Just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of Nikolas and Company: fun, creative, original, completely insane.

This book, on the outside, seems like a mixture of everything that I love in a book. Fantasy, mythical creatures, futuristic settings, medieval settings, space battles, sword battles, and a huge waffleload of other incredibly awesome things. And, once read, it is realized that it is all these things and so much more. Pure awesome in a cup. With some waffles. Which would make
Great read.I truly enjoyed Nikolas & Company. The character development, world building, and story make a great read. While the author is new, he pays attention to the interests of readers and doesn't just tell a story for the current trends. I would recommend Nikolas & Company to any fan of fantasy. Also, steampunk fans will find some material to make them smile, and fans of science fantasy will feel comfortably at home. I look forward to the next time we can visit Mon.

Nikolas and Company is not quite steampunk, but it will definitely appeal to that crowd. Author Kevin McGill has crafted a truly charming novel that is sure to delight all who read it.

Rather than give a synopsis--because the one on is excellent--I'm going not going to give one here. Good fantasy fiction (or any good fiction for that matter) should take the reader somewhere he's never been and should immerse him in the author's vision. Kevin McGill does it superbly with wonderful setti
I enjoyed the alternate earth/moon world that McGill has created. There are the different monsters that he’s brought to life, as well as the history that he has given to his world. I even was drawn into the future earth and moon colony that he has created as well.
I also liked the characters. I was drawn into seeing how the kids reacted to their new world and their new chance on life. I didn’t always like their choices, but they were the characters choices and they stuck by them. For example I d

*I received this copy from the author but that does not affect my opinion.*

Nikolas is an adventurous 14 year old boy who goes on the adventure of a lifetime with his friends,brother and grandfather. Their mission is to find Huron and help the people but along the way find themselves sidetracked by various events. Nikolas was a likable character as well as his friends. I liked the idea of the book as well but it wasn't what I had expected even though I reviewed the first 100 pages

I read it a while back and *forgot*? to write a review. I enjoyed this story of kids on a wild adventure in a very imaginative world.
Loved it! It was such a fun adventure. I honestly have no idea why it took me so long to finish it. Lol! Great job Kevin!!! :)

He's also the author who launched his book into space ->
