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?

The characters have depth and I found it easy to believe in and like them, immediately from the beginning to the end. The story was a pleasant blend of powerful emotion, making me feel for the main character and wish for him to succeed, but at the same time the entire story is fairly humorous and a little goofy. The over-all story is pretty complex without leaving the reader lost. A great opening story for everyone who wants a continuing story about Vampires, Were-creatures, Ghouls, and Demons.
I enjoyed this book very much. It moved at a good pace with lots of laughs and action. Had to rewind several times to hear again because I was laughing so hard I missed parts of It.
This history of Nick is quite impressive. It certainly gave me a glimpse into his attitude, his wit and his fearlessness. I think my favorite aspect of this book is the gritty determination of Nick, not taking life in stride, but overcoming his obstacles with humor and an innate sense of what is right for him, his moral code. He may not follow any one else's rules, but he is true to his own.
Learning that Ambrose truly wishes he could help Nick escape the future that enslaved him.
When Nick discovers that his own code, his own sense of justice is what he must live for.
One catastrophe at a time......
I love this author. I learn something from her books, so not only is she entertaining, she is educational. She offers a sarcastic life view that is oddly refreshing!
I enjoy Holter Graham's take on the Dark Hunter series, i.e. My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding", and this installment didn't disappoint. Nick's story is a great one and is cohesive if you are familiar with the adult Nick in the Dark Hunter series. I found this story funny and good natured with all the snarkiness Ms. Kenyon's books are known for.
The book is a great young adult novel. I have read Sherrilyn Kenyons adult Dark Hunter Series, and this is a spin off of it for young adults. It is a great start to a YA series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, and the narrator is pretty good too.
The main books are fine, but this one is more for the teens then grown ups. It has zombies and werewolfves and really doesn't speak to what
Nick is learning about the Hunter.
I loooooooovvvve books!!!!!!!!
This was a great book! Sherilyn has done it again! I love and enjoyed the humor and wit of all the characters especially of (believe it or not) Bubba. Could not put book down! Holter Graham should always read all of dark hunters books. He brings each character to life with their own quirks. Great Narrator!!!
I really loved this book and was surprised really. I will watch zombie movies IE: Resident Evil, however I had no desire to read about them.That being said, I am a huge fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon so I trusted her and took a chance and she has changed my mind, at least in Nick's saga. I had so many questions about Nick and didn't like what she did to him in the Dark Hunter books. I see now, she had a plan all along on what she was doing with Nick's character. I know this review sounds kind of weird, but I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't read this book or the Dark Hunter books. All I can say is, trust the master of this series and the DH series. She has it all worked out and if you love Sherrilyn Kenyon's work, you will not be disappointed!! I can't wait for the next installment in Nick's story!!GREAT BOOK!!!
I really like the Dark Hunter series, but this cross over was almost painfully bad to listen to. It couldn't even hold my interest through my daily commute. Too juvenile, the characters are also not as developed as her other series. This is definitely no Acheron! Sorry Sherrilyn. I would strongly recommend the Dark Hunter Series however.
