Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for INFINITY RING #1: A MUTINY IN TIME:

"Tight plotting, snappy dialogue . . . the story moves at a breathless pace." - Rick Riordan, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"A successful mix of action, adventure, and historical substance." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Children's Literature - Denise Hartzler
In book five of the "Infinity Ring" series, Kirby brings readers on a journey into Baghdad. While Europe is in the middle of the Dark Ages, Baghdad is the one city that is the epicenter of knowledge. Baghdad is populated with the most scholars, merchants and explorers from across the world. The main characters, Dak, Sera and Riq must find out what danger lies within the desert that threatens the world's greatest library from destruction. To save a book written by Aristotle and other books housed in the House of Wisdom Library, the team is faced with the dangers of the conqueror Khan Hulagu in 1258. It is a race against time and against fierce warriors. Riq is afraid that his encounter with the Underground Railroad has altered the future and he may not even exist. Sera is more strong and on a mission to prevent the Cataclysm while Dak senses that the other two have secrets but won't talk to him about them. These personal stressors put a lot of strain on the group while they are trapped in a city, which is soon to be pillaged by Mongols. But Kirby gets the team working together more so than in previous series and keep up the pace of the book. This is one of the fastest moving plots in this series and is highly recommended for reluctant readers. Fans of fantasy may read it within a day or over the course of several days but won't want to put this one down. The only downside of this book/series is that readers will have difficulty following the story if they have not read the first book in this series. Like all the "Infinity Ring" books, readers receive the Hystorian's Guide to unlock another adventure online. Reviewer: Denise Hartzler

    I'm very excited to read the 5th installment of the Infinity Rin

    I'm very excited to read the 5th installment of the Infinity Ring series! If this book is like any of the other books in the series, expect unforeseen twists  and turns and thrilling action that leaves the reader begging for more! If only the books were not so short! Expect a good read.
