    One thought on “Invincible”

    1. HOLY FRIGGIN' CRAP! - This book was mindbogglingly amazing! The second installment to the Dark-Hunter spin off young ydult series, Chronicles of Nick, the plot of Invincible was just as amazing as Infinity's. I couldn't help but fall in love all the more with this amazing character, Nick Gautier. He had captured my adoration and love all the way back to the first novel of the Dark-Hunter series, Night Pleasures, and he continued to do so off-and-on throughout the twenty three books of the series [...]

    2. This was another okay instalment, and once again the pace seemed quite slow. I can’t say I was all that impressed with what the story boiled down to at the end either, and Nick’s continued attitude and belief that he’s awesome was also annoying.6 out of 10

    3. Harry Potter meets the dark side minus the glasses and wand plus the "Fangs". lolThey say when you’re about to die, you see your entire life flash before your eyesThey lied. Lets see. how will I start this review. First, let me tell you that when I first read the Infinity I didn't know that its a spin off of the Dark Hunter series. Which I also just discovered that it had 20 books. Plus theres other spin off of the spin off of the book! How lovely!I might hit 40s before I finish reading them a [...]

    4. Look, don't read the review if you're like me and will be discouraged by what it says, marking little seeds of doubt inside of you and keeping you from being happy when you're reading the book. Read ONLY if you've already read Invincible, because I do not want to deter you from liking the Chronicles of Nick, book 2.This book was actually quite different from Infinity, so that gave me a nice reprieve whilst reading it.Invincible was a quicker read, which explained a lot of the events of the first [...]

    5. Yeah. That's how I felt the whole time.Major step down from Infinity.Hopefully Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) will be better.

    6. I don't know what to make of CoN. I liked the first book well enough but the momentum didn't seem to carry into book 2 for me. Are these books supposed to be full-on alternate reality for Nick, or is it a mix of reality and other situations? Someone please explain to me what's going on here? I'm confused by Nick knowing Simi in this series, when I'd assumed that (DH spoiler)(view spoiler)[he'd just met Simi when he slept with her in DH. (hide spoiler)] Or did he know her already in DH and I some [...]

    7. The Chronicles of Nick is Sherrilyn Kenyon's first young adult series and, personally, I think that Invincible is infinitely better than the first book of the series, Infinity. Don't get me wrong, I loved Infinity. However, aside from the fact that there was no sex and minimal swearing, Invincible felt less like a young adult novel to me. I may be the only one who feels that way, but there it is.That being said, I just want to say that I really like that Nick has different adventures and trials [...]

    8. You have to respect an author who's been #1 on the NY Times Bestseller list 12 times in 2 years.Invincible is book 2 in the Chronicles of Nick series, the YA spin-off from her Dark Hunter novels and it jumps in right where book 1 (Infinity) left off. And you really need to have read the first one for much of it to make sense.Aside from that, it's a beautifully irreverent adventure through the world Sherrilyn Kenyon has created, told through the eyes of a sarcastic 14 year old boy: Nick Gautier ( [...]

    9. Why do I stay on the Sherrilyn Kenyon gravy train? She keeps digging her hand into my wallet and I haven't slapped it away yet. I keep doing this to myself and then when it's over I kick myself in the butt. I understand this series is written for young adults, I do. But come on, how many young adults are reading this? I would venture to guess most of The Chronicles of Nick readers are Dark Hunter fans, or children of DH fans. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry but I have to exhale my frustration over this [...]

    10. Good that I'm a fast reader:) After finishing Infinity the day before I directly got Invincible downloaded. Again I love Nick the most, his strength and braveness and loyalty to his friends. I espeically love his humor and sarcasm although I could imagine if I'd met him for real I would be annoyed at some point *snickers* Well, anyway Invincible takes place just the next day after the end of Infinity. But Nick won't have time to breath - a new coach is in town and there is something about him th [...]

    11. Invencible.En éste libro encontrarán a un Nick mucho más consciente de los eventos sobrenaturales a su alrededor y que, de una manera u otra, tendrá que hacerle frente tanto por él mismo como por su madre y el mundo.Algunos de los personajes que nos gustaron en el primer libro quedan un poco atrás y el libro se centra en el descubrimiento de poderes y evolución de lazos. Como dije en mi reseña de Infinity, sí están buscando más del estilo Dark Hunter, no lo van a encontrar aquí pero, [...]

    12. The main character really annoyed me in this one.Just like book one, the pacing was slow, and it dragged. I tried reading something else alongside this, but it didn't help. (Although that book wasn't brilliant either.)Overall, A slow read.

    13. Invincible (Chronicles of Nick #2)by Sherrilyn KenyonJust when he thought things couldn’t get any worseNick 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 shape-shifters 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 [...]

    14. My mind is still reeling after reading this book. It has sooo many layers and multiple story lines. Not to mention all the characters!! And if you are a Dark Hunter fan, you really have to set aside what you think you know from what happens. And are the good guys still good guys or are they bad guys and who can you trust??I certainly don't envy Nick and what he has to go through and he never catches a breakch less any time to just process things. I think Infinity was interesting because we were [...]

