Kai really has to rely on herself more because she is on her own. Avan is now an Infinite and his memories are locked away in him somewhere, Reev although still there, seems to be more distant. Kai has also lost touch with her powers. It’s almost like defeating Nanu has made her a whole new person that she has to get used to. Plus she still has her the whole taking over for Kronos thing looming over her. Whether she want’s to become a full Infinite or not.
We have all the characters again with Irra, Kallas, Reev, Mason and Avan. There are also some new interesting characters.
I have enjoyed the world that Lori has created and the role the Infinite play in it. Now that the borders are down, it’s able to be more expansive and other cities are reaching out. This gives Kai the opportunity to find a way to breath again by breaking out and exploring. What she finds though is definitely more than she bargained for. I loved the plot because we get a larger look at the world but I also loved how much it really focused on Kai. It’s also kind of sad though but it’s that kind of sad that makes sense and even though it’s sad it’s also kind of good for Kai too.
We are introduced to some new powers but I definitely love Kai’s ability to control time. I’m glad that we get to see more glimpses of what should could be able to do if she trains with Kronos.
Second books are hard but I really feel like The Infinite is a great addition to Gates of Thread and Stone. It manages to continue the story but add new elements to make it interesting. Although I felt a little sad at times, I thought it was really good.
