Publisher's Summary

Searching for a new home....

The Galahad, a faster-than-light spacecraft, carries 50 scientists and engineers on a mission to prepare Kepler 452b, Earth's nearest habitable neighbor at 1400 light years away. With Earth no longer habitable and the Mars colony slowly failing, they are humanity's best hope.

After 10 years in a failed cryogenic bed - body asleep, mind awake - William Chanokh's torture comes to an end as the fog clears, the hatch opens, and his friend and fellow hacker, Tom, greets him...by stabbing a screwdriver into his heart. This is the first time William dies.

It is not the last.

When he wakes from death, William discovers that all but one crew member - Capria Dixon - is either dead at Tom's hands, or has escaped to the surface of Kepler 452b. This dire situation is made worse when Tom attacks again - and is killed. Driven mad by a rare reaction to extended cryo-sleep, Tom hacked the Galahad's navigation system and locked the ship on a faster-than-light journey through the universe, destination: nowhere. Ever.

Mysteriously immortal, William is taken on a journey with no end, where he encounters solitary desperation, strange and violent lifeforms, a forbidden love, and the nature of reality itself.

...he discovers the infinite.

Jeremy Robinson, the master of fast-paced and highly original stories seamlessly blending elements of horror, science fiction, and thrillers, tackles his most ambitious subject matter to date: reality itself. An amalgam of the works of J.J. Abrams and Ridley Scott, Infinite is a bold science fiction novel exploring the vastness of space and a man's desire to exist, find love, and alter the course of his life.

    "Terrible sci-fi"

    I was genuinely quite excited to read this as the opening premise of a disaster befalling a generation ship leaving a sole survivor sounds really interesting. Boy was I disappointed.

    The first bad sign is that the back-story doesn't make any logical sense, and as more is revealed the less sense it makes. Then the author takes you through a plot with several large 'twists' but these are executed clumsily with no foreshadowing or dramatic buildup, so while they are a surprise they also lack any impact. The fact that these twists are often completely unbelievable doesn't help.

    The main character is ok, he feels like a cross between the protagonists of Ready Player One and We are Legion (We are Bob), but he does do some pretty inexplicable things that aren't well explained and there is some really ham-fisted character building later on.

    As science-fiction it's pretty terrible. I can live with magical technology but the universe is not internally consistent the and the author has a tendency to just invent and introduce some new piece of magic just when he needs it so it's full of 'deus ex machina'.

    Overall the book feels like a low-budget Hollywood action film. There isn't any substance here and even the action manages to be dull.

    R. C. Bray is great as always.

    "Heartwrenching, and Mind-boggling"

    Despite a somewhat predictable ending, it didn't lessen the genuine pain and loss it made me feel.

    A fantastic concept, and very well executed. R.C. Bray is as always incredible and brings life to likeable and funny characters. Excellent.

    Story
    "It's not where it ends - it's where does it begin?"

    Of course everything R C Bray performs ("narrates" is the wrong word at Bray's level) is great. My only real complaint is the title. It reveals too much. In the words of the book'sain character, "It's too easy". The title is almost like "The Return of the King". (Gee I wonder what happens in that book). What's bad about all this is that unfortunately this entire review is a spoiler. Either way though I thoroughly enjoyed it. The whole time I'm not trying to figure out how it would end but rather where it began.

    "interesting and engaging"

    This is a well written and thought out story, a very good mixture of action and suspense. A little cumbersome in the beginning but it was necessary to set the stage. Well read by my favourite narrator.

    "Reviews are inflated"

    The story is engaging and unique - initially more so than as the plot continued - but ultimately it is very sophomoric and was definitely not (for me) the special experience some reviewers portrayed.
    RC Bray is a major reason for the good reviews. The dude is just a master at this genre.
    Sadly, I was disappointed.

    "One of the best..."

    I've been a sci-fi fan for a very long time. By far, this is one of the best books I've ever read or listened to.

    R.C. Bray brings a whole new world of original premise and story to life. He is, without question, one of the best in this business.

    My bet is that you will enjoy this book immensely.
