The Infinite is the second book to the Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee. This review may contain spoilers.
Kai always believed the only danger to the city came from within. Now, with a rebel force threatening the fragile government, the walls have become more of a prison than ever.
To make matters worse, as Avan explores his new identity as an Infinite, Kai struggles to remind him what it means to be human. And she fears her brother, Reev, is involved with the rebels. With the two people she cares about most on opposite sides of a brewing war, Kai will do whatever it takes to bring peace. But she’s lost her power to manipulate the threads of time, and she learns that a civil war might be the beginning of something far worse that will crumble not only Ninurta’s walls but also the entire city.
In this thrilling sequel to Gates of Thread and Stone, Kai must decide how much of her humanity she’s willing to lose to protect the only family she’s ever known.
I didn’t know what to really expect to see within The Infinite since it had been a while for me since I read the first book, Gates of Thread and Stone. However, quickly into the book, my recollection was coming back, which was a good thing.
I liked that we saw a new country in this world; which is something that they didn’t think was possible in the last book, and we also read mentioning’s of another country as well. Hopefully we get to read about them as well, in the third book.
The country that Kai and her employ did visit though, was cool to read about. I’ve forgotten the name of said country, unfortunately. The country is so different and utterly opposite of how Kai grew up in the Labyrinth.
It was great seeing Kai grow and accept who she is. Even if she still has some troubles accepting who and what she is. I’ve got to believe though that Kai is going to have troubles still in the third book. I also believe that Kai’s going to kick some serious butt in the next instalment as well. Which will be incredibly interesting to read about since I find that when Kai uses her powers is one of the most interesting things.
As much as this book was a great sequel to Gates of Thread and Stone, I’m kind of bummed that there was a point in the plot that I had predicted. However! I couldn’t predict all that much within The Infinite; which is great.
But why do I get the feeling that Kai’s brother is starting to have romantic feelings for Kai?? And why is she blushing around Reev?
I’m happily waiting for the next book to be written and published.
I gave The Infinite, 3 of 5 stars on Goodreads.
Have you read The Infinite?
I know the book is a little hard to come by. I tend to think of this series as more indie than most, since for the most part, the books are hard to come by in-store if you’re unwilling to buy the books online.
