ENTERTAINMENT: Kenyon’s Novel An Infinite Sci-Fi Classic
Sherrilyn Kenyon is a #1 New York Times Bestselling Author who is most famous for her “Dark Hunters” series with four different volumes. They were about immortal vampire slayers and their dramatic stories.
The series ended and in its wake “The Chronicles of Nick” was born.
“Infinity,” the first book in this follow up series, is about young 14 year old Nick Gautier (Go-shay). Being the child of a teenage mom who was abandoned by her parents upon the pregnancy, Nick hasn’t had the best life. He survives off of his mom being a stripper at night, and their house is pretty much a shack.
Despite how unfortunate her life has been, Nick’s mom has raised Nick right, though his extreme sarcasm gets on her nerves.
Everything in Nick’s life was going along normally until the night where his friends shot him. On the brink of death, a mysterious man comes out of nowhere and chases off Nick’s attacker saving his life. Upon his recovery, Nick starts seeing things in a whole different way. There are strange people known as Dark Hunters, demons out on the loose, and the football team’s captain is a werewolf.
Less than a day after his release from the hospital, a tragedy strikes and his schoolmates are suddenly turning into flesh-eating zombies that are out for his brains.
Nick’s going to need more than his newly found friends and his quick sarcasm to get out of this. He’ll have to realize something that will change his life forever.
“Infinity,” will keep readers wanting more. With all of its references to real-life people, places, and phrases put into Nick’s sense of humor, they’ll really be laughing out loud. All of the drama and problems occurring at once will keep the suspense rising as Nick’s chances diminish. It will make readers want to go to their local Barnes & Noble asking for “Invincible,” the next book in the Chronicles of Nick series, as soon as they finish that last page.
Sherrilyn Kenyon’s writing is brilliantly crafted and always a success. “Infinity” is definitely no exception.
