About this title

Synopsis:

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
