somewhat scientific: infinity by jus accardo

it took me a while to get into infinity, the first book in the infinity division series by jus accardo. it wasn't until cade and noah actually started filling in the back story that it really caught my interest. and part of me wonders if the bonus pov scene included at the end would have maybe worked better as a prologue. because even though we would have been very confused, i feel like it would have upped the stakes for the story in a way that the first couple of chapters needed.

but maybe the author tried that and it didn't work. regardless, once this story gets going it's good. noah and cade belong to another world, and in their world kori armstrong is dead. she was the love of cade's life and noah's sister. and she is in danger because dylan, also from the same alternate world as noah and cade, is out to kill her. in the guy's original timeline, dylan's love, ava harris, died in a car accident while cade was driving. and dylan wants her back at any cost. he's willing to destroy everything and anyone who gets in his path.

to save her life, kori joins forces with noah and cade in order to stop dylan. in the process she learns that there are so many infinite possibilities and struggles with the fact that she feels cheated by her reality without a noah and a cade. the intensity of their mission forces the characters to place trust in one another and open themselves to finding that they care about what happens to each other. it's not just kori's life they are trying to save. they don't manage to save everyone, and as dylan keeps changing the rules of the game he is playing, the stakes keep getting higher.

and as the novel comes to a close, it's with the promise of so much more. and believe me i am interested in seeing where it goes.

**infinity will publish on november 1, 2016. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing in exchange for my honest review.
