Time travel is real... and it's our only hope! When best friends Dak and Sera are recruited by the secret society of Hystorians, they learn that nothing in their world is as it should be. Now it's up to them and their new ally, Riq, to visit the past and fix the Great Breaks in history. Their first stop: Spain, 1492, where a sailor named Christopher Columbus is about to be thrown overboard in a deadly mutiny.

Overall, this was a really interesting story. I love history, as does my 9 year old who falls directly in the target demographic for this book. I really looked forward to reading this because I absolutely loved James Dashner's Maze Runner series. I read this book in just a day and devoured the words. I really thought I would struggle because sometimes the middle grade reads are a bit slow for me but this was not the case here. Infinity Ring: A Mutiny in Time is very different from anything else I have ever read. I love the fact that, after reading the book, it becomes interactive with an online component that really plays into the novels. This is overall a very well thought out concept and completely unique. I loved it. I played the game for only a few minutes, but I can see how it could totally suck you in, even if you aren't a middle-grade reader! Grownups love it too.There were some very minor editing flaws, but nothing so glaring as to distract from the book. Overall, the story is well written, the characters are plausible, and I intend to read the remainder of the series as soon as I can get my hands on them.Thanks to Scholastic for a review Copy.

I was hoping for somet...
I was hoping for something on par with the 39 Clues series - which follows a similar strategy (ie: books by different authors, codes and trading cards) and I felt sorely let down by book #1. Indeed, as an opening book, this was particularly weak.It is very childishly written, with the historical references being decidedly unconvincing, in a manner that indicates this book is intended for either young readers (ie: 7-9) or assumes children are not canny enough to know much about history nor look up information for themselves. For example: The mutiny against Columbus was not premeditated, it was caused by the crew becoming uneasy. Also, Dak and Sera's part in the prevention of the mutiny is minimal - the entire thing could have been handled without them being there at all. Not to mention how little sense it has to have people watching for "time travellers" way back 600 years ago.Having Dak and Sera as "nerds" is all well and good, but could they not have been characterised in a somewhat better manner? Dak was seriously annoying - and his random "I have an announcement to make: *insert pointless historic fact here*" was daft - any child that behaved like that would quickly be taught not to - by bullying or teasing, and most young boys are unlikely to perpetuate the behaviour. Sera was just flat and, well, they were both highly irritating.Overall, this book was rubbish and the only reason that I might read more is because the other books in the series are written by other authors, who might well do a better job of things.

Dak and Sera are best ...

Dak and Sera are best friends, and geniuses in their own right - Dak is a history buff and Sera the science ace. When Dak's parents go away for vaction, Dak and Sera enter their laboratory where they find the Infinity Ring, a secret project that Dak's parents were working on. When Sera figures out the missing link and finishes the work on the Infinity Ring, they gain the interest of a secret organization called the Hystorians who needs them to help fix breaks in history. Dak, Sera and Raq (a teenage language pro) travel back in time to 1492 where they join Christopher Columbus on his journey. Dak, Sera and Raq must figure out what the break is and fix it before moving to the next break. A Mutiny in Time is a quick read and I think it will open an appetite for history in young readers. It brings history alive and gives readers a taste of what life might have been like back then - imagine sailing on the the Niña, Pinta, and Santa María! I'm curious to see how the story unfolds and where in history Dak, Sera and Raq find themselves. I'm also curious to see the voice of each character across the different books, especially since they are written by different authors. Definitely a series to look out for![review of arc from BEA]

I received an autographed ARC (advanced reading copy) of Infinity Ring, book one: A Mutiny in Time, so now you know (if you read the stats above) I read it quite awhile ago. Even though I wasn't asked to, I decided to post a brief review because this volume is the first of a series that might interest a child (age 9 and up) in your life. Book eight of the series is due to be released in August of this year. This book came with a poster, a 3-D sticker and a fold-out map to go with the online game. The first characters we meet are a couple of adventurous young friends, Dak and Sera. Quickly the reader learns there is trouble in their world - the very real chance it is going to end soon. Something has to be done to prevent it. Also, there is Dak's parents' very important invention - the Infinity Ring, a device that allows time travel - that someone bad is after, and that Dak and Sera have found. Worse yet, Dak's parents have disappeared - lost in time! The young friends are determined to help, but their discovery of the Infinity Ring has put them in danger. Of course, that doesn't stop them and they decide to go back in time to find Dak's parents and also fix history while doing it. Now, how is that for an exciting story a youngster is bound to like? This adventure is very easy to read and get caught up in, the pace keeps one's interest, and surprises along the way keep the story moving. There is decent humour, too, which always adds a nice touch. I didn't try the online game but that is something maybe my grandson will do with me now that he is nearly nine. Look for book one of the Infinity Ring: A Mutiny in Time. The series is written by several authors, but James Dashner is the author of books one and seven of the series.

Dak and Sera stumbles upon the secret to time travel in this fantasy historial fiction YA novel. Readers will enjoy the fast pace action of this book and may learn something about history in the process. Recommended for children ages 9-13. The story is well narrated and would make a great road trip material.
