Reviewed by Justine Reyes for Readers' Favorite

Infinity: Quest for the Holy Grail by Catalina DuBois is the first in a series of fantasy novels revolving around two characters, Sara and Matthaios. The pair were cursed by the goddess Eris to forever be star-crossed lovers in every lifetime they lived. In Infinity: Quest for the Holy Grail, Sara and Matthaios take on the form of Sarah and Matthew, two individuals living in an Arthurian reality, where knights, chivalry, and magic all coincide. The story opens on a gloomy note as Matthew hesitantly leaves his parents to compete in a tournament in the midst of an epidemic.

Along with Matthew and Sarah there are several other great and entertaining characters. My personal favorite was the loyal, kind, and somewhat naive character of Percival, who served as both Matthew’s friend and squire. I absolutely enjoyed the slightly romantic and comedic relationship between Percival and Morgan. Infinity: Quest for the Holy Grail is a great start for this series. Despite the overall plot being mostly disconnected from the Arthurian land and characters, it was a great move on DuBois’s part to begin the story of Sara and Matthaios in a place many readers are familiar with. DuBois created a great balance between romance, action, and drama. The complex narrative kept me reading and, in the end, I wanted more. Thankfully there are other books already out in this series to satisfy my desire to find out what happens to the star-crossed lovers. I implore others to read this book; it is a short and fun read.
