Scholastic Announces Infinity Ring Series
Posted on December 27, 2011
Scholastic has announced plans to launch Infinity Ring, an alternate-history time travel series for readers ages 8-12. The series will be written by a team of six authors. The series will combine books, an interactive Hystorian's Guide map and an online game experience.
In the series two kids discover a hand-held device (The Infinity Ring) that acts as the key to time travel. They discover a battle for the fate of manking that has been raging for centuries. The kids are recruited by a secret society called the Hystorians. They also learn that history has gone disastrously off course and they will have to help fix it.
Infinity Ring will launch simultaneously in September 2012 in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Book 1: A Mutiny in Time is written by author James Dashner, who also outlined the program's overall story arc. Dashner will be followed Carrie Ryan (Book 2; November 2012), Lisa McMann (Book 3; February 2013), Matt de la Pena (Book 4; June 2013), Matthew Kirby (Book 5; September 2013), and Jennifer Nielsen (Book 6; December 2013). The last book in the Infinity Ring series also will be written by James Dashner (Book 7; March 2014).
