andlt;Bandgt;Breaking the rulesandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Just when fifteen-year-old Bobby Pendragon thinks he understands his purpose as a Traveler — to protect the territories of Halla from the evil Saint Dane — he is faced with an impossible choice. The inhabitants of Eelong are in danger of being wiped out by a mysterious plague. The only way Bobby can stop it is to bring the antidote from another territory. Since moving items between territories is forbidden by the Traveler rules, if Bobby chooses to save Eelong he could endanger himself, his friends, and the future of every other being in Halla.

I continue to be heartened by the overall improvements in this series over time. The plotting and characterization, while still not terrifically complex, have increasing internal consistency. In the present volume, Saint Dane's cleverness is more evident; the characters face wheels-within-wheels situations in which it is very difficult to know how to act with certainty and rectitude. Mark and Courtney play a much larger role, with larger consequences. Finishing this fifth book was the first time I was enthusiastic about picking up the next one. I hope that MacHale sustains this jump start and continues to improve through the remaining five books.
