When I heard Nick's back-story would be told in a Young Adult series I promised myself I would buy INFINITY and my reading experience would decide whether or not I would continue buying and reading this series. I'm not an avid reader of the YA genre and the only reason I bought INFINITY was because it was connected to the Dark-Hunter series and the fact that Nick is still one of my favorite characters. This was my mind-set before I understood that the Chronicles of Nick would also reveal secrets regarding characters such as Cherise and especially Jaden and Jared. It makes reading this chronicle more of a necessity if I want to understand the whole Dark-Hunter arc of Jaden.
When I received my copy of INFINITY my everlasting curiosity spurred me on to crack the spine and I began to read immediately. I met Nick as we got to know him in the early days of the Dark-Hunter series, only a bit younger. His mother, Cherise, is a stripper trying to make a living for herself and her son in New Orleans. She teaches him to be honorable, but when your peers know what your mother does for a living, and you have a shirt on your back with fishes in neon colors, it is hard to get by in high school. It is why Nick cloaks himself in a devil may care attitude and give lip the moment someone makes a snarky comment. However, the fairer sex also has his undivided attention and his desire to charm them is present at the core.Read more ›
You can tell that this book is aimed towards young adults as the writing style is alot more simplified, however I found that it didnt detract from the storyline at all. It was nice to just read without having my head ache afterwards from trying to figure out what was happening!
I really enjoyed seeing characters which appear in the dark hunter series as their younger couterparts- especially Tabitha. You also meet new characters - Bubba and Mark are my favourite as a couple of men who own a gun and computer store where Nick works for a while. They have all the best lines and add most of the humour to the book, especially when they get together with Nick.
The only criticism I have for the first novel was that it was a bit short, I was able to read it in just under 2 hours.
Other reviewers have mentioned that you get hints about developing storylines in the dark hunter series from the Chronicles of Nick and its true - I won't put spoilers in here though so you'll just have to read it yourself!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book despite my initial reservations due to the young age of the hero. Yes Nick the adult is known to fans of this series, and yes we know that in the "Dark-Hunter" books he faces some tragic moments ahead, but as a teenage hero does he stand his own ground against a more mature cast? He most certainly does. Nick's sarcasm and verbal sparring with other characters (particularly Acheron and Kyrian), his interaction with Simi and his gung-ho attitude towards danger; especially when his beloved mother appears threatened, make him a perfect fit in the kick -a** world of the Dark-Hunters.
SK provides her familiar thrills and kills in a fast paced adventure as Nick begins to understand he is more than human. New characters are introduced, whilst some familiar faces crop up such as Tabitha, some of the Peltier clan and a couple of Squires; in fact it was interesting catching a glimpse of their teenage lives as well as Nick's. Lastly SK provides a real twist to the story leaving me eager for book 2 "Invincible" due for publication in Feb 2011. We know Nick's future, but SK always has something up her sleeve and continues to surprise ;)
