Gr 8 Up–It’s been 10 months since the end of The Infinity Courts, and Nami is trying to save humanity from an afterlife run by a vicious AI named Ophelia and her Four Infinity Courts. Ophelia created other Resident AIs to run the courts, and the humans who are trapped in the afterlife are treated as servants—or worse. Mistakes and betrayals have put Nami on the back foot, and now she must make it through hostile courts where no one can be trusted. The first book balanced metaphysical questions like what it means to be human with a high stakes plot, but after a slow start this sequel is near nonstop action that nevertheless retreads old ground. The highlight of this book is Nami’s character growth as she comes into her own power. Nami is biracial white and Japanese.
VERDICT An exciting sequel that ultimately suffers from middle book syndrome.
