Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon


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?

Epic wins:

  • The sheer hilarity! I (as you know if you have read any of my reviews before) love to laugh; I especially love to read books that make me laugh. When the whole world was crushing down on him Nick could still make a joke as he sliced through a couple of zombies.
  • The paranormal factor. Zombies, demons, vampires, werewolves you name it, it was probably mentioned in this book.
  • Nick is very much a sarcastic guy. His street smarts keep him in trouble. He is dirt poor but has heart worth more than all the gold in the world.
  • Tricky, twisty roller coaster. No crying, just intense action jam packed into so few pages and tidbits of romance to ease the longing for a love story.
  • The book only takes place over two days.
  • Very fast read, the quick pace and funny nature allow you to blow through the pages.
  • The reasons to read this book are infinite (ha ha ha)

Epic Fail:

  • The point of views. Typically YA fiction is 1st person but Infinity was crazy. At the start of one paragraph you are Nick and by the end of it you have traveled through another character and on to the narrator. Pretty confusing to me.


Clearly the good out was the bad (like it should). Nick has to battle the good and bad lurking inside him, but in the end what power will he fall to?

I loved this book to infinity and beyond!

just sayin,
