Nikolas and Company Book #1: The Merman and...
****Featured on Wattpad and @Fantasy ***
In the near future the world is coming to an end. What's fourteen-year-old Nick and his friends to do? Escape through time to a fantastic moon populated fire-breathing winged lions and automaton-legged Merfolk, of course.
When Nick finds wealthy shoppers stepping over the body of his dying refugee friend, Jermaine, on the way to their next shoe sale, he decides that it's time to leave Earth, and his friends are going with him. Nick's grandfather, Grand, offers a way to realize this dream by taking him to the moon, but there's a catch. Grand's moon is in the past; it's teeming with magical creatures, and its merfolk believe Nick will save them from the thousand-eyed monsters haunting their fortresses.
To save his friends, Nick must choose the better world: An Earth plagued with genetic viruses and malicious nannydrones, or a moon inhabited by blood thirsty gorgons, man-eating pirate ships, and fire-breathing winged lions. The future or the fantastic? Their lives are in Nick's hands.
Pure awesome in a cup. With some waffles. Which would make it a waffle load. - Austin 14
"As an adult, I love this series, the characters, the plot twists. I haven't enjoyed a fantasy series this much since I read Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. I've already added you my list of favorite authors." - Reehya Bagwandin
"As a constant video/computer gamer, it is phenomenal to see my eleven-year-old 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." - 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
