Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: The Infinity Courts by Akemi Dawn Bowman // A Powerful Sci-Fi Debut With Plot Twists That Will Wreck You!
I thought that I would be ready for the ending of The Infinity Courts.
But I thought wrong, because absolutely nothing prepared me for the final twists during those last few pages! It’s been almost a week since I finished the book, and yet I still find myself in awe of them.
✧ Publisher: Simon Pulse ✧ Release Date: April 6, 2021 ✧ Genre: YA Fiction (Fantasy/Sci-Fi)
Eighteen-year-old Nami Miyamoto is certain her life is just beginning. She has a great family, just graduated high school, and is on her way to a party where her entire class is waiting for her—including, most importantly, the boy she’s been in love with for years
The only problem? She’s murdered before she gets there.
When Nami wakes up, she learns she’s in a place called Infinity, where human consciousness goes when physical bodies die. She quickly discovers that Ophelia, a virtual assistant widely used by humans on Earth, has taken over the afterlife and is now posing as a queen, forcing humans into servitude the way she’d been forced to serve in the real world. Even worse, Ophelia is inching closer and closer to accomplishing her grand plans of eradicating human existence once and for all.
As Nami works with a team of rebels to bring down Ophelia and save the humans under her imprisonment, she is forced to reckon with her past, her future, and what it is that truly makes us human.
From award-winning author Akemi Dawn Bowman comes an incisive, action-packed tale that explores big questions about technology, grief, love, and humanity.

Great review, Ash! The world building and concept sounds really unique, but I’ve read some reviews mentioning how the internal monologue felt preachy and repetitive, so I’ll definitely keep that in mind since it seems to be something a lot of reviewers felt meh about. Thank you for sharing!
i was Very scared i wouldn’t like this (i 5-starred both Starfish and Summer Bird Blue) and i am still scared honestly LMAO. what you noted about her motivation being related to her sister makes me feel… nervous… because I DO NOT LIKE unsubstantial relationships that are developed weirdly. nevertheless, the cover is absolutely gorgeous and i will stare at it 5ever
