Description (From Amazon):

Sam: likes loud music, wears black eye-liner... and sees monsters. Nick: wears Che Guevara knit-wear, big specs, loves sci-fi... and designs computer viruses. Annie: dresses like a Sunday evening period drama, lives with her granddad... and fights like a ninja. When Sam helps out the mysterious Annie, he and his cousin, Nick, are drawn into a world of excitement and danger. Terrifying androids roam the streets of York seeking the awesome power of the Infinity Bridge, a device that could signal the end of our world as we know it. All who stand in their way are being eliminated. The three teenagers are propelled into an action-packed race against time, involving alternate realities, airships, clockwork killers.... and Merlin. Sometimes the monsters are real.... Infinity Bridge is a brand new fast-paced sci-fi adventure suitable for teenagers and adults alike.

My thoughts:

I liked this book. Sam is your usual 'punk' boy. He wears eye liner, dyes his hair black, wears black clothing. But he's a nice boy trying to avoid being tossed into the asylum like his big brother. After his brother mentioned seeing monsters, Sam's parents admitted him to an institution. That's when Sam withdrew, not wanting to let on that he saw what his brother saw. But when a man in a pin-striped suit showed up out of the blue and lasers started flying overhead, well, who better to help Sam and Nick? You got it. Big brother to the rescue.
Annie is super sweet and super Ninja. I loved her character. She always had a good comeback. Much like Nick's mom. But I can't give too much away. The book is full of twists and turns that would keep any young adult or adult entertained. It was a fun, fast paced, epic, sci-fi frollick. (Say that five times fast!)

I give this book 5 out of 5 skull and crossbones.
