SELECT REVIEWS:

  • Praise for Infinity Ring #1: A Mutiny in Time:

    "Tight plotting, snappy dialogue... the story moves at a breathless pace.” -- Rick Riordan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Percy Jackson & the Olympians

    "History is broken, and we need your help to fix it.' What kid could turn down an invitation like that?... It's a quick, straightforward adventure with a successful mix of action, adventure, and historical substance." -- Publishers Weekly

    "Save a place on your shelves for this fast-paced and fun series about historical time travel." -- Voice of Youth Advocates


    Praise for Infinity Ring #2: Divide and Conquer:

    "Many history-loving kids will be sucked in, while others will be hooked by the accompanying full-color poster-map... and corresponding online game." -- Booklist


    Praise for Infinity Ring #3: The Trap Door:

    "Three novels into the series, the Infinity Ring pulls off a shocking twist. This book earns the year's strangest compliment: It doesn't read like a time-travel story. It has all the usual tropes: impossible technology, split-second escapes, glimpses of the future. There's even an inventive variation on the grandfather paradox. But in its best scenes, it reads like a historical novel." -- Kirkus Reviews


    Praise for Infinity Ring #4: Curse of the Ancients:

    "Fans of the series will already be hooked, but even more skeptical readers may be a little curious what happens next." -- Kirkus Reviews
