It’s Viking-infested Paris, 885, in this second book by a second author in the Infinity Ring series (James Dashner’s Mutiny in Time, 2012). As self-identified science and history geeks Sera and Dak (“we must be dealing with some sort of hidden variable aspect to the quantum entanglement” and “every modern-day European monarch is descended from Bill Helm the Vanquisher,” respectively) travel through time with their linguist friend, Riq, to save the world from a still-mysterious evil organization. Many history-loving kids will be sucked in, while others will be hooked by the accompanying full-color poster-map (unseen) and corresponding 3-D online game. Grades 4-6. --Andrew Medlar

Cindy (the mother, older than 9!) writes: This book builds on the first book in the series. While it can be read independently, the story will be more meaningful if the reader has first read the first book in the series. (Also helpful is visiting the website to gain information about the French Revolution story.)
There are some differences between the first book in the series and this one. First, the characters do not appear in "modern times" at all, and there is no direct contact between the three heroes and the modern-day "Hystorians." Second, the book is written by a different author, though the tone and style is similar. Third, this book covers some historical events that are less famous than those discussed in the first book; in addition, the heroes spend a significant amount of time in two different historical periods, with a brief stop in two others. Fourth, the heroes in this book are forced to make decisions when the correct choices are less obvious than in the first book.
I liked the first book better because the story was more straight-forward and easy to follow (Save Christopher Columbus). That being said, this second story is more sophisticated, with multiple layers of adventure, problems, and meanings.
Though i understand its plot necessity in both books, I hope that the authors move away from characters (such as Dak) doing obviously stupid things in order to advance the plot. It was frustrating for me (an adult) when Dak left the relative safety of Paris to go to the Viking battlefield.
Seven-year-old Adam also very much enjoyed this book.
All in all, we love the series and cannot wait for the next book!!!
In this instalment the gang find themselves in Paris in 885 at the very time that the Vikings are invading. Their old foes the SQ are also back again, and having infiltrated the Vikings they are leading them into events that will strengthen the SQ for the future. Our heroes need to find the Hystorian and fix the Break before it's too late, or it spells trouble for the future.
The main characters develop in this story as they learn more about each other and bonds become stronger. In one instance there was a little romance, which takes an unexpected turn as the passing of time has a huge effect. The search for Dak's parents is an underlying theme in the story, which does progress within this book. I'm sure that the next books in the series will pick up where this part of the story leaves off.
I found the action scenes were vivid and I could easily visualise the settings and hear the battle cries. Although, the vision of the Berserkergang could leave me scarred for life (read it and you'll know what I mean :). I'm a huge fan of Paris, and after reading this, I'm glad I've visited modern Paris, rather what it was like in 885.
My bottom line is that this book is a great read which is better than the first in the series. I enjoyed the vivid details, action and growth of the characters. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series.
