Leaving off from the end of Curse of Infinti, Rachel Hetrick's second installment of the series steps everything up from the stakes, expansion of world building and character growth, and I was amazed by the whole journey.

Following the events of the first book, Ellayne has a new mission in order to bring stability to her land and new challenges from within to deal with. I enjoyed watching her journey and felt very real with the choices she made, endearing and kind all at once. The other character

I enjoyed reading Defying Infiniti so much. The book picks up when the first one ended and is an amazing continuation of the story. I think the author does an incredible job of developing the characters and their relationship from the first book. It is filled with incredible imagery. I cannot wait to read the third book in the trilogy!

After reading the first book in this trilogy I was left on the edge if my seat wanting more. Wanting to know more about each character and what was going to happen. Again, after reading Defying Infiniti, Rachel Hetrick has done it again. I am anticipating what is in store for these amazing character in the third book.

Defying Infiniti is the second book in Rachel Hetrick’s YA fantasy trilogy. It continues Ellayne’s story as we discover more about her past and how it will affect her future and the future of her kingdom.
I enjoyed the pacing of this story. The end of each chapter left me wondering what would happen next and, overall, I thought Rachel did an excellent job of keeping that tension throughout the story.
Kade was, without a doubt,

Ever since reading the first book in The Infiniti Trilogy, I have been curious to see how Hetrick decided to develop Ellayne's story post-curse. Book 2 did not disappoint! The story was captivating and engaging from the very beginning. I enjoyed getting to know the characters from book 1 even better, and I was also very impressed with the development of the new characters, and how quickly I grew invested in their roles in the story.

Defying Infinity is the second book in the Infiniti Trilogy by Rachel Hetrick. Ellayne finally broke the curse of infiniti and goes on a mission to help her father get out of the mirror he's captured in. She has to go places she never wanted to go and do things she never wanted to do, but in the end it's probably worth it.
Defying Infiniti is a great and suspenseful sequel. It continues the story well and keeps up the suspense. I like how we see characters from the first book again and how we als

Defying Infiniti was a fun and light read over a weekend for me! The first book, The Curse of Infinity, was a little predictable to for me, but the second one opened up the story in an exciting way. I was excited to learn more about the dark and light magic, and LOVED the twist this book brought between the relationship between Ellayne and Kade. Hetrick does a great job at developing characters, as she grows them, but doesn't ch

What an enthralling story! A continuation of the first book, The Curse of Infinity, Hetrick’s Defying Infinity draws you into its world, and you won’t want to put it down. I love how creative this story is, and it gets less and less predictable, throwing in surprises that you don’t see coming.
The characters are great. You really feel them and their thoughts throughout the adventure, and I especially love the strong women role

Another amazing read! This sequel had so many memorable and interesting twists and turns. I loved the way the characters developed even more beyond who they became by the end of the first book. The end of the book really hit me with its wholesome message that each person defines who they are by the path they choose, no matter what life or circumstances throw at them. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review, and I can't wait for the last book in the trilogy to come out ...more

I absolutely loved the enhanced character depth and the expansive added back story of several of the characters in this second book. Equally creative are the oftentimes shocking plot twists which left me saying, "What?" out loud, as I thought I knew where things were going, only to be thrown into another mysterious direction. I cannot wait for the third and final book to see how all these puzzle pieces meld together to create their epic climax. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for ...more

I read the first book “Curse of Infiniti” by author Rachel Hetrick and the book has drawn me deep into the story that I just can’t wait to read the second one and I received the second book “Defying Infiniti” as an arc reader, I’m about 80% done with the second one and I will say that the author had put in her great illustrations into the book, characters have been carrying great conversations and the way author depicted every single detail in the story is remarkable. I would strongly recommend ...more

Even better than the first. This is a great continuation of the series. It's really great to see Ellayne come even more into her own. Quite suspenseful in parts, I can't wait for the next one.

I received a review copy, all opinions are my own.

When the world went nuts at the beginning of 2020, the pandemic led to the closing of the school I was employed at overseas. It was then I decided the time had come for me to fulfill my childhood dream of becoming a published author. I have been writing for almost all of my life (some of my first memories are of creating stories).

With the inspiration of many incredible authors on Youtube, I have
