HOLY FRIGGIN' CRAP! - This book was mindbogglingly amazing! The second installment to the Dark-Hunter spin off young ydult series, Chronicles of Nick, the plot of Invincible was just as amazing as Infinity's.

I couldn't help but fall in love all the more with this amazing character, Nick Gautier. He had captured my adoration and love all the way back to the first novel of the Dark-Hunter series, Night Pleasures, and he continued to do so off-and-on throughout the twenty three books of the series...more

Lets see. how will I start this review. First, let me tell you that when I first read the Infinity I didn't know that its a spin off of the Dark Hunter series. Which I also just discovered that it had 20 books. Plus theres other spin off of the spin off of the book! How lovely!

The Chronicles of Nick is Sherrilyn Kenyon's first young adult series and, personally, I think that Invincible is infinitely better than the first book of the series, Infinity. Don't get me wrong, I loved Infinity. However, aside from the fact that there was no sex and minimal swearing, Invincible felt less like a young adult novel to me. I may be the only one who feels that way, but there it is.

That being said, I just want to say that I really like that Nick has different adventures and trials...more

Yeah. That's how I felt the whole time.
Major step down from Infinity.
Hopefully Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) will be better.

You have to respect an author who's been #1 on the NY Times Bestseller list 12 times in 2 years.

Invincible is book 2 in the Chronicles of Nick series, the YA spin-off from her Dark Hunter novels and it jumps in right where book 1 (Infinity) left off. And you really need to have read the first one for much of it to make sense.
Aside from that, it's a beautifully irreverent adventure through the world Sherrilyn Kenyon has created, told through the eyes of a sarcastic 14 year old boy: Nick Gautier (...more

Good that I'm a fast reader:) After finishing Infinity the day before I directly got Invincible downloaded.

Again I love Nick the most, his strength and braveness and loyalty to his friends. I espeically love his humor and sarcasm although I could imagine if I'd met him for real I would be annoyed at some point *snickers*

Well, anyway Invincible takes place just the next day after the end of Infinity. But Nick won't have time to breath - a new coach is in town and there is something about him th...more

Why do I stay on the Sherrilyn Kenyon gravy train? She keeps digging her hand into my wallet and I haven't slapped it away yet. I keep doing this to myself and then when it's over I kick myself in the butt.

I understand this series is written for young adults, I do. But come on, how many young adults are reading this? I would venture to guess most of The Chronicles of Nick readers are Dark Hunter fans, or children of DH fans. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry but I have to exhale my frustration over this...more
✽ Sharon is an emotional book junkie ✽
My mind is still reeling after reading this book. It has sooo many layers and multiple story lines. Not to mention all the characters!! And if you are a Dark Hunter fan, you really have to set aside what you think you know from what happens. And are the good guys still good guys or are they bad guys and who can you trust??

I certainly don't envy Nick and what he has to go through and he never catches a break....much less any time to just process things. I think Infinity was interesting because we...more
Samantha (Book Lover's Cozy Cafe)
I'm so loving this series, Nick was always one of my favorite characters in the Dark Hunters series. SO it would go without reason that I would love him in his own series. But now I'm curious if that the things that are happening to Nick now is going to change the course for Nick in the Dark Hunter series??? Because in the Dark Hunters series he didn't know he was anything but human, and in TCoN he knows he isn't fully human, and that he is someone who will end up ending the world in his future....more

“Darker than the first”

Problem after the another. This is Nick’s life as he keeps his eyes wide open to his surroundings. Demons, Vampires, Were wolves and immortal people.

The story is not what I expected to be but I really got entertained reading it. The characters are humorously funny in a darker way.

I know this is awkward but I really enjoy Kyrian’s scenes although he doesn’t appear much but I really appreciate his concern to Nick like a big brother.

