I enjoyed this one ore than the first one lit got very dark and very unnerving for a book I feel is for 5th or 6th graders , but it was really captivating with the virus. ( )

While the story itself is an adventurous one, there are hints and suggestions about a bigger story. Tick's growing powers, Mistress' Jane's change, and Sato's growing trust in the Realitants all suggest that there are more interesting and complex storylines to come. ( )

The Hunt for Dark Infinity is the 2nd book in the 13th Reality series. James has done an excellent job continuing the series with this book. The writing and he plot hold up well and the book is a real page turner. It is also a little darker than the first book.

Tick and his friends Paul and Sofia have been spending time together near the end of summer break, enjoying each others company and hoping for a letter from Master George to ask them back for another adventure. It arrives a couple days before the friends are to split up and go back home. They then have a strange encounter with Reginald Chu in the woods near the Cemetery. The day they expect to be winked to head quarters they are winked to a desolate wasteland where filled with strange twisted metal sculptures. It appears Master George is giving them another round of tests and this time they are much more dangerous.

Come and read this if you will
Who to trust? Who will kill?

As you read dangers abound
Need strong friendships all around

Plenty of choices Tick must make
The wrong one could be a life mistake...

This book begins with Tick, Paul, and Sofia getting a message from Master George that the realities are in danger.

He tells them that they need to meet with others to decide what must be done. Instead of going to Master George, as they should have, they are sent to another reality all together. They believe that Master George has sent them on a series of tests in different realities with deadly traps all around them.

Mr. Chu, from the Fourth Reality, is working on a new weapon called Dark Infinity, and Tick is in a race against Mistress Jane to find it first.

Before I started this book I wondered if I should read the first in this series, THE JOURNAL OF CURIOUS LETTERS. I can tell you that although it would help to get to know the characters by reading the first book, it didn't seem necessary. It was very easy for me to figure out what was going on.

I enjoyed this book very much, although it may be a bit long for the younger kids (8-10). THE HUNT FOR DARK INFINITY was well-written with an engaging storyline. I really liked the main characters, and it was enjoyable getting to know them.

I am eagerly awaiting the next story in this series. James Dashner is a gifted storyteller and will definitely keep everyone interested. ( )

Readers will be as puzzled as the characters, who tumble from one complex and outrageous situation to the next, rescued from each at the last minute--sometimes with no explanation. But it all holds together remarkably well, encouraging suspension of disbelief to make way for glorious flights of imagination.
