Примечание редактора

Intense action…

Adam Silvera’s love of comic books and Harry Potter inspired this superhero story, filled with varying characters and intense action, including a plot twist fairly early on that will keep you hooked. Set in an alternate New York, shadows of our current political tensions run through the novel, as characters born with special abilities use phoenix fire, hurricane-strength winds, and other powers to prove whose worldview is correct.

Описание

Balancing epic and intensely personal stakes, bestselling author Adam Silvera's Infinity Son is a gritty, fast-paced adventure about two brothers caught up in a magical war generations in the making.

Growing up in New York, brothers Emil and Brighton always idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to rid the world of specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials are born with powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures.

Brighton wishes he had a power so he could join the fray. Emil just wants the fighting to stop. The cycle of violence has taken a toll, making it harder for anyone with a power to live peacefully and openly. In this climate of fear, a gang of specters has been growing bolder by the day.

Then, in a brawl after a protest, Emil manifests a power of his own—one that puts him right at the heart of the conflict and sets him up to be the heroic Spell Walker Brighton always wanted to be.

Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed.

    I absolutely adored this book ?. I hated and loved the ending though.

    The bond that brighton and Emil have is riveting. I loved the Narroators of this book and the fact that it was a full cast based on the point of view the chapters were in.

    Infinity Son is Adam Silvera’s fifth book, but his first foray into the fantasy genre. It’s the beginning of a trilogy titled Infinity Cycle, featuring brothers Emil and Brighton caught up in a magical war.The physical setting for Infinity Son is based in urban New York, and while the population of Silvera’s fantasy world is human, a small percentage are known as Celestials, who may act as Spell Walkers, whom are born with inherited powers that usually manifest during childhood, or Specters, who may act as Blood Casters, whom gain their abilities with alchemy derived from murdering magical creatures like hydra’s, basilisks or phoenixes. In New York at least, the Celestials and Specters are enemies, and both groups are generally reviled by the current government, who seek to imprison or control them, so when Emil unexpectedly manifests extraordinary powers in defence of Brighton when attacked by a Specter, the brothers, along with their mother and close friend, are forced into hiding with a group of Spell Walkers. There are more shocks in store for Emil, and he struggles to accept his new role, especially as the situation with the Specters escalates. Meanwhile Brighton, desperate to contribute, uses his social media savvy in an attempt to restore the Spell Walkers reputation, but the reflected glory is not enough to satisfy him long.Though Emil and Brighton are the central characters, Infinity Son unfolds from a number of other viewpoints, including Spell Walker, Maribelle, and Ness, a Specter. It’s a diverse cast, which includes male and female queer characters, and persons of colour, who I enjoyed getting to know, but I do think it was perhaps a little ambitious of Silvera to introduce so many. There is a general lack of nuance, where the characters are defined by a single trait, rather than having a well-rounded personality.The plot is fairly simple, Silvera utilises the familiar ‘chosen one’ trope with the inevitable battles between good vs evil. There’s a touch of sibling rivalry, a suggestion of star-crossed lovers, and unexpectedly for the genre, a whole lot of social media. Infinity Son also offers plenty of action, and the story is generally fast-paced.To be honest, the magic structure of the world feels like a slightly messy mash up of Harry Potter, X-Men, and (CW channel) superheroes. I think in part this is because Silvera provides very little in the way of exposition, and I struggled at times to connect, and make sense of, the scattered information. I’m fairly sure I figured out the basics, but there were a few elements that remain inexplicable.Despite its flaws, I did enjoy Infinity Son, and I think the Infinity Cycle trilogy has potential as long as Silvera (or his editor) can rein in the obvious enthusiasm, which is what has led to this somewhat scattershot result.

    Love the book but it's very predictable the narrators did an amazing job

    Okaay I disliked some parts and liked some others so I think it’s a solid 3... I need to sit on this to decide whether I like it or not as a whole. I will definitely be reading book 2 so I think I’m leaning to “liked the book”. I’ve read other books by Adam Silvera to know he has a specific type of writing which I recognize. From that one can think that the character building at least will be good/decent, right? My main issue was (and you’ve read it in other reviews) the world building. I have soooo many questions and I didn’t know who were the good, the bad and the good pretending to be bad (where did that Luna character come from? The evil politician made more sense to me than this gal). I just went with the flow and at some point the plot not only bored me but the missions made zero sense to me. BRIGHTON CAN SIT ON A CACTUS. Gosh he’s a pain in the ass. Characters were solid though, so instead of cheering for their world I started cheering for Emil’s love life LOL While I like characters that are not defined by their gender/sexuality... that saved the plot for me. You could feel the sparks in the first page those two interacted... and while I know that this has all the ingredients for a very toxic relationship (well, at this point who hasn’t shipped “We met when you were pointing your knife and it was love at first sight”?) I still ship it. Emil’s morals dude, he’s a precious bean and deserves better.
