Review ~ Fighting for Infinity (Kindrily #3) by Karen Amanda Hooper

Fighting for Infinity (The Kindrily, #3)ebook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: 30th April 2014

Every moment, every lifetime, every decision—including her choice to erase—has led Maryah to this. 

Two outcomes are possible: an infinite happy-ever-after with her kindrily or the final severing of her relationship with Nathan. 

Closer to the enemy than ever before, Maryah unravels the diabolical plan that Dedrick has been manipulating into place for centuries. Revelations, secrets, and lies surface faster than Maryah can process. She doesn’t know who to trust, what to believe, or how to save her loved ones from the desolate future Dedrick is so close to executing. 

Guided by an enigmatic raven-haired prisoner, Maryah fights body and soul to save Nathan, her kindrily, and countless others. But is her love strong enough to alter a prophecy written in the stars?

My Opinion

When I requested this book I forgot I hadn't read the second installment in the series. I enjoyed the first book but due to my ever growing tbr pile, I never got around to buying it. However, getting accepted for this book gave me the much needed excuse to buy and read the second one (Taking Back Forever) so I could start this book straight away after it--which I think worked out quite well.

I'm going to keep this review short as it is the final book in the trilogy so I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't read it or previous work. 

Fighting for Infinity was a good and pleasing end to the Kindrily story. There was plenty going on and I found that the author tied all of the strands together really well. The book flowed straight on from Taking Back Forever and I'm glad Nathan was brought back as a narrator. The overall story was constructed well with believable emotions and relationships while hardly any questions were left unanswered and I think that was a great thing considering all of the strings the author had created with her large cast of characters.

The overall plot was good but I just felt it was too long in places and the pacing could have been better. I wanted the action to start sooner and although it was good when it arrived, I did find myself skim reading parts in the middle as I felt they went on too long and sometimes were a little repetitive. The final battle seemed to be over before it started and I know Maryah had planned things but it still felt a little too easy.  I also figured parts out before the reveal but at least that didn't detract from the story.

Overall Fighting for Infinity was a satisfying ending to a point. It answers everything but the one detail of what happens to Nathan and Maryah after the final scene was what I wanted most an it's not there. In the note to readers the author suggested a short story for that and I would love it!
