    • A-A-A-U-U-G-G-H-H. Another book that ends in the middle of the story. So many books these days seem to do this. The end isn't really an end. However, in this case, I rather expected it. After all the title does say, Episode 1. I do look forward to reading the upcoming installments. I quite enjoyed this one. It's an interesting blend of fantasy and science fiction with some great twists and turns. There is one at the end that really surprised me, which is always great. But I didn't find this stor [...]


    • A Great Fantasy BookI enjoyed this book. I loved all the characters especially Grand. Each character a very unique personality. The fantasy adventure was fun. There was mythological creatures, science, magic, action and adventure. This was a fun read and I would recommend it to anyone. The first book does leave you hanging but this is a series and it picks up where it leaves off in the second book.


    • You can also find this review at girlinthewoodsreviewsDetailed Review: Apparently all the good parts in the book have already been said up there, so I will talk about how it is good. There's nothing bad to say about this book, so you can guess what rating I'm giving this book. It's creative. I have never seen an author able to piece fantasy AND science fiction so perfectly. No flaws, just perfection. It's just plain genius of the author to think of such a plot. Nobody but him can think that Eart [...]


    • 14-year-old Nick desperately wants to get off Earth (a dystopian/futuristic Earth). His parents are crazy, he sees injustice all around him and he feels drawn toward the moon, as if it’s his real home. Nick tries everything to run away and hop a ride to the moon even though life there is much less comfortable compared to his privileged life on Earth. And then there’s the voice in Nick’s head that keeps repeating the same warning message.Yeri is a driver for the Fungman, Zedock and Josiah S [...]


    • This novella has one foot in science fiction and the other in fantasy. I was reminded a lot of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when I read this. It was kind of crazy with weird creatures and unusual journeys and a weird mission. The character Nick who is the main character is adventuresome, an inventor, a thinker and not likely to follow instructions-any one's! I really liked him because he took charge and did what needed to be done when a leader wasn't clear. There are many characters incl [...]


    • This start to a new series by Kevin McGill is a sci-fi adventure. The story takes place in two settings, Earth and Moon. On Moon you see the merpeople (known as merrows) discussing vague problems and monsters and explaining their grave danger to this one guy Yeri. On Earth, you have this boy inventor Nikolas who is desperate to get off Earth. These two little plotlines then mash together as Nick learns about Moon and other secrets.Honestly, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I wasn [...]


    • This first book in the Nikolas & Company adventures is science fiction/fantasy/adventure, but most important: it's a lot of fun. If you like your books with a lot of set-up, this isn't the one for you. But if you enjoy being plunked down into the middle of a fully developed and detailed magical world, then you should definitely check it out. In addition to the fun premise and the spot-on, action-packed execution, Nikolas and Company features the classic hero-and-his-misfit-friends. A reader [...]


    • I don’t read fantasy books. At all. It’s not my thing. I don’t watch sci-fi/fantasy movies or TV shows. I just don’t get them. I can’t follow them. I don’t even give them a chance. Then, Kevin McGill contacted me and I read the first few chapters of Nikolas & Company: The Merman & the Moon Forgotten. And I was instantly hooked. It’s almost like this book was written as my introduction to the sci-fi/fantasy genre.McGill has an interesting take on the Earth-Moon relationship, [...]


    • This book is so much fun to read, you will be sad when your time with these well thought out characters is over. You want engaging?? You got it! You want fast paced?? You got it! Want great characters and humor on top of that?? You got it! The MERMAN AND THE MOON FORGOTTEN, with its wonderful illustrations by Carlyle McCullough flows easily from one scene to the next, which makes for easy reading. The first two to three chapters are a little confusing, but then the story gets supercalafragalisti [...]


    • This story is awesome!First of all, Kevin does a fabulous job of putting you smack dab in the middle of the story with his wonderful use of setting, and the flow and pacing of his storytelling are spot on. And this story is futuristic, so that's quite a feat to accomplish without sounding like you're just describing a Star Trek episode. And the world Kevin created is filled with creatures of all kinds. My favorite creatures? The humans. I absolutely loved the teens in this story. They're witty, [...]


    • Nothing is what it seems. Merpeople riding carriages and waltzing about on land with automaton legs, cities crying out to their stewards of impending dangers while a dangerous virus hits the countryside where the ill are sent to places for organ harvesting. This is the world where 14 year-old Nick lives and all he wants to do is go back to the moon.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. [...]


