Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7–10—STORM: Science and Technology to Over-Rule Misery is an organization founded in London by 14-year-old genius Andrew, a software millionaire who wants to change the world for the better. He has recruited Will, Gaia, and Caspian, also prodigies, to help him with his endeavor. After one successful mission, though, things start to go awry. Caspian's father, Vassily Baraban, a famous astrophysicist, has been kidnapped, and his son is willing to do whatever it takes to save him, even if that means breaking away from STORM and joining a group that might destroy it. This is a great novel for aficionados of Anthony Horowitz's "Alex Rider" books (Philomel), but it's a lot more technical. (An author's note describes the gadgets and the actual research and inventions on which they are based.) Sure to be checked out by those who love SF/spy novels.—Heather Scribner, Lawrenceburg Community Schools, IN

From Booklist

Will, a teen who invents ingenious spy gadgets, has felt off-kilter ever since his father was killed and his mother left, supposedly to visit her mother in St. Petersburg, after dropping Will off with a friend in London. Soon Will is recruited by STORM (“Science and Technology to Over-Rule Misery”), a small group of young geniuses who start out with a vague intention of doing good and end up with a mission to save the world from a mad, evil plot. Will makes a sympathetic hero, thrown off balance by his family’s disintegration and unsure of whom to trust. Subplots wind into and out of the main story, to be resolved in the final exciting scenes when STORM infiltrates a compound near St. Petersburg. Readers intrigued by the main characters will be glad to know that sequels are in the pipeline. Alex Rider fans hungry for more will find this a satisfying novel filled with espionage, danger, and cool paraphernalia. Grades 5-8. --Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Storm: The Infinity Code is the first book in a cool new spy series for young readers. Although the heroes, Will, Gaia, and Andrew, aren't spies in the normal sense of the word, their adventures are definitely espionage based. In addition to cutting edge technology, international chases, and really bad guys, there also cut off and operating independently in a dangerous world.

I got pulled into the novel immediately by Will when he start experimenting with his new gadgets. One of the best things about this book is that the gadgets all have basis in reality. The designs are all being worked with for military applications by several different developers around the globe. Spy stories just aren't spy stories without these gadgets, and this book has a ton of them - including a flying insect drone and a remote-controlled rat.

Most kids are going to find someone among our three heroes they can empathize with. Personally, I really enjoyed Will because he was very sympathetic after losing his parents. He's the real loner among them and doesn't want to hook up with anyone, especially after he finds out what Andrew intends to do with all his millions and specialized knowledge.

Gaia is the perfect heroine for girls because she can be fantastically sarcastic when she needs to be, and she's smarter than the boys at times. She's independent, funny, and intelligent, yet at the same time she is a nurturer and caretaker.

Andrew is probably the least likely for readers to look up to. He's a good character, but he has his faults. He's driven and he has his own idea about how things should be. Also, if he feels compelled to, he will interfere in the lives of others and snoop through their things.

Will Knight never intended to get mixed up in international crime and political intrigue.

When he first met Gaia, gifted chemistry student, and Andrew, child millionaire and software genius, and heard about their idea to start an organization named STORM which would help in desperate situations around the world, he declared them crazy and walked away. But he can't ignore Gaia when she tells him about a magnetic storm that's about to hit Earth. The group's efforts allow a plane that would otherwise have crashed to safely land, and Will discovers that saving lives makes him feel more alive than anything has since his father's death a few months ago.

Before long, STORM faces a new, far greater challenge. A brilliant scientist has been kidnapped, and his son, Andrew's friend, Caspian, has created an incredible weapon to fulfill the kidnappers' demands. When Will finds out, he knows they must act or risk global tragedy. He and his friends embark on a journey across the continent to stop Caspian and find out who is behind the scheme. Along the way, Will must face truths he'd rather not have known, and all three must learn to work together if they--and the planet--are going to survive.

STORM: THE INFINITY CODE is an exciting, fast-paced adventure that's sure to appeal to fans of spy stories and mysteries. The three main characters are enjoyable companions along the way, heroic but still human, doing as much as three fourteen-year-old teens can. There are many surprises along the way, and while the ending is satisfying, it's far from pat.

From the detailed explanations of Will's inventions to the stark descriptions of the dangers the group encounters, the book is more realism than fantasy, and is all the stronger for it. Highly recommended for readers who like their adventures grounded in the real world.

Format: Hardcover
If the Alex Rider and Artemis Fowl books have taught us one thing, it's this: Science. Is. Cool. It's in a world of gadgets and gizmos where kids who might otherwise be dismissed as weird find their place and emerge as extraordinary. Empower them by placing them in a position of authority --- say, self-made spies on a mission to save the world --- and you have established all the necessary ingredients for a hit series. E. L. Young, a journalist for a British science magazine, taps into this popular genre, adding the unique touch that the gadgets she writes about are based on real objects, with her debut novel, STORM: THE INFINITY CODE.

STORM centers on three teens in London: Will, the loner inventor; Gaia, his multi-lingual classmate; and Andrew, the computer genius whose software earned him his first million dollars by the time he was 10. Andrew has used his considerable wealth to create an organization he calls STORM (Science and Technology to Over-Rule Misery), whose altruistic goal is to make the world a better placed with their combined, advanced skills. Will, still despondent over his father's death months earlier, initially resists the idea, but when the team is able to save a plane that nearly crashes as the result of a solar flare, he begins to warm to the idea of saving lives.

Their next mission proves much harder. The genius son of a kidnapped scientist gets involved with the design of a superweapon in a bid to negotiate his father's release. The STORM team hightails it from London to St. Petersburg, Russia, to stop the weapon from falling into the wrong hands. What follows is a fast-paced, gadget-laden story that will keep fans of the teen spy genre turning the pages at breakneck speed.
