Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

When last seen in Mutiny in Time, best friend Dak Smyth and Sera Froste had just finished rescuing Christopher Columbus from a shipboard uprising that could have sent history hurdling in a dangerous new direction. Now these time travelers are locked in an even more dangerous situation: The Vikings are storming medieval Paris! Worse yet, Dak and Sera are caught on separate sides of the conflict and Dak is a prisoner of the invaders. A standalone sequel that carries the day.

Kirkus Reviews
Vikings and time machines, together again. "History is broken," a character said, back in the first Infinity Ring title (A Mutiny in Time, 2012). He might have said that spelling is broken. The main characters in the series are named Riq, Sera and Dak, and they work with the Hystorians to fix the timeline. Like all good fantasy series, these books come with a vocabulary list. The time travelers have to look out for the Breaks, the Remnants and the SQ. Readers who skipped the first book may never make sense of the jargon, but they really need to know only one fact: The SQ is an evil organization. It wants to take over the world. In fact, it wants to have taken over the world millennia ago. Now, in Volume 2, the best way for our heroes to defeat the SQ is to join a Viking war. They jump into the fight without being certain they're on the right side. This is typical of the logic in the book, and readers may enjoy the story just because it makes them feel smarter than the main characters. The book is a perfectly competent adventure story. It's hard to go wrong with Vikings. But if you asked a classroom full of students to write about a Viking and a time machine, most of them would come up with something more inventive. (Science fiction. 8-12)
Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Arriving in medieval Paris, three intrepid time travelers set out to fix yet another break in history. The Vikings are attacking and the course of battle must change or the breaks will lead to a cataclysm of natural disasters. Dak, ready and able to lecture on any aspect of history; Sera, a gifted scientist and mathematician; and Riq, a talented linguist, look for the local historian who will help them heal the break. Meanwhile, they battle the Vikings, Time Wardens, and the SQ in a race against time. The action-driven plot leaves little time for character development, but the twists and turns in the narrative keep the listener involved. Each book in this series is written by a different author. This second book offers too little back story. For example, what exactly is a break in history, what is a "remnant" and what are the roles of the SQ and Time Wardens, beyond being on the good side and bad side of things, respectively? The voice of the children does not quite match their stated age of eleven. While entertaining, it could be difficult for young listeners to relate to their advanced intellect. The narrator does a good job giving different voices to the characters, especially the adults. Some mouth noise in the recording is distracting. The story, however, should help to interest the target age group in history, giving ancient events color and drama. The listener is invited to log on to the website to play the Infinity Ring game. Unabridged on four compact discs, this book could also be used to encourage a reluctant reader to become interested in print books and would be a good addition to an upper elementary or middle school library or resource center. Book two in the "Infinity Ring" series. Reviewer: Hazel Buys

    This has a good beginning. The beginning isn't as good as Rick Riordan, but it's up there on my chart.

    Huh?

    I dont get it. How come in the first book it goes from the first begginings of the hope diamond and the revalutionary war to vikings? What about Dak's parents? And seriously, Dak, Sera and Raq? Who came up with those names? The first book was good. This looks good but im confused. HELP!

    Huh?

    Why are there different authors for each of the Infinity Ring books? Does the author for the book before give the next one it and they make a story that has to do with the end?
