Chronicles of Nick #2
Book 1: Infinity
Pages [hardcover]: 420
Opening Lines: They say when you’re about to die, you see your entire life flash before your eyes. They lied.
I’m too young, too smart and too good-looking to die.
First Thoughts: I really enjoyed the first book, Infinity, and luckily my library had the sequel-on the day it was released! Thank goodness for public libraries!
Favorite Characters: Nick & Bubba
Nick Gautier’s day just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, he survived the zombie attacks, only to wake up and find himself enslaved to a world of shapeshifters and demons out to claim his soul.
His new principal thinks he’s even more of a hoodlum than the last one, his coach is trying to recruit him to things he can’t even mention and the girl he’s not seeing, but is, has secrets that terrify him.
But more than that, he’s being groomed by the darkest of powers and if he doesn’t learn how to raise the dead by the end of the week, he will become one of them…
I finished this book in just a few days. I was incredibly happy to see that my library had it on the day it was released! That’s way I love public libraries.
The characters in this sequel were as fascinating and funny as they were in Infinity. Once again it was hard to keep track of all of them, but I did find it easier as time went on. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m confident I’ll know everyone by the time the next book is released.
I really can’t wait to read more of this series. I just put the book down half an hour ago, and already I’m itching for more. I’ll have to read The Dark-Hunters series, the original series, and see if that is as wonderful as I’m hoping it will be.
Nick is as sarcastic as ever in Invincible. I love his comebacks and remarks-even if they do get him in trouble with his mother. I like how he stays true to himself, even if that happens to put him in greater danger. I think he’s a great teen lead and can’t wait to see him continue to grow.
I give Invincible 5/5 stars. I ended up liking it even more than the first book of the Chronicles of Nick.
