All I wanted was to spend a last few weeks with the man I love before tearing myself away to lick my wounds.

But we will have no tender respite. No final few magical days. Not us. Not now that I’ve learned a death sentence hangs over my head. Powerful forces are descending upon the cozy little town of Deep Cove, Maine. Beneath the cover of whispering trees, along the shores of wave-tumbled beaches, people are vying for power.
And I have become the center of the war.
For Hunter’s sake, I’m desperate to run away. Far away. To hide so that no one can find me. For if I stay, I’ll destroy us both.
But there’s a child involved now. A seven-year-old girl who’s been pulled into my deadly vortex.
There can be no running. No hiding. Not with the child’s life at stake, too.
Startling changes are beginning to take hold of me–I can feel them burning through my veins. My only ally is the man I love, the one I can never be with. I’m desperate to hide the truth from him. He can’t know what I’m becoming. For if I put my faith in him, if we stand together, we’ll both be dead.
Romantic. Dangerous. Action-packed. Discover the exciting sequel to the sci-fi romance thriller that’s captivating readers around the world. For fans of The Pretties, Twilight, and The Mortal Instruments.

4 Stars
Aeris Thorne is a genetically modified human, but she's fighting against that, trying to return normal to save those she cares about. She knows she and Hunter can't make a life together, not in their current forms and not if she wants him to stay alive. Powerful forces are coming to check on them, to verify that an agreement they made decades ago still stands true. Aeris would leave, would hide if she could, but now a child is involved and she feels an obligation to help her, despite the danger her father is willing to inflict on Aeris, Hunter, and the others. Changes are happening within Aeris though and she can only keep them a secret for so long.

"I have to become normal again. I just have to."

The Infinity Gene is the sequel to The Butterfly Code from the Girl on Fire series by Sue Wyshynski. It's a long addition to the series, with the first released in 2015. It took me a minute to get back into the series, to find myself in the trans-humanistic world again, but once I jumped in I was hooked. Aeris is a compelling character, full of strength, naivety, love, and determination. During the first book she was thrust into a new world, one that she thought would give her answers about her mother, but instead left her with more questions. In book two we see even more so how she has embraced this new version of the world she has found and how there's a place for her in it, even if it wasn't truly meant to be. Hunter is back, of course, and as lovely as ever. We don't get enough of him, though we do see the lengths he is willing to go for Aeris. We also revisit with several of the other genetically modified humans, as well as meet the others that we have only known of by title, The Winterborn Survivors.

"I'll be that girl of yours who never gave up. The one you were proud of. And I won't stop until this is over."

As far as storylines go, The Infinity Gene follows immediately after The Butterfly Code and is packed full of mystery, suspense, emotions, and a bit of action too. There were handful of time where the role of science fiction in the novel felt stretched, like our imagination needed to work overtime to really see how this could work. The world has also shrunk, the novel's characters are so closely tied together and interactions with others is so small that it's hard to imagine the rest of the world outside of the lab and the areas the survivors inhabit. I did love the twists though and really enjoyed Aeris coming into her own, she's a standalone character in this novel, showing just how powerful she can be, both as a woman and as a modified human. The twist of having the villain role in King also be for a good reason was intriguing and really lent itself to the idea that ultimately these characters are trying to save the world.

"I will not go down like this. I will not let this end."

The Infinity Gene is a solid new release in the Girl on Fire series and I already cannot wait to get my hands on book the, The Modified Girl. Sue Wyshynski has created a world that is just like our own, only with transhuman alterations that make it both sci-fi and a bit dystopian. I really enjoyed how much knowledge about the modifications was shared in this book and can't wait to see how it pans out for the characters. The Infinity Gene is a must read, so pick up The Butterfly Code ASAP if you haven't read it yet and get caught up on this mysterious and engaging read.