    15. This second installment of the Chronicles of Nick wasn't as strong as the first and seemed less… full… somehow. I think it may be a matter of unreasonable escalation that the series is building as it goes along. We already know that Nick is destined to be the destroyer of the universe (only maybe not) from the first book. And we already know that diverse powers and influences are gathering to force him to endorse their various agendas. The problem I had was feeling like those forces were bui [...]

    16. I HAVE FAILED!I couldn't do it. I couldn't finish this book. Maybe I've grown up too much from reading the last or something. I dont EVEN know. The book couldn't hold my attention I couldn't even bring myself to finish it, and I usually like Sherrilyn Kenyon's books.Sherrilyn's writing of a teenage boy was laughable, and I cringed every time I had to read the lines "crapola" or some other weird slang words. I liked the idea though, much different than her more mature books, but it couldn't hold [...]

    17. SoI read book 3 and then this one both book 2 and 3 were confusing :P But they did start to make more sense as I kept reading and remembered what had happened in the first book and what was 'going to happen' in the third book.I am really enjoying this series. Nick is a fun character, even though he is a 14 year old boy. The supernatural element of the story is often quite confusing and hard to figure out but because it is a fast paced book, it is not long before the answers show up. The characte [...]

    18. Really enjoying the next volume of Chronicles of Nick. In this book, Nick gains a new teacher, Grim, who is teaching him divination and other arts. Discovers he doesn't have a knack for the pendulum sight but he can use a scrying mirror.He finds out the truth of his true nature from Caleb. There are numerous forces who wants him to turn evil because he is too good; he is also surrounded by his mother's love keeping his heart protected.New development: his mom is fired from her dancing job and no [...]

    19. “Darker than the first”Problem after the another. This is Nick’s life as he keeps his eyes wide open to his surroundings. Demons, Vampires, Were wolves and immortal people.The story is not what I expected to be but I really got entertained reading it. The characters are humorously funny in a darker way.I know this is awkward but I really enjoy Kyrian’s scenes although he doesn’t appear much but I really appreciate his concern to Nick like a big brother.I don’t want to spoil the whole [...]

    20. I'm so loving this series, Nick was always one of my favorite characters in the Dark Hunters series. SO it would go without reason that I would love him in his own series. But now I'm curious if that the things that are happening to Nick now is going to change the course for Nick in the Dark Hunter series??? Because in the Dark Hunters series he didn't know he was anything but human, and in TCoN he knows he isn't fully human, and that he is someone who will end up ending the world in his future. [...]

    21. This book was AMAZING.I fell in love with Nick in Infinity, but this book made me fall in love with him even more!! I loved his witty sarcasm and those one-liners that made me laugh out loud!The one thing that stood out most was Nicks relationship with his Mom. The love that shone through her words made my heart melt. :)The sarcasm in this book can get a little bit annoying, but it made me fall in love with the characters even more - if that was even possible! All in all, this was an amazing boo [...]

    22. I am a little conflicted by this book. It picked up right where the first one finished, which was good once I recalled what had happened in the first book, and more importantly, how it had ended. The plot twists were interesting, along with a slight other storyline that teased its way through, leaving the reader guessing. The climax felt awfully rushed to me, and the resolution, sadly, resolved nothing. However, given the long game the author is playing with the storyline, I think I will read th [...]

    23. This is the second installment in the Chronicles of Nick. I love Sherrilyn's writing and the sarcasm/wit infused in her books. This series is a young adult prequel of sorts to her Dark Hunter series.

    24. achingly average. I don't mean that to sound as bad as it does. The story was enthralling enough to keep me interested but it came across a juvenile and the story repeats itself.I've picked up book before book 1 but I can't say I'm gutted. I'm in no rush to get book 3 was good. ish

    25. I listened to this book on audio CD. The narration was fine. The narrator did a good job with accents, although many of the characters in New Orleans have no accent whatsoever. While that makes sense for the preternatural characters, it does not make sense for the human denizens of this area. This is the second book in this series, the Chronicles of Nick. According to some web research which I did, this book is a prequel to Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. The Chronicles of Nick is aimed at a teen a [...]

    26. In the second Dark Hunters book Nick is still the same age, still in the same school and it's just a continuation of the night after the zombie attack. Nick's Mom gets a new job and things start happening from there. Nick receives some training. The main bad guy in this book is the new football coach. Nick is sarcastic and witty but also quite whiny and adolescent. I look forward to him growing some scruples and thinking before speaking & acting. Right now he is just so stupid and naive. He [...]

    27. Review posted here: offbeatvagabond/2012/02/book-review-invincible-chronicles-ofml Oh my goodness, Invincible was just as good as the first one. I finished this audiobook immediately after Infinity a month ago. This story is still stuck in my head and book 3, Infamous, comes out in March! Another book I know will be added to my favorites list. Invincible picks up immediately where Infinity left off. Nicks has recently found out everyone he knows is some supernatural creature of some kind. He now [...]
