Instinct by Sherrilyn Kenyon, 351 pages
This is the most current book in the Chronicles of Nick series. Don't try to read these books out of order. Even though I've read them in order, I didn't remember all of the details from the last book and I was a little confused in the beginning. These stories are fairly simplistic and predictable but I like them anyway. They're kind of light reads, despite the subject matter. In this book, Nick, who is the Malachi demon, sees the world start to go wrong almost immediately. For much of the book, no one seems to really have any idea what is happening, just that they seem to be under attack from several fronts. Of course, everyone's survival depends on Nick learning something about his Malachi self, which he can never do easily. Teens who like fantasy and horror stories will probably like the series.
