McMann & Nielsen have each written books for Scholastic's newest series, The Infinity Ring. This groundbreaking series allows kids to experience history like never before as they travel back in time to fix the Great Breaks, key moments in history that have gone off course. The adventure combines books and a fully immersive online game that put kids in the middle of the action aboard Santa María in 1492, at a medieval Viking invasion, in the Underground Railroad, and more.
Lisa McMann brings us Dak, Sera, and Riq who 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.
