Next week I’ll go into more detail about the book I’m releasing soon, but for those who need to get caught up on the series, here’s what you’ve missed…

I happen to have a few extra copies of a couple of books laying around, and I will send them, one per person, to anyone who asks for one in comments. When they’re gone, they’re gone!

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!

Now Dak and Sera are left wondering who to trust . . . while Riq risks everything to save the life of a young boy.

Next week, I’ll tell you about BEHIND ENEMY LINES, and what I consider to be one of the coolest spy stories in history!


  1. My son has books 1-3 but would love #4 or #5 if you have any left. Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Noel, I have no extras of Mutiny in Time. How about a hardcover of Book 2, though? Send me your address to

  3. I would really love to have the first book in the series, but I’d rather pass, because I am outside US (Philippines to be exact, shipping would be crazy.) and I’d rather someone else have it.

    But thanks for the offer ;). So excited for your new series and I am definitely and patiently waiting for The Shadow Throne.

    You’re so great!

    Merry Christmas to you (already).

    I’ve been planning on reading this series and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s so cool how each book is written by a different person and it will be interesting to see how each author’s writing style comes into play in their book. I think it’ll be a real fun read! 🙂

  6. Sounds really cool… But I’d let others have it because I’m going away for awhile…
    Anyways, my class was bummed when we finished The Runaway King because book three isn’t out yet and they won’t have the same teacher next year to read it to them. So are you giving away other books like The Shadow Throne too?

    • Micah, yes there will be a giveaway for The Shadow Throne here on this blog in December. Stay tuned!

    • Xander, I’ll have a contest in December for giveaway copies of The Shadow Throne. I don’t know yet if I’ll be getting any extra copies of The Iron Empire, but if I do, I’ll post a giveaway for them too.

  17. AHH! I missed it, I wanted to get as many of those books as I can! Some kid keeps checking out The Infinity Ring series, so I can’t read them :L
    I doubt you have any more copies, or any of The Infinity Ring, I guess I’ll have to go to the….. Public Library D: (Oh, that place is evil, I get bad vibes from it) (<– Oh maybe because I don't like having to talk to people- I can't even order chicken nuggets DX)

    • I think my copies are spoken for now, but hopefully you’ll get a chance soon to start reading this fun series!

    • I love the public library D:

  18. Jennifer,

    I love the Ascendance Trilogy and was digging around your website to see if you would be in the DC area soon. I was sad to see you wouldn’t be! I would love to have a free copy of your book and just ordered the Eliot series for my 8 year old brother for Christmas. Thanks for all the great reads and can’t wait for the February release date!!!

    Eliana, 6th Grade

    • Thanks Eliana! I would LOVE to get out to the DC area – hopefully one day soon. I hope your brother enjoys the Elliot books!

        • It’s one of my favorites in the series. I hoe you’ll enjoy it too!
