Fantasy has never been my genre of interest. However, when I got Infinity Reaper from Simon and Schuster, I knew that it is something unique. The next step was to get the prequel Infinity Son, to imbibe the essence of the book. The series infinity cycle is the story of two brothers Emil and Brighton. The first part of the book is wrapped around Emil and the secrets surrounding his birth. In continuation of the first part, the author grabs the readers with a completely different scenario in the sequel.
Phoenixes and humans:
Emil acquires some powers which he realizes later. The spell walkers and specters are the two rival entities in the world of phoenixes. While spell walkers have an inherent power of magic, the specters are the vile groups that acquire their power through alchemy.
The imagination of the author is commendable. While fantasizing about the human amalgamation of phoenixes, he made sure not to lose the thriller essence.
