Be careful what you wish for . . . You just might get it. Nick Gautier is tired of his destiny. He doesn't want to be the son of a demon who's fated to end the world. Nor does he want to see another demon or other preternatural creature who wants to kill or enslave him. He just wants to be normal and have normal problems like everyone else. But normality isn't all it's cracked up to be. When he gets sucked into an alternate reality where his mother has married his mentor and his Atlantean god best friend has become a human geek, he begins to understand that no life is free of pain, and that every person has a specific place in the universe . . . Even the son of a hated demon. Most of all, he sees that his powers aren't the curse he thought they were, and that the world needs a champion, especially one its enemies can't imagine rising up to defend the ones he should destroy. Old enemies and new friends square off for a major battle that will either restore Nick to his real world, or end him forever in #1 bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon's fifth novel in The Chronicles of Nick series, Illusion.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The action-packed story moves along quickly, and Graham's narration matches its pace. This chronicle is a great mix of humor and sadness that comes alive though the audio performance. Booklist
“Nick Gautier has abruptly entered a new reality and he’s not happy about it. The young and powerful demon’s son finds himself living in a world of normal people. His friends, family, mentor, and enemies are all present, but they’re all suddenly different. Nick has changed as well and must uncover the root of this upheaval without his powers. Narrator Graham’s voicings are colorful and are well tuned to the particular characters they represent. With deliberation and emphasis, Graham’s raspy voice can turn up the story’s tension several notches in a mere sentence.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“Kenyon‘s writing is brisk, ironic and relentless imaginative. These are not your mother‘s vampire novels.” Boston Globe
“[A] publishing phenomenon…[Sherrilyn Kenyon is] the reigning queen of the wildly successful paranormal scene…Just one example of arguably the most in-demand and prolific authors in America these days.” Publishers Weekly
“Kenyon’s deconstruction and reconstruction of the character of Nick has made this series utterly riveting, and for fans of her interconnected Dark Hunter novels, the alterations to history keep both series fresh and surprising. Kenyon is in a class by herself!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
