Scholastic’s Next Multi-platform Mega-event Begins Here!

History is broken, and three kids must travel back in time to set it right. 

When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste discover the key to time travel --- 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 — and it's up to them to fix it, with the help of teenage Hystorian-in-training Riq.

Each book in the series comes packaged with a full-color, two-sided, collectible Hystorian's Guide, a player's strategy guide to the online adventure at www.infinityring.com.



Follow the map, study the Guide, and save history!

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…

Coming out in October 2012

Hundreds of ships carrying thousands of Viking warriors are attacking medieval Paris. The Parisians are fighting back, but they can only hold out for so long. And that's bad news - especially since Dak has been captured and forced to work with the invading army while Sera and Riq defend Paris from within. No matter which side wins, the kids will lose . . . unless Dak can find an ally among some of history's fiercest warriors.

Coming out in February 2013

 Dak, Sera, and Riq return to the United States and walk immediately into a deadly trap. The year is 1850, and the nation is divided over the issue of slavery. In these dark days, the Underground Railroad provides a light of hope, helping runaway slaves escape to freedom. But the SQ has taken control of the Underground Railroad from within. Now Dak and Sera are left wondering who to trust . . . while Riq risks everything to save the life of a young boy.

These look great! I'm thinking they would be wonderful for my kids who nursed on Jack and Annie and now want something similar but for older kids. Thanks for sharing about great new books.
