Review: Infinity (The Infinity Division, #1)

Infinity (The Infinity Division, #1)
Author: Jus Accardo
Publication Date: November 1st 2016
Publisher: Entangled TEEN

From the moment Kori Anderson is introduced we know she has a short temper, irritating habits and is a romantic. Before her mother died two years earlier, she told her that "Real love started in your heart and went straight to infinity." Kori keeps this memory close and is an important part of who she is.

Kori is also an artist who paints murals on old walls in out of the way places and has become somewhat of a secret celebrity. 'Love from here to infinity' is what had been etched on her parents' wedding bands. Kori writes these words as the finishing touch on her latest wall art, which is inspired by her mom.

Kori has a complicated relationship with her father who is a general in the army. While they were once close, their communication has become difficult and strained since her mother died. They are living almost separate lives and she knows little of what he does. Just before her father is going away on one of his missions, a police officer catches her painting her latest wall. Her father then arranges chaperones - Noah and the enigmatic Cade Granger, to look out for her.

After Kori is inexplicably attacked by a stranger named Dylan, Cade and Noah come to her rescue. She realises she was targeted, but why? Dylan seems to know her and asks her questions that she has no answers for. Noah and Cade have opinions about her, although she's never met them prior to earlier that day when they turned up at her house. It seems her father is in charge of Infinity, a secret government project which was developed to allow access to different dimensions. Noah and Cade are from a parallel Earth!

Kori has a great personality. She's strong-willed, funny, courageous, tough and caring. The interaction between Cade and Kori highlighted their attraction for one another and made the soul mate theory believable and exciting. The intriguing storyline was fast-paced, thrilling and revealed lots of surprises. Dylan is menacing enough to be a terrifying adversary. Accardo provides enough detail to make the idea of parallel worlds understandable. I am very much looking forward to reading the sequel and finding out even more about the Infinity Division and the other Earths.

From Goodreads:
Nobody said being the daughter of an army general was easy. But when her dad sends a teenage subordinate to babysit her while he’s away… That’s taking it a step too far.

Cade, as beautiful as he is deadly, watches Kori with more than just interest. He looks at her like he knows her very soul. And when he saves her from a seemingly random attack, well, that’s when things get weird.

Turns out, Kori’s dad isn’t just an army general—he’s the head of a secret government project that has invented a way to travel between parallel dimensions. Dimensions where there are infinite Koris, infinite Cades…and apparently, on every other Earth, they’re madly in love.

Falling for a soldier is the last thing on Kori’s mind. Especially when she finds herself in a deadly crossfire, and someone from another Earth is hell-bent on revenge…
