Rating : 4 hearts




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.


Infinity son tells us the story of Emil and Brighton, two brothers who don’t really look alike.

Emil is an introvert while Brighton dreams of glory and glitter.

I set up the world for you, angels live among humans unfortunately since a tragic event where humans were killed by divine creatures.

Brighton is obsessed with his Vlog he is a fan of divine creatures and dreams of becoming one. Unfortunately for him it’s Emil who will have this chance even if he doesn’t want it. It is on Emil that the weight of saving the world will rest. He won’t be alone, of course.

I liked this first volume, which sets up the world and the characters. I like Emil very much. He’s full of love and compassion. Brighton is the exact opposite of the characters I like.

The story is nice and there is still a lot to discover.

Adam Silvera took a risk by going out of his usual register but the hero remains endearing. And yes, he’s gay and that’s something you don’t see very much in Fantasy.


Infinity son nous raconte l’histoire d’Emil et Brighton, deux frères qui ne se ressemble pas vraiment.
Emil est un introverti alors que Brighton rêve de gloire et de paillettes.

Je vous mets en place le monde, les anges vivent parmi les humains malheureusement depuis un tragique événement où des humains ont été tués par des créatures divines.

Brighton est obnubilé par son Vlog il est fan des créatures divines et rêve d’en devenir un. Malheureusement pour lui c’est Emil qui aura cette chance mème si il n’en veut pas. C’est sur Emil que reposera le poids de sauver le monde. Il ne sera pas seul bien entendu.

J’ai bien aimé ce premier tome qui met en place le monde et les personnages. J’aime beaucoup Emil, il est plein d’amour et compassion. Brighton est tout le contraire des personnages que j’apprécie.

L’histoire est sympathique et il reste encore plein de choses à découvrir.

Adam Silvera a pris un risque en sortant de son registre habituel mais le héros reste attachant. Et oui, il est gai et c’est une chose que l’on voit très peu en Fantasy.

En bref : Un premier tome qui met l’eau à la bouche
