Hey Everyone!! I have a special treat for all the fans of Nick and Sherrilyn Kenyon here! An exclusive Excerpt of the newest instalment of the Chronicles of Nick Series and a great Giveaway°!!


INTENSITY by Sherrilyn Kenyon


It’s a demon-eat-demon world for Nick Gautier. Just when he thinks he’s finally gotten a handle on how not to take over the world and destroy it, Death returns with an all-star cast that is determined to end the Malachai reign and lineage forever. Worse? Death and War have found the one, true enemy Nick can’t find, and even if he did, it’s one he could never bring himself to banish or kill.

Now framed for murders he hasn’t committed, and surrounded by new friends who might be turncoats, Nick is learning fast how his father went down in flames.

The heat in New Orleans is rising fast, and Nick’s threat-level has gone into a whole new level of intensity. He’s learning fast that when War and Death decide to battle, they don’t take prisoners. The don’t negotiate. And they’re both immune to his biting sarcasm and Cajun charm. To win this, he will have to embrace a new set of powers, but one wrong step, and he will belong to the side of Darkness, forever.

Excerpt from Intensity

Nick jumped as his phone rang. Stunned, he glanced to Takeshi, then to Simi and Nashira. “Um . . . anyone have any idea how there’s a cell tower in this dimension?”

Takeshi snorted. “It’s magick.”

“Seriously, bruh? You took it there?”

He shrugged nonchalantly. “You asked. That’s the answer. I have to allow it for all the times Acheron comes to visit. Those Dark-Hunters of yours never leave that poor boy alone.”

Simi made a rude noise. “Ain’t that the truthest? Ring. Ring. Ring. That ole phone ring so much, I swear The Simi hears it even in her sleep.”

Curious about that comment, but needing to take the call, Nick pulled his phone out. “Hey, Ma, sorry I’m—”

“Where are you, Boo?”

Nick winced at her hysterical tone. That was what his mom was most famous for. If he ever got out of her sight, she was like a bloodhound. He was surprised she hadn’t tethered them together on his arrival from her womb.

And while he hated to ever lie to her, telling her he was in an alternate dimension with preternatural beings was just a really bad idea. “I was feeling better, so I went out to grab a bite with friends. Didn’t you see the note I left?”

Something strange was going on in the background. Were those sirens? He wasn’t quite sure.

When his mom spoke again, it was in a low tone that sounded like she had her hand cupped over the mic. “Listen, baby. There’s a situation here. Can you stay away for a while?”

He screwed his face up at the first thought that came to his mind. His mother had gone to dinner with his mentor and best friend, Big Bubba Burdette who owned the local Computer and Gun store. What the heck had lunatic Bubba and Mark gotten her into now with their shenanigans?

His stomach sank to his feet as an even worse thought hit him.

“Ah, Ma! Please tell me you ain’t doing nothing with Bubba. I swear to God, if I come home to a tie on the doorknob I’ll be scarred for life.”

“Oh my Lord, Nicholas Ambrosius! The things that you get in your head, boy! Don’t make me hunt you down to spank you. Seriously! This has nothing to do with Bubba.”

“Then what?”

“The police just came here to arrest you!”

Nick froze as every bit of blood faded from his face. Bad flashbacks went through him. “W-w-what?”

“You heard me! They’re looking for a suspect to all the murders that’s been going on.”

“What’s that got to do with me?”

“Two of the victims were your friends Alan and Tyree!”

    YES! I first met him in the Dark Hunter books so when the spin off series started I automatically started reading them. I’m a book behind now though. They are so pricey, I usually wait till I can grab it when it goes on sale…,then devour it.
