In this superhero psychological thriller, an enigmatic man named Victor is assembling a team of people with special abilities to fight the growing dangers to our way of life. He recruits the telepath Theo Flaherty, the reality-distorter Chad Matthews, and the immensely powerful Abby Fisher. Despite their different worldviews, these four people must learn the difference between hoping for a better world and actually creating one — because destiny doesn’t wait for anyone.
Can they come together in time to stop the threat looming in the distance?
“A powerful book that tackles more issues then just powers and conspiracies, it also tackles issues like spiritual infinity and the responsibility of those with power. This is a must for fans of X-Men and similar titles.”
“This book is an interesting and easy read. LeDrew and Curtis have created their own line of characters with super powers and I’m excited to see where they take it. This book lines up interesting potential and I’m eager to explore more.“

” For anyone looking for a thought-provoking thriller, this is mandatory reading. I rate this extremely high.”

“It was different from what I expected but at the same time that was what impressed me the most. I can’t believe how well [the authors] managed to blend all of those story lines together and how well you did it. And the fact that [there are] a group of major characters running around and they’re all fully developed believable people is incredible.”

“Super powers and poker. Mysterious school for gifted children, growing conspiracy. Take all these cliches and add in talk of spiritual infinity and the responsibility of those with power and place it into the hands of good writers and bam! Awesome read!”

” “Destiny doesn’t wait for anyone” is the catch phrase for this book: it’s the perfect short description of what this book is all about. Infinity is the start of the story of an enigmatic man, Victor, who brings together four unique people from varying backgrounds after searching for those without limitations and who could truly change the world. The first book of the series follows Abby, Chad and Theo as they work to unravel their pasts. The three plots are separate, but they flow together very well… Do you like when a story leaves room for your imagination to run wild? Do you enjoy following different characters with unique backgrounds through a new world? Then Infinity is for you.I’d recommend checking out this book and jumping into the adventure!”

“I don’t read a lot of this genre, but I may have to start. This book was more “literary” than most literary books I’ve read lately. It follows three separate plots that move quickly and seamlessly, and you never find yourself bored or questioning what’s going on. There’s great dialog and amazing characters, each of them unique and well-developed. These seem like people. Fully formed and three-dimensional each, especially Abby and Chad.
There are some great moments scattered throughout and an amazing ending. There are no wasted sentences in Infinity… Everything means something, and nothing is by accident, even if it isn’t readily apparent on the first read.
In the contending for one of the best books published in 2010.”

Ellen Curtis was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Her aptitude for the written word began at a young age, when she began filling paper with stories and other scribbles. Those scribbles eventually began to make more sense, and in 2008 she published her first collection of short stories. Since then, she has gone on to co-author the Infinity series with Matthew LeDrew, among her other literary endeavors.
Ellen earned her Bachelor of Arts from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2015, and was under the illusion that completing her studies would mean she would have more free time. In reality, it simply means she does more reading, albeit for work. When she actually does find a spare moment, she enjoys spending time near the ocean nursing an espresso and daydreaming about the day she can fill her home with the happy bleating of Pygmy goats.
Matthew LeDrew holds an Honours Degree in English from the Memorial University of Newfoundland with a minor in Anthropology, and studied Journalism at College of the North Atlantic in Stephenville, Newfoundland. He was honoured to be a jury member of the 2018 NLBA awards.
He has written twenty novels for Engen Books: the ten book Coral Beach Casefiles series, The Long Road, Cinders, Sinister Intent, Faith, Family Values, Jacobi Street, Touch Your Nose, Infinity, The Tourniquet Reprisal, and Exodus of Angels the latter three of which with co-author Ellen Curtis.
He lives in St. Johns, Newfoundland.
Since 2007 he has traveled all over Canada promoting his work as well as teaching seminars on writing and publishing. He also helps young Newfoundland authors become published through Engen Books.
