Infinity Hold Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Infinity Hold

Bandos Nicos, convicted of murder, lives on earth in a time when incorrigible prisoners are sent to a faraway planet and left there. He is transported by spaceship to the planet with a group of other criminals. Arriving there, they are forced to cope with harsh environmental conditions, gangs of previously delivered prisoners and the fact that there are no existing laws or rules to follow. Bandos alligns himself with other prisoners, all lifers and considered the "dregs of society" and they form a cooperative unit, formulate laws and battle rampaging gangs out to enslave them. He learns to respect law enforcers, the kind of person he had loathed on earth, and fights his own problems.
