The Infinity Trap

How far would you go to find your missing father? For Zeke Hailey, a teenager living in the 23rd century, even Mars is not too far. Zeke’s dad is one of the Mariners, a mysterious elite of psychics who have conquered Outer Space. Now he’s vanished on a secret mission.

But Zeke is an ordinary schoolboy without a shred of his father’s psychic powers. Armed with nothing but his wits, he bluffs his way into the prestigious Mariner’s school on Mars in search of answers. Mind-reading teachers and psychokinetic bullies are the least of his worries. A ruthless archaeologist is seeking the Infinity Trap, an ancient machine of unimaginable power and lair to an evil as old as the Universe. An alien artefact downloads the language of the long dead Martians into Zeke’s brain. Thanks to this newfound skill, Zeke alone understands the apocalyptic danger about to be unleashed.

Not only must Zeke rescue his friends, but humanity itself. If he can first survive a planet filled with demons, outlaws, and androids, not to mention quicksand and dust storms. And, as the odds stack against him, will Zeke make the ultimate sacrifice—his father?

Gravity’s Eye
On Mars, your best friend sometimes turns out to be your worst enemy.

Zeke Hailey is struggling with life at the Chasm, the 23rd century school for psychics. His extrasensory skills have dried up and there’s a prehistoric robot out to kill him. At least he has a new mate, in the shape of late comer Fitch Crawley.

Only there’s more to Fitch than Zeke realises. The boy has a genius for hypnosis, making fools of the teachers. Fitch has an invisible pet too, a creature armed with deadly venom. Zeke and Fitch team up with an old foe, setting off on a Martian road trip. But this search for answers will bring them face to face with monsters and, most dangerous of all, a demon from beyond time. Zeke will have to do more than survive his mind-bending friend and the ancient killer robot.

As the universe starts to collapse, Zeke must choose between saving his friends or the human race. For nobody but Zeke can stop the apocalypse of Gravity’s Eye.

News: The Infinity Trap Official Launch

It is with great pleasure to share with you photographs from Ian C. Douglas’ official launch of his recently published young teen science fiction novel, The Infinity Trap

The Infinity Trap’s official launch took place in the Alan Sillitoe Room at Nottingham’s Waterstones. Around 40 guests turned out and the book sold well.

The event kicked off with a speech by Ian on the importance of Science Fiction. For Ian it’s inspirational. Firstly, the genre makes us focus on the secrets of the universe. Secondly, it suggests a better future, where humanity is master of their existence, not slave. And lastly, Sci-fi can be a mirror, reflecting back to us what it is to be human.

Pippa Hennessy, Development Officer for the local Writer’s Studio, grilled Ian on his writing process and the making of the book. The floor was opened up to a Q and A and some lively debate followed about transgressive young adult fiction.

The presentation ended with Ian reading a hair-raising excerpt. This was described as animated and exciting. Then the bubbly was uncorked and the party continued for some time.

The following are some photos taken from the event (noting the majority are published in this post with permission from Tracey Holland).

Excellent Review of Ian C Douglas’ The Infinity Trap

Taken from author and bloggist Lee Murray’s blog site:

http://www.leemurray.info/infinity-trap/

The Infinity Trap is what happens when Ender’s Game, Harry Potter, Star Wars and Grange Hill are popped in a Tardis and shaken about a bit to create a wonderful, gripping could-be-the-end-of-the-world tale for those reluctant boy readers. With strange languages, bots and prophecies, The Infinity Trap is the story of Zeke, who has cheated on his entrance exam in order to get himself to Chasm, an elite off-world school for psychics, where he hopes to pick up the trace of his missing father. But something more sinister than the usual school bullying is going on at Chasm and when the school’s youngest student, Pin-mei, is kidnapped, Zeke must abandon his quest and set out to find the creature who took his friend. After all, the future of the universe could be at stake. But in a school where everyone has a psychic skill, it’s a tall order. Terrific dialogue, some wonderful technology and edge-of-your-seat plotting, makes The Infinity Trap the perfect book to drag middle graders and younger teens away from the screen and into reading.
