Overview

Balancing epic and intensely personal stakes, bestselling author Adam Silvera’s Infinity Son is a gritty, fast-paced adventure about two brothers caught up in a magical war generations in the making.

Growing up in New York, brothers Emil and Brighton always idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to rid the world of specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials are born with powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures.

Brighton wishes he had a power so he could join the fray. Emil just wants the fighting to stop. The cycle of violence has taken a toll, making it harder for anyone with a power to live peacefully and openly. In this climate of fear, a gang of specters has been growing bolder by the day.

Then, in a brawl after a protest, Emil manifests a power of his own—one that puts him right at the heart of the conflict and sets him up to be the heroic Spell Walker Brighton always wanted to be.

Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed.

By far one of the best YA novels I have ever read. The combination of modern day struggles such as social media and celestial powers and creatures is certainly a unique one, and Adam Silvera has made this work surprisingly well. I couldn't help but read chapter after chapter being left starved for more at the end of each one, both the characters and the plot being A++. Summing it up, it's a heavy hearted story about brotherly love, strong allies, devious enemies, and even a dash of bittersweet romance that builds up perfectly to leave us desperate for the sequel. A beautifully inclusive, beautifully executed and painfully thought provoking read.

I love Adam so much! I have read every one of his books to date and loved them all. This book did not disappoint! It is a delicious blend of contemporary and fantasy!! In a world where magic has always existed, two twin brothers strive to find their place in the world. One wants to lay low and just figure out how to go on after the death of his father and his brother leaving for college. The other, a power hungry YouTuber who chases danger at every turn. They go on one wild adventure that ends in a mind blowing way. I need the second book now!!! Highly recommend!! Best book of the year!!

AHHHHHH I absolutely LOVED this book, even if I was slightly scared to dive in, as Adam is well known for his sad endings. This book SO MUCH action. There was a new shock every chapter, and it makes you want to keep turning the pages to know what happens next. The information about the world and character backstory are introduced at a natural pace, and not just info dumped on you. It sets everything up for the next books while still being interesting and engaging at the same time. The last line of the book absolutely wrecked me, and I am VERY (im)patiently waiting for book 2!

Adam Silvera does it again. He never disappoints. If you love his writing, you’ll love this book. And it’s the 1st in a series!!! I don’t wanna give a way spoilers, so you’ll laugh, cry , and wish book two was out already. gabriel.

Usually, I don't pick up fantasy books unless they come very highly recommended or are written by authors who have previously written non-fantasy works. Simple reason: I don't often understand fantasy (processing issue). That said, I highly enjoyed this book. Infinity Son is essentially an urban fantasy which means that it's very grounded into the real world. If you've read Marissa Meyer's Renegades series, definitely read this as well. While Silvera does throw us into a world, much like our own with fantasy elements, I personally found it really easy to pick up on the different fantasy elements which doesn't happen very often for me in fantasy. Ultimately, I really enjoyed the read.

Twin brothers, Emil and Brighton, have idolized the Spell Walkers since they were much younger. The Spell Walkers, vigilantes out to rid the world of specters, have serious powers. The brothers are about to turn eighteen when the book opens and believe they will become Sleep Walkers automatically on their birthday. When that doesn’t happen, they know they will remain mediocre for the rest of their lives. Everything changes when Emil somehow manifests a power all his own. The author didn’t fully realize his two main characters. His story line was slow in developing and the twins came off as being immature – the opening pages would have the reader believe these two are only fourteen or fifteen years old until the author tells us they’re eighteen. His minor characters are gay and people of color so much so that it’s as if the author wanted to be able to check both off of some kind of checklist for diversity that he had created in his head. It would have been nice if he had spent as much time developing the major characters in his book. Another issue with the book is that the author fails to tell readers who the players are. For instance, he introduces Spell Walkers and celestials without telling his readers anything about them. Since they are major players, the lack of knowledge is off putting to say the least. The reader has to guess what and who both these entities are and why they are fighting. If you love fantasy, the author’s world building is sadly lacking. The plot plods along with sudden bursts of activities leaving the reader on a rollercoaster. The reader must wait for something interesting to happen while his characters get all angsty, and the reader gets all bored. This reads like a debut novel rather than a novel by a seasoned author. My thanks to Harper Teen and Edelweiss for an eARC.
