Meet Infinity Lost

In the near future, one corporation, Blackstone Technologies, has changed the world: no disasters, no poverty, and life-altering technology. Blackstone has the impunity to destroy—or create—as it sees fit.

Infinity “Finn” Blackstone is the seventeen-year-old daughter of Blackstone’s reclusive CEO—but she’s never even met him. When disturbing dreams about a past she doesn’t remember begin to torment her, Finn knows there’s only one person who can provide answers: her father.

After Finn and an elite group of peers are invited to Blackstone’s top-secret HQ, Finn realizes she may have a chance to confront her father. But when a highly sophisticated company AI morphs into a killing machine, the trip descends into chaos. Trapped inside shape-shifting walls, Finn and her friends are at the mercy of an all-seeing intelligence that will destroy everything to get to her.

 

With no hope of help, Finn’s dream-memories may be the only chance of survival. But will she remember in time to save her own life and the lives of those around her?

 

With introductions in order, it's time for a sneak peek of Infinity Lost!

 

Excerpt from Infinity Lost by S. Harrison, on­sale November 1, 2015. Published by Skyscape, an imprint of Amazon Publishing. Copyright © 2015 S. Harrison.

 

“Finn, whats your dad like in real life? I mean, really like?
What I want to say is that my father is just a shadow in the night to me, and that she probably knows more about him from TV inter­ views and e­mag articles than I do. Im not sure why, maybe its self­ preservation, but I choose to lie instead.

Well, one time on my birthday we went horse riding and had a picnic by the lake. We took a boat out and he taught me how to fish.Im such a terrible liar, but Bit doesnt seem to notice at all.

Wow. Its so hard to imagine him doing father and daughter stuff like that, yknow, normal dad­type stuff,Bit says, gazing thoughtfully out the window.

I know. Hard to believe, right?I say the words with the same thinly veiled sarcastic tone as before. That seems to go right over her head as well.

Professor Francis is at his witsend. People are chattering, texting madly, and snapping pictures out the windows. Miss Cole is just sitting there, smiling like an idiot, so shes no help at all. Brody Sharp begins chanting, Move that bus, move that bus!which, since were already parked, makes no sense at all, but it isnt very long before others join in. Its ridiculous.

Out of the corner of my eye I see Ryan Forrester, who until now was quietly reading, lean over the aisle toward Margaux. She leans toward him, flicking her silky blonde hair and beaming her perfect white teeth, her huge, pale­blue eyes flashing beneath her fluttering eyelids. Millie strokes her auburn hair behind her ear, raises one eye­ brow, and gives a knowing look to Miss Cole, who smiles back before promptly shifting her gaze hungrily to Ryans lips.

I think Im gonna puke.

Brent Fairchild spots the exchange and sits up in his seat like a meerkat. That is his kinda­girlfriend Ryans talking to, after all. Ryan says something to

Margaux that I cant hear above the chatter, and she nods. Suddenly she stands and shouts, Everybody shut up!The bus immediately goes silent.

I hate her so much.

Not only for the fact that she thinks shes the queen bee of this school, but also, and especially, because everyone else seems to think so, too. Apparently even Ryan Forrester. I tell myself that it shouldnt bother me, but it really does. Im halfway through a thought about how stupid he must be when he catches me looking at him. He smiles a crooked smile and holds our connection for that millisecond lon­ ger than necessary, that minuscule amount of time that, in an instant, makes you both realize that its more than just a look. My eyes widen, my stomach tightens, and I quickly turn away. Totally busted. I quickly flump back against the seat.

Now that everyones quiet, a look of relief washes over Professor Francis. With a trembling hand, he mops his brow with his handker­ chief. Thank you, Miss Pilfrey. Now that I have your attention, Id like to lay down a few ground rules for the tour today.

Theres a low groan.

As you obviously all know, todays reward field trip will take place at the main research and development facility of Blackstone Technologies, the largest advanced­technology company in the world.

Hells yeah!Dean McCarthy shouts from the back.

Professor Francis throws a frown in his direction. From your computers, to your phones, to food production, to military hardware and weather stabilization, Blackstone Technologies, and of course its founder, Dr. Richard Blackstone, is responsible for the innovations that make the lives we live today possible. Please remember that you are extremely lucky to be here. You are the first school students to ever be permitted beyond the hallowed doors of Blackstone Technologies.” 

 

Sounds great, right?!
