To Infinity

Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Fourteen year old Nick doesn’t have much in his life. Lucky enough to get a scholarship at a decent school, he doesn’t really have friends there. This isn’t helped by the gaudy, secondhand clothes his mother sometimes makes him wear. But he would do anything for his mother…even face ridicule for the bright tropical shirt.

When a series of events happen to him, Nick finds himself immersed deep in the world of zombies, demons, Dark-Hunters, and other supernatural creatures. What he doesn’t suspect, however, is that he is more deeply involved than almost anyone can imagine.

This spinoff of her popular Dark Hunter series, written for teen audiences, Kenyon introduces us to a teenage Nick. With a personality pretty much the same as his adult version, the super-sarcastic teen manages to deal with the blows life has thrown at him, all while maintaining what is most important to him.

I think what I like most about this book is that, due to its audience, there is no cliché sex scenes that are found in the Dark Hunter books. Filled with purely action, the book will appeal to audiences regardless of gender.

Plus Simi is part of the story. I love Simi. She is good demons.

I also like that there is more about Nick’s father. I don’t want to give away anything, but it is great to read more about that missing part of his life.

That I have to wait for the sequel!
