Book Description

27 Feb 2014 Infinity Drake

Humour and high adventure combine in the biggest, new action adventure in years – even if its characters are very small.

Infinity Drake – aka Finn – is off on holiday with his mad scientist uncle when they are summoned to a crisis meeting. Scarlatti, a lethal bio-weapon – an ϋber-wasp killing machine – has been released by a pitiless villain, with incalculable consequences for mankind.

UNLESS Uncle Al can shrink a military team to track down and kill the beast. But then disaster strikes – sabotage! Finn gets shrunk to 9mm and has to jump in a tiny Apache helicopter with three soldiers in a desperate race to destroy the beast that's out there, very angry and many times their size…

More About the Author

John McNally lives in an imaginary world where everything turns out okay in the end.

He began screenwriting to avoid wondering what he would be when he grew up and found himself trapped in 'development hell' for many years. Eventually he started work on a tunnel and managed to escape into the world of children's books.

Infinity Drake: The Sons Of Scarlatti is the first in a new series of adventure books: age range All Mankind / Womankind.

About the Author

John McNally is a screenwriter who’s worked with Aardman, Sony and the BBC. INFINITY DRAKE is his first novel and was written for his children (who, of course, knew nothing about it). Once it sold to a publisher he finally showed it to his kids. Luckily, they liked it, and now millions of others will too…

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant action story for kids 12 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover
HarperCollins have published some of my all-time favourite series books for kids. I'm talking The Saga of Darren Shan and Demonata, both by Darren Shan, Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy, and my own personal favourite - Will Hill's Department 19. With Shan now writing his Zom-B books for Simon & Schuster, and both Skulduggery Pleasant and Department 19 reaching their conclusions, I have been keeping my fingers tightly crossed, hoping that Harper will find something as good to fill this looming gap, and I should never have doubted them as head honcho Nick Lake and the team have pulled the proverbial rabbit out of the hat again: Infinity Drake: The Sons of Scarlatti by John McNally is everything I hoped for and more.

If I had a checklist of everything I would be looking for in a first-in-series book, then Infinity Drake would have a tick in every single box:

Non-stop action and adventure from beginning to end - triple check
An intelligent, brave and, most importantly, genuinely likeable lead character that kids will love rooting for - triple check
Multiple instances of near-death, life on the line peril for our hero - check
A just-as-interesting cast of supporting characters - double check
A superbly nasty villain with a truly diabolical plan for world domination (and one that we haven't seen before) - triple check
Great dialogue - check
A thread of humour woven though the book, to take the dark edge off the nastiness of the villains plans - check
An original concept that we haven't seen in a book for the 9+ age group in recent years - check
Smart prose with vocabulary hasn't been dumbed down and therefore challenges readers - check

I think you can probably tell from this that I am a fan, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for 'boys who don't read' 24 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this for book for my 13yo son, who rarely reads because 'books are boring, mum', and I ended up reading it myself! It's a real page-turner for all ages; warm, funny and nerve-racking in parts. Can't wait for the second installment.
