(Chronicles of Nick Series, #4)
by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Narrated by Holter Graham
The heat is on, and a new threat to humanity has risen . . .
Nick has his driver's license and he's not afraid to use it. But turning sixteen isn't what he thought it would be. While other boys his age are worried about prom dates and applying for college, Nick is neck deep in enemies out to stop him from living another day. No longer sure if he can trust anyone, his only ally seems to be the one person he's been told will ultimately kill him.
But life spent serving the undead is anything except ordinary. And those out to get him have summoned an ancient force so powerful even the gods fear it. As Nick learns to command and control the elements, the one he must master in order to combat his latest foe is the one most likely to destroy him. As the old proverb goes, fire knows nothing of mercy, and if Nick is to survive this latest round, he will have to sacrifice a part of himself. However, the best sacrifice is seldom the sanest move. Sometimes it's the one that leaves your enemies confused.
And sometimes, you have to trust your enemy to save your friends. But what do you do when that enemy is you?

This continues to be a great series and one that is entertaining and enjoyable to read/listen to. While I liked it when authors write their series to be read as standalone, this one has become one where the character are too intricately woven together that picking it up in book #4 can be confusing. If you're interested in reading Inferno, start with book #1, "Infinity (Chronicles of Nick, #1)". It's so worth it as this series rocks.
"Inferno" move the plot/arc of the series forward with a few twists and turns. This was also the first book in which I had that "Oh, gods, this is a YA" due to the angst of teenage relationship. Thankfully, while the 'relationship' issue is part of the storyline, I am eternally grateful Sherrilyn didn't go down that YA rabbit hole. It doesn't become an issue.
This installment was a bit slow in the action department in the beginning and middle, it does pick up later. However, the stuff that occurs are all part of the story.
I really enjoy this series due to the characters and story line. Nick continues to struggle to gain control of his powers and the knowledge that his destiny is to be this big bad evil demon. His friends continue to believe in him and help in any and all ways they can.
Narrator's Review: Holter Graham continues to be phenomenal. He brings the characters to life! I'm extremely happy that the continues to be the narrator!
