Infinity (Chronicles of Nick Series #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough, and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends. . .until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, the teenaged Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.


Nick quickly learns that the human world is only a veil for a much larger and more dangerous one: a world where the captain of the football team is a werewolf and the girl he has a crush on goes out at night to stake the undead. But before he can even learn the rules of this new world, his fellow students are turning into flesh-eating zombies--and he's next on the menu.
As if starting high school isn't hard enough. . .now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chain saw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, all without getting grounded or suspended. How in the world is he supposed to do that?

Let me first start by saying that I am an avid Dark-Hunter fan. Kenyon's novels truly make me.....feel. The stories of Zarak and Acheron nearly tore my heart out while Ravyn's (my first introduction into this world) had me laughing out loud more times than I can remember. With that said, this book I would classify as a bit odd and very incomplete. I got the impression that Kenyon was just setting the theme or background of the overall arc to Nick's story. Kinda like a history lesson. You are reading what has happened; are familiar with the characters, but there's no evoking of any emotional response. So, for this reason, I'm reserving judgment. And I suggest to the fans to be patient. Read this book only as a prelude to the "real" story that is coming, and anticipate an arc worthy of Nick and of Kenyon's talent.

Wonderful Book I enjoyed reading. kept me entertained all the way through.

So it says Chronicles of Nick Series #1, and I get it, but to me it just picks up the Dark/Dream/Were-Hunter story as it leaves off from Bad Moon Rising. I LOVE that we are getting a history now and seeing Kyrian before Amanda, but the most important piece is finally getting a story through Nick's eyes so we can care about him as much as all the characters do. After all the Sherrilyn Kenyon books I have read, I think this one was her best writing yet. You can start with this book if you really want to, but you will enjoy it so much more if you start at the beginning with Julian's story in Fantasy Lover.

(This rating is actually 3.5 stars but I rounded up. It was a very good read.) Let me admit a bias right off the bat. I didn't read any of Sherilynn's Dark Hunter series and I realized from perusing her website that ooops, this was a prequel series. Now on her website, it states that you do not have to read the books sequentially, here: http://www.sherrilynkenyon.com/series.ph... This was fortunate for me because, as you know, I stick to pretty much YA fantasy and don't venture often into grown-up paranormal romance. Having admitted that bias, I have to say that the voice of the protagonist, Nick, captured my heart from the very first page. Sherilynn wrote this snarky, beaten down, broken boy in such a way that his words and actions tugged at this Mundie Mom's heart. And I know it's far-fetched to imagine a Mundie Mom liking a broken, snarky male protagonist. Nick's own description of himself as a "kid born standing up and talking back" (p. 421) says it all perfectly. What took me by surprise was how the world unfolded. One minute, Nick's in school, where his only demons are the school bullies who try to involve him in troublesome pursuits and the next minute -- whoa! zombies are actually invading the school. It was a sudden plunge into a world Nick only believed existed in video games. Because Sherilynn presented everything through Nick's eyes, I felt his world being turned upside down. And I felt his quick grasp on this new reality as he realizes zombies, demons and vampires are all real. In fact, they are all after him. Other characters are introduced at a fairly fast pace. I believe that if I had read the other books, I may have understood their personalties faster and grasped their influence on Nick a little bit more. But, I credit Sherilynn's excellent writing for allowing me to keep them straight as well as begin to see how they will tie into Nick's future. My favorite of these secondary characters is Bubba, the owner of the largest gun store in town. Bubba is a one-of-a-kind man, who delivers some of the best lines in the book: "There is always infinity, strap on your big-boy pants, hiking boots and go." (p. 410). This book is another great summer escape. Just think of it Mundie Moms, you get to spend some time with Nick in New Orleans fighting off zombies. Sounds like a perfect way to spend a hot evening.

In New Orleans lives fourteen year old Nick Gautier whose mother is a stripper and whose father killed people in the double digits. He sees the world like most mortals, but soon the filter will be lifted from his eyes; enabling him to observe the preternatural world, the good and the bad. Both sides will want him for their own purposes because he possesses powers that have not yet been tapped, which means whatever side he picks,the dark or the light, will deploy him as a powerful weapon. When Nick chooses to prevent his friends from robbing and killing two elderly tourists, Night Hunter Kyrian Hunter saves his life by rushing him to the hospital. He also pays the bill and gives him a hefty salary intending to make him a squire later on. Nick is unaware of most of Kyrian's plans, but he gets a close-up glimpse of the dark side when students are turned into living zombies who hunt him while eating people. He is only one of many who note the changes in the people turned zombies but he may be the only hope they have to find a way return them back into carefree teens. Expanding on her mythos, Sherrilyn Kenyan has another hit series with "The Chronicles of Nick", which targets young adults but also will be appreciated by the Night Hunter audience fans of all ages. The affluent students who attend scholarship Nick's new private school, their parents and the faculty believe Nick and his mom are trailer trash; however he refuses to let them put him down as he adores and admires his mom so their opinion and snide asides mean nothing except to toughen him. He will need that mental toughness and thick skin in his new vocation as readers will enjoy the teen exploits of Nick the hunter squire in training. Harriet Klausner

I've been looking for years for a Teen - YA novel that didn't star a girl who falls in love. Nick has a heart of gold and loves his mother. The amount of characters in this book was astonishing, but the characters each have very unique and interesting personalities.  I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good but quick read.

Is this book very simple, as most young adult books are? Does it read as if by the mind of a 14 year old, or is it just reading about a 14 year old? As in, did she still write it as she did all the other DH books or is it more childish, written for the younger mind? I love Nick, and was so excited to get his whole story, but I just don't know about it being a YA novel, when I'm so used to the adult dark hunter series. I would hate to have this ruin the entire series for me. Please mention this in your review if you have read this book. THANK YOU!!

I was surprised that I didn't see a full synopsis when I checked to pre-order this book, so I'm sticking in a synopsis I found somewhere else. Hope this helps people out, I'm really looking forward to the series because Nick and Simi have been some of my favorite characters in Kenyon's adult Dark-Hunter's series. At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends. Until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity. Nick quickly learns that the human world is only a veil for a much larger and more dangerous one. A world where the captain of the football team is a werewolf and the girl he has a crush on goes out at night to stake the undead. But before he can even learn the rules of the new world, his fellow students are turning into flesh eating zombies. And he's next on the menu. Like starting high school isn't hard enough. Now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chainsaw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, all without getting grounded or suspended! How in the world is he supposed to do that?

This was by far the best book I have read in a very long time. I was very excited to start this series because of where the story takes place, which is in new orleans about an hour from where I live, let me tell you I was not dissapointed. Nick is absolutely hilarous, witty along with an excellent sense of humor. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters they were very well thought out. I liked the crazy streak in the story as well, bubba. Very amusing and am looking happily foward to the rest of the books of this series. I highly recomnend.

I was extreamly dissapointed in this book. From what the reviews said i had expected it to be amazing, but i swear the author has the mentality of a three year old. I will not be purchasing the rest of the series.

This is a good story. The main character is a teen, but it doesn't have all of the angst and emo I've seen in other books. So many supernatural creatures get caught up in the battle against the zombies. Nick is an interesting character and a good center for all of the madness. This is a good beginning for a fiction book series.
