Jus Accardo Is Still Keeping it Real in Infinity (Review)

There are three things Kori knows for sure about her life:

One: Her army general dad is insanely overprotective.

Two: The guy he sent to watch her, Cade, is way too good-looking.

Three: Everything she knew was a lie.

Now there are three things Kori never knew about her life:

One: There’s a device that allows her to jump dimensions.

Two: Cade’s got a lethal secret.

Three: Someone wants her dead.

Jus Accardo first caught my eye when she released Touch. It rocked my teenage heart! Fast forward a few years and she's caught it again with Infinity, the first in her Infinity Division Series.

As much as I loved the Denazen series, I have very mixed feelings about Infinity. The premise is right up my alley: parallel worlds and constant action. Unfortunately, the execution and complicated love interested left me feeling a little less than enthusiastic. It turned out to be so far from what I expected from this author. The story was rushed, the narration choppy, and only saved by the anticipation of a fun multiverse hopping adventure (which didn't feature as heavily as expected).

The story was repetitive and lacked the world building details that would make this a strong foundation for the series. It's primarily built around Kori, a girl still reeling from the death of her mother and trying to use art as an outlet for her pain. Learning that her mother could potentially be alive in an unknown number of different universes gives her a hope that she can't bring herself to believe. There's a danger that follows that hope and he's determined to wipe her out. The characterization is on point. The main characters are emotional and determined in their beliefs, even when they're wrong. Jus Accardo has always been skilled at bringing teen angst to life in her stories. Readers get the sense of evil super villain versus the unexpected new hero. 

Infinity didn't blow me away like I thought it would. However, I know readers who love quick, action filled reads will dive in and love it.
