    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Amazon Children's Publishing, and NetGalley.)This book was slightly better than the first one, but I still didn't love it.I did feel a little sorry for Kai in this book because it appeared that she had lost her powers, but I was a little surprised that she wasn't more worried about it! She seemed to just shrug and accept it, which seemed a bit weird.The ...

    Thanks to Netgalley and Amazon Publishing for giving me this book to review.Kai has now discovered the truth about her past and the city of Ninurta. With a changing Government in its early fragile stages there have been a growing rebel group who wants a revolution and get rid of the Infinite. Kai is stuck in the middle with Avan not remembering his human self and discovering his new powers, and Reev who is acting suspiciously and may be involved ...

    thank you netgalley for sending me this book in exchange of an honest review Official rating 2.5 I just didn't have the heart to give it a 3 starsI went it to this book having a certain high expectation due to the high ratings in goodreads. I'm sorry I just didn't get through this book. As much as I hope to like it I did DNF at the 40%(I know I can't really judge the book can I). I thought this book is a bit unnecessary. The plot is boring, it d...

    actual rating: 4,5 stars.When I read Gates of Thread and Stone few days ago, I ended up really liking it.In my opinion, this one is even better.The Infinite is so good, it takes the story to the whole another level.The world Lori M. Lee created gets even more complexed, but in the good, I dare to say even excellent way.We meet a lot of new characters that are nothing but interesting and the story got us to ask so many new questions that we do get...

    4.5 Fantasy filled stars!I think I enjoyed this even more than the first book in the series. The Infinite follows on from where Gates of Thread and Stone left off. Ninurta is changing after the change in leadership and the sentinels are finally free. In this book we discover that Ninurta is not as alone as we were lead to believe and there is a whole other city of survivors from the war.Once again there is political drama, conflict and magic, in ...

    An enormous and kind thank you to Skyscape publishing for providing me with a copy of The Infinite by Lori M. Lee in exchanged for an honest review. I wonder often about the world. Mainly in relation to its limits. Personally I believe the world does has its limits. So much that it can offer and so much that it can take. Luckily for us readers imaginations are limitless. They provide us with countless worlds that can be lived in for a short while...

    *I received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for my honest review*First ThoughtsThere's going to be a third book, right? Because I seriously need it now ! There are so many loose ends that need to be tied and I am dying of curiosity! What will the outcome of the war be? Which other characters are going to meet their unfortunate end? Will Kai embrace her role as an Infinite? What will become of Avan?The Infinite saddened me-- but in a good way!...

    Rating: 3.5 stars*I received an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.The Infinite was an okay sequel. I wasn't as into it as I was into Gates of Thread of Stone. I had to force myself through most of it for some reason. It didn't seem as interesting to me, even though I liked many of the newer developments.I liked the conflict of this one. A new area of the world was introduced. There were some new characters as well. There was a lo...

    Loved it! not what I expected but i have learned that Lori will always keep me on my toes! check out my full review on the tour HEREAlthough Gates of Thread and Stone was a book I enjoyed thoroughly, I had trouble recalling all those breakneck plot twists that took place. It didn’t take long into The Infinite for me to get right back in my seat of my gray. This second installment had a bit of a slower start and a completely different, unexpecte...

    3.5 Stars...I had hoped....for more, but it was still good. I enjoyed it but there were times when it didn't even feel like the same story anymore.....so I'd get lost and want to put it down. it did get better. I love Kai, shes awesome. I love what the author did with some of her characters....she definitely kept you wondering who was good and who was bad....i definitely enjoyed the unpredictability of it. overall I liked it.... cliffhanger at th...

    I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I thought this was a really good follow-up on Gates of Thread and Stone. Although the plot is as intricate as ever and the world-building expands, I had some problems with some of the characters. This book focuses more on plot-based elements, as Kai and the gang step out of Ninurta and into a new city with new characters. The old characters appear mostly in the beginning, which...

    3.5 starsJust like Lee's debut novel I found myself rather wordless when it comes to review the Infinite.There is much to say, but how to say it? How does one express one's love for an author's prose? How does one explain how impressed and how moved one is by the talent of someone?To be honest, I find myself lacking to do so. So I shall just say, that Lee has written herself into my heart. I love her prose. I adore it. And I think there will be l...

