The Infinity Division series follows a group of teens who have the ability to travel between dimensions via a very special device. Each place they go is Earth—generally within their own town of Wells—but a different reality. The differences are sometimes minor—sometimes monumental.
The best part of doing a series like this is the variety. The setting is always changing. I can work within the same town, yet have a completely different set of rules. The characters are always changing. Some of my favorite moments from Omega are when the main cast encounters alternate versions of people they knew back home. In some cases they’re so hilariously different. In other instances, it’s almost heartbreaking.
There’s more dimension hopping—or, skipping, as Cade would say—in Omega. There are an infinite number of realities, and unlike in Infinity (which took place solely on Kori’s world), our heroes visit multiple ones in this book.
The ideas for these different realities came to me from various sources. Some were worlds I’d love to see—like the world where everything was flavored with chocolate or the one with no cars. Everyone got around on horseback, yet they were all sporting massive computer tech. Others came from conversations with friends and family. Like the world where all foodservice jobs were done by robots or the world where bananas were extinct (No crime there. Sorry banana lovers). One of my cousins is a vegetarian and we had a lengthy conversation about what it might be like to live in a world that had outlawed meat, and so meatless world was born 😉
They weren’t all quirky and harmless. Our heroes wandered into some pretty nasty places, too—and that continues in book three. But, that’s an entirely different post 😉 There were so many possibilities, so many roads to travel. I enjoyed each and every second I got to spend with these characters—and I hope you will too!
And I have to admit, I was a little jealous of the gang when they hit chocolate world…
What about you? If you could live in an alternate version of this world, what’s one key thing you’d change?
OMEGA by Jus Accardo
One mistake can change everything. Ashlyn Calvert finds that out the hard way when a bad decision leads to the death of her best friend, Noah Anderson.
Only Noah isn’t really gone. Thanks to his parents’ company, the Infinity Division, there is a version of him skipping from one dimension to another, set on revenge for the death of his sister, Kori. When a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with Ash, he’s determined to resist the magnetic pull he’s felt for her time and time again. Because falling for Ash puts his mission in danger.
But there’s more going on in Ash’s alternate universe than either of them knows: a mysterious project called Omega. A conspiracy spanning multiple Earths and revolving around none other than Ash. Its creators would do anything to keep Omega secret…
