About this item
Due to the corrupt machinations of a secret group called the SQ, history is almost irrevocably shattered by the 21st-century. Poland is known for having the first atomic bomb, France has an intact royal family, and there are 48 stars on the American flag, just to name a handful. These instances are known as the Great Breaks to the Hystorians, a group that has been attempting to subvert the SQ since Aristotle originally founded it. This dark tinkering has started causing natural disasters that are becoming more dangerous. When fifth-grader geniuses Dak Smyth and Sera Froste are shot back in time to 1492, along with Riq, a teenaged language enthusiast, they must find a way to both fix the Breaks, but also save Dak's lost scientist parents. This is the first book in the Infinity Ring series.
