The Book Cellar
This is book number 1 in the Chronicles of Nick series.
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.
Like 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?

“The imagination of Kenyon is a wonder to behold and an amazing place to visit!” —Romantic Times (Top Pick!)
“I have to admit that at the conclusion of the epilogue, I was already anticipating the next installment of the series...Mr. Graham was able to portray Nick beautifully and catch all of the eccentricities that abound in Infinity.” —TeensReadToo.com
“While action abounds, listeners are never sure who the good guys are and whether they should be rooting for Nick. Holter Graham successfully paces the action to keep things moving and gives voice to a myriad of non-human characters, most often in life-threatening, over-the-top situations, easily switching from the New Orleans lilt of Bubba to the sweet cadences of Nekoda, Nick's would be love interest.” —School Library Journal
