Summary

Infinite2 is a bold continuation of Robinson’s best-selling science fiction novel, packed with mystery, action, and mind-bending twists. 

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.

Maybe. 

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.

A MUST LISTEN

firstly I have to tell you, I was NAMECHECKED in this book.. I didn't know I would be so imagine my shock when I heard my name, which is a distinct name being read out by Mr Bray.

I can't begin to tell you how much I loved this sequel. I know Jeremy didn't plan on writing one, but my gosh I'm glad he did.

I won't ruin the plot or story line for anyone, but it's the sequel we didn't know we needed.

Bray is as always exceptional, the outtakes are hilarious.

Excellent in a different way!

Was perplexed for the first few chapters but it came together and moved at a pace.

A solid follow up.

While I did find the book a bit slow and repetitive at the start, and personally found the callbacks to Robinson's got a bit too carried away (although I'm sure lots of fans loved it, and that's awesome) the book pays off big. The original was phenomenal and a tough act to follow, and while it may not have hit the same highs, it is a great read all in.

Excellent, it has to be one off my favourite listens period . the author pulled out an amazing story which lends itself well to the.the 1st book, doesn't disappoint. RC Btay is on top form as always really brings each character to life, you must get this if you enjoyed the 1st book it's a must. Regards Harvey

As good if not better than the original

I bindged this book over a coupled days, totally stands up as it's own book while staying true to the first. Also having the god king of audible RC Bray narrating was awesome.

fantastic book that will trip your mind!

From the start Jeremy begins his mind tripping story that mixes a bit of inception (the movie) style reality questioning narrative. The characters are well defined and RC Bray makes it all come alive as usual. well worth the listen but be prepared to be mind tripped all over the place!

keep it up Jeremy!

loved this book so different from the first book but keeps its originality. the only bad side is that when I listen to your books I need rc bray reading them. brays narrative is with out a doubt the best on audible. love both your work.

Infinite and a lot more

The first book was brilliant the second takes the ideas a whole step further. The concept is well written and takes you on journey of possibility, if you could exist in a realm of infinite possibility how would you cope? There are some dark places you can live in but love is a powerful thing to keep you existing.

Mind Bending Reality Roller Coaster

I was a huge fan of the first Infinite and have been really looking forward to the sequel.

The story continues on from the end of book 1 but also from the end of NPC and Exo Hunter. In fact Infinite 2 is an endless tribute to the many incredible worlds that Jeremy Robinson has created. So many of his characters are referenced, its a roller coaster of shock and awe.

The use of Torment (another Robinson/Bray collaboration) in the narrative kind of freaked me out. That book is unreal and still gives me nightmares (“I’m sorry. I’m so sorry” *shudders*)

What is REAL, what is a simulation. You will question everything.

RC Bray is incredible and his outtakes at the end are hysterical

Psychotic

Absolutely insane. I fast forward through the book, just too much! Really? Nonsense from beginning till end. Should have only read the first book. Very upset that I spent money and time on this nonsense

Absolutely brilliant!

I can still remember the first time I listened to Infinite. The book blew my mind. It had so many twists and turns, and even weeks after finishing it I would find myself thinking back on that adventure. I will say I never honestly expected there to be a sequel. I am so glad to be wrong. Infinite2 is absolutely brilliant and practically a love letter to sci-fi fans in general and Robinson fans in particular. While there is no doubt that the book can be enjoyed merely for what it is, an excellent adventure, if you happen to be a fan of much of Jeremy's other work, it becomes even better. No spoilers, but I must say Jeremy's references to some of his other works adds an absolutely delightful extra layer of awesomeness to the story, and the Easter egg references to other sci-fi works ranging from Predator to Aliens to Starship Troopers just to name a few, thrilled my inner geek and had me smiling the entire time. Infinite2 is a wildly imaginative, smart, thrilling, mind bending adventure and I couldn't stop listening. Yep, once I started listening, I didn't stop until the ride was over. The book is narrated by the incredibly talented RC Bray who does a fantastic job of breathing life into Jeremy's words, and I absolutely loved that he included some of his bloopers at the end.

Perfect combination

This is the perfect combination of author and narrator. Jeremy Robinson writes top notch novels. Bray...he's the best narrator I've experienced. Most narrators make me cringe and even ruin going back to reading the book because I'll still hear that voice. Not this guy! Fantastic!

As good as the first...but different

I assume you read the first book. While this picks up where that left off, it is (as explained by the author at the end) intentionally different. But it is just a unique and mind-bending as the first. There are a lot of great new science fiction authors now--but how many will be the great ones of this generation? This is one. Also the narration is absolutely fantastic.

Wanted to love it, but. . .

I relistened to Infinite immediately before tackling this sequel. It had been awhile since I first read it, so I wanted the entire story to be fresh in my mind. Then I started Infinite 2. The first 20 chapters or so were like wading through a swap. Not pleasant. The story was repetitive and sucked. Then things started to get better. I liked the middle part. But the third act was just bam bam bam. Never ending strife. I was glad it ended. Jeremy Robinson set it up at the end for an Infinite 3. I’ll likely pass.

RC Bray was good. This is his kind of book. But even Bray couldn’t push this one into the good column for me. I’d like to see Bray take on some different kinds of stories. He’s kind of in a rut. (Sorry, Bob.)

It was okay

I don’t remember a lot about the first book. I listened to it not long after it released and enjoyed it. Overall I’m a fan of books about uncovering the simulation characters live in and both books in the series are no exception. I just wasn’t as riveted by the second book.
SPOILR ALERT! I think that’s because all punches were pulled, basically. The author kept using the same tension-devices with the same major characters over and over again too. It got really old. I look forward to more books from the author but they need to change their game up.

Really enjoyed it. It hit the spot.

Infinite 2 was great. Wasn't really sure what to expect after the first one. The nods and carry overs are great too. I felt like I liked this one more than the first if you can believe it. Also, I appreciate the author's note. Sometimes it's nice to hear vulnerability from the lord's of universes and get to know them better. I had no idea some of what he's been through. Keep fighting the fight, Mr. Robinson. Lastly, RC Bray was great as usual. Enjoyed the outtakes too. Usually, we only get those with Expeditionary Force.

Less Ambitious Than its Predecessor

I have been waiting for this book for quite a while, and though Robinson’s characters are fun and the style and story are entertaining enough (with great narration from Bray), I can’t help but feel somewhat disappointed by the final result. With such a mind-blowing start to this series, it seemed to me that what would come next would be less...frivolous. Not that I don’t appreciate some of the more imaginative elements of this sequel (apologetic zombies, for instance), but I had hoped that the story would take a more serious direction than it did. Whereas the original tale had quite a bit of heart, this one feels more like a rambling lark. The seemingly endless plot twists and power-shuffles tend to confound the narrative, lowering the stakes until there’s really nothing left to take very seriously. Is this reality? Is it a sim? Who knows? All of it might be turned on its head in the next paragraph. The take-backs become tiresome, but perhaps that was the point? To achieve a confusing world that upends the reader’s own grasp on reality? I could have a used a paired down narrative with fewer epic battles and more focus on the nature of the reality established in the first book. Aside from all of that, what we’re left with is a fun ride, quite a few laughs, but nothing very mind-blowing—certainly much less ambitious than the first Infinite.

This was written for JR fans

SO MUCH FUN!! If you've read a handful of JR novels your really going to love this story. He pulls a very Stephen King/Dark Tower esque maneuver that is completely excellent considering the setting of INFINITE. The original being my favorite JR novel, I had high hopes for this one. Expectations surpassed.
