One boy . . . Many demons.

Think there’s a lot of pressure on your shoulders? Nick Gautier was born to bring about the end of the world . . . it’s not easy being the heir of a demon overlord.

But Nick is determined to thwart his destiny and get into a good college. To be more than his genetics and prophecy foretell. No one is ever going to tell this stubborn Cajun who and what he really is. Or how to live his life.

Not even the Fates of the Universe. But now that he and his team of ancient gods and demons have claimed the Eye of Ananke and he sees the missteps of the future, he has to battle the demons within that are far deadlier and more treacherous than any he’s battled before. All the...

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...

when is the invision book out

john, August 20, 2016

    It's out already.

    Carl, MB Staff, August 22, 2016

i love these books but im so confused! i came up with a bit of a family tree for nick after going back and comparing the , not facts, but maybe staements? tiamet and chronus had jaden? jaden had zevikan and caleb? zevikan had jared? jared had cherise? cherise had nick. that last one is the only one im sure of.im glad she finally told how jaden and jared were related, all this time i thought they had to be either father and son or brothers, grandad and grandson works out great. another thing that im confused about, are all six primal gods brothers and sisters because if jaden and appolymi are brother and sister, wouldnt that make nick and acheron distant relatives?

tammy, August 9, 2016

    Tia and C aren't "people." They are elements (much like the primals themselves). Order and Chaos. So the six primals came from Order and Chaos, but aren't "born" from them like children, even though Tia would consider them her "children" per se. So while the primals call themselves brothers and sisters, they didn't have traditional births or childhoods the way a human baby would. You can't apply human law to what they are. So while they are born of Order and Chaos, and consider them their parents, it's not the same as a human child referring to their parents who had them and raised them. That being said, Jaden is the father of Xev. Xev is the father of Jared and Jared of Cherise. And Nick and Ash are related, but that's through Apollymi and is very, very, very distant as there have been hundreds of Malachai through the centuries.

When will the paperback version be released??

Windi, July 26, 2016

    The paperbacks usually come out a year after the hardcovers.

    Carl, MB Staff, July 27, 2016

I dont understand, If Kody is Nick chosen one, why in the future he has another wife?

shuly, July 16, 2016

    No one has said anything about his future spouse. The future isn't set. That's what they're fighting for. To stop the end of the world and to keep the ones Nick loves in his life.

    Carl, MB Staff, July 16, 2016

Love these books and the Dark Hunter series! I can't stop reading them!

Terrie Lawson, June 21, 2016

I love your series Chronicles Of Nick and I can't wait until the 8th book comes out next year!

Pearce, June 19, 2016

If Cyprian really defeated Nick then why come back in time

Edward, June 9, 2016

    Time is in flux. The future isn't set. If Ambrose and Kody go back when they weren't there originally, he has to stop them from altering the future or he won't succeed either.

    Carl, MB Staff, June 10, 2016

I have a question. In Invision, it says that the only thing that can kill the Malachai is his own son. But in Son of No One it says that Cadegan could kill the Malachai. Which one is true?

Lucy, June 8, 2016

    Everything has a predator. SONO doesn't say it would be easy, but yes Cadegan "could" in theory, but that doesn't mean that he'd be able to kill one or Nick. Mankind can kill a tiger, but can could a single teenager do it with their bare hands? Probably not. So it depends on who is speaking, and the circumstances involved. Technically, several beings are capable of it, but it doesn't mean they actually could if they went up against a Malachai. The only thing that can and does kill one consistently is his heir whenever he has one who inherits his powers and even that child has to first weaken the Malachai, otherwise he couldn't do it either and not every child or son of a Malachai is able to kill him. There are cases in the past of a Malachai killing his child and/or heir. The books are like real life. You have to put the statements in their context, not pull them out and make them a solid, literal law that applies in all circumstances, all the time. Sherri has always said to watch for loopholes and she carefully puts them in the series.

Love your books, getting Invision on my payday. Can't wait

Joshua, June 5, 2016

Re-read the whole series so that everything was fresh for the new release and Invision was AWESOME. I was like OMGOMGOMG. But can I suggest a family tree on the website that shows the relations revealed in each successive book. Keeping track of who is related to who and how is like tracking relatives in a southern family.

MEME, June 3, 2016

    The problem is most of the characters are not related to each other at all. So a family tree for Dark-Hunter is basically useless. Or each one would only have five members or less. It would be more confusing than helpful. Imagine a family tree of everyone in a high school of 1500 people. That's what the family tree would be like. A bunch of random, unrelated families.
