Infinity Son (Infinity Cycle #1) (Hardcover)
Adam Silvera breaks away from contemporary and delves into the sci-fi urban fantasy world of New York with a queer Latinx male lead. One with magic and superheroes, some who are born (The Celestials) and some who are made (The Specters). In true Adam Silvera fashion this story in addition to its epicness has humor, love, and heartbreak. I was hooked from the first page and was on the ride the entire time. This is a simple world to follow since it does have a contemporary setting which is perfect for those who are hesitant about or just beginning their fantasy adventures. This book left me on the edge of my seat and left me wanting more after I read that jaw dropping last page.

A New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and IndieBound bestseller!
Balancing epic and intensely personal stakes, bestselling author Adam Silvera’s Infinity Son is a gritty, fast-paced adventure about two brothers caught up in a magical war generations in the making.
Growing up in New York, brothers Emil and Brighton always idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to rid the world of specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials are born with powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures.
Brighton wishes he had a power so he could join the fray. Emil just wants the fighting to stop. The cycle of violence has taken a toll, making it harder for anyone with a power to live peacefully and openly. In this climate of fear, a gang of specters has been growing bolder by the day.
Then, in a brawl after a protest, Emil manifests a power of his own—one that puts him right at the heart of the conflict and sets him up to be the heroic Spell Walker Brighton always wanted to be.
Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed.
