Quick Review: Invision by Sherrilyn Kenyon

invisionThis is book 7 in a wildly entertaining series.  Nick is fantastic as always with his wit and charm (he thinks he’s charming).  He can annoy even the most demonic of demons.  I love him. If you haven’t read any of these books, check out my Series You Should Read from last year because you really should read!  It’s one of those books that I can’t help but laugh out loud while reading. It’s funny.  It’s insane.  The situations that Nick and his friends get into are pretty insane.  And as sassy as Nick is he’s not alone in his sassiness.  Caleb, Kody, Acheron, Kyrian can give it right back to him and it’s awesome but no one can compare to my favorite barbecue-toting demon eater Simi.  No one tops Simi in hilarity.

Anyway, Nick has got a glimpse of his possible futures and no matter what he tries to do to stop himself from the fulfilling his destiny of destroying the world,it happens anyways.  So he chooses to drown his sorrows in beignets.  It sounds like a good idea to me too.  When word gets out that his once thought dead friend Zavid might not be dead, it breaks Nick out of his funk.  Nick has many virtues and one is how loyal he is to his friends but of course going after Zavid is not the best plan since he is being held by Noir, one of his many enemies.  Plans to rescue Zavid on hold, when Nick starts to lose his powers. The only way that Malachai can lose his powers is when his sons starts to gain his. Nick doesn’t have a son.  He hasn’t even had sex!  How can he losing his powers!  As the team try to figure out what’s going on.  Battle more demons. Do a little time traveling.  They make it through the day but not without sacrifices.  All of the books are fast paced and action packed.  It literally goes from one crisis to another.  It makes it very hard to stop reading because you are at your train stop and you have to go to work.  Work.  It just gets in the way.  You would think after seven books that it would start to get stale or repetitive but no.  Maybe that’s because they are not particularly long books so there isn’t a lot of filler.  Yet each character has a backstory.  They all have a role to play in the story. Nothing is wasted.  It’s just plain fun. Seriously, you all should read them.

My To-Read List for the next month or so

My to-read pile is going to get a little bit of work out in the next couple of weeks.  Not only is the The Raven King finally coming (just in case you haven’t heard) but several other books I’ve been waiting to read are also coming out. Apparently May 3 is the day to release books with four books on my list. It’s also the time for series to end with The Raven Cycle, The 5th Wave, The Selection, and the Taking series are all coming into their conclusions. It’s strange how so many of my series are ending this year but I guess that’s just the way it worked out.  This is all great but I wish they all were spaced out a little bit. I can only read so much at a time.
