Overview

The world has fallen in love with Nick Gautier and the Dark-Hunters.

Now Nick’s saga continues in the next eagerly anticipated volume...

Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him.

He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so dang hard? But that isn’t the primary skill he has to master. Survival is.

And in order to survive, his next lesson makes all the others pale in comparison. He is on the brink of becoming either the greatest hero mankind has ever known.

Or he’ll be the one who ends the world. With enemies new and old gathering forces, he will have to call on every part of himself to fight or he’ll lose everyone he cares about.

Even himself.

Infamous is the third book in Sherrilyn Kenyon's Chronicles of Nick.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Kenyon's latest installment in the Chronicles of Nick series, 14-year-old Nick Gautier continues to learn about his heritage and destiny in a world where vampires, demons, and gods are very real. An excellent student at a private school in New Orleans, Nick has a way of always finding trouble. This time around, someone is posting lies about other students-lies that incite beatings and thoughts of suicide. With all the evidence indicating that Nick is the culprit, he and his friends must work to set things right. Holter Graham-who read the previous books in the series-provides engaging narration and well-rendered voices for all the book's recurring characters. As Nick, his voice is youthful and light and totally believable. For the book's villains, Graham's voices are equally spot-on accurate and entertaining. A thoroughly entertaining listen. Ages 12-up. A St. Martin's Griffin hardcover.

From the Publisher

“Alternating tones, pacing, and inflections to voice all the characters, Graham smoothly narrates this action-packed, suspenseful tale, a must-listen for series fans.” – Booklist

“[A] publishing phenomenon…[Sherrilyn Kenyon is] the reigning queen of the wildly successful paranormal scene. . .Just one example of arguably the most in-demand and prolific authors in America these days.” –Publisher’s Weekly

"Kenyon's writing is brisk, ironic and relentless imaginative.  These are not your mother's vampire novels." --Boston Globe

"[An] engaging read." --Entertainment Weekly

Children's Literature - Paula McMillen
This is the third installment in the "Chronicles of Nick" series, preceded by Infinity and Invincible. Readers new to the series will be constantly reminded that there is a lot they do not know about the history and challenges of fifteen-year-old Nick Gautier. The son of a poor single mom, formerly a stripper and now a manager in a French Quarter restaurant, Nick takes no end of grief from the denizens of the private school he attends about being "white trash." His relationship to his mom anchors his life, but it is the other half of his parentage that provides the story action. When he is not being a wisecracking teen with all the usual angsts (parents, girls, grades, bullying), Nick is trying to survive a whole army of evil creatures that want him dead, because he is the son of the Malachai—apparently the penultimate demon. Nick could be the next in line for the job of Malachai and his actions will determine if he is going to destroy or save the world. Protectors and guides—including one version of his future self—have been sent to look after him or stop him if necessary. His beautiful girlfriend, Kody, is not what she seems and we do not know exactly what her mission is in relation to Nick. Someone at school is posting horrible pictures and destructive claims about classmates on the Internet; Nick is suspected by many to be the perpetrator. Is this a plot concocted by those seeking to destroy Nick, or just garden variety human nastiness? The action is non-stop, while strong male and female characters are well-developed and supernatural. Followers of the series will be standing in line for this one and new readers will want to go back and fill in the gaps with the earlier books. Reviewer: Paula McMillen, Ph.D.

    YOUNG ADULT FOR THE NOT SO YOUNG ADULT

    Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson – LITERAL ADDICTION’s Pack Alpha]:
    I adore Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter series and the Chronicles of Nick spinoff is a wonderful companion. It’s amazing in its own right, but as a Dark-Hunter addict, it fills in a lot of holes and gives you plenty of ‘ah ha’ moments.

    Nick continues to learn about himself, or what he’s supposed to become, and in true Nick Gautier fashion, gets into plenty of trouble along the way.

    Saddled with the knowledge that he could bring about the apocalypse just by making 1 wrong decision, Nick tries to live life the best he can. He’s got a demon guardian who’s over 11,000 years old, an immortal girlfriend who hasn’t revealed quite what she is yet, a band of misfit friends who believe in him no matter what, a tutor who is literally Death, and an overbearing mother who he loves dearly but butts heads with at every turn.

    The first 2 installments of CoN were thrilling, but this one was wonderful. Not only do we have the normal players, but we meet some additional characters from Asmodea and Nick learns more about himself, his friends, his allies, and his enemies.

    There is definitely maturity with Nick’s character in this book that we didn’t get to see in the first two releases. He’s taking bad news and unlikely circumstances with a grain of salt, learning where to put his trust, where to spend his energy, and determining what to do and not to do in order to avoid Ambose’s tragic future.

    While the ending had a major cliffhanger and had me literally screaming “WTH!”, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and can’t wait until the next one. I got my DH fix between DH releases and that is a very, very good thing.

    LITERAL ADDICTION gives Infamous 4 1/2 Skulls, and would recommend it to all Sherrilyn Kenyon fans, Dark-Hunter addicts, and Dark Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance aficionados.

    The Chronicles of Nick series really can’t be read as stand-alone novels or out of order. If you’re going to take the plunge, I highly suggest that you read them all and in order. You won’t be disappointed.

    Great Storyline!

    Not only do I love the series but the humor and wit keeps me laughing out loud all the time. I also love the constant and great advice that Kody always shares with Nick. It makes you think and it resonates with real life situations. I find myself highlighting the great points and advice that we, as humans, need as a constant reminder on how to deal with real life situations. You can relate to them in this book. Things that make you go hmmmm. Very well written. I recommend this book to anyone of all ages.

    Normally I enjoy Kenyon's books and love the plot and where she takes the story. However, this book, didn't do much for me. I was disappointed by the continual "life lessons" "lessons learned" and at some points it was one right after the other. While I noramally appreciate hearing some of these it seems that the book went from one to another and lost site of direction. At some points, each character gave their "lessons learned speach" then the next character had their turn. I still am interested in how Nick will turn out and hope the next book isn't so much preachy preachy vs. sticking with the plot.

    I really like these stories they dont have sex scenes in them.
    Nick is reliving his life his older self is trying to change his path and save mankind.
    Nick stands up for his friends and trys to do righht. His mom is on his case a lot but this book brings them both to understand each other better.
    Nick feels like everyone is out to get him but he learns that he is making a difference and has lots of love and support.

    Great series

    I really enjoy this series but since I am not a teen the (spoiler alert) anti-bullying theme was a bit overwhelming coming off the action from the other 2 books in this series. Still a goo read gives a lot background information and is developing Nick's personality. Overall wish the book was bit longer took me half a day to read and cant wait for next one in series.
