Kai has now discovered the truth about her past and the city of Ninurta. With a changing Government in its early fragile stages there have been a growing rebel group who wants a revolution and get rid of the Infinite. Kai is stuck in the middle with Avan not remembering his human self and discovering his new powers, and Reev who is acting suspiciously and may be involved with the rebels. On top of this she has lost her powers to manipulate time. But everything changes when they learn they are not alone and there is a city outside of Ninurta called Lanathrill who needs their aid. With Kai and some Hollows, including Mason, investigating, will they discover that these people are hiding something?
The Infinite is the very enjoyable sequel to Gates of Thread and Stone which was well written and a fascinating story. It has more action and twists, and we get to see more of this world.
Kai has become more confident in this book but she is still determined and caring and does not know what she wants to do with her life. I miss the old Avan and I struggled to warm to the new him but he was not much in this book so I hope he is in the next one more. Similarly, I also wish Reev was more in this book as I feel there is more that we can learn about him.
Mason is a nice character who is tough yet cheeky and I like that he played a bigger role in this book. There are also some interesting new characters including Emryn who is a single-minded ruler who wants to live up to his dead father expectations and restore glory to Lanathrill, and Cassia who is a sweet and amiable girl.
I really liked this book and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I would recommend The Infinite to fans of the first book Gates of Threat and Stone
