Hello readers! I want to start by thanking Netgalley for an eARC of The Infinity Courts in exchange for an honest review. I’m going to include the two paragraphs of my honest Netgalley review in this post, as I think they are the best summary of my thoughts.
From Goodreads: As soon as I began reading The Infinity Courts, the character of Nami and the story of her death pulled me in. Travelling through the world of Infinity with Nami was unlike anything I’ve ever read before. It stunned me with its mixture of science fiction and fantasy, while still placing the reader in the familiar world of artificial intelligence being integrated into everyday existence. I felt that this was a very realistic place to begin Nami’s story.
The magic system in this afterlife world blew away my expectations. The ability to manipulate the world around you, given enough practice, gives the characters powers they wouldn’t otherwise have during their lives. It also shows the reader “death ages” for the characters that are impossible to determine otherwise. The longer that character has been dead, the more easily and powerfully they are going to manipulate the world of Infinity.
I know I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: I don’t want to read books I’ll be able to predict the events of the plot for. This book held up to my standard. I even paused a couple of times to figure out how it was going to end and couldn’t come up with anything close to what happened. It was a realistic ending that made sense for the plot and didn’t come out of the left field without an explanation. It thoroughly surprised and pleased me by the end of the book, and I can’t wait for the next one.
From Goodreads: I highly recommend this book to lovers of science-fiction, fantasy, and technology-based fiction. I found the beginning to be slow as Nami’s thoughts took over quite a good portion of each chapter, but it picked up just before the one-third mark. It’s definitely a four-star read for me and I’ll be getting my hands on the hard copy soon for a reread.