    • What a fantastic book - and I use that word in the literal sense! I have to admit, I nearly didn't get past the first couple of chapters, but I'm damn glad I did. It's adventure filled with tons of imagination and action, and one of the most fun things I've read this year. It's a civilization on the moon that features bizarre re-imaginings of mythical creatures, mermaids with steam-powered artificial legs, and cities that talk telepathically. I was hooked, always wanting to know what new wonderf [...]


    • For a first novel, it really blew me away. It deserves the five stars! I thought it reminiscent of Artemis Fowl or The Hunchback Assignments, great YA fantasy, funny, a very unique premise, very well written, great descriptions, and a great band of heros. I think this would also make an awesome graphic novel! I'm eager to read the next segment. I sped-read this first section because it was so engaging.Though I know the author--he helped me out as a teacher with a boy's literacy event (a great ev [...]


    • "Enticing and Amazing" These are the opening reviews my 11 year old son chose to write when asked to create a book jacket summary and review for a school project. Sethie chose his own book and is now hooked on the series. 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!


    • The book is very light and easygoing. The characters are enjoyable and they make a great team!My fav character is Caroline, she seems like she would be a genuine person and how awesome would that be to have a friend who could cook you anything you wanted?My only problem would be the beginning, it was somewhat confusing and I felt a little random? But from what I have read of the book, it's really great! Can't wait to read the rest! So what did I give the preview? 4 stars!


    • A Y/A sci-fantasy novel, Nikolas & Company is the first in a series. The story moved quickky although I was a bit dismayed at the amount of characters involved.I liked the story and will most probably look in to the 2nd story. The author ends the book wih a major cliffhanger in which I actually said to myself, gee I didnt see that coming!


    • A very fun adventure that had a little bit of everything. The best part of this story for me was the interactions between the young characters and the dripping sarcasm that was comically laced through every scene. Another reviewer commented on this story's similarities with the movie "Goonies" and I would have to agree in the best of ways. I look forward to reading more by this author.


    • Once I started reading this 'First Look' I couldn't stop. its Fantasy with a enough grounding in our world to be enjoyable even to those not steeped in the full genre. All it takes is a bit of imagination. Rest assured I'm eagerly awaiting the September release date to see just what happens next.


    • Even though the opening three chapters confused me a bit, I got over it. The first of a series, this is a great, fast-paced, wickedly fantastical story that bubbles with humor and great characters. Totally enjoyed it.


    • This outstanding story premise has great characters and a load of charm. It's one of the best YA novels I've come across. When the full novel comes out and I've read it, I'll do a proper review. I'm anxious to read the rest of it, but I have to wait (sigh) until Kevin releases it in September.


    • Love it! I can't wait for the full book so I can know what's going on! :)You did a great job Kevin! First I was confused as hell but then it all came together and I'm so excited for the finished product. :D





    • Very good world building.I couldn't put it down. I must read the second one. I wonder what Hayley's ( too complicated of a word to spell) is?


    • Kevin Mcgill has a refreshingly fresh perspective in world-building and i enjoyed the depths he took his character development. I enjoyed the dialogue the characters shared as well as the bad guys.



    • From the very beginning, the Reader is presented with a world that promises a great amount of beauty, excitement, and mystery. Classic stagecoaches, Neo-Victorian machinery and decor, and a city of mer-people that manage to feel quite new and different from all other mer-people Authors have populated their stories with. While the writing style itself is not necessarily the world's greatest, I admit that I am captivated by the world of Mon in a way I wasn't quite expecting.Meanwhile, the chapters [...]


    • I read this book over the course of about six weeks. Not because it wasn’t entertaining, but because I was reading a little each week to a child I mentor for Kids Hope USA. It was the perfect adventure for the two of us to get lost in after focusing on class work. The child I mentor — who I will refer to as Nathan because I don’t want to disclose his real name — is in 3rd grade, but his reading skills are much lower. It made me sad to realize that he only really knows about two words fro [...]


    • I believe that Nikolas and Company is an adventurous , funny, and overall entertaining story written by Kevin McGill. When you read this book, you will feel like your in the book yourself as each character goes on an adventure. When the characters are sad, you will feel bad for them, and if the majority of the group is annoyed with Tim as usual, you will understand and feel the same. There are several elements the author uses to keep your attention and make sure your entertained with the story. [...]
