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?
BE PREPARED FOR SPOILERS UNDER THE CUT
Honestly, I thought I was going to not like this book seeing as though I am terribly afraid of zombies but I really did love this book!
The number one reason why I loved it was because of the humor. I’ve laughed at this book countless times, it’s kind of embarrassing.
Nick Gautier (which took me a looonnng time to get used to saying it right. GO-SHAY) is the funniest, sassiest, 14-year-old like ever. It’s really quite sad, something bad is going to happen to him and I’m going to cry because I’m already attached to him and I love him. He is just a little ball of amazing.
Throughout this book, though, I was very confused. Though I hope all of my questions are answered by the end of this series.
So Kyrian is a god? or is that Acheron? Why does Artemis need servents like Dark-Hunters? Who really is Nekoda? Why is she so ‘evil’? If Ambrose is Nick from the future, how the heck is he in the past? Why did Ambrose say he was Adrian’s brother? Is Adrian (Nick’s dad) really evil? Can Bubba and Mark see Caleb? Why does Caleb serve Adrian? HOW THE HECK DO YOU PRONOUNCE MALACHAI?!?!?!
I really do have so many questions, but I am excited to get book 2, Invincible.
Now let’s talk.
I really liked some other characters, like Simi, Caleb, and Nick’s grimoire (even though It’s not really a character). That book is just complete sass! It’s pretty hilarious.
I love how Simi is a demon who loves barbecue sauce, In my mind I was just imagining Star Fire from Teen Titans because of how she talks.
Caleb seems pretty dang attractive to me, in my mind I picture Logan Lerman, YUM! He’s just like Nick, kind of.
But I obviously love Nick the most. I imagine him just like the guy on the cover, so that’s great.
I totally recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy! I really enjoyed it and am excited to see where this series will go.
