Overview: 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?
My Thoughts: It took me a while to get into this book and after I did. I'm still left unsure. First off this boy, Nick is a smart mouthed jerk. Seriously, how can anyone treat their mother the way he does. He never listens and is always in trouble. I understand that she isn't a role model anyone would want, considering she dances for money. But really he could treat her a lot better than he does.
Then Zombies begin, is all I can say anyway. One day he shows up to school and learns that one of the kids attacked another and tried to eat their brains out and then a teacher attacked a student.
Things in town get weirder when everyone stars turning into zombies and at first they think it's because of a video game but it turns out that they re all after Nick and they want him to do their evil bidding. Really gross if you ask me.
To save the day Nick and his friends use a charged cattle prod to turn the zombies they didn't kill back into normal people.....YAY
