At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends. . .until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.
Nick quickly learns that the human world is only a veil for a much larger and more dangerous one: a world where the captain of the football team is a werewolf and the girl he has a crush on goes out at night to stake the undead. But before he can even learn the rules of this new world, his fellow students are turning into flesh eating zombies. And he’s next on the menu.
As if starting high school isn't hard enough. . .now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chainsaw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, all without getting grounded or suspended. How in the world is he supposed to do that?
Nick Gautier is your everyday high school student. That is, if your average high school student has to deal with zombies trying to eat him. And all I got was bullies so I feel definitely cheated out of a zombie apocalypse. But that's not all yet. After almost being killed in an alley, Nick founds a whole new world right on the streets of New Orleans. The world of the Dark-Hunters, warriors who save humanity every night fighting demons. Soon enough, Nick finds himself knee-deep in trouble because now, more and more students are turning into zombies and he and his friends have to find out who or what is causing this before it's too late.. And he ends up grounded.

From the first time I heard about Infinity, I was highly intrigued. Kenyon sort of goes back in time and tells the story of Nick Gautier growing and how he became part of the Dark-Hunter world. Having read the Dark-Hunter books, Nick always interested me as a character so I was so excited to read his story. The plot is definitely really creative but at times, I didn't feel like I was reading a young adult book. This is not necessarily a bad thing though because Nick and company are great characters and I loved reading about them through a different point of view. 

Overall, I highly enjoyed reading Infinity and the story stayed in my head weeks after I had finished the book. A wonderful set of characters and a fun, action-packed scenes that make for a great read and I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment!

Lush Rating: 4!
