If you’ve read Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series, you’ll already be acquainted with Nick Gautier’s sarcastic, quick-witted, borderline annoying ways. He’s a kid who has a good grasp on who he is, but like all fourteen-year olds, he is still a little unsure of what is considered cool or not.

This is only my second YA read of 2012. But it is the first YA that I’ve enjoyed in awhile. I feel like because I read the Dark Hunter series first, that it only enhanced the reading experience of this book. You can definitely read this without having read the Dark Hunters, but it just seems easier to know Nick’s background before INFINITY. Ash and Kyrian make regular appearances. As does Nick’s mother, Cherise. Nick is always trying to get out of being grounded or suspended. But for a fourteen-year-old boy, he is a very well mannered one.

To spice things up, Kenyon introduces zombies into this series. I thought it was fresh and fun, and really fell into the trend in YA. Surprisingly, I was never bored while reading this book. I think that lies in Kenyon’s ability to keep the dialogue fun and never boring or repeating. Kenyon’s strength lies her ability to come up with witty comebacks. All in all, I enjoyed this YA a lot. Nick continues to be one of my favorite characters from the Dark Hunter series and I think I’ll continue with this series. Only more good things can come, right?

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

LOL Miki, you’re not too late. But I think book 3 was recently released. I want to read that also.

Thanks Timitra, I have been slacking on my YA reads. Bad Annie.

Hi Ann! I don’t read YA much, but I am such a fan of the DH series and Nick that it is great to see him and the other in their past. The only thing that worries me is how she will integrate what Nick does in the CON to the DH series. He is messing with fire, LOL!

I really like this series. As a fan of the DH series & Nick’s character, I had to read these. I know you can read them without reading the DH books, but I definitely like it better, having already read about Nick & the other adult characters in the book. Just like you said, it does enhance the reading experience. Hope you enjoy the rest of the series! 🙂

Hey Laurie! I think SK does a good job of staying true to Nick’s character. Hope you give it a shot!

I think having read the DH books first, you get more excited about this one. Plus seeing the familiar faces is a bonus that I love. Thanks so much Amber!

Hi Ann, I guess I wasn’t clear, but I have read the first 2 books, gotta get to Infamous. I agree, that as a fan of the series it’s a bonus to see them in a different light.
