I don't know what the author intends for this series, whether this will become a supplement to her Dark Hunter stories or if she is writing a young adult series for a teen readership. She is filling in a lot of the questions about Nick and his relationship with Archeron. In fact the few pages devoted to the meeting of Ash and Nick are charming and go a long way toward reveal the beginning of their improbable friendship.
My only objection is this was published, and priced, as a hardcover book but there is far too much white space between the lines to fill up the pages and justify the price. In fact it is probably one of the shortest of the Dark Hunter novels and can easily be read in a couple of hours. But I did enjoy it.

Nick can't go through with the plan and ends up saving the elderly couple in question. In retaliation, the boys beat him senseless. A man emerges from the shadows to save him and accompanies him to the hospital. As Nick can't pay the bills, the man makes him a better deal than the guys had - he'll pay the bills and Nick will work for him.
On the first day of employment, strange creatures attack the house. Nick isn't sure what's happened, but he now knows that there are other beings in the world. The man turns out to be a Dark Hunter - someone who's been alive for hundreds of years who protects humans from the others.
Now that the veil has been lifted, Nick sees the world differently. Just as he's coming to terms with his newfound knowledge, zombies take over his school. The zombies keep coming after him. How much longer can Nick keep them from attacking him while saving the ones he loves and keeping his mother out of the loop?
INFINITY is the start of a new series from Ms. Kenyon's Dark-Hunter world, aimed towards young adults. Nick can't seem to catch a break, which made me root for him all the more. He's always in trouble, in danger, meeting new people, or using his greatest survivor skill - sarcasm.

First off, I'd like to let you know this is the first book from Sherrilyn Kenyon I ever read and I loved it. The story happens in a very special and secretive world where odd creatures roams the streets at night. While I had no problem following the main plot, I have to say those creatures are still rather fuzzy in my mind. I guess it would be clearer if I've read her adult series (which I will do!), and even though I would've loved more details, it didn't stop me from enjoying the book.
Kenyon introduced some very mysterious characters in the book and I think she is intentionally keeping us in the dark regarding their intentions. It seems like every characters and their neighbors are paranormal creatures and I'm really looking forward to discover more about them. And there is many characters! I suffer from what I call "goldfish memory" which is pretty bad memory so at times I was getting confused with characters names, but it's really all my fault lol. I loved Nick, I think he perfectly portrayed a 14 years old and I appreciated his sarcasm. I was caught laughing out loud more than one time reading that book, and while he is funny he also has his serious and determined side. He is balancing between good and bad and I think it added an edge to his character.
Simi was one of the characters a really loved. I don't really know what's her deal but she's a demon talking about herself in third person and has a fixation about eating everything - and mostly everyone - with BBQ sauce. Caleb was also great, here's a quote from him I particularly liked:
"... Where are the cops when you need them?"
Caleb snorted. "Probably eating beignets. As the old saying goes, when the seconds count, the police are just minutes away."
Overall, Infinity was a great read and a good introduction the the Dark Hunters world. I will definitely read Sherrilyn's adult series and I am looking forward to the second book in the Chronicles of Nick series: Invincible, due February 2011. In a sentence, Infinity is an action-packed story with great wits and humor wrapped in a paranormal package. I loved every page of it and strongly recommend it!
