Wondered how this series would be improved upon. Author did not disappoint. Characters remained robust and conclusion was excellent use of writers skills. Hope this is just the beginning of another adventure.

I think this is overall a good series. the Books 1-7 were fun, smart, and worth a read. this book was disapionting. the 7th book had a good ending to the series and this was just a bad plot. they most likely made this book to make money, as if the series did not already bring in enough. this book was confusing beyond the amount of confusion a book recomended around ages 7-12. the 7th book wrapped the series up nicely where they fixed all the breaks. if you want to read this series (if so, this i ...more

I could not get over the first half of this book. The thousands of clones were too much for me, and yes I was snooker in not suspecting the red heads manipulating of history again.

Great. Although I found the start of this quite confusing at first, I was unsuspecting, and oblivious to what was happening, all the better when everything was revealed. This book is amazing, and a stunning conclusion to the Infinity Ring series, done brilliantly.

Considering I hadn't read any other books in this series and that it felt a bit closer to middle grade than YA, I thought it was a pretty enjoyable novel. Dak, Riq, and Sera are time travelers who stop Breaks in the time continuum--moments where other time infiltrators try to change the course of history. In this final adventure, they find themselves leaping everywhere from Galileo's trial to 9th century China to the launch of the first Russian space rocket in order to prevent the

Amazing ending to an Amazing series...

They should have ended it with number seven. Everything was wrapped up with a bow, and I even felt the horrible series was a bit redeemed. Then this happened.

It didn't just have a few plot holes. It's plot Swiss cheese. And the entire Galileo thing was laughably ridiculous.

They built a new villain, and a completely new conflict just to make an eighth book? Yeah...kind of.

Really bad.

Parts of this were good which is why I'm giving it a three star rating, but I stand by my opinion stated in the previous book. This story reached its arc in book seven and book eight was not only unnecessary, but the sort of addition to the series that twists the plot in a negative way in order to elongate a series that was apparently making money for somebody.

I'm not even going to get started on all the contradictions this books made on prior books like Sera not knowing scientific things while

So I DIDN'T FINISH this book. So take points off Dr. Crowe :) But, I didn't realize that this book was part of some weird series where different authors write different books. Other authors in the series include James Dashner, Carrie Ryan, Matthew Kirby, Lisa McMann, and Jennifer A. Nielsen. That was weird. I didn't realize there were series like that, but I guess that "Infinity Ring" isn't the only one. There is also "39 Clues" and "Spirit Animals". So, because this was part of a

Dak and Sera find different ways of readjusting to normal life after their final time traveling adventure to fix breaks in history. Dak is happily taking it easy in his backyard hammock and Sera is working on tachyon fluid experiments when their peace is interrupted by another series of events that prove their work is not done yet. This mission threatens to tear apart their friendship.

Eternity is the 8th book in the Infinity Ring Series and even though there are seven books before it a reader wh

In this installment of the “Infinity Ring” series, “Dak” and “Sera” time travel to prevent inventions and theories that cause destruction and war. Unfortunately, they are clones working for an evil faction headed by Tilda. Their actions and plotting cause a rift and distrust between the real Dak and Sera as they travel to ancient China, Rome and Massachusetts to prevent the invention of gunpowder, the imprisonment of Galileo and the future of rocket science. It is when the actual Dak and Sera tr ...more
Just when you think the Infinity Ring series has come to a satisfying conclusion, here comes another book that shows that there is more adventure for the time-traveling heroes Dak Smyth and Sera Froste. In this title, the two end up back in time where they make well-intended changes that will have bad results and may lead to one of their former rivals winning everything. With the help of Rik and a mysterious dog, the two go back in time again, to three specific points, and right the wrongs that ...more

Leaving Riq in the past, Dak and Sera return to the present having fixed all the breaks in time. However, the SQ has been at it still, and when crazy things start happening (like a flying dinosaur in modern times), the kids know something is wrong. Teaming up with Riq again, they have to thwart the issues for good, or it may truly prove to be the end of the world.

A really fun way to end the series. And really, it was a great series for kids - especially 3-6th grade. Lots of history mixed with sc

Just when they thought they had saved the world, Riq, Dak, & Sera and thrown into a bigger mess than ever before. As we learned at the end of book 7, Tilda has escaped Ancient Rome. She has founded a new organization, AB, to continue her life's work. Can Dak & Sera figure out what is going on before it is too late? You absolutely must read the other books in the series first, or this won't make any sense at all. Grades 3 & up.

there's something missing, The Iron Empire is a good conclusion to series but this... opened a new series but it is the CONCLUSION to the Infinity series... just disappointed
Meh. It should have ended with the last book. Didn't like this one at all, but I think part of it might have been the narrator. Bottom 10 of narrators ever. His regular speaking voice was fine, but he did this high pitched voice (for a boy, made no sense) that was AWFUL. Ruined the experience of the book.

The idea of having time/history messed up by Tilda is great. Plus Seras and Daks from alternative dimensions. The ending... wtf. I had to read it over and over again. How did they solve the problem again? Back to rereading the last few chapters. I was like.. yeah OK. I still didn't understand. Worst book of the series tbh.

The conclusion of the series. In the prologue Dak is struggling with his seatbelt in a space capsule. What does this have to do with his current life, is he experiencing a Remnant ? Dak and Sera have traveled back in time and caused new breaks. Can they undo the destruction they have caused?

The idea of continuing the series was a good one, but the delivery left much to be desired. The writing style bugged me - jumping forward and backward in the narrative. I was glad to finally know what SQ stood for. But I wish they had told me in book 7 and left the wrap up from that book.
Apr 28, 2015 rated it did not like it
Worst ending to a series. Horribly written, the whole thing was disjointed, poorly edited, and felt like the roughest of rough drafts. End the series at book seven and continue the story in your own mind. This ruined the series for me.

This was my least favorite in the series. The previous book gave a very satisfying conclusion to the story. I did like the added information about what happened after the prime break was fixed, but this book gave me more questions than answers!

Dak and Sera met Doubles of themselves that are from other universes.

I liked the book because it has alot to do about history and science which I like.

I don't know how Tilda got a dimension travelling device.

A fun story that keeps you guessing, but you really have to suspend disbelief because there are several points that just don't make sense or are circular. For example, why does fixing a break in the past fix it forever, when your enemy can just go back in time and cause the break again?
Adrienne Pettinelli
Listened to this one for AudioFile. Totally fun. Dion Graham narrates it, and he's becoming one of my favorite narrators. Really energetic and dynamic. I wish he'd start doing performances of boring things I have to read like tax rules and Robert's Rules of Order and State Comptroller guides.

Still don't really understand why they decided to add another book to the series(view spoiler). Other than that it was a fun book along the same vein as the others if a little more fantastical.

Excellent series for all ages really but great history lessons for ages 8-18. This new book continues on from book 7. As always the narrator is great. This time set in both the present and the past. Enjoy.

"Whatever you say," Dak told her. "Come here, let's hook our arms together and see if it's a good fit."
