Series: The Infinity Courts #1
Eighteen-year-old Nami Miyamoto is certain her life is just beginning. She has a great family, just graduated high school, and is on her way to a party where her entire class is waiting for her—including, most importantly, the boy she’s been in love with for years. The only problem? She’s murdered before she gets there.
When Nami wakes up, she learns she’s in a place called Infinity, where human consciousness goes when physical bodies die. She quickly discovers that Ophelia, a virtual assistant widely used by humans on Earth, has taken over the afterlife and is now posing as a queen, forcing humans into servitude the way she’d been forced to serve in the real world. Even worse, Ophelia is inching closer and closer to accomplishing her grand plans of eradicating human existence once and for all.
As Nami works with a team of rebels to bring down Ophelia and save the humans under her imprisonment, she is forced to reckon with her past, her future, and what it is that truly makes us human.
From award-winning author Akemi Dawn Bowman comes an incisive, action-packed tale that explores big questions about technology, grief, love, and humanity.
Westworld meets Warcross in this high-stakes, dizzyingly smart sci-fi about a teen girl navigating an afterlife in which she must defeat an AI entity intent on destroying humanity, from award-winning author Akemi Dawn Bowman.
The Infinity Courts is a young adult science fiction by Akemi Dawn Bowman. It is also the first book in the Infinity Courts series, which is a series that I have been super excited about ever since it was first announced. I think the idea of a science fiction based afterlife sounded so interesting to me, and I couldn’t wait to see this author’s take on it. The infinity Courts is the first book I have ever read from Akemi Dawn Bowman, but it will not be the last. I absolutely loved The Infinity Courts and I am desperate to continue on with this series and find out what is going to happen next. This was a fantastic novel! I think this book will be perfect for young adult science fiction and fantasy lovers.
In The Infinity Courts we meet our main character Nami as she is on her way to a high school party. Only, she never makes it to the party. Instead she finds herself in Infinity, which is a place where human consciousness goes when physical bodies die. I was so intrigued by this concept of the afterlife. I loved Nami and her whole band of rebels. If you are a fan of an ensemble cast of characters, you will love this gang! Nami and the rebels team up to try and take down Ophelia, who is a popular AI from earth and is the Queen of Infinity. It honestly cracked me up that the queen of Infinity was basically SIRI/ALEXA. What an awesome villain Ophelia was. The Infinity Courts was such a smart story and the world building was top notch. I can’t wait to journey back to Infinity. I wish I had the next book right now.
The Infinity Courts is full of magnificent writing, compelling characters who are deliciously morally grey, and a plot that honestly kept me riveted the entire time. I could not put this book down. Akemi Dawn Bowman managed to completely shock me several times, and the ending is slowly killing me because I don’t have the next book. I need it right now, right this instant. I am in love with this world and these characters. I don’t want to give anything away. but I will say this. This book is expertly crafted, and it is next to impossible to catch all of the twists and turns. I loved it all, even the parts that gutted me! The Infinity Courts is a must read book of 2021!
