Overview

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author S.L. Jennings
We met Nikolai in The Dark Prince (Dark Light #2). Now learn his story...

Two centuries ago, I clawed my way into a world of immorality, filth and destruction. A world seething with secrets and lies, both mortal and immortal.

Complete and utter Darkness.

I know we're supposed to be inherently evil, but something inside me refuses to fully believe our legends. Something that calls out for more...calls out for her.

But there are rules. Rules that control the balance of nature. And if broken, it could destroy everything I've ever known. It could destroy me.

I am Nikolai Skotos, son of Stavros and Delia, and brother of Dorian, the heir of the Dark throne. I am one of the most powerful Dark forces to have ever walked this earth.

And I once was lost.
Now, I'm about to give it all up for the girl that found me.

*Recommended for mature readers only due to scorching hot sex scenes, explicit violence & Niko's deliciously naughty potty mouth.

Waiting for the next Light/Dark book is torture so seeing that Nikolai's book (novella) came out was SIGH, AWESOME! I love Nikolai & was really looking forward to seeing what's going on with him. However, though the book was good & SHORT. It takes place before the other books, so be prepared to read a "prequel" to what will no doubt eventually be Nikolai's story (which we will, I'm sure get in one form or another from Jennings in the future). This SHORT story of love & heart ache gives you his back story and insight as to why we meet a single & surprisingly tolerant (to his brother's love life) Nikolai. So if you love Nikolai's character and want to know why he is so darn sexy, and likable take a gander into this SHORT book.

NIKOLAI WILL BREAK YOUR HEART & LEAVE YOU DESPERATE FOR MORE! I very rarely give out 5 stars ratings - especially for a novella. HOWEVER, Nikolai is special. As is S.L. Jenning’s writing. The depth of emotion expressed in this short read went beyond words to me. Personally, I loved Niko – to me – he is an anti-hero. Kind of like Mel Gibson's character Porter in the movie Payback. Haven't seen it? You should check it out then. Anyway, I digress. Nikolia is a prequel to the Dark Light Series. If you haven’t read them – get on it! Totally worth your time and money. It tells us more about Niko – we met him in The Dark Prince. This is Nikolia BA (Before Amelie) - “Humans are weak. You tell them to stay away. You tell them not to touch the flame because it will burn. Yet they still come to sate their licentious needs, getting off on the forbidden fruit dangled in front of their dumbstruck faces. They know it’s wrong; they know that bright red apple is rotten to the core, festered with maggots and disease. But they want it. And I give it to them. I’d be a fool not to. F*cking humans.”– Nikolai This Nikolia AA (After Amelie) - “I want to erase all the confusion and anger that has haunted me my entire life. Never good enough…always the black sheep. I need to find a substitute for the turmoil brewing inside my hollow chest, bubbling over until it feel like acid singing my throat. I wan to end it all and forget what I am. WHO I am.”- Nikolai Niko knows from the moment he lays eyes on this “girl” he knows she is different. He know that she will change his life. He knows that she SEES him – the good, bad, ugly, selfish, killer, lover – he is all those things and she knows each and every single one intimately – much to his surprise. Usually, I put the my fave blurbs before the review. In this case, those two blurbs are critical because they how the metamorphosis of Nikolia. Those statements are very clear indications of where his head and his heart are at that moment. Clear indication of who he is! S.L. Jennings has a way of pulling emotion out of you. Every single time she makes me FEEL. Whether she’s writing in the contemporary new adult genre or the paranormal. Nikolai will make you want to go back and re-read the Dark Light Series. Nikolai will make you want more and we will be getting more when Book #3 is released. Unfortunately, she’s keeping that date under her hat for now. Don’t worry people, I nag, I mean, gently attempt to persuade her every day to give up the goods. Dive in and get a taste of Niko – he just might ruin you too.

I'm usually not a huge fan of novella's but OMG! Niko's story is the perfect addition to The Dark Light series. It's got a totally different vibe because well, IT'S NIKO! We actually learn the nature of his business and delve deeper into the reasons why he is how he is in the present. There's so much to love about him & my heart broke for him even though I thought it impossible when I first started reading. But what's not to love about ANYBODY that puts Aurora in her place ¿ - Amelie was my dream. She was my life. My love. My reason to breathe.

He may be the younger brother, the younger Prince, the lesser of the sons in his father's eyes, but Nikolai is completely his own man. Smoldering HOT, passionate in his indulgences, his killing and in his need to prove himself to his father. That is until the moment SHE was thrown at his feet, trembling and oh so beautiful. That moment just may have changed him forever and not necessarily for the better. Read Nikolai, a companion novella to the Dark Light Series to see how one very ordinary woman can bring Light to one very Dark Prince.

Having read the Dark Light series I always wanted to know more about Nikolai since he makes a brief appearance, but leaves an impression and you wanting more. While this is short novel it answers a lot of questions and it was awesome to read more about the dark side!
