Trick or Treat Day 3 with Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon

This giveaway is now closed!
Hardcover, 464 pages
Published May 25th 2010 by St. Martin's Griffin 
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?--Goodreads

The Signing
If you have followed my blog long enough you know that I'm a HUGE Sherrilyn Kenyon fan. I absolutely love her Dark-Hunter series and The League series. I am ashamed to say that I have not yet had a chance to read Infinity and the rest of the Chronicles of Nick series but I have them all at home and will get to them as soon as I can. 
Sherrilyn Kenyon's signing was very memerable and super long because of the amount of fans who showed up. I do have video of the signing that is about twenty minutes long but I can't share it with you for a number of reasons but I wish I could. There were tons of question about all 14 of her series but the most exciting discussion was about the following:

Amber Entertainment has signed a partnership with prolific paranormal novelist Sherrilyn Kenyon to develop and produce films, television and webisodes based on her books.
First project to be developed is “Chronicles of Nick,” based on the young adult series. In the first book, “Infinity,” 14-year-old Nick Gautier discovers that the football team has been turned into zombies, sets out to stop the attacks and learns he has a key role in an unseen world.--Dark-Hunter.com

I can't wait to see how everything turns out! Nick is a very prominent and important character in the Dark-Hunter series where we see him as an adult. It's going to be interesting to see how they portray him at a teen.

  1. Even though most people think they are played out, I still love Vampires the most. There are just so many different things you can do with vampires more than any other paranormal creature!

    I loved the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. They are some kick-butt vamps that stay true to the old rules of vampism!

  2. Even though I was really sick about reading vampires after Twilight and all and didn't want to pick up another vampire book, I did. Vampire Academy is Amazing!, and they made vampires cool again, in my eyes at least. So yeah I'm going to have to say Vampires!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I love lots of different paranormal creatures, but I think that my biggest surprise was cheering for Tommy and Phoebe in Daniel Waters Generation Dead. They seem to be gaining popularity if books like Dearly Departed and Die For Me are any indication. I love how cheering for a well written zombie feels like scratching a misquito bite -- you know you shouldn't but you just can't help it.

  4. I love reading about ghosts, but particularly about people who see and communicate with them, not necessarily about the ghosts themselves. The Darkest Power trilogy by Kelley Armstrong has one of the best "ghost whisperer" characters, Chloe, and the ghosts she talks to are pretty diverse, some are vindictive and some are nice and don't necessarily want anything from Chloe.

    My favorite paranormal character to read about is absolutely the ZOMBIE. I say this because it lends itself to such a variety of plausible scenarios - all of which are deliciously survival vs overwhelming odds.

    The Reapers Are The Angels best exemplifies the
    zombie character/survival plot.

  6. Hm, out of all of them? I'd say vampires, but only if they're very well written. For example, I think Richelle Mead has something great going with Vampire Academy. Her characters are very diverse and well characterized.

  7. I think I like Vampires the most and Anne Rice's books are obviously the first choice for portraying Vampires the best. However, if I choose a newer series I really like both the House of Night Series by PC Cast and the Blue Bloods series by Melissa De La Cruz

  8. That is a really good (and hard) question! I'd say either vampires or faeries...I like Richelle Mead's twist on vampires, and for faeries, I think The Iron Fey or the Wondrous Strange series by Lesley Livingston are the best representatives.

  9. Vampires, the vampire diaries

    ReplyDelete
  10. Okay... I hate to sound cliche but... vampires are pretty nice creatures, I'm not going to lie. I love the Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. Mostly because she gives us different takes on vampires that are popular. She gives us the original cruel-type vampires (Strigoi). Then, she gives us the "pretty vampires with awesome powers" (Moroi). Finally, she just gives us the freaking bad ass vamps (Dhampir). But the series that I really love is HON by P.C. Cast. I love how she kinda grounds the vamps to seem normal and somehow relatable to us. Though, they are vampires AND have to drink blood AND have superior strength AND are extremely beauty AND will live for an extremely long time... they go to school, they deal with issues I freaking deal with (and I have no life lol) as well. So I just love the fact that even though they are vampires, I can still relate to them in some way. Then there's the action...

