Infinity Richards, daughter to the most powerful man in America, is on a journey to reach her father in Camp Zion. But her pilgrimage across a dystopian America ravaged by war and hunted by the enemy isn't an easy one. To survive, she must throw off her previous life of ease, affluence, and privilege and learn how to survive out in the wild on wits and grit alone. And, of course, a gun.

The story is told in the first person from several POVs: Ellie, Infinity, Evangelist, Mack, and Damien; each c

Great book! A realistic post-apocalyptic thriller set in a near-future United States that has suffered a nuclear-and-conventional attack. A plausible, exciting thriller, don't be put off if you think you don't like Christian fiction as the Christian elements are subtle and not at all intrusive.

What I particularly liked about Infinity's Reach was the way that the characters had decisions to make that really were all-or-nothing, the story begins with a choice to risk everything on knowing the trut

Infinity's Reach Is Sure To Grab Reader

Glen Robinson’s Infinity’s Reach tells a post-apocalyptic tale in the United States in the aftermath of The Event. Readers follow the life of a young Infinity (Finn) Richards and her friends Ellie, Kimmy and Marcie at a resort among cute boy toy waiters relaxing, eating and drinking. 

But something’s not right. In the near distance, Infinity first then her friends notice a guy in military fatigues who holds a series of signs for their eyes only. One reads, ‘

I received a copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads. The following review may contain, at most, the slightest of spoilers.

Let me begin with a dash of honesty – the reason, the only reason, I selected to enter the giveaway for Infinity’s Reach was because I saw ‘Baltimore’ in the description. Post-apocalyptic fiction, especially one with religious connections, is not usually my cup of tea. So the next day, when I found out I actually won, I was actually a bit disappointed. Why couldn’t I

Robinson has made a contemporary masterpiece of a classic—and yet it has become a story in its own right.

The characters are gritty and real. The adventure is tense and unpredictable. The spiritual journey is inspiring. If I had read this book before the summary, I would not be able to tell that it is a contemporary re-telling of a classic best-seller. Robinson has done a marvelous job of bringing the principles of Pilgrim’s Progress into a post-apocalyptic world full of real struggle and spirit

I loved the parallel between Pilgrims Progress and this book. Robinson managed to tell one of the most famous stories ever written in a way that still kept you guessing what would happen next. I enjoyed reading it. :)

"Infinity's Reach" I won in a Goodreads Giveaway and was spellbound by the story of Infinity Richards , the daughter of the Secretary of State who thinks she and her friends - Ellie, Marcy and Kimmy - are spending a school holiday at a luxury resort. When she and her friend Ellie decide not to drink their champagne they wake up from their drugged stupor to find they're actually living in the squalor of a prison camp they have to escape.
Set in the future after a surprise nuclear attack devastate

Didn't realize it was Christian literature, I wouldn't have read it. It was an interesting premise, but thin and under-developed. The characters were interesting but shallow and the story ended abruptly and was uninspiring. Disappointing at best.

Definitely a page turner, well-written and exciting. Minimal religious undertones compared to other books by the same author.