I don’t want to spoil the whole book but th...more

This book was AMAZING.I fell in love with Nick in Infinity, but this book made me fall in love with him even more!! I loved his witty sarcasm and those one-liners that made me laugh out loud!
The one thing that stood out most was Nicks relationship with his Mom. The love that shone through her words made my heart melt. :)
The sarcasm in this book can get a little bit annoying, but it made me fall in love with the characters even more - if that was even possible!
All in all, this was an amazing boo...more

เล่มนี้ไม่มีอะไรเลย แถมอารมณ์ยังนิ่งมากๆ เนื้อเรื่องกว่า 60% บรรยายถึงชีวิตประจำวันของนิคว่าวันนี้นิคไปทำอะไรบ้าง ไปเจอกับใครมา แล้วมีความคืบหน้าอะไรไหม ... ซึ่ง มันทำให้เรารู้สึกเบื่อ !

การต่อสู้ไม่ได้เข้มข้นมันหยดติ๋งเหมือนเล่มที่แล้วเลยด้วยซ้ำ กับตัวร้ายที่ดูเหมือนจะตายง่ายไปหน่อย แต่ตัวละครเล่มนี้ก็น้อยจริงจัง มีคนที่มีบทบาทสำคัญอยู่แค่ไม่กี่คนเอง ซึ่งถ้าเทียบกับเล่มที่แล้วนี่เราขอบอกเลยว่า*คุณภาพ*ต่างกันมากๆ

สิ่งที่เรายังประทับใจอยู่นั่นก็คือความสัมพันธ์ของแม่กับนิค อ่านแล้วมันรู้สึกอบอุ่นมาก...more

This is the second installment in the Chronicles of Nick. I love Sherrilyn's writing and the sarcasm/wit infused in her books. This series is a young adult prequel of sorts to her Dark Hunter series.
Paranormal Haven
Invincible starts where Infinity left off. Nick Gautier has just battled zombies and is given no time to lick his wounds. Nick must start learning to use his powers and quickly before his enemies find him. As if that wasn't enough pressure to place on his 14 year old shoulders, his new principle is looking for a reason to kick Nick out of his privileged school and the new football coach plans on using Nick off the field in order to accomplish his wicked plan. His classmates are being murdered an...more

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

This series is a blast! Sherrilyn Kenyon continues to reinvent the character of Nick Gautier (made famous in her adult paranormal romance series, Dark-Hunter) by turning back the clock to when he was a teenager and allowing him (and those around him) to make different decisions that then ripple out and change his future/history in several key ways. It’s brilliant really because this approach allows both old and new readers to fully embrace the Chronicle...more

Sherrilyn Kenyon continues her YA Dark-Hunter companion series, with this second installment of The Chronicles of Nick. Invincible picks up mere seconds after the conclusion of Infinity , with Nick's revelation that his boss Kyrian is something other than human. I have to say that this was a little disappointing. I had hoped that Nick would age with each book as he grew closer to the timeline of the DH books where he first appeared. But alas, he is still 14.

Thankfully, though, this installment d...more

Five stars, once again. :)

The book takes place in New Orleans, where Nick Gautier's week just keeps getting worse and worse. First zombie attacks, now his Coach is an evil madman. Main conflict? His Coach wants him to do unspeakable things(Literally) or he'll put Nick in jail. Doesn't sound too good, huh?

This book was slower than the last one, which wasn't what I was expecting. I had been thinking that this book would be the same pace as the last one, but it wasn't sadly. :( It was still amazing...more

Oh my goodness, Invincible was just as good as the first one. I finished this audiobook immediately after Infinity a month ago. This story is still stuck in my head and book 3, Infamous, comes out in March! Another book I know will be added to my favorites list.

Invincible picks up immediately where Infinity left off. Nicks has recently found out everyone he knows is some supernatural creatu...more

The Chronicles of Nick is a young adult offshoot from Sherrilyn Kenyon's popular Dark-Hunter romance series. I've tried reading a few of the Dark-Hunter books since reading INFINITY in order to fill in the backstory. I enjoyed the romance, but was left very confused. In the Dark-Hunter I read, Nick Gaultier is this angry guy who goes about messing up people's plans. In the Chronicles of Nick, he's a sweet boy being hunted by a variety of nasties.

