Invincible by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Nick Gautier is no ordinary teen, as readers find out in both the first book (Infinity) of the Chronicles of Nick and the second (Invincible). Still unable to raise the dead, Nick has to divide his attention between school, divination lessons, and survival. His new principle wants him out of the school and is looking for any means to do so. His new coach has him doing things that are under no circumstances legal and are bound to lead to more trouble for Nick. As the plot thickens Nick has to choose who to trust and how to raise the dead, because without either Nick won't live to see another day.

This second book in the Chronicles of Nick is a wonderful continuation of of the first book Infinity. Picking up where the first book left off, readers will learn more about Nick and his life in New Orleans. As Nick continues to learn his powers and discovering the completely new world around him, he also learns that things aren't always what they seem and that he shouldn't put his trust in anyone whole heartedly.

Invincible is just as quick paced as other Sherrilyn Kenyon books and is just as enjoyable. Nick is a relateable character with his teenage angst and sarcasm. You can see his love for his mom and his pain and suffering from a life below the poverty line. Even with his past, Nick is willing to do what it takes to take care of his mom and those he loves. If that means facing some of the darkest evil to exist in the world, then he will; even if it means dying.
