Infernal Infinity is a dystopian sci-fi novel by John Paul Warren. After the cataclysmic bombardment of asteroids destroyed all life on planet Earth, the 250,000 survivors of humanity sought sanctuary in Apollo City on the moon. Under the authoritarian rule of Governor Edmund Sears, art, science, and literature became the sole domain of the privileged. But resistance sprouts in the form of the Underground, led by the idealist Jim Callaghan and his friends Richard Barker and Sophie Ramirez. After Sophie dies in an attempt to attack Sears' right-hand man, Sam Crawford, Jim and Richard travel through a quantum portal that takes them to a parallel Earth untouched by Doomsday. As Jim and his friends traverse other parallel universes, they discover a subatomic virus that threatens to destroy the multiverse. Will they be able to save humanity's future?

Author John Paul Warren takes readers on an ambitious sci-fi odyssey, incorporating some deeply fascinating hypothetical scientific theories bound to entertain lovers of the genre. Infernal Infinity is a fast-paced wild rollercoaster ride where you're never sure what will happen next. This keeps you on the edge of your seat as the plot twists and turns to a resounding climax. This is a plot-driven story where the characters slot into their roles to move the narrative forward. Jim is one of the more fleshed-out characters, and his relationships with Sophie and Richard were the major highlights of the story for me. If you're looking for a concisely written sci-fi novella, Infernal Infinity is the book for you.
