PERFECT FOR AGES 8 TO 14

Nikolas will hear the call of a mysterious woman, battle evil drones, fly malfunctioning hover trucks, run from other-worldly monsters, witness the blue and yellow fire of blood-thirsty water dragons, and travel through space and time, as he seeks to save the Merfolk of the Eynclaene coast.

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

"Enticing and Amazing"... These are the opening reviews my 11 year old son. As a constant video/computer gamer, it is phenomenal to see him immersed in these books. He loves this series so much that he's been sharing his books with other boys in his class and asked the school librarian to carry it. Highly recommended by this family! - Gemmavive

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. 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 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. - Rob Momary

Meet the Author

Kevin knew he liked this writing gig when 3rd grade classmates paid him two bucks for every story he wrote. Unbeknownst to him, the students turned in the stories as homework assigments (If Kevin had known, he would have charged double). His literary operations were exposed because the monkey scribble was undeniably Kevin's handwriting. Unless, it actually was monkey scribble. Kevin was cast into detention. But, being the industrious boy that he was, detention served as a place only to imagine more fantastic worlds. Today, his wife graciously listens as he reads wild stories about foul monsters, fire-breathing winged lions, and the mysterious voice of Huron city, which speaks only to its 14yr old steward, Nikolas Lyons. Kevin now welcomes you into his world.
