“Kenyon, whose paranormal adult novels include 50 New York Times best-sellers, brings characters from her Dark Hunter series to teens with a new YA series featuring Nick Gautier, who appears here as a 14-year-old. After arriving at school and discovering that the football team members have turned into classmate-eating zombies, Nick sets out to stop the attacks, and in one unforgettable night, he learns that he has a pivotal role to play in an unseen world. The plot serves mostly as a device to introduce a dizzying array of characters, and the prose is laden with breathless ellipses and weighty pronouncements: ‘Anyone could feel the unearthly power that bled from the pores of this particular . . . being.’ But Kenyon keeps the supernatural action careening along, and conversational banter lightens the tone. Kenyon has ratcheted down her tone from the adult series considerably: there are no steamy sex scenes or oaths stronger than ‘dang,’ and there is little gore. Be prepared for lots of interest in the series from young Twilight fans.”
