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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kick me already. Why did I avoid this series? Well hmmm, what to say about Infinity. If you haven’t read it yet, then why the heck not? Oh that’s right I have to ask myself why I avoided this series myself. Reality is that even though Sherrilyn Kenyon is one of my top favorite authors I avoided this series solely because it was YA. What a stupid reason. Just because it doesn’t have all the adult themes her other books have doesn’t mean it doesn’t still entertain and draw you in like all the rest. Boy I could sure kick my own butt for having avoided Nick’s Chronicles. Not wanting to spend the money if I didn’t like the series I checked them out from the library, something I haven’t done for a number of years. Well that was a new experience as well because you see I got some in ebook, some in audio book and a few in hard back. None of them were in order because let’s face it when you have to wait for them to come off hold you don’t get them in order. Infinity is the first in the series and I believe it was the fourth in the series I read. No matter though because I was easily able to pick up any of the books and read them out of order and follow along. Infinity is the story of how a young fourteen year old poverty stricken youth gets involved in the paranormal world of New Orleans. Nick Gautier (that’s Go-shay for those that don’t know how to pronounce the name correctly, like me) is streetwise with a sarcastic streak that will have you chuckling. He attends a private school on scholarship because when it comes down to it he’s no dummy. In fact he’s rather smart. He’s hassled regularly for the poor taste in clothing his mom saddles him with and harassed because of his mother’s stripper career. While hassling him for his clothing choices irritate him he can let it slide right off him. Not so if you have something bad to say about his mom. If there is one thing Nick will not let slide it’s dissing his mom. One nasty comment too many and a fight later finds Nick suspended from school. Things go quickly downhill from there. Nick ends up shot and saved by a rich warrior dude who offers to pay his hospital bills. Not wanting to take charity Nick agrees to work for Kyrian. Just like that his world expands and in waltzes all the things that go bump in the night including werewolf football players, katana carrying girlfriends, a demon protector and zombies. Oh did I mention zombies? Lots of zombies and Nick is up to his neck in trying to figure out how to get rid of them. The action is tight and the pace is quick. I couldn’t put Infinity down and finished it in one sitting. I absolutely loved Nick and his quirky secondary characters. His relationship with his mom both reminded me of my own as well as my relationship with my own kids. If you haven’t picked up this series I would highly recommend it. It doesn’t matter your age you’ll still find enough to connect with. As I said I read some of these and listened to a few others in audio format. Either will satisfy you. The voice actor that performs the reading is incredible. It’s kind of funny but as I read this book I kept hearing that actor’s voice in my head reading it to me. That’s unusual because honestly I’m not used to hearing anyone else’s voice in my head but my own. I guess I really like his though because it so works. So now I’m off to read Invincible… cheers :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very predictable, awful use of "teen" language by an older woman writer This was recommended by an associate who knows my tastes really well so I didn't even question it. Usually I can't put a book down, but this one was fairly painful to read. The main character is supposed to be highly intelligent, yet he continually goes back to speaking like an ignorant fool. Also, I recommended that the writer avoids over doing trying to sound like a teenage boy when she's clearly well into her 50s+. It truly felt like she was trying too hard. There's one thing to get Cajun dialect correct and there's another to overdo it. The book itself was boring, predictable, and reeked of mommy/daddy issues. None of the characters are likeable. Extremely disappointing because I could have really used a good series right now! I'll be avoiding everything by Kenyon to say the least. Lesson learned, her writing style is not one I like. It's not sophisticated or intelligent, I like my books to keep me entertained, not just waste some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it With "Infinity" Sherrilyn Kenyon has taken a character who was really on the sidelines in many of the Dark Hunter books and given him his own spotlight... The Chronicles of Nick focuses on the early years of Nick Gautier, and for readers of the more adult Dark Hunters series, seems to have splintered off a bit into a slightly different time line. I enjoyed this book a lot, and have highly recommended it to friends who also enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING This book is is a young reen adult book. Sherrilyn kenyon is an amazing writer that has managed to Compare situatuions that would seem to be happening to others in real with the characters. this book is filled with adventures and mysteries. Nick fights for his life trying to save his friends and his mom from ZOMBIES!The more i 've continued the read this book, it has managed to take my mind to some sort of alternate universe visualising what goes on tin the book.This book is definitely entertaining and i will try to read the rest of the series.
