The Infinity Ring is a new interactive series like The 39 Clues. It’s one of those books that comes with extra bits and pieces so that you can find out more about the story and the characters. The Infinity Ring series is all about time travel so you follow the characters through different time periods. Each book comes with a Hystorian’s Guide, which is your key to unlocking the next adventure in the online game.
Book 1 is called A Mutiny in Time by James Dashner and it’s out at the end of the month.
When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste stumble upon the secret of time travel — a hand-held device known as the Infinity Ring — they’re swept up in a centuries-long secret war for the fate of mankind. Recruited by the Hystorians, a secret society that dates back to Aristotle, the kids learn that history has gone disastrously off course.
Now it’s up to Dak, Sera, and teenage Hystorian-in-training Riq to travel back in time to fix the Great Breaks . . . and to save Dak’s missing parents while they’re at it. First stop: Spain, 1492, where a sailor named Christopher Columbus is about to be thrown overboard in a deadly mutiny!
