For most kids life is relativity simple, go to school, get good grade and stay out of trouble. For Nick Gautier he wishes life was that simple.  For Nick has a destiny that he doesn’t completely understand with powers he can’t completely control.  Right now his main concern is staying alive when everyone including his own father is out to kill him.

He has learned to raise the dead and annihilate zombies.  He has also learned clairvoyance and divination.  Those things have proven easier than learning to drive and keep his girlfriend.  Though the most important skill he still needs to learn and master is survival. 

Now in order to survive his next lesson makes the others pale in comparison.  He will prove to either be the greatest hero mankind has ever had or the one person that will end up ending the world.  With his enemies gathering forces he is going to have to use every part of himself to makes sure he doesn’t lose everyone he loves, including himself.

This is the next book in a series that is proving to be a lot of fun to read and provides a lot of action and adventure.  The characters are making this a great series that is sure to please readers.  While the books seem to be lengthy when reading they prove to be a remarkable fast read.  This one proves to be as hard to put down as the first books in this series.  Watching Nick grow up and learn about his powers makes for a fascinating read and will have readers laughing at his antics as he learns each new skill necessary to survive all the enemies coming for him.  This one will have reader eagerly reaching for the next book in the series just to see what will happen to Nick next. 

I give this one 5 red roses
