From the people who brought you The 39 Clues… get ready for a new book-plus-online-game series! Coming on August 28th, Infinity Ring will turn our reality on its head with an adventure spanning multiple continents AND historical eras.
Full disclosure: I actually work for Scholastic — aka the people who brought you The 39 Clues and now Infinity Ring. But unfortunately, I’m completely uninvolved in the series. I wish! So… for a hint about what’s coming in August, I turn to the official publicly-released description:
History is broken, and a long-feared Cataclysm seems imminent. The capital of the United States is Boston. Lincoln’s face is nowhere to be seen on Mount Rushmore. Everyone’s buzzing about the French royal wedding. And an international group of men and women known as the SQ is more powerful than kings, richer than nations, and more fearsome than armies. When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste stumble upon the key to time travel — a hand-held device known as the Infinity Ring — they’re swept up in a centuries-long secret war for the fate of mankind.
OMG, sounds so good!
And recently, USA Today revealed the covers for the first two books in the series:
PLUS, check out an excerpt from Book 1!
Did I say “OMG” before — based just on the series description? Well, now allow me to say: OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!
Are you as excited about Infinity Ring as I am? And if you’re a 39 Clues fan, how do you think this will compare? Tell me in the comments!
