The Traveler: A Novel (Fourth Realm Trilogy #01) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In London, Maya, a young woman trained to fight by her powerful father, uses the latest technology to elude detection when walking past the thousands of surveillance cameras that watch the city. In New York, a secret shadow organization uses a victim's own GPS to hunt him down and kill him. In Los Angeles, Gabriel, a motorcycle messenger with a haunted past, takes pains to live off the grid — free of credit cards and government IDs. Welcome to the world of The Traveler — a world frighteningly like our own.

In this compelling novel, Maya fights to save Gabriel, the only man who can stand against the forces that attempt to monitor and control society. From the back streets of Prague to the skyscrapers of Manhattan, The Traveler portrays an epic struggle between tyranny and freedom. Not since 1984 have readers witnessed a Big Brother so terrifying in its implications and in a story that so closely reflects our lives.

Review:

"A fearless, brilliant action heroine (think Uma Thurman in Kill Bill); a secret history of the world; a tale of brother against brother...and nonstop action as the forces of good and evil battle it out....Readers won't regret taking this wild ride." The Times-Picayune

Review:

"Page-turningly swift....John Twelve Hawks has drawn upon both pop-cultural and literary touchstones and modified them to create a cyber-1984." The New York Times

Review:

"Constant action....A must-read....Will have you scratching your head wondering what is real....We may well be seeing John Twelve Hawks on the best-seller lists for years." Detroit Free Press

Review:

"Fast-moving....Believable....The Vast Machines seems [close] to the mark." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"The Traveler is an easy-reading, sun-chair munchie. And if you catch it now, you'll be ahead of the game when the sequel appears and the movie comes out." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Review:

"One part The Matrix and one part The Celestine Prophecy, with a faint whiff of Dune lurking in the background, this book succeeds both as a fast- paced action story and as a novel of ideas (albeit nothing too weighty). It may not have the originality of Da Vinci, but it radiates a narrative power all its own." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"What is remarkable about The Traveler is how well Mr. Twelve Hawks has transmuted this sociopolitical piffle into a highly effective thriller....No cheap thrills here. The sense of menace is pervasive throughout, and the characters are all well-drawn." Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"The Traveler is without doubt a most readable mix of science fiction and political jeremiad....It recalls earlier tales, such as the Star Wars movies and George Orwell's 1984, that portray a few brave individuals challenging an evil empire..." Patrick Anderson, The Washington Post Book World
