              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 Wal...kers-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.

The newcomer: Charlie's just move...d to Sydney from Melbourne, and she's determined not to fit in. She's just biding her time till Year 12 is over and she can head back to her real life and her real friends ...The loner: Nobody really notices Matty. He's just another guy in a hoodie. But at home Matty is everything: he's been holding things together ever since he can remember, and since his mum's latest breakdown, he's never been so alone. The popular girl: Well, the popular girl's best friend ...cool by association. Tammi has always done what's expected of her, but when her boyfriend pressures her to do something she's really not ready for, will she finally stand up for herself? The politician's daughter: Gillian's the good girl. She's careful not to do anything that will reflect badly on her dad, but this comes at a price: she's never really had fun. Now that her one friend has moved overseas, Gill is pinning all hopes of a social life on one thing: the yearbook committee. Ages: 14+
