Happy Monday, Savvy Readers! Did you know today is known as Blue Monday? The third Monday in January, today is known as the saddest day of the year (although there isn’t any actual scientific proof of this)! Nevertheless, Monday’s can be difficult, but the right book can make them a day to remember, and today’s featured read is no exception! Fans of fantasy, prepare yourselves and your My Book Pledge shelves because the most-anticipated YA fantasy of 2020 is HERE!
From The New York Times bestselling author of They Both Die at the End, Adam Silvera, comes a gritty, fast-paced adventure about a magical war, generations in the making. That’s right – Infinity Son is this week’s My Book Pledge Featured Read!
Ever since they were young, brothers Emil and Brighton have idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to protect the world from specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials were born with supernatural powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures. A gang of specters is growing bolder by the day, and the fear they sow is making it harder for anyone with powers to live peacefully and openly in the world.
Shortly after their eighteenth birthday, Emil and Brighton are attacked by a specter, and, in trying to defend his brother, Emil manifests a power that shouldn’t be possible: phoenix fire—a power that only a specter could have.
Convinced that he is the key to finally ending the war, the Spell Walkers want Emil to join their ranks, and they’re willing to take Brighton too if that’s his condition. For Brighton—even if he’s powerless—the chance to fight specters with his heroes is a dream come true. For Emil, the constant fighting—and the painful new power—is a waking nightmare. Much as they hate to admit it, the brothers are faced with an undeniable fact: one of them has what it takes to be a hero, but it’s not the one who desperately wants it.
Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed. Who will live forever, and who will die trying? There’s only one way to find out…
Infinity Son is such a fantastic book, and completely different than anything we’ve featured in a long time!
