Belinda Reviews: Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon
14 year old, Nick Gautier (pronounced Go-Shay), son of a dancer, poor as a church mouse, heart of gold, and smart mouth like whoa, has to learn how to harness his untested powers to avoid a life of horror and unimaginable cruelty.
It’s amazing what you can learn when you listen to your parents.
Unfortunately for Nick, his mate Madaug has been paying a little too much notice at the dinner table and created a race of live zombies out of the school football team. ~Not that there’s really that much difference before and after… Well, except for the whole wanting to eat your brains thing.~
In Infinity, there are undertones dealing with bullying, the abuse of power, the inequality between the wealthy and the poor, and breaking through stereotypes. Kenyon succeeds in giving her characters the attitudes they need to get through life, no matter what it throws at them. They’re believable and well grounded; I’m sure we all know someone like Nick. His quick wit is the cause of heaps of laugh out loud moments, especially when his sass sparks his Mother’s wrath.
The path to hell is paved with good intentions, let’s hope Nick can get a clue before his life goes to hell in a hand basket. This is a fast-paced ride, so hold on tight.
If you’ve been following the Dark-Hunter series you’ll be watching for characters who starred in the other books, to pop into this series.
Keep an eye out for the Barbeque Sauce wielding, Charonte Demon, Simi.
She has got to be my favorite Kenyon Character of all.
Future books will be electrifying in the ‘Chronicles of Nick‘.
Next in the Series is ‘Invincible‘, due in 2011.
