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.
What a fantastic addition to the series illusion was. It started with the ending of the previous book and it was so funny, actually I was at the off..Show More »ice and couldn't stop myself from laughing throughout this book... Nick Nick Nick... it feels like you can't get a break . Characters get developed here and Nick gets to know so much and shows what he can do. New characters get added to the series, interesting ones as well.
My favourite chapters in Illusion were the ones were Nick and Acheron chat, so funny!!!!
And in every addition to this series I get so convinced that Holter Graham is a gooood narrator. He really did a great job with this book as the rest too.
Looking forward to the next book. Things will get more and more interesting now.
