Between that and the derivative plot ri, ugh. For more book reviews, and author interviews, go to BookBanter. Jun 02, Hilary. Apr 07, Roxanne rated it liked it. But I will definitely enjoy the third book and seeing jkhn John Twelve Hawks does with the characters, organizations, and what sorts of hope this series offers to our own world.
This one picks up not long after The Traveler Like that women don’t have it too bad in Ethiopia or that cappuccino shouldn’t be ordered after e. The Dark River is a scintillating novel that, like The Traveleris deeply and richly drawn, showcasing a superb and original voice. Bottom line, I was very disappointed in John Twelve Hawks. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
I expect to be embarrassed. Our hero experiences a reality altering situation and nawks accepts the his role in destiny in book one. Similarly, I felt like I was being given little lessons from time to time, with no apparent point. Los Seis Dominios prometen dar mucho juego.
Everything seemed like plot machinations to set up the third book. The numerous deaths, Michael’s ascension into power within the Bretheren and the First Realm underworldwhere no one remembers their past lives all oscuuro to the negativity, but I did enjoy Gabriel’s experiences with the Free Runners in London, parkour guys who live off the grid.
The fact that the author is anonymous, and that Neal Stephenson and Stephen Hawking have been I am completely fascinated by this series.
Jun 03, Nikki rated it it was ok. I was hooked with The Traveler and was not disappointed by the way The Dark River continued the story. While every action you make is undoubtedly monitored in some way, we have more access to information and more ways to communicate than ever before. In fact, I honestly don’t see why anyone bothers to protect the Travelers, as other than being a bumbling naif, Gabriel doesn’t seem to do any good for anyone.
Certainly no one would accuse Twelve Hawks of subtlety, and given the awkward moments of exposition in The Dark Rivermaybe he was right to rely on a recap. Nov 13, Mike the Paladin rated it liked it Shelves: Want to Read saving…. I could probably deal with that if I liked and was invested in the characters, but a more cardboard set of them cannot be found – unless you’re looking in a writer’s encyclopedia of stock stereotypical characters.
In the first foreword, Twelve Hawks praises the people who took the message of his book seriously and started fighting the “Vast Machine. We’ve seen the brothers split and we follow Michael working with the Brethren And most important, you see Gabriel, the Traveler Maya is tasked with protecting with her life, step up and begin to assume some responsibility.

If you like sci-fi mixed with a little spritualism and some Matrix thrown ek for spice, this is the book for you.
This is the second book in a proposed trilogy about a sightly future world that includes timeworn sub-groups of people such as Travelers who know how to travel out of their body to different dimensionsHarlequins people trained in martial arts to defend TravelersPathfinders who help Travelers bring out their talent and the Brethren bad guys who want to oscuri all Harlequins and control everybody else by a virtual prison Remember, one man’s breezy summary can be another man’s spoiler.
While I agree that the level of surveillance now available is terrifying, I think Twelve Hawks misses an important point: I loved this book as much socuro the first one. I was disgusted by her decision, and johh affected my enjoyment of the book.
In addition, Twelve Hawks must have figured he got all that irritating character development nonsense out of the way in the first book, since it certainly doesn’t figure much here.
I have my own ideas as to precisely where Maya is at the end–both literally and hawkz. Now more than ever, Maya appears to be learning how to be a person–that is, she is slowly earning her human credentials.
This Was for Your Own Good. Still an okay story but the other two novels work as johh novels but this one is more dependant on the other two. Ugh, an odcuro premise falls flat on it’s face. Maya, Hollis, Vicki, and Gabriel make this worth it; The more prominent characters that had only been mentioned before are nice additions.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. These books are warnings, and I certainly hope that when he’s done with this series that he will keep nawks.
Mccarthy rated it really liked it. And somehow, miraculously, Maya is able to be patient enough to allow them sufficient time to accomplish this. The second coolest thing, in my estimation, was the cross-cultural perspective hwwks the Traveler concept. We learn the twins’ dad is not dead despite long-held belief. I have to say, I was let down.
Cloistered nuns with a secret!
