Just when he thought things couldn’t get any worse... 
Nick Gautier’s day just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, he survived the zombie attacks, only to wake up and find himself enslaved to a world of shapeshifters and demons out to claim his soul. 
His new principal thinks he’s even more of a hoodlum than the last one, his coach is trying to recruit him to things he can’t even mention and the girl he’s not seeing, but is, has secrets that terrify him. 
But more than that, he’s being groomed by the darkest of powers and if he doesn’t learn how to raise the dead by the end of the week, he will become one of them...

My Take:

What the worst that can happen after you take down some zombies that tried to make you their next meal, easy you prey for your life. For Nick getting used to his powers is hard, he doesn't know who to trust and when the most popular girl at school is now noticing him it throws him. Why would Nick get all this attention today and not the day before, simple he is now on the football team. With his being fired from her job and Nick getting a handle on being noticed its a lot to take in especially when his mom's new place has all kinds of weird patrons working there as well. With his ability he is able to see past the human shell and see what the person is. Nothing is scarier than finding out your boss also has powers and fangs right? Wrong!!!! This is just one week in Nick's shoes and already his life is getting more and more complicated especially when his coach starts blackmailing him as well. Going never felt so dreadful and with the threat of being suspended or worse sent to jail, Nick must master his powers and get a hold on what his life is because when the pushing gets tough who do you trust to help you push right back.

Being inside young Nick's head was awesome because reading all of those Dark-Hunter novels pretty much told me Nick's young life wasn't at all easy. So with the threat of the school and his team mates Nick does what he knows best he tries to save the day. Even though everyone thinks he could end the world nobody thinks that with time and some control Nick can come out and be the savior of the world and not the destroyer. I have my fate in him, I fell like I on this roller coaster ride with him and since I believe in him the ending result won't be the one ending everyone thinks is coming. Plus the 3rd book comes out soon and with 2012 just starting who knows what can happen in either universe.

5/5 stars
