The Infinity Ring 2 - Divide and Conquer is a great story that I liked even better than book 1. Our heroes, Dak, Sera and Riq return in a great adventure that is full of action, heroics and suspense.

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

I love historical fiction. I love sci-fi. This series is a great combination of both! This particular book was about the Vikings and the Siege of Paris about 885 AD and the conquest of Normandy. It involved Rollo the Walker. Before listening to this book I listened to Sea Wolves, so I knew the history. That was fun to follow along and know what was supposed to happen and spot what was wrong in history. At the same time, it is just fine if you don't know the Viking history. They cover the history ...more

This book is even more actioned packed. There is plenty of suspense in this book. There is so much suspense that it will make you want to read all of the books in the series.

Divide and Conquer, book 2 in the Inifinity Ring series, starts off talking about Paris which was actually where the last game ended and not where book 1 ended. It was a cool way to tie the online games in with the books. You don’t have to play the games to understand the books, but I think they are fun and the maps that go with the games inside the books make it feel like you are a part of the quest.

This particular period in Viking history was a perfect one to appeal to kids. There’s a king nam

When I read/listened to the first book of the series, I thought it was one of the most promising middle-grader books that I read so far. It was charming, it had a cool premise and interesting, different characters while still keeping all its middle-grader characteristics. I was quite sure I was about to be hooked up by the series and read the whole thing. Too bad that the experience I had with Divide and Conquer didn't even get close to a third of the fun I had with the first book. The second bo ...more

Divide And Conquer is the 2nd installment in the Infinity Ring series and it definitely surpasses it's predecessor. I'm not really familiar with the history behind the Vikings' siege of Paris so it was nice to get a basic background on the events. This book is short, but sweet with enough action and adventure to create a compelling adventure. I read the entire book in one sitting which should give you a sense of how compelling and quic

Infinity Ring #2 “Divide and Conqueror”

The second book of the Infinity Ring series is even more exciting than the first. The crew now know how to control the ring. They are using it like professionals. However they got themselves in the biggest dilemma. They need to stop a viking rampage, and all of the vikings are part of the SQ, the opposing team. Dak is kidnapped by the vikings and is forced to work for the opposing side. How will Dak, Sera, and Riq stop an army of big and strong vikings?
This book is even more actioned packed. Th

My biggest fear with this series is that each book would basically a be the same story as the other books in the series. At least with the first two, it wasn't that way. There were similarities, but I felt like the second book was a distinct story. I didn't know about that period in history, so I got online and learned a little bit. I love books that make me want to learn. There were a couple of places I thought the action went on a little long, but then again, I'm not really the target audience ...more

It was amazing! The Infinity Ring #2 : Divide and Conquer is about 3 kids who travel through time. They go back to the year 880 AD when the Vikings are attacking Paris. They are trying to fix a break in time and 1 kid gets captured by the Vikings. I liked this book because it is about Dak, Riq and Sera! Sera knows lots about Science and Dak knows History and Riq speaks 16 languages. I like Science and History so I really liked this book.

Dak, Sera, and their new friend Riq, are fixing the breaks in the past again, and now, they're going to 885, when the Vikings and the Franks have a war, and three kids have to fix it. I liked this book because I'm starting to enjoy this series since I finished the first book. I would recommend this book to people who fantasy books.

This is a fun little quick read book. It's not the best book I've read, especially next to the first and second Percy Jackson series, but this is a great series. I think it's pretty cool that each book is written by a different author and love all the details each author puts into their books. Yes, the characters do seem to change just a little bit in each book because the authors are changed, but for the most part, each author does really well in portraying each character close to the same.

Ugh. Didn't care for this one. I loved the first one and skipped around a bit to the periods that were more interesting to me (#3 - Underground Railroad and the one about WWII). Then I realized that the series ends with #8, which felt do-able. I don't know if it was the Viking theme or what in this one, but I just wasn't into it. And it kept wrapping up seemingly only to keep going. I'll probably try #4 and if it's as painful, I'll abandon the series.

I think that this book is a very good science fiction novel that you can read at any time. It is about three main characters that go back in time to Paris to fix the past. The problem is that they cannot change the future too much. Also, they have to survive while thing like Vikings try to attack them. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to read a good sci-fi book!

Well this book definitely had some unexpected twists and turns as you solve the next riddle in the infinity ring series. I love that we got a less whiny perspective from Dak and saw Sera develop into a more complex character. I'm still holding out to get more from Rick, but there's still another book ahead!