The monster of the week is Devus, the new coach at...more

This second installment of the Chronicles of Nick wasn't as strong as the first and seemed less… full… somehow. I think it may be a matter of unreasonable escalation that the series is building as it goes along. We already know that Nick is destined to be the destroyer of the universe (only maybe not) from the first book. And we already know that diverse powers and influences are gathering to force him to endorse their various agendas. The problem I had was feeling like those forces were buildin...more
Joy (joyous reads)
I keep hoping that this series will get better. But so far, I’ve not seen even a shadow of talent that I’ve come to know of Sherrilyn Kenyon. This isn’t the action-packed, adrenaline rush that I’m used to reading. This book for example, moved at such a snail’s pace. I got to page 255 and still, nothing had happened. It was also at that point when I realized that I was reading for the sake of reading, unable to care what happened either way. Consequently, by page 272, I knew I was postponing the...more

What I thought:
1. Disappointing
2. Whiny main character
3. Poorly written
4. Sexist

This book is immature and poorly written. I found it in the bargain bin at Walmart and read it for fun. I felt a little lost and when I looked it up online realized it was actually book 2 in a series. Wow, wish it had said that somewhere on the book.

It took forever for this book to get going, then the problem was realized and resolved very quickly. The characters have no dimension. Nick is a whiny kid who complains...more

I HAVE FAILED!

I couldn't do it. I couldn't finish this book. Maybe I've grown up too much from reading the last or something. I dont EVEN know. The book couldn't hold my attention I couldn't even bring myself to finish it, and I usually like Sherrilyn Kenyon's books.



Sherrilyn's writing of a teenage boy was laughable, and I cringed every time I had to read the lines "crapola" or some other weird slang words. I liked the idea though, much different than her more mature books, but it couldn't hold...more
Airicka Phoenix



I stayed up half the night finishing this book, loving every minute that passed where Nick's mother didn't make an appearance. Man, it was sweet! She was there, but not with the full force of an octopus or leech like the first book.

So, the book starts exactly, a day after the first book, Infinity ended. All the characters from the first book are present, as well as a few new ones, like coach Davus. Plus a character I hope we'll see again in the upcoming books, Xenon. I really liked him. Unfortun...more

What can I say? I was totally overjoyed when this audiobook arrived unannounced on my doorstep the other week. INFINITY took me totally by surprise (read - I LOVED it!) and left me waiting impatiently for the follow-up action in Nick Gautier's life. And I'm pleased to report that INVINCIBLE did NOT disappoint.

Holter Graham picks up the action of INVINCIBLE from the first words of the story. Immediately, the listener is transported back to New Orleans and th...more

Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Series: The Chronicles of Nick #2
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Form: Audiobook


Synopsis: Picking up right where Infinity left off, Nick Gautier is now training with Grimm (Death) to be able to access and use his powers effectively, a task he’s finding quite difficult and frustrating, especially with information coming from Grimm (Death), Uncle Ambrose, Caleb, and Kody – and usually the information is a bit conflicting. Also, it seems as though he’s being stalked, tha...more

My...my...my... who ever would have thought that I could be sucked in to a young adult read??? Maybe it's because I already love Nick...most likely it is. But who cares what the reason, I love this series. And I love reading about our young Nick. Damn he's had one hard life. It's not surprising that he's a wise cracking little shit most of the time. It's his defense mode and to be honest I can't really blame him.
This was one intense, fun and moving read. The ending killed me...how long do we ha...more

Overall, I liked it. Younger Nick has a great sense of humor, & I liked his point of view. I read it all in one sitting & was mainly looking for some more answers regarding how this series is going to alter the adult series. Maybe I misread something in the first book, but I thought Nick found out Simi was Ash's in Infinity (apparently not). I'm still quite skeptical how this is all going to turn out without discrediting all the events from the adult series. We shall see. Moreover, I lik...more

Loved it! It was just as exciting as Infinity.

I adore Nick, sure he's a little immature and cocky at times, but what fourteen year old boy isn't? This was funny, entertaining and explosive. Bubba is still as crazy as ever, and after finding out about his past, I felt really sorry for him.
I loved the Simi so much, she's awesome. And also Caleb, Acheron, Kyrian and Grim - I loved them, too. What I wouldn't give to become immortal! Well, okay .. I wouldn't resort to what Coach Devus did, that was i...more
