This story of Nick's early life and entree into the Dark Hunter world is more than any Dark Hunter fan could have dreamed of. It provides the details of Nick's earliest experiences with Kirian and so much more. It is only to be expected that a book featuring the wise-cracking Nick would be funny, but many times it was outright hilarious and I laughed out loud--so don't listen to this while in a crowd with your iPod unless you don't mind people thinking you're downright crazy. We get introduced to a slew of wacky and lovable, not to mention hysterically funny characters. Bubba and Mark are two standouts because you can't help loving guys who deal guns and computers while hunting zombies on the side and aren't afraid to go after them with a rocket launcher or baseball bat, whichever is closest at hand. There is so much action and so much to laugh about it's almost impossible to stop listenning. Dark Hunter fans should know that this story isn't really a prequel in the strictest sense because... well, the ending explains so I won't.
One drawback, though not enough to lose a star, is that the narrator departs from previous pronunciation of Acheron, saying it like Ackeron, which aggravated me to no end. This may be correct, who knows, but it seems weird that Acheron would have the nickname Ash if the new pronunciation is correct. A huge drawback is that while Nick is definitely a Cajun, the narrator doesn't manage even a hint of an accent. Still, it's better to do no accent than a bad one. Also, he doesn't even hint at a Greek accent for Kirian and gives Ash a deep growly voice that doesn't feel like our Ash. Ah well, nobody's perfect I guess.
Whether you want more Dark Hunters or just a really good story with some really great action and huge laughs, Infinity is well worth the read.

Okay. So I'm seriously having a hard time rating this book. The author is a talented writer with a witty sense of humor and fun characters, but there is so much going on, and the book is so all over the place I just feel completely lost after reading it. After researching information about the author I think this is supposed to be based on another series? That's grand and all, but what about those of us who haven't read the other series? I just feel . . . lost. At the beginning I loved it, mid way I was scratching my head, the end there were so many characters I couldn't remember who was who.
Sigh . . . I was so into this at first and I feel disappointed. I might try to read the other books by Kenyon so I might be able to understand this series better because I liked the writing so much.
