Inferno is very aptly named, because everything in Nick's life is heating up. There was so much going on in this book, and Kenyon did a great job of progressing the story as well as opening it up for further installments.
Nick is trying not to turn evil, but when something is suddenly "haunting" him it becomes harder and harder for him not to use his Malachai powers. Plus, with the bomb that was dropped on him at the end of the previous book his world has turned upside down and he isn't sure who to trust. If that isn't hard enough he still has to deal with normal high school things, and a new stage five clinger Casey.
I have really enjoyed this series, and I can't wait to see where Kenyon takes it next. It is interesting to see a contrast between this and her adult series about the Dark Hunters. I am a huge fan of Nick and I love his witty comments. He is strong and capable, he just needs to believe he is.
There are so many different ways this series can go, and I enjoy making predictions only to find out I was wrong all along. It definitely doesn't always end up the way you think it will. Kenyon has done a great job of ending each book leaving the reader salivating for the next one. I am VERY intrigued by this ending.
Any YA fan will enjoy this series, and adult fans of Kenyon will enjoy it too.
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?
