Recruited by the Hystorians, a secret society that dates back to Aristotle, the kids learn that history has gone disastrously off course.
Scholastic's next multi-platform mega-event begins here!

History is broken, and three kids must travel back in time to set it right!

When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste stumble upon the secret of time travel--a hand-held device known as the Infinity Ring--they're swept up in a centuries-long secret war for the fate of mankind. Recruited by the Hystorians, a secret society that dates back to Aristotle, the kids learn that history has gone disastrously off course.

Now it's up to Dak, Sera, and teenage Hystorian-in-training Riq to travel back in time to fix the Great Breaks... and to save Dak's missing parents while they're at it. First stop: Spain, 1492, where a sailor named Christopher Columbus is about to be thrown overboard in a deadly mutiny!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This latest attempt at a multiplatform, multivolume, multiauthor adventure is best approached as pulp fiction, as it doesn't hold together as well as its successful conceptual predecessor, the 39 Clues series. Dashner has constructed a seven-book time-travel arc and is responsible for the first and last titles, with others to be completed by such authors as Carrie Ryan and Matt de la Pena. Here, we're introduced to Dak and Sera, self-proclaimed history and science nerds who live in an alternate America presided over by the mysterious evil power SQ. After stumbling upon the Infinity Ring, the tweens find themselves hurtling through the ages to right wrongs, protect Aristotle's legacy, and save Christopher Columbus from a mutiny, all just in time for a French Revolution teaser finale. The standard first-volume hazards (slow start, no resolution) bedevil the text and are exacerbated by underdeveloped characters. Still, the yet-to-be-revealed interactive-package experience seems certain to buoy the ship. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Dashner's Maze Runner trilogy and the 13th Reality series are blockbusters, and the supplemental 3-D online game and full-color poster-map will further stoke the fires. Initial demand is a sure thing.--Medlar, Andrew Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""History is broken, and we need your help to fix it." What kid could turn down an invitation like that? Not fifth-grade best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste, who star in this kickoff to the seven-book Infinity Ring series (Lisa McMann, Matt de le Pena, and others will write subsequent titles). Dak and Sera live in an America beset by natural disasters and controlled by an organization known as the SQ (also, there are 48 states, and the U.S. capital is Philadelphia). Passionate about history (Dak) and science (Sera), both friends are drawn into an ancient conflict between the SQ and the Hystorians, who hope to correct "Breaks" in Earth's time line. Via the Infinity Ring device Dak's parents invented, Dak, Sera, and 16-year-old Hystorian Riq travel to 1492 Spain to prevent a mutiny against Christopher Columbus aboard the Santa Maria. It's a quick, straightforward adventure with a successful mix of action, adventure, and historical substance. An interactive online Infinity Ring game debuts alongside this installment; the second book, Divide and Conquer by Carrie Ryan, arrives in November. Ages 8-12.