  11. I know people are tired of vampires but they are still by far my favorite, not that i don't appreciate werewolf's and other paranormals too. My favorite vampires are the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter vampires by Laurell K. Hamilton. I like my vampires to be seen in a sort of good light or at least more like humans with the good and the bad and not just all villains.

  12. I absolutely love paranormal creatures like vampires and werewolves, but right now I think there's a few too many of them out there. So, I think witches are probably my favorite at the moment, simply because they are humans who just dabble in the magic. Of course, I do love me a good healthy dose of faeries too (good and evil) alike. I think the nasty little buggers are the most interesting, lol.

  13. I definitely read about vampires the most. Although I do love Black Dagger Brotherhood, Dark Hunter, Midnight Breed, I think the series that best represents them is the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. (Southern Vampire Mystery). Those vampires are a little scarier and the books are great!

  14. I love to read about Werewolves and I think Twilight did a great job in bringing them to the forefront of the paranormal genre. Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Werewolves due to my first werewolf book love, Blood and chocolate. There have been many since such as Alice Borchardt and Laurell K. Hamilton (who also introduced me to other shifter breeds).

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, boy...that's a tough question. I love all things paranormal! Let me throw out a few: Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters and Were Hunters, Gena Showalter's demon Lords, Cynthia Eden's vampires and werewolves, Pamela Palmer's Feral Warriors and Christine Warren's Others...

  19. I love them all, but my all time favorite is vampires, but not the kind that sparkle.

  20. My favorite paranormal books are the ones about ghosts. They're always so spooky and I love how unlike werewolves and vampires, there are no rules when it comes to ghosts! One of my favorites would have to be Deception by Lee Nichols.

  21. I would have to go with werewolves. I love Kelly Armstrong's Otherworld wolves especially Elena and Clay.

  22. I'm pretty sure Greek gods and goddesses are included as paranormal beings, and my favorite example of this is Solstice by PJ Hoover!!

  23. I don't really have a favorite, but I love the Shade series and the Nightshade series. Shade has a really neat twist on ghosts and Nightshade is a great werewolf twist :) They don't represent the traditional ideas of ghosts and werewolves, they kind of reinvent them.

  25. I want to say dragons as they amaze me the most, but I don't know any good books about them... So I will have to go with vampires, and say Vampire Academy.

  26. Hi! Wow, this is a hard question, I used to love reading about vampires and there were just so many different representations of vampires, but the one that I loved the most is probably The Vampire Academy Series vampires. I think that series represents the vampires pretty well and how they can fit into the modern world just as easily. BUT, now I love to read about faeries, the only book series I've read with faeries in them so far is The Iron Fey Series and I just loved learning everything about them in that series and it represents faeries pretty well and their world (:

  33. Personally I like Faeries ... If done correctly it's incredibly interesting, plus you usually get werewolves, vampires and other beings in the story too. And I really do enjoy them all.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Vampires are my go to paranormals and nobody does them better than Christine Feehan. There are probably a dozen more authors I read that do great vamps but the have to stand up to the Feehan test.

    ReplyDelete
  35. My favorite would be Vampires always loved them. I love vampire academy by Richelle Mead she has always been my favorite I love the story and just got better with every book. I love Rose and Dimitri both can kick butt!

  37. Good Lord, that is hard to answer. It is a tie between vampires and werewolves.

    Best representatives for vampires are the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and the Blood Curse series. They are hot, badass and they are men :)

    For werewolves. the Psy/Changeling series and the Mercy Thompson series. Both series are sexy and impossible to put down.

    Great giveaway, I just got the audiobook for this from the library. Hopefully, I will be able to actually read it. Thank you so much.

  45. I think I'd have to say werewolves are my favorite but as to who does it best? I like the variety! I like that sometimes they can change at will and sometimes only on a full moon or only the three days of the full moon cycle...I like different stuff so I like all of it. The only kind of werewolves I don't like is the evil kind.
