At fourteen, 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.
As if 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?
Where to start? I have no idea because this book was so confusing, so weird and so strange I have no real feelings for it. All I can think about is. “what the hell did I just read?”
Infinity is about Nick and his sudden thrust into the supernatural world, the Dark-Hunter universe created by this author. Nick is actually the Malachai, a dark creature that will lead the dark army of strange creatures into the destruction of human kind and, perhaps, every good kind in the world…
Yah, alright, that sounds interesting and all but the book isn’t about that. The book is actually about how Nick is thrust into that world by fighting off zombies…
My first full book featuring zombies!
As soon as he saves a tourist couple from being robbed and is almost shot by his friends, everything goes crazy. And I mean it the literal crazy way.
Everyone in his school starts talking about weird things like demons, zombies and shapeshifters to people who say they are gods! And that’s when I lost myself in the book.
I did not understand a thing about this book, honest. I forced myself to finish it because I thought that in the end we would get some answers. I mean, we do get a few answers but not enough for me to really want to continue this series. And I only gave it 2 cups because Nick was a great character to read and I laughed out loud with him. But that was all, really.
