I just finished reading this book and I'm still not quite sure exactly what was going on the entire read. Everything was very centered around things that I found to be unimportant to the plot of the book. I swear there was one chapter completely dedicated to a conversation taking place in a car, where all that was talked about was sex, drugs and how hot everyone was. I didn't get anything from this except the understanding that Infinity likes to think a lot about herself, and has some crazy emot ...more

I can't do the full review right now... too upset. Can't even bring myself to rate it yet.

I will say there are things I like in this book. Infinity- Rock Star, recovering addict, and living in a bizarre, futuristic world controlled by supernatural races. Boulder, hot wolf-shifter with panty melting powers. The unkindness of ravens that follows her is unusual and a nice touch. Overall, I enjoyed the variety of characters and 'loved' to hate many of them, while being sympathetic to a select few.

This is a really great story and book. We get vampires, shape shifters, magic, witches and more! Infinity has been living the wild life of a rock star. She had decided it is time to take control of her life. Gone are the drugs and partying. Infinity is becoming aware that things around her are not adding up. One of her nearest and dearest is trying to control her and take over her life. Her family is dysfunctional but they love her fiercely. Her mother who took her in w

I have to open this review with negatives and I'm afraid it pretty much finishes on negatives too. I struggled to connect with the characters in this book and not just one but actually most of them. I think this is due to me getting whiplash a few times by the writing style. Sedona seems to write with a very punchy vernacular and oh boy does this author like writing conversations or what!

I liked the idea of this book. The paranormal or superstar elements alone are tried and test formula, but their combination here adds something new and intriguing to both genres. However, I’m not so sold on the execution. The book started slow, launching straight into a lengthy conversation between two characters that acted a background-dumping device alongside a token effort towards action. The first chapter secured my disinterest rather than my interest.

That’s not to say that it was bad. The c

Let me first say that I decided to read Infinity because the sequel, Infinity Unleashed, looked interesting and I really had no idea that it was the second book in the series. So, I requested the book but when I started it, I realized I was missing a LOT of information. I ended up buying this one so that I could get up to speed on everything that happened.

Have you ever walked up to two people who are in the middle of a conversation? It might be a casual conversation or one that's got them both heated up, and chances are it's something that's important to the two of them. But, the thing is, you don't have a clue as to what the heck they're talking about. After awhile of trying to figure it out just by listening to them, you really don't care. You're on the outside looking in. That's kind of what I felt like reading the first half of Infinity. Ther ...more

I was looking forward to Infinity, because I believed this book was about modern Valkyries, and Norse mythology has always intrigued me. I soon learnt, this book had none of what I  was expecting and a whole host of things that didn’t intrigue me in the slightest!

I can’t quite believe I just read a book that spent 3/4 ‘s of it’ s pages describing clothes and asses. I’m still in quite a bit of shock at my own fortitude! I actually feel slightly bad for reviewing this novel, because I honestly had

INFINITY is the perfect name for this heroine – plagued by the unknown her entire life and will likely be plagued by what might have been and by the haunting dreams that are destined to become reality for the rest of her life.

Author Sedona Venez has concocted a mysterious and unique world in this first book of the VALKYRIES: SOARING RAVEN series.

Infinity (Valkyries: Soaring Raven #1) is an adult paranormal romance/thriller that take place in the year 2101. Where the main character “Infinity” is an “impatient self-absorbed”, superficial, partying drug addled brat on the road to self discovery. She has no idea what she is or the world that she truly lives in.

While Infinity is supposed to be a strong woman at the age of 22, self reliant as a famous singer, this ch

A good start to a new series that left me wanting MUCH more! And not just more of the story, but more details. I was left…wanting and there were quite a few questions lingering in my mind. All-in-all it’s a fun, exciting and funny paranormal packed read that fans of the genre should take the time to look into.

Infinity is a beautiful, talented young woman that has a bad reputation and does not fight to prove it wrong. It’s not that she does not care, but why fight it? She’s highly stressed and de

'Infinity' proved to be a fast-paced, gripping paranormal read. I was immediately hooked in by the opening few chapters with the mystery surrounding Infinity's heritage and what this meant for her future. Her character starts off strong and full of diva attitude. Teamed with her entertaining sidekicks, I was immediately amused and entertained.

Approximately a fifth of the way through, Infinity's mysterious heritage begins to unravel. Cue hotties from all w

I would have loved this book if it weren't for the pacing and the main character. I felt like some scenes were dragged on for an unnecessarily long time (like the limo scene where we meet Infinity's best friends) and I especially didn't like where the story ended because if you recount all the events that have happened throughout the entire novel, not much has happened (at least not much compared to your typical paranormal novels). As for the main character, I don't hate Infinity, but I'm not a ...more
My Fav’s

Momma Bear!! She is so amazing, and has risked so much for Trinity. She is a loyal as they come. Trinity is her heart, and it shines.

Has yet to come into her own, but she’s a fighter, and I can’t wait for her to discover her full potential.

Fierce and strong. He knows what he wants and needs. Nothing will stop him. I’m looking forward to reading what he does next.

I was expecting more, I was confused throughout most of it and did not understand until much later on what was going on. It was just eh. Although the scenes with Boulder and Torch were very clear and made me want to continue reading in hopes that the rest wasn't complete malarky. I may or may not read the sequel/ending.

I don't understand anything anymore. How can something be this bad? How can someone be so blind to think this is worth someone's time and money?

NOTHING FUCKING HAPPENS, the 'characters' are all shit, the mood is non-existent as is the world-building and did I say that there's no plot? Because there isn't.

I think this is supposed to be about a singer who's the daughter of a werewolf and a Valkyrie who's supposed to bring the end of all otherworldly creatures one day, so everyone's kind of keeping
*I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

The premise for Infinity sounded great. You wouldn't even know it was a fantastical paranormal story unless you checked the book out on Goodreads and read reviews. It isn't until the prologue with one of the main characters, Kara, that you realize it isn't just a contemporary romance. There are shape-shifters, vampires, Immortals, Valkyries. A whole world of paranormal creatures. And a whole world of trouble.

I'm "raven" about this book.......

What a wonderful book. I love the characters and how well they get along, it's almost like I'm there laughing and joking with Infinity and her two besties. The lore that is in this book is absolutely beautiful, the songs connected with the ravens is brilliant. I already downloaded book two. Thanks, loved it.

Ever wonder why stories with supernatural being seem to be all the rage nowadays? Ever wonder why vampires and werewolves just can't seem to get along, no matter what universe they are in? Ever wonder if the explosion of supernatural beings battling it out under humans' unaware noses is a social commentary on something larger? This story won't answer any of these questions, but it will help you wonder...
