Infinity (Chronicles of Nick #1)
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 e...more
'"To infinity, meaning you'd see something through to the end."
Nick didn't get it. "Infinity is never-ending."
"That's right, which means you keep going and going no matter what happens or what obstacles you meet. Over, under, around, or through. There's always a way. And if you have to chase something to infinity, strap on your big-boy pants, hiking boots, and go."'
Rating: 4,5 stars
Wow! I admit that I was a bit worried about this one before starting, as it's a YA spin-off to the Dark-Hunter...more

• I didn’t depart the Dark Hunter series with the best feelings;
• Never really liked Nick;
• Wasn’t sure of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s ability to write a good YA novel.
Did I make a good choice with Infinity? Will the Chronicles of Nick rock your world? Well no and no. Sorry Nicky boy, you’re just not cool enough. Yet.
The book lacks a proper story. All I got was Nick being bullied, Nick lacking food and Nick being chased by stupid jock zombies (c...more
The book dragged on trying to get started as we went to school with Nick and watched him persecuted more thoroughly than Bilbo at an Orc convention. We suffered through him having to live on powdered eggs...with maybe a little bacon, sometimes not even out of date (Nick's mom is poor but noble....not real understanding at times, but noble. Oh and also very importan...more
Nick is a 14 years old and dirt poor. His Mom is a stripper and they eat substituted food like powdered eggs. I am not sure if Nick feels bad about his home situation because his his attitude is so acidic at times. I'll sting you, befor...more
Sometimes, Nick wishes life was easier. He hates his mother's job that lets them barely survive, and he hates the boys at school for mocking him and his mom. He can't stop himself from fighting. When he's suspended, he's in hot water with his overprotective mother. She makes him promise to go straight home, but he runs into his crowd. They give him an offer to make money that he just can't refuse.
Nick can't go through with the plan and ends up sav...more

The story was based on the popular series of 'Dark-Hunter' from Sherrilyn Kenyon. It took back to almost the beginning of 'Dark Hunters' series which Kyrian just hired Nick as a squire. Yes, Nick's story was tempting since I always like Nick althoug...more

(view spoiler)[It began with Nick getting up from bed, he ate and hurried to the bus, so he wouldn't be late for school. Nick was once sho in the arm, by his former friends. Their names were Mike, Tyree, and Alan. Nick had to battle lots of zombies on the way, of his adventure. Maudaug made this game, called Zombie Hunter, that when someone played it, they got turned into a zombie. Mark gives Nick some rules, of survival. Bubba has...more
Infinity started out just like every other paranormal novel, albeit with a slower pacing than most. Nick Gautier is introduced, his background briefly touched upon, and the paranormal aspect stirred in. I was expecting some sort of yay-let’s-all-go-stake-vampires novel, when WA-BAMMM…
I went back and re-read the part to make sure I got it right. I mean, vampires, werewolves, dark hunters, gods, immortals, AND zombies?!?! (Yea...more
Nick Gautier žije se svou matkou v chudší části města a na prestižnější školu se dostal jen díky stipendiu. Což mu jeho spolužáci dávají každý den pořádně sežrat. Kluci si z něj rádi dělají boxovací pytel a jeho matku častují jednou šťavnatější urážkou za druhou. Nicko...more

Özellikle zombi severlere öneririm kitabı. Ancak sadece ilk kitapta zombilerin fazla olduğunu düşünüyorum çünkü seride oldukça fazla doğadışı varlık var.
Kitapta en sevdiğim karakter Acheron'du. Nick'i de sevdim ama biraz fazla kafasının dikine giden bir çocuk. Ensinir olsuğum karakterse Nick'in annesi. Kadın çocuğu 1 dk rahat bırakmadı yahu :D
Kitap Nick'in gözünden anlatılan bölümlerde fazla teenageti ki bu da gayet normal Nick 14 yaşında. Ancak kitabın güzelliği bunu görmezden gelmenizi s...more
Da Notte di Piaceri sappiamo che Nick è molto legato a Kiryan, il suo senso della leatà va probabilmente oltre quello di un normale "scudiero" (servitore diurno) e questo perchè il Cacciatore Osc...more
Just like that.
I suddenly felt very, very curious. You don't just go "Oh, Nick" to any character. And so I began reading and thought...
"ZOMBIES? WHAT THE HECK?"
And then I kept reading.
And I still sort of feel like "ZOMBIES?! WHAT THE HECK?"
But I also feel like
"WHERE THE HECK IS THE SEQUEL? SOMEBODY GET ME THE SEQUEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Because, zombies and all, this was an enjoyable read. Sure, I thought his "hormones" wer...more
First of all Nick was a Malachai without him knowing and through the events of the novel he gets exposed to the Dark - Hunter worlds and other fantasy creatures of sorts.
The main problem was a Zombie outbreak cause by a boy, Madguas or something, who somehow mad...more
After reading this book though, I've realized I'm a really odd YA reader. What I mean by that is I have a tremendous amount of YA books in my TBR pile. I quite enjoy when the lead...more
Nick Gautier was an interesting character. His sarcasm was cool at first but as the book progresses it came to be annoying. I liked it when he’s being sarcastic but not all the time. There’s a limit to when sarcasm became annoying and Nick managed to cross that limit. Nick also has these crazy moo...more
Then it jumps the shark as the author begins introducing so many different creatures people and empty hinted at story lines that never come to fruitiion. She makes a HUGE mess of it and it goes from a fun read to a convoluted non-sensical almost indeciperapble mess.
Its like the horror section at the video store threw up and the author expects me to clean it up. Zombies- t...more

His not-so-beautiful life changes when a mysterious warrior saved him from his friend who trying to kill him. Not only his financial state was save now but also Nick sucked into the realm he couldn't figure it out yet.
