The Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon


Infinity is the first book in this exciting trilogy which is s geared toward teen boys, but can certainly be enjoyed by all. After a violent encounter and a short hospital visit, smart mouthed Nick Gautier is introduced to a whole new, or old world, depending on whom you ask. A world where action is nearly nonstop and dangers are aplenty. He discovers zombies, demons, immortals, ghosts... and girls. He doesn't know it, but he's about to become the main character in a battle to end all battles. The series continues with Invincible. The question remains, however, which side will Nick be on? Good or Evil? We will find out in the final book Infamous of this series which can't be published too soon. I can't wait! But, I will have to--March 2012 will get here eventually.

This young adult trilogy has an interesting origin. After reading the first two books of this series I wanted see if Sherrilyn Kenyon had writen anything else. First I discovered four graphic novels which take place in Nick Gautier's world and are written for young adults. I read and liked them very much. Then I searched for more and was very surprised to discover that Kenyon's main audience up until now is adult fantasy romance (very steamy romance) readers. Nick Gautier is a minor character in a series called Dark Hunter. What's more interesting is that the young adult graphic novels are a toned down version of the first three adult fantasy romance novels in that series. I'm curious to see if Kenyon continues to write young adult novels or not. We will have to wait and see.
