Publisher's Summary

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.

We have now entered the Twilight Zone.

I wasn't sure I was going to like this book very much after the ending of the last book, so it took me awhile to listen to this book. I'm glad I did, Illusion was much better than I had anticipated. I think I'm starting to get a better picture of how SK is going to bring about combining the Dark Hunter series to the CON series in the future. I have my theories after this book. I'm also warming up to Kody, I haven't overly liked her in the previous stories. There are also some cool new characters that I'm excited about and hope they end up with their own book, preferably an adult genre instead of a YA genre. My favorite line form this book is "There is a reason why there is only a stairway to heaven when there is an entire highway to hell." Narrator is awesome as usual.

Can't wait for the next one!

If you could sum up Illusion in three words, what would they be?

Excellent, funny, fabulous


What did you like best about this story?

I was thinking that this story would be the final one to bridge the gap between these books and the adult series. But Sherrilyn took me in a different direction with this one - unexpected. Actually, I enjoy all the Chronicles of Nick series of books - but by far - this was my favorite...maybe because I am connecting characters, but nicely done Sherrilyn Kenyon. Ok, when is the next book coming out??


What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

Love his voice :)I also enjoy the variations in voices to distinguish characters. He has spoiled me against other narrators that cannot achieve that distinction.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me laugh. I felt on the edge of my seat to see how all this [the storylines] are connected. However, when I reached the end and left me with a cliffhanger...my mouth dropped open - "How could you?! I want to know what happens next!" lol


Any additional comments?

Waiting with baited breathe for the next book.
