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 just really didn't enjoy how this story was written. It was like the author had a completely wrong idea of what "young adult" is and instead wrote a very juvenile awkward story. The premise was interested but horribly executed. I was incredibly disappointed.
These books were so well written and narrated that I'm listening to them for the second time. I would highly recommend these books for kids of 11 and up!
Nick's story is a very cool one, albeit very much more YA than the rest of the dark Hunter series but in a way, a fun reprieve from all the deep, dark stuff of the other books. It's also one of the only storylines that has not yet been resolved, unlike most of the books in the DH series-which tend to wrap up nicely by the end of every book.
I am in my mid 50s love reading and continue my love for reading with audio books while driving helps me relax quietly after all day talking
Great spin off! You will of needed to read the dark hunter serious to understand many things in the story. But, great book and the narrator is one of my favorites. I only wish the book was longer. 8 hrs just doesn't seem like enough.
I would listen to Infinity again because this is a great beginning for Nick. I've read/listen to about 3/4 of the Dark Hunter series and the Chronicles of Nick is a fresh view of all the previous characters. It is nice to get a better understanding of Nick's relationship with his mother and why he is so furious with Ash in the present day.
Any scene Nick has Bubba and Mark is memorable because them are just so hilarious.
Holter Graham is one of my top 5 favorite narrators. He does characterization better than almost any other narrator and this man does great women voices. Even when I only read Dark Hunter books, I hear his voice in my head.
If it were not for a job and the need of sleep I could have listened to it in one sitting.
Any book written by Sherrilyn Kenton and narrated by Holter Graham that pops up goes immediately into my cart. I haven't been disappointed yet.
I found myself enjoying this story as it developed. It was probably written for young adults but this older adult found it interesting enough to consider reading more of the series. It has a good pace of action, funny and interesting group of characters and creative situations and resolutions.
This is a good book and a good start to a series I am looking forward to working my way through! It made me laugh out loud on several occasions and I liked the message of good over evil and that bullying can actually make you stronger and not just a victim. I would not say this is a novel that is appropriate for younger kids - not because of bad language - but because of references to females and sexual innuendos that might cause endless questions and/or some embarrassment if listening to this together!!! Overall this is very entertaining and I am truly glad I bought this book!
So like I said, still witty but more of this story is character development. Which is good, it was still entertaining enough to keep me interested but this one was not as great as the first, still, I'm willing to get the third book. The sinicism still calls to me.
Sarcasm, twang, attitude
For sure Nick, although I do think Simi is funny too!
This guy does a wonderful job with all the characters and makes it funny.
YES! Heck yeah, I'm already on the second book, almost done with it.
I highly recommend, especially for adults. I feel like this is borderline more for adults than young adults. The sarcasm is awesome!
