InvisioneBook - 2016
Think you have a lot of pressure on your shoulders? Nick Gautier was born to bring about the end of the world . . . it's not easy being the heir of a demon overlord.
But Nick is determined to thwart his destiny and get into a good college. To be more than his genetics and prophecy foretell. No one is ever going to tell this stubborn Cajun who and what he really is. Or how to live his life.
Not even the Fates of the Universe. But now that he and his team of ancient gods and demons have claimed the Eye of Ananke and he sees the missteps of the future, he has to battle the demons within that are far deadlier and more treacherous than any he's battled before. All the while his arch nemesis is back and determined to reclaim his place as the harbinger for Armageddon. Even if it means killing Nick and barbecuing everyone he loves to do so.

Nick ~ We manifest our own fears
Kyrian (about the Iliad) ~ "Life is always about choices. Sometimes we make them for selfish reasons. Sometimes we make them for others. Sometimes we run from them & sometimes they're forced on us against our will....."
Simi ~ " For shame on you akri-Calab! You a mean demon boy! You off the Simi Christmas list for that! No oven mitt for you!"
~ Beware the seeds that are planted, even in the most fallow of fields. For those we lay with callous hands, might very well prove to be those of our ultimate destruction"
Caleb - "Reminders to use restraint & good judgement in all things For whatever you plant today, you will ultimately reap tomorrow."
Julian ~ "If it makes you feel better, Highness, I threw up in battle my first time, too. I even pissed myself, and I was Spartan born & trained. Don't let the others get to you. You showed a lot of courage on the field today, & stood your ground at times when I've seen far more experienced soldiers fall or worse, turn & flee."
~ "Does it get easier?"
Julian ~ "Yes. But the day you can walk into battle & coldly take the life of another without feeling anything for that man & the future you've just robbed him of is the day you should dread most, not one to be anticipated. What we do, while necessary, is an evil. And it is a course that should never be taken lightly or served with glee. Rather, one always walked with reverence & full knowledge of the cost to every soul it touches. For the one truth of all fights, no matter how small, is that everyone walks away forever mired by it and with bloody hands."
~ How could you ever stand & lead a kingdom if you aren't man enough to see your decision through? Good or bad, once you decide, the consequences will always be yours, alone, to live with. So think through all outcomes, son. And make sure you understand the course it will force you to walk, & that you're willing to make that journey & see it through to the end. Good, and especially bad.
Nick ~ “Okay,” he said slowly as his ulcer came back with friends. “To certain death, dismemberment, and undignified screams, let us march!”
Acheron ~ “Every great legend begins with that one person who raises an angry fist to the sky and flips off the gods in defiance."
"Our memories are always faulty. They're tainted by our emotions and perceptions. We filter everything we take in by our experiences. I mean, you said yourself a few minutes ago. Did I say what you thought I did or did you hear what you wanted me to say? It doesn't make me a liar or you a fool. It's just human nature. People see what they want to see and they hear what they want to hear." - Jared
