Nikolas and Company is fantasy adventure meets Goonies Perfect for
readers between 10 and 16. "A long time ago in a world not so far
away..." Senior stagecoach driver, Yeri Willrow, leads a group of
mysterious passengers through one of the most fog-ridden night of
his prestigious career. What he thought would be a simple drive and
drop quickly turns into an attack by foul-breath, red-eyed
creatures. Yeri learns that his mysterious passengers are a family
of automaton-legged merfolk, and he is their only hope from the
creature most foul. "Sometime in the near future..."
Fourteen-year-old Nick lives in a time when one can zip from
country to country in mach-speed hovercars, extend their life
indefinitely through cerebral downloads, and have every whim taken
care of by their ever faithful nannydrone. Nick hates it. Aside
from the refugee camps, overpopulation, and unchecked consumerism
filling every city across the globe, Nick just doesn't belong. That
is when he hears the voice of a woman: "The Rones lie about their
true intent. They enter the city of Huron at the peril of us all."
Shortly after, his slightly crazed grandfather reveals to him: "All
you've ever heard about the Moon is a lie, my dear Nikolas. He was
not always a mere satellite, a ghost wandering the stars. In an age
before our own, Moon was our twin, and in him bore the whole of
magical life. The cradle of this magical civilization was a
fantastic metropolis filled with fire-breathing winged lions,
volcano-born nymphs, automaton-legged mermaids, and so much magic
you could smell it. We called this city Huron, and you, Nikolas,
are her steward." __________________________________________ What
kids and adults are saying about the Nikolas and Co series Pure
awesome in a cup. With some waffles. Which would make it a waffle
load. - Austin 14 My boys 11 and 14 both really enjoyed the story
and only complained that book 2 wasn't out yet so they couldn't
keep reading. - Fred Chambers I have to admit, before I could
snuggle up under my blankies with this fantastical book, my son
beat me to it. He read it in a single day and raved. - Elizabeth
Mueller Review from my 13-year old daughter: "This was an
imaginative, well-written novel similar to the Hitchhiker's Guide
books and was a pleasure to read. The author did a good job and
hopefully has more in store." Sara Grace Nikolas and company is the
best book I've ever read. It was full of surprises that kept me on
the edge, it also full of awkward moments that made me laugh. -
J-Man Kevin has created a fun, unique fantasy world full of magic
and adventure. The story gets off to a fast start and sucks you in.
- Micah Lewis great YA fantasy, funny, a very unique premise, very
well written, great descriptions, and a great band of heroes. -
Julie Johnson once I immersed myself in the stories characters and
settings I couldn't put it down. I found myself in a swashbuckling
adventure with danger around every corner. Pam Torres It's great
for anyone that loves fantasy, science fiction, it's clean with
just the slightest hint of boys and girls taking a notice of each
other. Heather I was thoroughly tickled to visit Kevin's fantasy
world. His writing style is awesome too. He pulled me in and never
let me go until I sadly finished the story. - Robyn Campbell What a
fantastic book - and I use that word in the literal sense Matt
Keland I don't read fantasy books. At all. It's not my thing. I was
instantly hooked. It's almost like this book was written as my
introduction to the sci-fi/fantasy genre. Richard This is a really
enjoyable fantasy story, its fast paced, action packed, and funny -
Garrett Eubanks I was caught up in the story and couldn't wait to
read what happened next. Merrows, Scuccas, Jynn'us - It feels like
this book only scratches the surface of a carefully crafted
universe from a capable and talented fantasy author. - Rob Momary
