Infinity Reborn is the final book in the Infinity Trilogy. If you haven’t figured it out already, this means that the following review will definitely contain spoilers for the first two books (not that it matters — they weren’t great).
What a disappointing end to such a meh series.
As Finn and Infinity battle it out for control, their mind is drained and badly suffering. A new plan is hatched to try and finally get them out of Blackstone HQ, when it’s revealed that few will be safe if the final stages
of Project Infinity are initiated. It’s up to Finn to find her father so that she can finally get the answers
she we crave.
As I began Infinity Reborn, all that I could think was “seriously, they’re still in Blackstone HQ?” Talk about laborious.
Fine, we get it already. It’s an interesting setting to say the least. A large complex where practically any
thing can be made up out of thin air is fantastic, and provides for so much potential — so why doesn’t the evil artificial intelligence in charge of the entire HQ use that power to unleash absolute madness, rather than just sending a few robots after everyone?
I doubt that I have ever read a novel where the premise, the world, the entire set-up offers so many wild possibilities, and yet we’re handed a book of absolute nonsense.
Nonsense, I tell you. Nonsense.
Surprisingly, this is still an improvement on Infinity Rises. We’re not told how the novel ends near the beginning this time – seriously, what had Harrison been thinking? — allowing for some form of suspense to build.
It’s not much, though. The ‘twists’ can be seen coming from a mile away, as if they’re wearing high-vis jackets. In my mind, I was pleading for the ‘surprises’ to be revealed already as it’s slightly frustrating waiting on them to arrive.
Halfway through the novel, I found myself close to willing Finn to die as it’s just tiring at this stage. Too much is going on. She has too many battles and robots and everything else under the sun to fight with. Her courage is no longer admirable, but expected. I know that she’s a strong, courageous young woman. I just want to see the poor girl rest, even if the only peace she can get is through death.
A book where you’re hoping the lead dies just so it’ll over is possibly a good example of ‘nonsense.’
It wasn’t that bad of a book, in comparison to Infinity Rises. It just wasn’t that good, either. So unless your guilty pleasure is slow-moving, tedious trilogies, I’d recommend giving Infinity Reborn a miss.
If you’re interested, you can always grab it on Amazon anyway.
