“Peace had always struck Nick as something that would be soft like a summer breeze, but instead, it hit Nick like a hurricane and made the backs of his eyes sting. He had grown so used to anguish that he felt the peace might kill him.”
Nicholas Theodoulos is an immortal savior in desperate need of saving. All the power, wisdom, and even the favor of the gods is not enough when 1,700 years of heartache have left marks on his soul. But Noory Abramson, a streetwise woman with a sacred tattoo and a touch of grace, steps from the shadows, not knowing if she’s arrived in time to save him or end him for good. With a heart grown as heavy as his, either fate might do.
When Noory observes Nick grieving over the body of a young girl in a deserted Atlanta alley, she isn’t sure whether he is friend or foe. However, she quickly realizes his special powers to rescue children and rain down vengeance on those that harm them may be the only thing that can help her when one of her charges, sixteen-year-old Grace, goes missing from the local homeless shelter. Soon, Nick discovers Noory has secrets of her own: one that might lead him to redemption, and possibly love, for the first time in his painful existence.
In their world, a gift looks a lot like a curse, and Noory must reach Nick before his gift consumes him.
Praise for Nicholas Eternal
“…courageous and audacious…the diverse cast of characters—which includes a demon named Damascus and Father Roy, the spirit of a priest whose work on Earth is unfinished—will impress fans of paranormal fantasy sagas such as Kim Harrison’s Hollows series, as the potential for future storylines seems virtually limitless. Serious issues are explored with insight and sensitivity, including alcoholism, houselessness, and child advocacy. Still, the overall tone of the story maintains a welcome witty and lighthearted edge; at one point, for instance, Noory describes the plot as ‘antichrist crazy shit!’.”
“A well written novel with characters that come to life with internal struggle, ancient powers, and a touch of noir.”
author of The Keeper Chronicles
“This roller coaster ride of a story is beyond captivating. It’s the most heartfelt tale I have ever read and absolutely brilliant.”
author of Shadow Runner
“A sacred tattoo… a painful existence and the nodes of fate… NICHOLAS ETERNAL is a mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night story of sacrifice, survival, and just how beautiful a broken heart can be. A must-read urban fantasy from author Kim Conrey!”
award-winning author of Praesidium (Shadows in the Wind, Book One)
“Fresh, original, and thoroughly compelling in the process of transcending definitions of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, or anything in-between. It crafts satisfying twists and turns, possibilities readers might not see coming, and confrontations that test the boundaries of good and evil intentions.
These issues will especially attract book club readers looking for stories that promise lively debates and discussions about good, evil, love, and underlying forces affecting choice.”
