than a few times at their antics and the way they were dealt with (see review post 5/24/10). Zombies were only one of the paranormal creatures and the story is pretty engrossing. The series is a kind of prequel of sorts. It tells the tale of the origins of one of Kenyon's significant characters in her other books' (Am I making sense? Lol...).

Let's read Amazon's description of Invincible to see what poor Nick is up against now:

Nick Gautier’s day just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, he survived the zombie attacks, only to wake up and find himself enslaved to a world of shapeshifters and demons out to claim his soul.

His new principal thinks he’s even more of a hoodlum than the last one, his coach is trying to recruit him to things he can’t even mention and the girl he’s not seeing, but is, has secrets that terrify him.

But more than that, he’s being groomed by the darkest of powers and if he doesn’t learn how to raise the dead by the end of the week, he will become one of them...

I'm reading Kenyon's latest adult release right now, No Mercy, which I'll be reviewing and having a giveaway on shortly. Nick makes an appearance in that novel and it wet my appetite to continue his story; plus the first Chronicles of Nick book ended on a juicy cliffhanger. Gotta know what happens next!
Anyone coming along for the ride?

  10. Shadows of a Down East Summer: An Antique Print Mystery
    By Lea Wait
    Publication date: April 1, 2011

    In the summer of 1890, two young women posed for artist Winslow Homer on the coast of Maine. What happened that summer, the secrets the women kept, and the lies they told, changed their families forever. Now, more than a hundred years later, one of their descendants has been murdered, leaving to antique print dealer Maggie Summer the family papers that may finally reveal the truth. Maggie's vision of a relaxing vacation in Maine- antiquing with beau Will Brewer and visiting his Aunt Nettie- turns into a murder investigation. Maggie must discover which of the family myths are based on reality, before someone she cares about becomes the next victim. With the centennial of Homer's death in 2010, there is renewed interest in his work and in the renovation of his studio in Prouts Neck, Maine, where some of the novel's action takes place.

  11. I actually read Infinity and adored everything about it.,Yes, I'm quite looking forward reading the sequal.

  12. The book is great! I can't wait for the next one. If you don't mind it, I'd recommend you read Kenyon's Dark Hunters series. Almost all of the characters in Infinity show up there and some things that might seem weird in Chronicles of Nick are explained in that series. Just a suggestion.
    My WoW is here:

  13. I havent read the first one yet but they look good. Nice pick!
