In this book, most everything is made and owned Blackstone Technologies. It would be if Google or Apple owned and controlled everything including the weather. Infinity is the daughter of the reclusive man who owns Blackstone. Although she was home schooled for most of her early childhood, she knows very little about her father, and barely even saw him. As a teenager she is finally allowed out to attend boarding school where no one knows who she is, except best friend. Recently she has been having these dreams, almost like memories, that she just can’t seem to figure out. One thing she knows for sure- something just isn’t right and the pieces of her memories just are adding up.

What I liked best: S. Harrison does a fantastic job world building. The setting feels unsettling but familiar at the same time. (How many people couldn’t go a day without their cell phone or computer?) Harrison does a good of job keeping the reader engaged. By mid- book the action hits a high point and it doesn’t stop. There is a lot of violent, and sometimes gory descriptions in the book. This may make it a page turner for some and might not be for all readers. But the action is comparable to current movies and TV shows. The story has been described as Jason Bourne meets Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which is pretty accurate. I am interested in seeing where the rest of the trilogy goes.

What left me wanting: It is the first book in the trilogy so there are a lot of unanswered questions. You don’t get to know too much about Infinity as a person right off the bat. While this can sometimes prevent readers from getting invested, I liked the way, as a reader, the mystery unfolded and pieces about Infinity were revealed as she was trying to discover herself.

If you are looking for high action and a little intrigue, Infinity Lost is a good debut novel to start. Solid and entertaining, it will definitely keep you turning pages.
