Infinity by Jus Accardo - Book Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

 
Book review


Review by Suze

Kori is the daughter of an army general. She's living close to a military base instead of inside, which gives her a bit of freedom. She loves to express herself through art, which is risky, but she's never backed away from a challenge. When her father finds out he makes sure she's being watched. Kori soon learns from Cade, who's keeping an eye on her, that there are a lot of things she doesn't know about her existence. She also finds out she isn't safe at all.

Cade has traveled to Kori's dimension together with Noah. They're trying to stop an evil revenge plan from becoming reality. Kori is involved, but she has no idea what she's done and why she's the one who's being targeted. Will Cade be able to prevent Kori from being harmed or will he be too late to stop the evil plan that's being set in motion?

Infinity is a gripping story. I instantly loved Kori. She's brave and fierce and she isn't afraid to get into trouble. She's a friendly girl with a lot of talents. Cade is protective and caring. He's a really nice guy who feels deeply, I liked that about him. Cade and Kori meet in a strange way and I instantly loved their connection, which is quite complicated and therefore incredibly interesting. They're surrounded by secrets. I love good stories about this topic and was hooked from the start.

Jus Accardo has written a great story about time. I loved her way of thinking. Infinity is action-packed and I enjoyed finding out more and more about the secret Cade is keeping. I loved the direction Jus Accardo has chosen for her story and her main characters are all fascinating, both the good and the bad ones. While there's a lot of adrenaline, the story also has an emotional part. It's a bit of a puzzle and Jus Accardo delivers it piece by piece, which for me was the best part of Infinity. I loved these snippets of information that lead me to seeing the whole picture eventually. Infinity is a fascinating story with a solid idea behind it. I loved this wonderful book.

“Is that something people lie about around here?” His blue jeans were worn, pulled over battered black combat boots. The sole of the left one was peeling away from the shoe. Did he think he could slack because Dad wasn't here? That no one would see him and report back? Even if they had permission to be in civies, there were strict standards. While off duty, a soldier had to maintain a neat, well-groomed appearance. This was more an outfit worthy of a high school rebel, which, honestly, this guy didn't look much older than.

The one in the back pushed him aside and came forward. Black hair fell just below his ears and had a slight wave to it. It was fuller than normally allowed, not even close to regulation. On some of our previous bases, hair standards weren't strictly enforced. But at Hannity, they were sticklers. High and tight. Those were the rules.

Like the other guy, he had on a leather jacket with black fatigue pants tucked into slightly worn combat boots. Unlike the first, though, this one had seen some trouble in his day. There was a thin scar on the left side of his face. It went from just above his eyebrow, down across his eye and to the tip of his chin.

My pulse spiked a little as his gaze raked over me. Down and up, then up and down, lips parting slightly. I didn't go for greenies, but this one sent the butterflies in my stomach tripping crazy. It was the scar. It added character to his angular face, suggesting that maybe there was more than meets the eye. Or possibly it was the way he was looking at me. With a spark of hunger and something close to wonder in his expression. I'd never had anyone look at me that way. Like I was something mythical and rare. A creature that shouldn't exist. I twisted, shifting so that the door obscured just a little more of me from his view.

He hesitated, focus still trained on me, and for a moment I thought he might poke me to be sure I was real. Clearing his throat, he finally said, “I'm Private First Class Cade Granger, and this is…” He paused to glance over his shoulder. “Recruit Noah Emeal.”

“A private and a fuzzy Really?” I wasn't sure if I should be pleased or insulted. I mean, why bother sending supervision at all if you were going to scrape the bottom of the barrel?

“I promise you'll be safe with us, Miss Anderson.”

Miss Anderson. Huh. Maybe there wasn't more to this guy. He sounded just like the rest of them. Formal and uptight. “That right? So you're here to save me from myself?” Because, really, that was the problem, right? I couldn't be trusted to keep myself out of trouble.

“I'm not sure I understand.” He tilted his head to the left, confused, but didn’t take his eyes off me. In fact, if anything, his gaze grew more intense. It was like he and I were the only ones in the room. In the world…

“I'd really appreciate it if you could stop staring.” I snapped. “I can't tell if you're mentally trying to strip me, or contemplating which way to cook my skin for Sunday dinner. Either way, it’s creeping me the hell out.”

  12. If I could pick my life in a parallel world, I would be an ambassador for animals and the environment. Money would be no option so I would be able to treat and save the sick, injured, unwanted and endangered animals of this world. I would be able to prosecute those who abuse animals and rape the environment. I would work with companies who decimate the rain forest and land in places like Borneo and help them find an alternative for palm oil growth.

  18. Choose a parallel world? ...Oh no no no. My imagination is far too wild, and my thoughts fly far too quickly!

    On Amazon (U.S.), the description for "Infinity" is wiiiiild! I absolutely love it. And I very much enjoy Ms. Accardo's writing style, skin-cooked-for-Sunday-dinner and all. ;)

    (...I wonder: What happens there, at the center of infinity? That white-hot center, where fire and ice forever cross and collide?)
