Inferno: Chronicles of Nick

Inferno - Sherrilyn Kenyon Check out Scott Reads It! for reviews, giveaways, & more! Thank you to St. Martin's Griffin for an ARC in exchange for a honest review of this book. There's just something so special about The Chronicles of Nick series that keeps me coming back for more. The 4th installment in the series is an extremely promising installment to the series and delivers all of the humor and fun readers have learned to expect from Kenyon. I have no idea how long Kenyon expects this series, given the fact that her The Dark Hunter series is more than 20 books strong and it doesn't appear to be ending soon. I'd be happy to read a few more installments in this series, but it looks like Illusion is the last book based on that ominous description. Inferno is still a lot of fun, despite that it's a bit dark and more gritty than the past 3 CoN novels. I really don't mind the slight change in tone because Inferno is a wonderful novel. The way Kenyon juxtaposes the future and the present in this novel is executed perfectly. This just might be the best book in the Chronicles Of Nick series yet! I'm really impressed with the direction Kenyon is taking this series and I'm hoping Kenyon maintains the same quality in her future novels.One of the most incredible things to me is how much her characters have evolved since book #1. Every character has developed in so many ways and no one has remained indifferent to the strange, paranormal world. Even after 4 books, the characters are as interesting as ever and they still feel extremely fresh. I have a feeling that I'm not going to get tired of these characters anytime soon and I just hope these characters remain being their likeable selfs.Inferno is a fast-paced thrilling read that I devoured immediately. The Dark Hunter mythology worked extremely well in this novel and it's even interesting to me, despite the fact that I've never read a Dark Hunter novel. I haven't read any of Sherrilyn Kenyon's adult novels, but I have a feeling that reading them will help add another layer of enjoyment to the CoN novels. SK's Dark Hunter series has so many novels already out, but I'm up to reading them all. I am really looking forward to reading more from Kenyon and I hope her other novels are as entertaining as Inferno was.
