About the Book

Original Publication Date: March 13, 2012

Paperback Publication Date: April 09, 2013

The world has fallen in love with Nick Gautier and the Dark-Hunters. Now Nick’s saga continues in the next eagerly anticipated volume…

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 such a difficulty? 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.

The Hero: Nick (CON)

My name is Nick Gautier and this is the story of my life. First off, get the name right. It's pronounced Go-shay not Go-tee-ay or Goat-chay (that has an extra H in it and as my mom says we're so poor we couldn't afford the extra letter). I'm not some fancy French fashion designer. I'm just a regular kid... well as regular as someone with a stripper for a mother and a career felon for a father can be. But as my mom so often says friends are...

The Story Behind The Story

This book is a little darker than the previous two as Nick is sucked into some darker elements. It also deals with the very real world of cyber bullying and how it affects everyone, not just the target and not just the person doing it, as well as the serious repercussions of it. While the internet is a great place, it can also be a dangerous one. Nick has grown a lot and this book springs a few surprises and goes deeper into Nick's relationship with Ambrose and his father.

I can't wait to dig into volume 4 where we turn up the heat, hence the name Inferno. I have big things planned and am dying to see what happens.
