Over a million books sold!
William Chanokh is immortal...and he’s trapped on the Galahad, an interstellar starship on a never-ending journey through open space.
His only companions are Capria - mortal and in cryo-sleep - and Gal, an artificial intelligence, and the love of his life, with whom he spends every waking moment in the "Great Escape", a virtual paradise. After untold years living countless lives, Gal begins acting strange. Possessive. Violent. Paranoid.
Positive that something in the real world is causing her to malfunction, Will attempts to leave the Great Escape, but he finds himself a prisoner. Guided by a voice from reality, he is thrust into a series of torturous narratives, each one designed to break his will and keep him trapped in virtual reality.
Betrayed by his digital love, his long-term memory overwritten, and enduring violent manipulation, Will painfully peels back layers of simulation, fighting to reach reality 1.0 - where the nightmares are real.
New York Times and number-one Audible best-selling author Jeremy Robinson takes listeners on a heart-wrenching journey to the edge of the universe and beyond, where distinguishing reality from simulation might be impossible.

I read 30-50 books a year, mostly sci-fi. I don’t say this casually when I write that the first “Infinite” is my favorite book I’ve ever read. It strikes such an amazing chord with me.
So I really don’t feel it fair to say that this book is 5 stars with that information as a qualifier. However Jeremy states in the author’s note that he wasn’t going for a repeat of the first novel and that is completely understandable. I may have enjoyed the book a little more if I knew that going into it.
I hate even writing this but it just can’t compare to the first novel. BUT, I say that more as a compliment to the fist novel and not an insult to the second. I mean how can you possibly top the first?
Overall, it’s well crafted and cerebral. I enjoy Jeremy Robinson’s imagination and application of real world physics. He’s a gifted writer truly. I could go on about his other books too.
Without giving away anything of the book I will say this. Don’t expect quite the same emotional intensity that the first novel offered, don’t try to guess what the big reveal may or may not be and just enjoy the ride. It’s got plenty of twists without seeming contrived or forced.
If you loved the first book you’ll like this book. I’m just going to appreciate each book differently for different reasons. If you’ve read any of the author’s other novels then you may be in for a real treat.
Jeremy if you read this review know this. I will continue to ponder the story in this book for some time. That is possibly my highest praise. Ive caught myself thinking about the first novel randomly in the years since I’ve read it. This end of this book, like your others, leave me feeling the way a truly good story should: sad that there are no more pages to read.

I had high hopes for this as I’ve recently (re)read my way through all the other books in the timeline and have really enjoyed the various worlds and threads (and characters) weaving their way together into a larger whole.
The overall story was enjoyable as Will fought his way through the simulations and tried to figure out what was real and what was still part of the Great Escape. I liked the inclusion of the "doughnut theory" of the universe and the idea of JR himself being Will's distant relative was clever, bringing in the potential for real connection between the main character and Jeremy's other works. However, in delivery this book just seemed to me to be a bit of a mess, just far too much jumping between different worlds/characters and “remember this from my previous books” chapters that were just too distracting. Many of these just took me out of the moment as I tried to work out where they were from and for me it just seemed to get in the way of the bigger story.
Overall the concept was great, it just didn't quite deliver for me. I'm all for the inter-connectivity that Jeremy is creating here with the timeline but there was just too much in this particular book. I'm still hopeful for the remaining three books and hope that The Order and Khaos follow more of the pattern of their respective legs of the timeline (both of which have been really enjoyable) rather than the pattern of this one.
Be aware before you start reading, at least the first 7 chapters will mess your head up.
Persevere however, and you will be rewarded.
It's funny, scary, nerve shredding and fast paced, as well as heart rending and emotional on occasion.
One of the things at which Mr Robinson excels, is creating seamless personalities for his characters, even if those characters aren't necessarily human.
If you are a well read fan of this author, you will have plenty to get your teeth into, with many of his trademark cameo appearances, as well as his usual aptitude for making a laugh out of the characters most dire situations.
This a great book in my opinion. As always, my disclaimer is this...if you haven't read the first, do so, you will understand this book much better.
Cannot wait to see where Jeremy takes us on his next adventure.
It is like someone was brainstorming every imaginable scenarios possible chosen from fantasy-horor stories ever written for kids and just wrote them down without any second thought. If this sounds weird, it is.
