  • Thank you Netgalley and Entangled Teen!

    Thank you Netgalley and Entangled Teen for granting my wish to read and review this book! All thoughts and opinions are my own. I have so many questions! I'm hoping they will all be answered in the sequel, Ruling Destiny coming out in February. Natasha is swept away to Gray Wolf Academy where a large group of people can time travel and they are expected to steal artifacts here and there for Arthur Blackstone, the headmaster of Gray Wolf Academy. Natasha has a gift and she's been experiencing episodes of Unravelling: seeing, sometimes unexplained, visions through time and memories of her past. While learning about history, sword fighting, numerology, and how to blend into whichever time she is sent to, Natasha feels a connection with the handsome Braxton, the person who guided her to Gray Wolf. The students at Gray Wolf are hiding secrets from Natasha and she beings to realize nothing is what it seems living at the Academy... At first I wasn't a big fan of reading from Natasha's POV. She is not the most relatable character in YA but when it hit the 30% mark I started to like her more with every chapter. She knows there are things wrong at the Academy. No one ever wants to give a straight answer and that's why I have so many unanswered questions! I wanted to learn more about her father and his connection to the Academy and Arthur Blackstone. There is definitely history there. I want to know more about why Arthur is so insistent that Natasha has to find the pieces of the Antikythera Mechanism. There is A LOT of unexplained plot lines and hints in book one. We don't know a lot about Braxton and so I'm very suspicious of him and that prologue in the beginning. We do get some answers but they are vague and create more questions. I do love that Alyson Noel put the numerology piece in front of her book. It doesn't have much to do with the story itself so if you're not interested in it you can skip it but it was a fun add-on. Side note: I'm an 8! At the end of the e-ARC there is a chapter/piece in Braxton's POV and it made me wish he had some chapters in the finish copy. I'm crossing my fingers we will get an extra chapter or two from Braxton in Ruling Destiny. He is a very interesting and mysterious character and so is Elodie. They both were at the Academy the longest, besides Arthur, and have so much experience in time travelling and have a lot of secrets. If not Braxton, I would love to read a chapter from Elodie. She is not my favorite character and honestly I don't like many of the characters in this book. I couldn't form a connection with any of them except for Natasha, Braxton, Elodie, and Arthur. I thought I would like Song more but then she ends up disappearing and no one cares where she went. I was hoping Natasha would find a friend in Song but before she could be developed, she's gone. I love history, time travelling, and the idea of studying up on the period you are tasked to visit. We don't get a lot of showing and reading about Natasha's time at the Academy and her studies. Instead of letting us experience that with her it's passed off as "a month goes by..." The book is already long at 400 pages but I wish it were longer so we could get more of a picture of what the Academy is like and the classes Natasha has to take to better her gift and what she needs to do while in a different time period. Everything in Stealing Infinity is a huge mystery. The characters and the world building needed more developing. I wish Noel had given Natasha more places to visit instead of only visiting the same time period and party during her first Trip. Though a lot is unexplained or ventured I do love the book and the short chapters, think of Crave by Tracy Wolff. There is a great amount of history and I wanted to learn more. The pace is flawless and kept me hooked on my kindle until the last page. I'm looking forward to reading Ruling Destiny in the future. 4 stars

  • Mystery, action and romance

    I’ve frequently seen this authors work but as it seems to be primarily aimed at teens I had resisted buying any. However I spotted this with its concept of time travel and have to admit my curiosity got the better of me and I’m so glad it did. Natasha is a young woman who seems to be at loggerheads with society and has become quite introverted since her father simply disappeared. Her memory of him seems limited and if it wasn’t for her longtime friend Mason I think she would be very lonely indeed. Things start to change when Elodie comes to her school as she’s cool, gorgeous and just seems to ‘get’ Natasha. Going to a club with Elodie changes Natasha’s life as she finds herself accused of shoplifting and even more bizarrely shipped away to a mysterious school . The students seem unwelcoming, there’s Braxton, a boy Natasha met on that fateful day at the club and surprise surprise Elodie is there but this queen bee is anything but friendly ! This captured my attention from the very first page and I have to say the mysteries around the school and it’s inhabitants were very intriguing. It’s hard for Natasha to know who to trust and that follows through for the reader too ! Morally grey supporting characters with secrets although having been given a huge clue about their true purpose at the beginning it was interesting reading how Natasha coped when the true purpose of the school was revealed. This is about young adults and I thought the way emotions and feelings were explored rang true because first love is all consuming and jealousies can be overriding. Natasha herself was a feisty character who didn’t back down which only made her more likeable. Braxton is still a mystery but I do feel that he’s perhaps not the bad guy here. The most exciting part of this has to be the time travel and the author does a tremendous job of explaining and simplifying it. If there are numerous time lines although someone is dead in ours they are still alive in their own so not they were but they are and as the story progressed that just became more abundantly clear. I loved this element of the story and I am very much looking forward to reading the rest of this series as it so far has mystery, action, romance and is sheer fun to read. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

  • Entertaining!

    Oh, this was fun! I am a fan of stories involving time travel so I was really eager to give this book a try. I was hooked by this one right away and liked Natasha a lot. I was never quite sure who could be trusted and I just couldn’t seem to put the book down because I had to know what would happen next. This turned out to be an incredibly entertaining and exciting story. Natasha is a high school student just doing the minimum amount necessary to get through her day. Ever since her father left, her mother doesn’t seem to care and has become an empty shell. When Natasha meets a new girl at school, she is drawn to her and eager to go along with any of her ideas. When she gets in trouble, she is whisked away to Gray Wolf Academy which is a totally different learning environment. She grows close to Braxton and a couple of other students as she works to try to fit in. Things ramp up as she learns about the real mission of the academy. This book was so hard to put down. There were quite a few surprises worked into the story and I loved the fact anything could really happen at any time. I loved the way that time travel was worked into the story and I enjoyed the fact that there were a few puzzles to solve along the way. This book really had a little bit of all of the things that I hoped for and I am looking forward to reading more of this series just as soon as I can get my hands on it. I received an advanced review copy of this book from Entangled Teen.

    Thanks for your feedback!
