I am so excited to tell you about a new series from Scholastic called “The Infinity Ring” series! It is a dystopian adventure where history is all wrong, and the main characters have to go back in time to fix it.
Dak Smyth and Sera Froste had no idea what would happen to them when Sera fixed Dak’s parent’s invention, the Infinity Ring. The Infinity Ring allows someone to travel back in time with anyone touching them. The Historians (a group of people who try to change the things that went wrong in the past) find out about the Infinity Ring and bring Dak and Sera to their HQ. When the SQ (the evil government controlling the US and maybe other countries) find out, they attack the Historian base. Two of the leaders tells Riq, a juvenile Historian agent, to go with Dak and Sera on their adventures. The kids go to Spain, 1492, where the Amancio brothers were about to set sail to find the quickest route to India but find America instead (according to the history they know). The kids arrive just in time to stop a mutiny aboard the ship. It turns out that the Amancio brothers were trying to overthrow some guy named Columbus (who was kind of a mean guy) and take over his three ships (you can guess what the ships are named ;) ). Will the kids save history?
This is an AWESOME first book to the new series! Like The 39 Clues series, each of the books in this series is written by a different author but the new series is very different from The 39 Clues. The Infinity Ring is set in a dystopian world where the main characters (three kids) have to travel in time to fix whatever is wrong with history. I LOVED “A Mutiny in TIme”! Mr. Dashner put a lot of action, adventure, and excitement in he book! I really liked how Mr. Dashner wrote a lot of humor and sarcasm in the dialogue of the characters. The main characters are Riq, Dak and Sera. Riq was just cool. He was fluent in 16 languages (which is cool). Dak is the “history” expert, which I think will come in handy. Sera is pretty scientific. I like scientists. ;) I like the format of the series (much like The 39 Clues) where a different author writes each book. I think it’s cool to read how each author changes he story a little. I also like how these stories involve time-travel and history. I recommend this book to kids 9+ and young advanced readers.
Check out the website for the series HERE. So far, you can only read an excerpt from book 1, but the website will be functional when the book comes out on August 28th! I can’t wait to check it out! I know you can get cards and do missions. I can’t wait to do those too! :) Here is a video you can watch to learn about the book and online game!