    Reviewing sequels has always been tough for me. I never know what I can and can't say because I don't want to give anything away. But then, sometimes, I'm too excited and add way too much detail and I feel like the review is on huge spoiler. So I am going to sincerely try to write a non-spoiler review for this book.Kai has lost touch with a part of her that used to be a secret. She doesn't know how she feels about it but she knows it isn't good. ...

    4 Stars A fast-paced, action-packed thrill-ride, full of magic, betrayals, and shocking revelations, THE INFINITE is a steaming hot read that's not to be missed!Now this is what I am talking about!! THE INFINITE was just the sequel I was hoping for!! This sequel was nearly perfect, and sooooo much better then THE GATES OF THREAD AND STONE!! Book one was seriously lacking (See my review HERE) on many aspects. But THE INFINITE has sealed my faith i...

    This book took me by surprise, much like the first book!This book picks up a few months after the last events of Gates of Thread and Stone. Kai is struggling to come to terms with her actions in the last book, and trying to figure out how to help reclaim Avan's memories before he becomes too much of an Infinite and loses all his humanity. With Kahl Ninu having been dispatched, the city of Ninurta is slightly restless as the city adjusts to the ne...

    The Infinite by Lori Lee is the second book in the Gates of Thread and Stone series and I will get to the story in a minute but I have to admit, these books have some of my favorite covers. I thought the first one was lovely but after reading, I thought this one captured Kai and the story perfectly. Plus it is sooo pretty!! Warning: If you have not read Gates of Thread and Stone, stop here as there may be spoilers to that book below.To say Kai ha...

    This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic Nerd MY THOUGHTS I enjoyed Gates of Thread and Stone, but I enjoyed this book even more!This book takes place shortly after Gates of Thread and Stone ended. Kai is trying to awaken Avan's memories after he became an Infinite, to no avail. At the same time, Kai is losing her grips on being able to manipulate the threads of time. In fact, she isn't able to use her power at all.And things are even...

    Before reading: (view spoiler)[ omfg i don't really trust avan now that SHIT WENT DOWN (aka he's an effing mortal turned immortal and god and wait whattt the new Ninu or the new Conquest) arghtttt no whyyyyy.i mean this could outcome in kai released from her human body in the end and living with him forever under the sun,but i doubt this would happen as let's be real,Kai will never succumb to her peers' manipulation ,Avan or not.Maybe I'll go a l...

    I read the first book in this series a few months back and I loved it so I was super excited to start book two. I was hoping for more world building and some cool character development. I got half of that I wanted so it wasn't a total loss.I liked Kai fairly well in the first book but I felt she became really boring and mildly stupid in The Infinite. There was a few major things that didn't seem to bother her but I thought should have. She spent ...

    Okay, going to be honest. For about the entirety of this book, I thought that Lee was going to betray me. That she was going to take my emotions, my desires, and rip them apart...and then laugh in my face. But I couldn't stop reading. Her characters, the plot, everything drew me deeper and deeper. To the extent that I finished the second book mere hours after finishing the first (one could assume I did both in under 24 hours, as I started the fir...

    I was much more intrigued by The Infinite than I was with the first book, but all the same, my rating stays at 3.5 stars.What I liked:• The manipulation and doubt Kai faces. (Although I wasn’t fooled and saw the plots twists coming from miles away.)• Kai loses her powers.• Kai has become more kickass.• Kai is still loyal to her friends and family.• Avan doesn’t get his memories back. It would have been too soon and I wouldn’t have...

He is proof that you don't need to be blood to be family. (view spoiler)[ I really hope he says yes to being an advisor (hide spoiler)]Avan: I don't even know how to put him into words.

    I liked this one more than the first one and in my opinion it was way better; even if, from what I've seen, some people think the opposite. Maybe they don't like action packed books.Because it's the sequel I won't talk a lot, but as I was saying this book was good. I enjoyed the action and the suspense, the twsists and turns that were coming like crazy, and I'm surprised to say, but I really liked Kai and I could very easily sympathize with her. ...

    Unfortunately the magic seems to have disappeared for me, much as it's done for our protagonist Kai.In brief:1) I totally understand that this is a magical/fantasy world, but some things still need to be plausible. Making a 17-year-old advisor to the ruler of the city based on her past antics, which were really more impulsive than strategic, is pretty stupid to me. 2) The love triangle makes its appearance. Although it is put to bed pretty swiftl...
