Review: Infinity (The Infinity Division #1) by Jus Accardo
Nobody said being the daughter of an army general was easy. But when her dad sends a teenage subordinate to babysit her while he’s away… That’s taking it a step too far.
Cade, as beautiful as he is deadly, watches Kori with more than just interest. He looks at her like he knows her very soul. And when he saves her from a seemingly random attack, well, that’s when things get weird.
Turns out, Kori’s dad isn’t just an army general—he’s the head of a secret government project that has invented a way to travel between parallel dimensions. Dimensions where there are infinite Koris, infinite Cades…and apparently, on every other Earth, they’re madly in love.
Falling for a soldier is the last thing on Kori’s mind. Especially when she finds herself in a deadly crossfire, and someone from another Earth is hell-bent on revenge…
4.5 Out Of 5 Stars

Kori has been pretty empty since the death of her mother 2 years ago, feeling alone and listless, her only escape the street art her General father would be horrified to know she creates. When an encounter in the middle of the night with a strange guy who seems to know her makes her uneasy, her night gets even worse when a police officer catches her with her spray paint. Expecting punishment, she is surprised when he dad goes out of town on business as planned and her "babysitters" are two stranger her age instead of the military guys she is use to . When she has another encounter with the creepy guy that almost costs her her life, Kori comes to the conclusion that she has no idea what is going on.
I had been eyeballing this book for the last year since I heard about it's existence. The cover was cool, the premise sounded interesting and different, and I heard great things about the author, so was I ever so excited to get my hands on this book. I can happily say that it lived up to my excited, but I could never have predicted the way I was sucked into this world (worlds?) or the twists the plot threw at me, as well as the increasing tension between the characters and the dynamics of the relationships (I feel so torn over Cade and what I hope will happen and I really loved Noah). This is the start of a teen sci-fi/fantasy series where I can only guess where it will go next.
This book had a nice blend of plot as well as character development, making it just what I wanted. I like that all the sci-fi stuff and mystery was a slow reveal, the reader learns what is going on right along with the main character Kori, which is one of my favorite world development styles. She thought she was just having another normal, slightly lonely day when in actuality her world is about to get bigger and much more complicated. We learn about the alternate realities and other versions of people a single encounter at a time until the possibility of seeing these worlds becomes a real possibility. There are so many mysteries that the book started, some resolved and others left hanging, peaking my interest and imagination. I really enjoyed that each world had some slight tweaks, not everything is the same but with perfectly reasonable explanations of the changes.
Overall this book had a strong female main character who could face challenges without backing down and knew her own mind and strengths. I rooted for Kori, as well as the boys who just so happened to become so important to her. I can't wait to read the next book and see where the Infinity Division will end up next...
I received this title in return for my honest review.
