Synopsis (Goodreads)

Nobody said being the daughter of an army general was easy. But when her dad sends a teenage subordinate to babysit her while he’s away… That’s taking it a step too far.

Cade, as beautiful as he is deadly, watches Kori with more than just interest. He looks at her like he knows her very soul. And when he saves her from a seemingly random attack, well, that’s when things get weird.

Turns out, Kori’s dad isn’t just an army general—he’s the head of a secret government project that has invented a way to travel between parallel dimensions. Dimensions where there are infinite Koris, infinite Cades…and apparently, on every other Earth, they’re madly in love.

Falling for a soldier is the last thing on Kori’s mind. Especially when she finds herself in a deadly crossfire, and someone from another Earth is hell-bent on revenge…

Review: 2 out of 5 stars

I am such a huge fan of Jus Accardo, I have loved all of her series to date so I was quite excited to read and review her latest title, Infinity which is the first book in the series, The Infinity Division.

Unfortunately, I didn’t completely love it. It took me a while to get through and just as long to warm up to the main character, she was a bit of a pain and not the most endearing personality that Jus Accardo has written.

Kori is rebellious teenager with an Army general overprotective father. After getting in trouble for a graffiti incident he sends in two soldiers to watch over her whilst he is away but these guys are unlike others that have watched over her previously and she soon discovers secrets about her family life and ends up on the run from someone wanting to kill her.

The storyline about a secret government project was creative but not unique and there is a lot of information yet to find out. Other characters we get to know are Noah, Cade and Dylan and to be honest they were quite bland and I didn’t fully connect with them. As this is the first book in the series I am really hoping things improve in the sequel.

The world building was more tell rather than show, the alternate universe was mentioned but we never quite go there so I am still eager to learn more or see Kori visit. Parallel dimensions have never been a favourite storyline of mine but my hopes were high.

We also have the villain of the book and this guy is missing more than a few screws! His purpose was all about revenge and the lengths he took were pretty crazy.

Another thing I couldn’t connect with was the romance, it felt like too much too soon and I honestly couldn’t see how it would work out so this is something else I’m eager to see further explored.

I couldn’t fault Jus Accardo’s writing style but the pacing was slow and a few scenes were over dramatized. It pains me to give this book a low rating but I do want to give this series a go as it does have potential.

Thank you to Entangled Teen via Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review Infinity.


  1. Um, I'm wondering where I've been that I've never even heard of Jus Accardo? Sorry to see this one was a disappointment - especially after loving her other books. It's always hard the the main character isn't particularly likable. I have a hard time getting past that.

    1. Her past series have been really wonderful; I am really hoping on a huge improvement with the next book.

  2. Oh no! I haven't read a book by her but have her on my list. I've heard others feel the same way with this book so I do think I'll pass on this one for now but try to get into her other books soon.

    1. I have thoroughly enjoyed her other series, this one was a let down but I do have faith in this author and hope that the sequel is a big improvement.

  3. Bummer, I have enjoyed the books I have read by her. I wouldn't like the tell aspects and not being able to see the alternate world. So sorry this fell short for you. It is always harder when you love the author.

    1. Thanks Kimba, I keep hoping it was just my mood whilst reading this and the next book is better; fingers crossed!
