#BookReview: Infinity Son (Infinity Cycle #1) by Adam Silvera

Synopsis: 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.

My Review: After hearing about this book and getting a copy I was so excited to read it.  I had high expectations but those died pretty early in this story.  The first pages had me wondering what in the world was going on and I felt very lost.  I loved the letter at the start of this ARC and the love the author had for the City of Bones series. This one had the same vibes as the Shadowhunter series but sadly it just didn't have that spark that Clare puts forth.  

I really enjoyed how right at the start the MC is talking about how this event and such felt like their first Gay Pride event.  That was a nice change of pace as in other books that I have read its not just put out there.  So it was great to have it out in the open and not hidden in the background.  The characters in this one are all diverse in may ways from being LGBT to being POC and more. Those were great. 

I think my biggest issue with this one was the story and the writing.  It was done in a way to be over the top as well as being confusing and just doesn't have enough need to know information at the beginning of the title.  You're just tossed into this world with no explanation and I really wished that the author would have taken the time to introduce us to the characters and the world.  Maybe with a small prologue about their world and who everyone is or something.
