Review: Infinity

By:  Sherrilyn Kenyon

Buy on Amazon

Rating: 5/5 Cogs


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 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 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?

My Review:

Maybe I'm just out of touch, but I had never heard of this series or author until I came across a hardback version of this book at The Dollar Tree.  I did a quick scan with my phone on Goodreads to see how it's rated, and I find that many of my friends have read and enjoyed this book.  Why did no one tell me about this?!  I really did get a great deal!

Now, I'm not much for books with a male protagonist, I mean..  I'm a thirty year old woman, how can I relate to a 14 year old boy?  I'm actually surprised at how much I love Nick.  He's such an adorable little smart mouth, and that I can definitely relate to.  Nick is a tough little man who wants nothing more than to protect his mother, but he's thrust into a world of insanity after making the correct decision that gets him shot.

The book is action packed, full of vampires, werewolves, zombies, and crazy old men wearing boots soaked in duck urine.  There's never a dull moment!  I have to say, this is definitely one of my best "Dollar Store Purchases" and I would recommend this to YA readers who want some paranormal with their action.
