Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him.
He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so dang hard? But that isn’t the primary skill he has to master. Survival is.
And in order to survive, his next lesson makes all the others pale in comparison. He is on the brink of becoming either the greatest hero mankind has ever known.
Or he’ll be the one who ends the world. With enemies new and old gathering forces, he will have to call on every part of himself to fight or he’ll lose everyone he cares about.
*SPOILERS AHEAD, JUST SAYING.*
Sadly, I didn’t take as many notes as I had hoped, so it’s going to be a little short.

According to the book, Nick has met Death and Pestilence.
I’m predicting that the book will have something to do with the Apocalypse because why introduce 2/4 horsemen of the Apocalypse if it’s not about that?
Though, I do have a tendency to have false predictions.
Also, what’s with all these characters having hidden motives!??!?!?!?
Caleb had some hidden motives during the second book Invincible (click here for book review of Invincible) and now Nekoda is said to be plotting Nick’s death.
It’s like you start believing one thing and then BAM! Nope, she’s really against Nick and doesn’t love him at all despite all of her POV’s saying that she does love him.
However, I really liked how Kenyon incorporated mythology into this, Atlantean mythology, but mythology nevertheless.
I’m so glad, too, because I LOVE BOOKS ABOUT MYTHOLOGY (ex. Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus, the Kane Chronicles, Everneath, etc…)
IT WAS SO NICE TO FIND OUT THAT ASH AND CALEB WERE “ALIKE” BECAUSE THEY’RE DEMIGODS.
One part that really had me in tears of laughter was the part where Nick got arrested and Caleb needed to get arrested too because he needs to protect him, the line from the book:
” His gaze went to Caleb. “Kicking a police car? Really?”
Caleb shrugged. “Car offended me. It was sitting right where I wanted to stand. What would you do?” ”
That was sooooooooooooo hilarious!
Though I thought it was really sad whenever they talked about Brynna and Nick’s almost suicide and Nick’s not-really rape and theft.
It actually sent a really good message.
This was such a great book! I’m definitely looking forward to getting Inferno, (#4) in the mail!
