However, you don't live as long as Lotus has - well beyond the lifespan of a normal human being - without picking up a trick or two, and Lotus is savvier than most. Catching him won't be easy. Still, his pursuers have a powerful incentive: their quarry is in possession of secrets that could reshape mankind's destiny - in particular, the fact that he's the only person capable of controlling the protective halo of weaponry known as the Chronos Ring, which is humanity's first and last line of defense against its enemies throughout the cosmos.
But human agents aren't all Lotus has to worry about. Also hot on his heels is an army of genetically-engineered horrors controlled by an exiled despot from an alternate dimension, who sees Lotus - and in particular, the Ring - as the pathway for both a return to power and the subjugation of humanity. It's up to Lotus to find a way to stop this menace, before the entire human race is enslaved.

What a beautiful story, truly out of nowhere the Chronos Ring series appeared and amazed me.
The author Earl E. Hardman wrote both books beautifully and left an opening for a continuation which I really hope will come because I want more of this excellent story !
Perfect narration by Mikael Naramore .
I got nothing bad to say here.
I full heartedly recommend this book to all.
I know that I reviewed this book honestly even so that I got it for free.

There was no way this was going to end well
Ian Lotus may be very human but he was certainly no ordinary man. For a start, no one knew how long he'd been alive - was it mere centuries, or even longer? - during which time he'd amassed an unknowable fortune and had time to develop skills far beyond that of the shorter lived person. He'd built the Chromosome Ring, the defensive shield surrounding the inhabited planets and to which only he had the key. And recently he had been recognised as the son of a near godlike alien.
But he was created by men in authority over the League of Planets and now also hated by his newly discovered younger half brother. Life was about to become difficult for Ian, following his escape from the holding planet on which he and his protector (gift from dad) on which they had been imprisoned.
This is a fun science fictional romp, well narrated by Mikael Naramore whose reading is pace perfect, well modulated and read with understanding. His voicings of all the characters is good, too, clearly differentiating them with suitable tones. Although the second in the series, it is possible to fully enjoy this tale without any knowledge of book one as all that is needed is given here. Not a serious book, raising no thought provoking issues, but it is a jolly good frolic with fights, near indestructible Cyrilllian robots, interplanetary travel (of the beam-me-up-Scottie kind), ambush and intrigue, betrayal and help from an unexpected course. Oh, and lots more.
Like I said, good fun.

I started listening to Infinity: Chronos Ring not knowing this was the second book in the series. I decided to go with it and see how I liked it from that perspective, which left me pleasantly surprised!
As the story progressed, the author did a great job recapping what was going on, so I never felt like I was lost.
The actions scenes were well portrayed and kept me interested in the story while offering amusing thought narration through the protagonist's view that give me a greater understanding of the situation.
The dangers Lotus come across during his travels were entertaining and left me on edge as Lots found clever ways to escape the ever increasing dangerous situation he found himself in. The only issue I had was with the computer character. I enjoyed the dialogue between the two characters, but some of the scenarios seemed a bit too farfetched.
Overall, I really enjoyed the story and would recommend it to anyone who loves fun science fiction.
I had no issues with the narration. Mikael does a great job of switching between character voices for both male and female. It was a pleasure listening to this book!

GREAT STORY, LOVED IT!
Is this the first in the series I've read/listened to, but it was awesome! Really liked getting to know Ian and the others involved. Action, intensity, a great story all around, and really loved the narration as well. I'm now going to go back and listen to the first one in the series, EON! Excellent!
