“Alternating tones, pacing, and inflections to voice all the characters, Graham smoothly narrates this action-packed, suspenseful tale, a must-listen for series fans.” – Booklist

“[A] publishing phenomenon…[Sherrilyn Kenyon is] the reigning queen of the wildly successful paranormal scene. . .Just one example of arguably the most in-demand and prolific authors in America these days.” –Publisher’s Weekly

"Kenyon's writing is brisk, ironic and relentless imaginative.  These are not your mother's vampire novels." --Boston Globe

"[An] engaging read." --Entertainment Weekly

More About the Author

The #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon, who is proud of her mixed Cherokee heritage, lives a life of extraordinary danger... as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she's found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than thirty million copies of her books in print, in over one hundred countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with too.

Her books appear regularly at the coveted #1 bestselling spot. This extraordinary bestseller continues to top every genre she writes. Her current series include: The Dark-Hunters, The League, Chronicles of Nick and Beladors. Since 2004, she has placed more than 80 novels on the New York Times list in all formats including manga.

Her Lords of Avalon novels have been adapted by Marvel and her Dark-Hunter novels are now a New York Times bestselling manga published by St. Martins, and her Chronicles of Nick series is adapted by Yen Press. Her Dark-Hunters and Chronicles of Nick series are both soon to be major motion picture releases.

Infamous, by Sherrilyn Kenyon pretty much says it all.. who needs to actually write a review? But I will try. When JK Rohling wrote Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, I hated it. It wasn't because it was dark, I got that, it wasn't poorly written, it wasn't about the fact that the world was out to get Harry, No. It was about the fact that 15 year old Harry had a huge attitude. It took me forever to realize that it was the only realistic thing in the book. I had a 15 year old male child at the time and it was like reading a mirror description of what I had at home. Why speak of Harry Potter in a review about Nick Gautier? Well because he too is 15 and Sherry got it oh so right. Yes, his trademark, Nick Gautier attitude is there but so is this dark, seething, brooding male of the human species.

Infamous is much darker than the previous two books and we see Nick's battle really gearing up. His relationship with Ambrose starts to make sense and we begin to get a peak at how Sherry is going to combine this Nick with the Nicky we have already met and fell in love with the early days of the Dark Hunter Series. We get a lot of information in this book and it leaves the rollicking good time concept of the first two books. But that makes sense, Nick is growing both as an adolescent human and as the Malachai.. The good news, even though it is most indeed darker than the previous books it in no way compares to Sherrie's offering to suffering and despair, Archeron, although it has it's moments. I suppose to really understand a character of such depth that Nick is turning out to be we must first understand how they came to where they are. Fortunately for us, we get Nick in pieces instead of all rolled up in one book.

Format: Hardcover
First Impressions: I was really excited to read Infamous! I'm a huge fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon and I admire her so much as a writer, plus I am pretty sure I've read almost all of her books. The Dark Hunters series is one of my favorites, as is The Chronicles of Nick. She is another author I would love to have the chance to meet someday and have her sign all of the books I have written by her.

First 50 Pages: I feel as though Infamous started out slower than the previous two books in this series, but it quickly picked up the pace just a few chapters into the story. Like with her other novels, Infamous is action packed with a lot of emotion and great quality writing. Nick even begins to grow up a little bit in this book, since he is now (finally) fifteen. I also think that the plot is starting to merge with the adult Dark Hunters books, as more characters from those books are starting to pop up! Yay!

Characters & Plot: I'll just come out and say it right not that this wasn't my favorite book in the series so far, and most of it stems from the themes and one particular character, which I'll uncover in a little bit.

Infamous begins with yet another disaster at the school, with rumors and secrets flying all over the place. There is some major gossip going on as well as some serious cyber bullying. As if zombies and demons aren't enough to worry about, right? Nick tries and tries to make everything right again, but he keeps getting put into difficult situations he really has no control over. Trouble just seems to follow Nick around like a lost puppy, and unfortunately, he has to deal with the consequences. Let me rephrase that. Nick is forced to deal with crazy-as-a-bat mother.

I know that some people really love Cherise, but she drives me bonkers.

Format: Audio CD
Nick Gautier is walking the fine line between good and evil. With both sides conspiring to win his soul. This is Ambrose's last shot at changing his fate, and not all of Nick's friends are really his allies. Of course frenemies aren't so bad when you own father's out to kill you, demons are trying to enslave you, and your mom seems hellbent on ruining your love life and street cred with awful shirts and infinite groundings.

When trouble comes to his school in the form of cyber bullying, Nick makes it his new mission to find out who's behind it and stop them. But Gautier is going to have to be careful, making the wrong choice could cost him his life, his soul, or the people he loves.

Sherrilyn Kenyon is not only taking on the plight of good and evil to save or destroy the world, she's also tackling current trends in bullying, and the always popular parent/teen topics of sex, drugs, and drinking. Basically Nick might be too much of a saint for his age, with a mother who really doesn't deserve him.

This book spent a lot of time trying to lay out and redefine Nick's relationship with his mom. I found this dynamic as frustrating as Nick would, only I didn't love her in the end, no matter how much Kenyon tried to redeem her. His relationships with Caleb and Kody on the other hand were refreshing in between the verbal or physical bashing Nick took in this one.

Infamous started off great and ended with a bang. It wasn't as exciting to me as the past installments, but that was mainly because the author spent a lot of time laying the ground work for the series. The series is starting to take shape, but the main story plot seemed loosely threaded throughout the book to string together the bullying aspect.
