Infinity Shift is the second book in Robert Holding's Sci-Fi trilogy set in the 29th century, the sequel to 'Downtime Shift', which came out last year.
The story picks up eight years after the end of the first when things on Earth have moved on dramatically towards total schism. The major cities on the planet are still under the iron rule of the Eye, a highly sophisticated Artificial Intelligence. The 'Spacers', those who lived outside the Eye's reach above the planet, are increasingly aware of the need to make a complete break with the planet, despite still being dependent on some of it's resources. They're loosely in league with the 'Outsiders', the Infinity Corps, renegade Earth dwellers, also outside the Eye's reach in the countryside. The Corps had been mobilised by Evelyn Marcin, who has become a folk hero in her eight year absence.
The Eye's great advance in the meantime has been the development of Artificial Biology, bio-machines embedded in human followers, who are then able to subliminally control others emotions and behaviour. This dangerous step, however, looks like it might be about to backfire as Gaudynya, who has undergone the procedure, plots to use her power to her own advantage. Will Evelyn be able to live up to her name and legend in the fight for the stability of Earth. She knows she must take on Gaudynya and make great sacrifices for her vision, so the book ends on another cliffhanger, to be resolved in part three.
If you found Downtime Shift intriguing, complex and thought-provoking, you will certainly want to read how the main characters have moved on and cope with this new twist in their fates.

Epic Sci-fi action adventure!
Evelyn and Stan are the last of the Shifty's that were recruited and trained by the now defunct 'Organisation'. They may not have defeated the twenty-ninth century Artificial Intelligence, the EYE, entirely, but at least they had managed to check its progress enough for humanity to regain some of its lost independence.
After eight years of self imposed exile in the twenty-first century though, Evelyn had decided she needed to do the one thing they swore they were never going to do - return to twenty-nine!
...but why had she changed her mind?
...and why now?
Stan knew only two things:
First, there would be no talking her out of it.
And second... there was absolutely no way she was going alone this time!
They return to a disturbingly precarious three-way power-balanced future to find that someone may have finally found the key to break the deadlock.
...and that sometimes the devil you know might be your only ally!
