Review: Infinity Reaper - Adam Silvera (Bookstagram Tour)
"Emil and Brighton Rey defied the odds. They beat the Blood Casters and escaped with their lives–or so they thought. When Brighton drank the Reaper’s Blood, he believed it would make him invincible, but instead the potion is killing him.
In Emil’s race to find an antidote that will not only save his brother but also rid him of his own unwanted phoenix powers, he will have to dig deep into the very past lives he’s trying to outrun. Though he needs the help of the Spell Walkers now more than ever, their ranks are fracturing, with Maribelle’s thirst for revenge sending her down a dangerous path.
Meanwhile, Ness is being abused by Senator Iron for political gain, his rare shifting ability making him a dangerous weapon. As much as Ness longs to send Emil a signal, he knows the best way to keep Emil safe from his corrupt father is to keep him at a distance.
The battle for peace is playing out like an intricate game of chess, and as the pieces on the board move into place, Emil starts to realize that he may have been competing against the wrong enemy all along."
I received Infinity Son & Infinity Reaper by Adam Silvera for free in exchange for an honest review as part of a bookstagram tour for Pride Book Tours. Thank you so much to Adam Silvera, Pride Book Tours and Simon & Schuster UK for having me on the tour! This review is also available on my Instagram! Plus make sure to check out all of the other fantastic bookstagrammers on the tour!
I absolutely loved the look of the Infinity Series when I first saw it, plus if a book is described as "queer x-men" then of course I NEED it and I'm going to love it - that's just a fact of life!
Our protagonists are Emil and Brighton Rey and we pick up exactly where Infinity Son left off and dive right back into the action of the battle. The team have broken apart, Emil is suffering from his wounds and Brighton is about to realise the consequences of his impulsive decisions. The battle is not over yet but the team may have been pushed to their limits.
I thought the seamless transition from Infinity Son to Infinity Reaper was absolutely fantastic! It felt like I hadn't put the first book down and I loved being able to read them back to back. I didn't want to leave this world for a second and I really enjoyed how the worldbuilding was even more fleshed out in the sequel. Plus the fantasy elements throughout the books and the powers of the characters were so cool - I can definitely see why Brighton wanted some so bad!
The book had a really good pace and entertaining plot line. I can't wait to read even more from this series because it is going to be just as brilliant as these first two books! Infinity Reaper has some mend binding twists, a gay love triangle, dynamic action and even a heist - believe me you're going to love it!
Thank you so much Pride Book Tours, Simon & Schuster UK & Adam Silvera, I thoroughly enjoyed this tour!
