Book one (The Butterfly Code) is currently free and this book is only $0.99

It has been almost one year since I read The Butterfly Code, but I still remember very much about it, and I’ve been waiting for this book ever since. It was worth the wait! It does have less action scenes, but it made sense and I still enjoyed this book a lot. After that cliffhanger though, I need the next book now. The Infinity Gene is a great sequel to The Butterfly Code and it picks up there where The Butterfly Code en

Aeris Thorne is a genetically modified human, but she's fighting against that, trying to return normal to save those she cares about. She knows she and Hunter can't make a life together, not in their current forms and not if she wants him to stay alive. Powerful forces are coming to check on them, to verify that an agreement they made decades ago still stands true. Aeris would leave, would hide if she could, but now a child is involved and she feels an obligation to help her, despite the danger ...more

The Infinity Gene is the sequel to The Butterfly Code from the Girl on Fire series by Sue Wyshynski. It’s a long awaited addition to the series, with the first released in 2015. It only took me a minute to get back into the series, to find myself in the trans-humanistic world again, but once I jumped in I was hooked. Aeris is a compelling character, full of strength, naivety, love, and determination.
During the first book she was thrust into a new worl

The Infinity Gene picks up a few days after the events of book 1, The Butterfly Code. Aeris needs to be back to her human self, helped along by an experimental drug created by Hunter, before the Conclave shows to pass judgment. Hunter did the unthinkable by saving Aeris and turning her into an immortal, a crime he may pay dearly for with his people. But there is more going on than just her human status, now a child is thrown into the mix, a very sick child who could bring down every

For certain, The Infinity Gene is fast-paced with a likeable heroine. Thankfully, for genres of this nature, for me as a male reader, the romance was nicely touched upon, sweet and just sprinkled in strong plot points and the heroine, Aeris, is never reduced to a blubbering figure who pines over her guy, Hunter.

My problem is the story’s credibility. Many times, Aeris is on the run, but at the same time there are many periods in the book where she’s hiding and resting, even riding horses, and dis

Amazing cover pic again !! Though I wonder, what does the change in color of the butterfly wings symbolize. Maybe it is the infinity gene that has prompted the color change :D

I read the first book towards the beginning of the year and it is now towards the end, but I found everything came back to me while I read. There is less action and explosions in this book, but Aeris appears to have grown up a little with everything that has happened to her. I think my problems with the first book itself had to do with Aeris' maturity level and it not making sense to me as a fellow musician.

In this book, we learn a little more about the science behind the original genetic modifi

The Infinity Gene is a book I will not soon forget. The premise was so original and this book played out like an amazing fast paced sci-fi movie. Sue Wyshynski was a new author to me, but just reading the synopsis of her first book (The Butterfly Code) which I also read, I knew this book would be right up my alley. I am a huge fan of sci-fi/dystopian books and I was so happy that this story was totally different than the other books in this genre.

I received this eBook from Xpresso Book Tours.

I really wanted to enjoy this book as much as I did the first. But I honestly had some issues with it.
Before I delve into the issues, I do want to say what I do like about the book though, because it wasn't all terrible.
Aeris is definitely a lot easier to read about in this book. She's far less scatterbrained, more composed. Although it is obvious that her genetically modified genes are causing quite the ruckus for Hunter and the rest.

I was very kindly given a copy of The Infinity Gene by Sue Wyshynski for an honest review.
I had previously reviewed the first book in The Girl on Fire series, The Butterfly Code and really enjoyed the mystery and suspense. The Infinity Code continued with Aeris and Hunter 's story and did not disappoint.
In the second book of The Butterfly Code series Aeris is determined to get on with her life and return to being a normal human despite still having some side effects from Hunter saving her life.

I received a free copy of this book with the option of leaving an honest review.

The Infinity Gene is what I expected of The Butterfly Code! The plot moves quickly, it is action-packed, and we finally learn more about Aeris' mother.

While the book can be classified as science fiction based on its premise, it reads more like an urban fantasy because it lacks the social commentary that science fiction is known for and there is very little discussion regarding the research. Having said this, Aeris is

The Infinity Gene picks up right where The Butterfly Code left us with the bad guys still wanting Aeris and trying to take her captive. Brewster King needs Aeris to so he can save his little girls life. King has captured Aeris’ best friend Gage with intentions of using him as a bargaining tool to help him save his daughter’s life.

I loved the first in this series.  From the cover to the seductive story line.  And with the same elegant lines on the cover, I had high hopes that the story would match up.

And honestly?  It did - for the most part.  I feel like I have been waiting for ages for this book to land on my e-reader.  And so, I will admit to being disappointed by the length of this volume.  Simply put, I wanted more.

One of the reasons why this felt like such a quick read was due to the pacing.  Barely stopping for bre

The Infinity Gene (the second book in the Girl on Fire series) promised action and thrilling science fiction romance and boy did it deliver! This well written installment in the series was filled with heart pounding excitement and swoonworthy romance between Aeris and the super sexy Hunter. I especially enjoyed reading about Aeris’ developing powers (she’s becoming a total bad ass and I love it). I’m dying to know what exactly she is (and what the infinity strand is). Although this story can be ...more

Fantastic story with action, drama, and romance. I don't normally read books like this, but I'm sure glad I did. I was hooked from the start to the beginning.. I found many surprise elements to the entire story. Without giving anything away. I don't think she knows who to trust. I know, I didn't in the book and it gets intense. I almost felt I was reading sci-fi with a twist and a good one at that.. My heart went out to both, but even more to Hunter. Aeris is really very strong and is trying to ...more

This was a story with a lot of energy packed into it. It wasn’t overwhelming, and it keeps you turning the pages. I read it all in one sitting, and I never found myself bored or no longer invested. Definitely check this book out!

A stirring, nail biting sequel to Aeris' story!

Aeris finds herself in the fight for her life, Hunter's and Nessa's lives too! Dealing with treachery and betrayals, she is adamant that she will find her mother's cure for the Winterborn Survivors' condition, Hunter's problem with the Tribunal and Nessa's cancer. And maybe even more important, find her way back to Hunter!

Bon bon…. nous revoilà avec Aeris. Perso que je n’ai plus vu depuis 2015.
J’ai relu ma chronique pour me remettre dans le bain. Et… j’ai bien fait de le faire.

Rien n’a changé et on reste toujours avec cette histoire qui est à double tranchant.
D’un côté, l’histoire continue là où on l’a laissé. Une Aeris pleine de convictions qui veut tout faire pour son amour de Hunter. SAUF QUE Hunter une fois de plus, Hunter ne sert à rien dans cette histoire. Pourquoi parler de lui ? Pourquoi continuer à faire

I love the concept of this sci-fi/paranormal action romance. I loved the action-packed narrative of The Butterfly Code but thought it lacked nuance and tension. Sadly, The Infinity Gene does not improve on a good start. The characters are unlikeable and the non-existent chemistry makes this a questionable romance. However, it's the generic plot that does this series in. The action, the science, the plot all whither on the vine. Good idea, poor execution.
