Book Description:

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?
I love the dark hunter’s series so it’s nice to go back and see how things started for nick and still get to be in this amazing world.
Infinity is in the point of view of a fourteen year old name Nick Gautier. Nick is a very sweet caring mature boy for his age. I love that he stuck up for his mom no matter how much trouble he got in for it. With his mom Cherise, I could tell she would do anything for him. One thing that I had an issue with is I sometimes had a hard time understanding the slang that he spoke. I tried to think back when I was fourteen and I can’t remember if fourteen year old boys talked that way.
I actual felt really bad for Nick. He has it really rough and then his life is getting up heaved as what he truly is being slowly revealed. I couldn’t even imagine what it is like to walk around having a normal life and the next thing you know you life changes. One thing I have to say without getting into spoilers is I hope Nicks little “friends” get what is coming to them. All in all though I know it had to happen for Kyrian to come along but it was just hard to watch.
Infinity dealt with an outbreak of zombies, teenage football playing zombies to be more exact. Let me just say also that they were made in a very unique way. It was more of a comical book about zombies than an actual lets go into panic mode.
The secondary characters were the most interesting bunch of characters I have ever seen. It was awesome to see characters like Tabitha that I already knew from the dark hunter’s series. Bubba and Mark remind me of the guys I went to school with, with their interesting analogies and computer geek/ redneck ways. I grew up in the south so it’s not hard to fall in love with their crazy butts.
New Orleans is the perfect setting for this series. All I can think about is eating beignets and riding the street car with Nick to find another adventure. I have always wanted to visit New Orleans and how it is beautifully detailed in Infinity makes me feel like I have already been there.
I am excited to see what is going to happen next with Nick and hopefully get a more in depth look in to the thing we slowly are learning about him. I have a feeling it is about to get really crazy and I can’t wait.
