Omega (The Infinity Division, #2) by Jus Accardo

Published by Entangled Teen

The second book in the Infinity time travel series is full of action, romance, and an intricately designed roller coaster plot.

One mistake can change everything. Ashlyn Calvert finds that out the hard way when a bad decision leads to the death of her best friend, Noah Anderson.

Only Noah isn’t really gone. Thanks to his parents’ company, the Infinity Division, there is a version of him skipping from one dimension to another, set on revenge for the death of his sister, Kori. When a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with Ash, he’s determined to resist the magnetic pull he’s felt for her time and time again. Because falling for Ash puts his mission in danger.

But there’s more going on in Ash’s alternate universe than either of them knows: a mysterious project called Omega. A conspiracy spanning multiple Earths and revolving around none other than Ash. Its creators would do anything to keep Omega secret…

“Maybe you used to be better at it?” I prodded. “I mean, you probably don’t get a lot of time to date while skipping all over creation, right? Maybe you’re just out of practice?”

“I’m not out of practice.” He seethed.

“It’s okay! It’s nothing to be ashamed of—”

For the second time since we’d met, he assaulted me. One second I was having the time of my life pushing his buttons—ridiculously easy to do—the next I was against the wall, Noah’s body covering mine. His lips moved furiously, scorchingly hot and with a level of passion I’d never felt before. His tongue slipped between my lips and despite having told other guys that I hated that, I melted, reveling in the millions of electrical tingles the action sent shooting through my body.

His hands gripped my head on either side. No roaming, no exploration. Somehow it made the whole thing hotter. Like he couldn’t bear to release me in fear that I’d move. That I’d get away and he’d have to stop.

And stop? No. That was a dirty word. A softly whispered sin in the darkest corners of the earth. Stopping this would be a crime of the highest caliber.

Except he did. Stop, that was.

He pulled away just far enough to look me in the eye, not yet letting go of my head. With an extremely satisfied tilt of his lip, he said, “Decent my ass.”


My Review:

5 Out Of 5 Hearts

Genre: Another-World, Mystery, Romance, Supernatural, Suspense, Teen--

Book 2 in the series picks up a few months and a lot of jumps after the end of book 1, with Cade, Kori, and Noah following Dylan around, trying to stop him from his path of destruction. While on another world, Noah is tracking Dylan, just to find himself run into, quite literally, into Ash, the girl he meets in every world, the girl he feels drawn to against his will. Ash has had a hard life, and to top it off, her Noah is dead and she is blamed for it. Ash is conflicted, not sure if she can trust this version of Noah, and unable to resist the draw she feels to him as well, even when she doesn't trust him. Can the two work together long enough to stop Dylan and put a stop to the mysterious Omega project? Oh and did I mention they only have a few days before they are both out of time?

This is the second book in a series, and technically this has two new characters and sorta, kinda a new mission, but the overall plot and characters continue from the first book I really liked that this book was told from an entirely new perspective, something I had no idea before I started reading. Infinity had Kori as it's prime narrator, a character who had no idea what was going on and fell into the middle of this mess. Omega had dual narration with Noah, who was a side character from book 1 and Ash who was just a brief mention but not present in book 1. As I always say, I am a huge fan of dual narration in a romance, that way I get both sides to the story and I don't feel left out (ok, to be completely honest, I almost always like dual narration because I am nosy and love to know what is up with all the characters). I would not really consider this a romance, more a sci-fi adventure, but the push and pull and angst of the romance did play a pretty big part in this story so I loved that I got to see into both Noah and Ash's psyches.

I love how every world they go to has some strange interesting quirk, be it in your face like an animal planet, or small subtle things such as outlawed meat or extinct cats. The world that this story takes place on was a crazy, scary world- as Kori put it, it may be advanced in technology but it was hundreds of years behind in human rights. The world has a class system where basically the wealthy, who are wealthy by shady means, are on the top and control everything. Then the mediums, and then the bottom rungs, who are dirt poor with no rights, and the option to be a servant or a "performer" (aka prostitute). Ash belongs to this bottom rung, pretty much her whole life told she was worth nothing and to expect nothing, so really the fact she has any self worth is amazing. I think this story was a much more gritty one than the first book, mainly because the main characters are such realists who have faced some tough truths about themselves and the world, and yet they are willing to fight for what is right.

I enjoyed seeing the world from Noah's perspective, who was an abrasive jerk in Infinity, and sure he was a jerk here too, but he had reasons and a well-meaning heart that melted me. He would easily do anything for these three people who have become his family (against his will!) and I loved him for it.

The end was perfect, and I love that I got many answers I needed for Ash, as well as the potential for so many more world-jumping adventures with the most interesting, eclectic and perfect of groups- I am interested to see who else will join this crazy mission in books to come. I just love how this book is full of action and adventure, but it also has feels and the idea of the perfect person existing for everyone, even if it may be a challenge to find them. This is the second book (and first series) that I have read by Jus but now my too-read list is full of all the stories she had already created, and I so look forward to more from the Infinity Division to come.

I received this title in return for my honest review.

Infinity (The Infinity Division, #1) by Jus Accardo

Published by Entangled Teen

Published on November 1st, 2016

Genre: YA Science Fiction

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…
