At 14, 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. Like 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 science fiction. I love the reluctant hero. Characters that try to do the right thing no matter what.
As a new reader to Ms. Kenyon, it was a little confusing at first. Caught on fast though, really enjoyed it. Bought the remaining 4 books available. Was not disappointed.
Too hard to put down, ready to zoom through this fast paced series! In love.
The sarcasm. The smooth stream of pop references. The characterization. The sarcasm.
Honestly after reading so many urban fantasy (out of pure desperation, hunger and starvation...) NOTHING can replace good witty writing.
* i totally agree with the other reviewer saying that you should be mindful of your environment while listening because this makes you laugh at loud.
I was warned and yet...
Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.
Although this is a teen read. It was a great book. One thing is its a book that has a lot of powerful people on a small area. But it still was mad cool. A good quick read.
I could listen to this narrator read a dictionary. Give him the extraordinary writing of Ms. Kenyon & you cannot lose. My tween & I listened to the series together & I lived it as much as he did. amazing. Best YA series EVER.
I am a school teacher. I've been listening to books I think my 5th graders could read to find out if they are action packed enough.
Story is well written and performance was awesome. Can't wait to hear the next one of the series. Enjoyed it!
