Format: Hardcover
"The boy stared at his world gone mad."--begins the second book of the bestselling 13th Reality series: The Hunt for Dark Infinity. The malicious Reginald Chu has devised a way to infiltrate the minds of people and creatures alike--controlling their thoughts, speech and actions.

New Realitants, Tick, Sophia, and Paul, must find a way to penetrate Chu's destructive creation before he gains control over all the Realities. But they are at the mercy of Chu's test--as they are winked from one reality to another--forced to decode strange messages and battle deadly creatures in order to save their own lives.

From a distance, Master George can provide aid when it's most needed--but even he can't stop the events from unfolding. For he knows that Tick needs to make whatever sacrifice necessary to stop Chu from succeeding.

From the first sentence to the last, Dark Infinity will propel you through fantastic Realities, spin you against another adventure just as you're ready to take a breath, then deposit you in the middle of one of the most clever twists I've read in years.

I've enjoyed all the books written by James Dashner that I have read. This one, which is part of a series, is no different. I would recommend it to any teenager or young adult. After reading the series, I loaned it to my grandson, and he thoroughly enjoyed it as well.

This book begins with Tick, Paul, and Sofia getting a message from Master George that the realities are in danger.

He tells them that they need to meet with others to decide what must be done. Instead of going to Master George, as they should have, they are sent to another reality all together. They believe that Master George has sent them on a series of tests in different realities with deadly traps all around them.

Mr. Chu, from the Fourth Reality, is working on a new weapon called Dark Infinity, and Tick is in a race against Mistress Jane to find it first.

Before I started this book I wondered if I should read the first in this series, THE JOURNAL OF CURIOUS LETTERS. I can tell you that although it would help to get to know the characters by reading the first book, it didn't seem necessary. It was very easy for me to figure out what was going on.

I enjoyed this book very much, although it may be a bit long for the younger kids (8-10). THE HUNT FOR DARK INFINITY was well-written with an engaging storyline. I really liked the main characters, and it was enjoyable getting to know them.

I am eagerly awaiting the next story in this series. James Dashner is a gifted storyteller and will definitely keep everyone interested.

This book was such an unexpected pleasure to read. Dashner's themes of self-discovery and the power within were expertly deployed. But I must confess that my favorite aspect of this book was the relationship between Tick and his family. As I started to mentally review other books I've enjoyed in this genre, I couldn't come up with a single other book that represented an in-tact, supportive, close-knit family. What a gem! I look forward to reading many more of Dashner's books and having my children read them as well. Excellent!!!

Fantasy/science fiction
433 pages
I’m a average reader
My favorite genre is: fantasy
Book summary:
A boy named Atticus Higinbottom is part of a group called the realitants and there are 13 main realities with some fragmented ones. There is a mysterious plague going through the realities that causes people go insane and when the leader of the realitants, Master George, sees them going through the realities on some sort of test and cannot bring them back things really start to go wrong.

What I liked about it: I loved the suspense and science to it as well as the kind of magic to it.

You should read it because: there are a lot of mind boggling parts, lots of action and mystery, and it never gets boring, ever.

This second book picks up at the end of a boring summer (especially after all the excitement of the first book) with Tick and his new friends waiting to hear from Master George, the head of the Realitants. They are anxious for their next mission. When it comes, of course things go wrong and suddenly, they are off on an adventure that is making no sense to them. It's like they are being tested all over again. What could be going on?

Meanwhile, back at the headquarters, their other friend, Sato, gets sent on his own scary adventure, complete with an amazing, breath-taking chase scene. Then there's Master George who, along with his eclectic group of Realitants, is trying to figure out exactly what's going on because things are all a bit confusing. And then also, we learn much more about the villains, both the new one and the old one.

This book is full of heart-pounding chase scenes, many explosions and destruction galore! There's also lots of riddles to solve, just like in the first book. It's extremely fast-paced with never a slow moment.
