Children's Literature - Suzie Davis
“Infinity Ring” fans are in for an action packed surprise! Just when readers thought the adventure was over, Dak and Sera are back at it, attempting to save the world from total annihilation. This time around though, they are the unsuspecting individuals responsible for the anomalies in history. How are they going to repair the damage when there are no Hystorians around to help? Even their own friendship is in question when they notice each other displaying uncharacteristically odd behaviors. How can they solve the world’s problems when they cannot even trust each other? Will they be able to defeat their enemy once and for all? Readers will not be disappointed by the twists and turns Eternity takes and how it concludes the series…or does it? This is is the eighth book in the “Infinity Ring” series. De La Peña does a remarkable job in keeping the storyline flowing and suspenseful. Middle Readers who enjoyed previous volumes in this series will certainly enjoy this. Using the Hystorian’s guide included with the book, readers can visit Scholastic’s website, type in the code to unlock the mission and attempt the Hystorian’s Challenge to see if they have what it takes to save the future. Reviewer: Suzie Davis; Ages 9 to 12.

To some people, Infinity Ring: Eternity can look like a struggle to close seemingly endless portals in time, or simply a journey requiring teamwork, trust, and keeping friendships close together. Nonetheless, this epic dystopian time-travel novel tells a whole lot more interesting tale of buddies Dak Smyth and Sera Froste, the pair who fixed the Great Breaks and set the world on the right track. This tale also reveals that they still have a lot more to complete, and now the earth’s balance settles on the pair of heroes but this time they might not be able to fix the timeline that has been ruined… Dak, being brave and trustworthy, along with Sera, who’s always ready for a job, are best of friends. When the curious and dinosaur-loving Dak notices a young pterosaur in his backyard, he realizes that something in history is still broken. With almost all Hystorians gone, nobody except Dak and Sera can remember the past, so they are on their own but not so fast! Riq, another hero and a Hystorian, knows almost everything Dak and Sera knows and he is also still around. Failure is not an option. So with the crafty Riq who now gets in their way, who will win? I recommend this epic historical sci-fi to all historians, science fiction lovers, and people who simply enjoy seeing a timeline being fixed. This book is a short read, but with the amount of action, events, and drama in it, you’ll remember every second of this story. After this book, you’ll remember both real historical facts and the journey of this efficient pair. A great mix of adventure, thrill and fear, I rate it 5 stars. Also, I think it’s better to read the preceding seven books first, so as to ensure that you move along the series in a manner analogous to moving between different consequent points in space. A compliment on the series is that the stories are concocted by different authors, giving a different flavor and writing style to each book. Overall, this unexpected final installment of the series is an awesome book and I hope that many will become readers of it to find out what happens next as only the talented Matt De La Pena could tell.

A girl and boy were biking down their neighborhood street, chatting amongst themselves cheerily. They were best friends. They rode for quite some time, until the boy said, "I have to go now. See you tommorrow?" The girl nodded, "For sure."<br>- - - - -<br>The next day, the boy rode his bike around, waiting for his friend. But she never came. After a few more minutes, he couldn't stand it anymore, so he decided to go to her house.<br>When he arrived, he gave a quick rap on the door. A women, who must've been the girl's mother answered. "Why hello! You must be that boy my daughter Beth always tells me about! What's your name?"<br>"Uh, Aiden." The boy replied politely.<br>"Well nice to finally meet you! Beth's upstairs in her room." The mother to Aiden's best friend smiled, and pointed to the staircase. Aiden nodded and stepped in, shutting the door behind him. The delicious aroma of a bubbling stew and cleanliness wafted through the air of the house. The scent of food made Aiden's mouth water.<br>Slowly, he began to ascend up the steps. He went straight to Beth's bedroom and he lightly tapped on the door. "Beth? You in there?" He asked. There was no reply. He waited a second, and opened the door. No-one was there. /That's weird./ He thought. He looked around. No Beth. Suddenly, something snatched him from underneath the bed and he fell over, knocking his head on the ground as everything went black. <br>- - - - -<br>Meanwhile, Beth paced back and forth aimlessly. She was entrapped within a metalic cage, which was tall and roomy, and shaped as though it was meant for a bird. The entire thing was dangling by a thick wire over a pit of burning red doom, hundreds of feet below. Other than the glow of the flames, it was quite dark. Everything smelled horrible, like burning plastic mixed with th rotten smell of old dirt. <br>Suddenly, a blinding flash of light burst through the bars of the cage and all around. The light only lasted for a second, but Beth kept her eyes squinted longer. When she opened them, she found Aiden lying there along with her in the cage.<br>- - - - -<br>Aiden was groggily awakening to a familiar girl's voice calling his name. He kept his eyelids shut, as he tried to recollect his memories. Then he remembered. His eyes shot open as rapidly as a bullet whistling through the air. He looked at his surroundings, confused how he had gotten here in this strange place. He sat up, as Beth tackled him into a hug.<br>When she was done, she said, "We need to get outta here." Aiden nodded. "But how?"<br>His friend began mussing through her hair. She pulled out a bobby pin. "I know how to pick locks." She replied, grinning. She stuck the pin into the lock and the door swung open.<br>Aiden was still confused. Remember, the cage was being held by a wire which kept the cage from falling to its doom of the fire below. He gave Beth a questioning look. "How are we going to escape? We would need to fly to actually escape this place."<br>His best friend grinned, and her skin began to grow into feathers. "We will escape. Or rather, I will. You see, I need a sacrifice to leave, and your friend 'Beth' wouldn't suffice." She turned into her true form, replacing her disguise with a harpy. "Goodbye, little boy." The harpy scooped Aiden up and dropped him to his doom. His last thought was that at least he'll go to a better place, then he'd be with the real Beth. <p>Fin.<br><br>A/N: Please don't forget to comment. <br>~Obsidian Rose
