Title: Infinity Son
Author: Adam Silvera
Publication Date: January 14, 2020
Balancing epic and intensely personal stakes, bestselling author Adam Silvera’s Infinity Son is a gritty, fast-paced adventure about two brothers caught up in a magical war generations in the making.
Growing up in New York, brothers Emil and Brighton always idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to rid the world of specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials are born with powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures.
Brighton wishes he had a power so he could join the fray. Emil just wants the fighting to stop. The cycle of violence has taken a toll, making it harder for anyone with a power to live peacefully and openly. In this climate of fear, a gang of specters has been growing bolder by the day.
Then, in a brawl after a protest, Emil manifests a power of his own—one that puts him right at the heart of the conflict and sets him up to be the heroic Spell Walker Brighton always wanted to be.
Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed..Why am I excited?
Well, first of all PHOENIXES! Then of course there’s the whole Spell Walker (my brain keeps going to White Walkers…lol) and specter thing and I’m super intrigued about them and how the whole magic system works. Also, there are a TON of queer characters in this fantasy and I’m here for it! I’m also really looking forward to reading about the brothers’ relationship as well. And, well, uhhh, PHOENIXES! Can we also take a moment of pure appreciation for this cover the book gods have graced us with?
