Fantastic Prequel/Sequel to the Dark Hunter Series
This story of Nick's early life and entree into the Dark Hunter world is more than any Dark Hunter fan could have dreamed of. It provides the details..Show More » of Nick's earliest experiences with Kirian and so much more. It is only to be expected that a book featuring the wise-cracking Nick would be funny, but many times it was outright hilarious and I laughed out loud--so don't listen to this while in a crowd with your iPod unless you don't mind people thinking you're downright crazy. We get introduced to a slew of wacky and lovable, not to mention hysterically funny characters. Bubba and Mark are two standouts because you can't help loving guys who deal guns and computers while hunting zombies on the side and aren't afraid to go after them with a rocket launcher or baseball bat, whichever is closest at hand. There is so much action and so much to laugh about it's almost impossible to stop listenning. Dark Hunter fans should know that this story isn't really a prequel in the strictest sense because... well, the ending explains so I won't.
One drawback, though not enough to lose a star, is that the narrator departs from previous pronunciation of Acheron, saying it like Ackeron, which aggravated me to no end. This may be correct, who knows, but it seems weird that Acheron would have the nickname Ash if the new pronunciation is correct. A huge drawback is that while Nick is definitely a Cajun, the narrator doesn't manage even a hint of an accent. Still, it's better to do no accent than a bad one. Also, he doesn't even hint at a Greek accent for Kirian and gives Ash a deep growly voice that doesn't feel like our Ash. Ah well, nobody's perfect I guess.
Whether you want more Dark Hunters or just a really good story with some really great action and huge laughs, Infinity is well worth the read.
More revelations, more powers and more surprising time twist that explain and confuse everything. I liked this book. If you liked Infinity, you will..Show More » like this one. This looks like its building to a amazing story for Nick. Plus Nick has a brother? Cool. This book is filled with awesomeness. The only way to be better is if the author had waited for fill three books and released them as one book.
This is another hit although the last 5 minutes at the ending was weird and I didn't like it. I love Sherrilyn Kenyon's stuff and Holter Graham is aw..Show More »esome. Sherrilyn truly has a way of writing that makes you want to be a better person. Nick is such a wonderful character, all of her characters are. Recommended to read in order after the Dark/Dream Hunter books which I love. The world Sherrilyn creates is so vivid and exciting, the stories pull me right in. There was some conflicting back stories from this book and the rest of her stories, but that does not deter from the enjoyment it gives. There were a couple of recording/editing issues with the sentence being cut off and repeat of some phrases although it wasn't bad.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this book very much after the ending of the last book, so it took me awhile to listen to this book. I'm glad I did,..Show More » Illusion was much better than I had anticipated. I think I'm starting to get a better picture of how SK is going to bring about combining the Dark Hunter series to the CON series in the future. I have my theories after this book. I'm also warming up to Kody, I haven't overly liked her in the previous stories. There are also some cool new characters that I'm excited about and hope they end up with their own book, preferably an adult genre instead of a YA genre. My favorite line form this book is "There is a reason why there is only a stairway to heaven when there is an entire highway to hell." Narrator is awesome as usual.
Nick is a poor fellow, feel bad for how things go for him all the time. This book felt more like a preparation for the net book, as important chara..Show More »cter development must happen. I do wonder how this series will go and how it will be, if it will be, connected to the other (future) world or what exactly.. Time travelling and changing the past is too complicated.
Good addition, funny as always, but I think the next one will be more important.
I am a longstanding Kenyon fan, so of course, I will pick up more from her. And, Holter Graham is one the best narrators in the business. I look for..Show More » books he narrates all the time. Together, they are one of the most addictive combos out there.
