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
This was another okay instalment, and once again the pace seemed quite slow. I can’t say I was all that impressed with what the story boiled down to at the end either, and Nick’s continued attitude and belief that he’s awesome was also annoying.

6 out of 10

They say when you’re about to die, you see your entire life flash before your eyes.
.....They lied.

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!
I might hit 40s before I finish reading

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

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 (
Oooooh...that ending!
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

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

The main character really annoyed me in this one.

Just like book one, the pacing was slow, and it dragged. I tried reading something else alongside this, but it didn't help. (Although that book wasn't brilliant either.)

Overall, A slow read.

En éste libro encontrarán a un Nick mucho más consciente de los eventos sobrenaturales a su alrededor y que, de una manera u otra, tendrá que hacerle frente tanto por él mismo como por su madre y el mundo.
Algunos de los personajes que nos gustaron en el primer libro quedan un poco atrás y el libro se centra en el descubrimiento de poderes y evolución de lazos. Como dije en mi reseña de Infinity, sí están buscando más del estilo Dark Hunter, no lo van a encontrar aquí pero, como alguie

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

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

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
So...I read book 3 and then this both book 2 and 3 were confusing :P But they did start to make more sense as I kept reading and remembered what had happened in the first book and what was 'going to happen' in the third book.
I am really enjoying this series. Nick is a fun character, even though he is a 14 year old boy. The supernatural element of the story is often quite confusing and hard to figure out but because it is a fast paced book, it is not long before the answers show up.

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

What a good story. I'm glad I have the third book on hand so I can go ahead and continue!

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

I am a little conflicted by this book. It picked up right where the first one finished, which was good once I recalled what had happened in the first book, and more importantly, how it had ended. The plot twists were interesting, along with a slight other storyline that teased its way through, leaving the reader guessing. The climax felt awfully rushed to me, and the resolution, sadly, resolved nothing. However, given the long game the author is playing with the storyline, I think I will read th ...more

That which doesn’t kill you hopefully makes you stronger. Or is that invincible?

Invincible the second installment in the Chronicles of Nick sees our hero taking lessons from Death. Death as in the Grim Reaper is a serious downer. He has absolutely no sense of humor. Grim comes complete with his own set of shadows, Pain and Suffering. His lessons are slow and tedious and Nick despairs that he will ever master what he’s shown. The name of the game is divination.

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.

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

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
Jen (Red Hot Books)
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

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
