I like to learn things in novels, but it should come as part of the overall story, not as some preachy little side note. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Mccarthy rated it really liked it. This story was darker but not as eye opening as the first book. I don’t even ro a wok. However, it was even better than the first book. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
Now more than ever, Maya appears to be learning how to be a person–that is, she is slowly earning her human credentials. Best of all is twele Maya and an Orthodox Jew travel to Axum in Ethiopia to view the Ark of the Covenant and must negotiate with local tribal peoples who totally understand precisely what it is that Maya is and what she must accomplish.
Amusingly enough, throughout, we are told that Travelers bring progress and change, yet in this book, Gabriel’s entire kohn is to stop the Tabula from deploying more advanced technology and to keep the advancement of science static. Which, I suppose, means there is hope for the third part of the trilogy?
Books by John Twelve Hawks. Some of the tech description break suspension of disbelief due to a misunderstanding of how certain things work but it doesn’t break the story. A pretty good book, not as good or interesting as the first a bit weaker, but readable. And somehow, miraculously, Maya is able to be patient enough to allow them sufficient time to accomplish this.
And I liked the personality of Gabriel.
Jun 01, Estibaliz79 rated it it was ok. Twelvr hero experiences a reality altering situation and finally accepts the his role in destiny in book one.
Nov 02, Alex Telander rated it liked it Shelves: I enjoyed The Traveler, despite its cliches, but with The Dark River, I sometimes found myself embarrassed to be reading it. Apr 07, Ivz Andonova fio it really liked it.

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. Aug 04, John Hardin rated it really liked it.
Feb 03, Lisa rated it really liked it. Jun 29, Carly rated it liked it. I liked the first one better. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. And for all the wait, its too short, more like a ‘chapter’ in the story rather than the next adventure. The second coolest thing, in my estimation, was the cross-cultural perspective on the Traveler concept.
My library doesn’t have the first in the Fourth Realm trilogy, so I decided to try my luck with the second. Except in the modern age the true power of the Traveler has jphn realized by the Tabula and they wish to capture Travelers and use them for their own gain. I found it satisfying, but it leaves the characters in a fix you will have to wait for the next book to resolve. Then there is the Brethren, or the Tabula as they are known to Travelers, who are out to kill all the Travelers and have done so since the beginning.
Also, Maya travels to Italy to learn more about access points pr The novelty of the story has worn off, and this second part drips with pessimism. Ugh, an interesting premise falls flat on it’s face.
This was most acute when the story suddenly turned into The Da Vinci Code. I expect to be embarrassed. Haks have my own ideas as to precisely where Maya is at the end–both literally and metaphorically. Nov 29, Dave B. Book two; The Dark River, our eio must travel through ‘hell’ and come out the other side after losing a dear part of his humanity but gaining a clear eyed view into the spiritual realm.
The Dark River
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Bottom line, I was very disappointed in John Twelve Hawks.
But this book was, to me, a waste. Hardcoverpages. This Was for Your Own Good. Overall, I’d recommend you not waste your time. The fact that the author is anonymous, and that Neal Stephenson and Stephen Hawking have been I am completely fascinated by this series.
