Infinity Lost is a YA novel about the 17 year old daughter of technology magnate Richard Blackstone. Or, at least that’s what she’s been told. Because Blackstone is a recluse, Infinity (Finn) is raised by the staff of the mansion where she lives. She leads the boring life of a rich kid until she starts having strange dreams.
The book is meant to be a YA novel, so there aren’t a whole lot of deep passages, and the reading is easy. Harrison did an incredible job of keeping the story moving and pushing the reader along. I found myself instantly enamored of the characters and always wanted to keep going to see what would happen next.
As far as plot goes, there were parts that started to become pretty evident about half way through the book, but even so, I still wanted to read on to find out the rest of the missing pieces and see how all the parts fit together. It’s fast paced, with no parts that I would consider boring or slow.
The one nit-pick that I have with the book is that the plots weren’t totally wrapped up by the end. Yes, it’s a trilogy, but in most books of a series, there’s a larger plot that you don’t expect to have finished and plenty of smaller plots that do get finished. Maybe it’s because it’s YA, but I didn’t feel like there were too many sub-plots and it was all revolving around the larger main plot which, of course, didn’t come anywhere near completion. It clearly moved forward.
Overall, the book is an excellent sci-fi YA story, and I look forward to the next installment of the series.
You can pick Infinity Lost up on Amazon.
