Jack Blank was never like any other kid. When he lived at the orphanage weird things would happen when he got close to machines. He didn’t understand his powers until a representative from the Imagine Nation found him and took him back with him. The Imagine Nation is the place where superheros are trained. While in the Imagine Nation, Jack learned of the Rüstov aliens who can take over humans and machines by infecting them with a virus. The Rüstov have invaded the Imagine Nation and are planning to take over the whole world. Jack quickly trains as a hero but also learn a terrible secret that connects him to Revile, an evil Rustov super-soldier determined to destroy everything in his path.

In The End of Infinity, Jack finds himself in a Rüstov prison but quickly escapes with the help of his friends from the Imagine Nation. When Jack returns to the Imagine Nation it erupts into was with itself. The People of the Imagine Nation now know Jack’s connection to Revile, some believe that Jack can defeat the Rüstov while others think he will destroy them all.  Can Jack bring the Imagine Nation together or will Revile destroy him and the entire world?

This whole series ROCKS!! I liked the plot in this book, a hero has to fight the things inside of him and defeat a great evil. It is pretty suspenseful. It was my kind of book – lots of action, excitement and adventure! It was so good, I couldn’t put it down! Jack is an awesome character. He is nice, smart, and I imagined myself as him when I read the book. I also really liked the character of Solomon Roka. He reminded me of a spy or secret agent. That kind of means he was cool and awesome. ;) I felt sad when the Rüstov took over his body. I like a lot of action, excitement, and adventure, so I really like the fight scenes in this book. This is a great end for the trilogy, but I do wish that there was more to read. I recommend this (awesome) book to kids 9+! I can’t wait to read what Mr. Myklusch writes next!

I give “The End of Infinity” five out of five bookworms!

    I know you love these, so I HAVE to give them a try. I know! I’ll make book one my first read aloud for homeschool this year!

      That’s a great idea! I hope you and your boys like “The Accidental Hero”! :D

        Ah, here it is. I had to backtrack and find out the name of book one. You made it easy for me by including it. I’m off to order it from the library for homeschool now! (Oh, duh! I just remembered you guest posted a review for this one on my blog. That probably would have been easier. Oh well!) :)

      Erik — keep meaning to ask you how you found and downloaded the Youth Tube video?

      • thiskidreviewsbooks August 10, 2012 at 9:03 am #

        I got it from the bottom of Dr. Clune emails. She has videos for all the Plum Tree sites. I got it from there. Let me know if I can help you get it :)

    Another awesome-sounding adventure book. I’m beginning to have a taste of what you like, similar to what Pat has said about this being an “Erik” book. :)
