Series: Chronicles of Nick #1
Published by St. Martin's Griffin
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?

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!
