The Traveler is a person who can travel to another realm, learning from these others worlds, he or she returns with a heightened knowledge that they can pass onto others.

They have existed for millennia; many famous people in history are believed to have been Travelers, including Jesus Christ. 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. Except in the modern age the true power of the Traveler has been realized by the Tabula and they wish to capture Travelers and use them for their own gain.

Finally there are the Harlequins, a secret group who have existed just as long, whose sworn duty is to protect the Travelers. Gabriel and his brother Michael are Travelers. In the first book of the series, Michael was captured by the Tabula and has now become one of them, an enemy to Gabriel. So as the Tabula are both working on the Virtual Panopticon and looking for the Traveler, Gabriel discovers that his father — a renowned Traveler — is alive and goes to England to search for him. It is now up to Gabriel to travel to this other realm, the First Realm — better known as Hell — to find his father and bring him back.

At the same time they most not forget about the Tabula who are desperately looking for them, using every means necessary. The Dark River furthers the plot along, but falls short of offering up any shocking realizations or reveals, feeling more like a chapter in the great saga of the Fourth Realm series. It ends on a cliffhanger leaving the reader wondering how the enigmatic John Twelve Hawks which is obviously a pseudonym will complete the epic and growing series with just one more book to go.

This was most acute when the story suddenly turned into The Da Vinci Code. John Twelve Hawks To him, technology by itself is an evil. While I agree that the level of surveillance now available is terrifying, I think Twelve Hawks misses an important point: If you look at the scariest moments in history, it is when people's access to information has been controlled. 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.

Ugh, an interesting premise falls flat on it's face. Only a mystic who can cross over to the 'light' and bring back spiri Ugh, an interesting premise falls flat on it's face. Only a mystic who can cross over to the 'light' and bring back spiritually enlightening messages, like Jesus, Buddha, et al, have, can somehow save us all from world thought domination.

I really disliked the author's ham-fisted approach to shoving this creed down the reader's throat - at every turn he is reiterating some point from it - over and over and over and over. 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.

Between that and the derivative plot points, ugh. Overall, I'd recommend you not waste your time. May 13, Topher rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am completely fascinated by this series. It has such a dark paranoid feel to it I'd say the series is well worth reading, if only because anything that talks about ubiquitous monitoring of our lives ie, police cameras in Baltimore and London, ATM cameras, store cameras as well as parkour deserves to be read by more people. The fact that the author is anonymous, and that Neal Stephenson and Stephen Hawking have been I am completely fascinated by this series.

The fact that the author is anonymous, and that Neal Stephenson and Stephen Hawking have been proposed as legitimate possibilities just ices the cake. Mar 12, Julie H. So, book 2 of the Fourth Realm Trilogy was pretty interesting. A good deal more disconcerting given the story's basis in rebel forces trying to combat the Brethren, a Ludlumesque global conspiracy in support of controlling the populace through a culture of fear, never-ending data mining, and access to way too much information about citizens' lives--much of it made available by the citizens themselves.

Yes, thank you, I do see the irony in posting this review on line given the message of the boo So, book 2 of the Fourth Realm Trilogy was pretty interesting.

Yes, thank you, I do see the irony in posting this review on line given the message of the book and the last sentence I wrote. Of course, John Twelve Hawks doesn't appear to be preaching some freaked out, simplistic "All technology is bad" sort of message. I read his work as cautioning us--much like the Free Runners and Harlequins esp. Mother Blessing who are so adept at avoiding the insane number of cameras been to London lately?

Now more than ever, Maya appears to be learning how to be a person--that is, she is slowly earning her human credentials. You see her gradually learn that friendship and love are not bad things that will get her killed.

You also learn a bit more about her father, Thorn, who was pretty one-dimensional in the previous book. And most important, you see Gabriel, the Traveler Maya is tasked with protecting with her life, step up and begin to assume some responsibility. The second coolest thing, in my estimation, was the cross-cultural perspective on the Traveler concept. That is, all cultures have stories of prophets who have gained access to otherwise inaccessible information and used it for the good of society.

Best of all is when 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. The Dark River. Customers Also Bought Items By. See a Problem? And somehow, miraculously, Maya is able to be patient enough to allow them sufficient time to accomplish this.

On the downside, and the reason that the book earned only four of the possible five stars available here, is the fact that The Dark River terminates vs.

By "terminate," I am talking grinding halt--as in drop-the-transmission-in-the-middle-of-the-highway. While mindful that this is the second book in a trilogy, so by definition can hardly conclude the several story arcs set in motion by the author, it nearly stops mid-sentence. I have my own ideas as to precisely where Maya is at the end--both literally and metaphorically.

It will take the eagerly-awaited publication of the third book to see if I might be right. Fortunately, given the clever writing, imagery, and many layers on which the six realms exist, I find great comfort in knowing that I will never really "know" for sure.

But I will definitely enjoy the third book and seeing what John Twelve Hawks does with the characters, organizations, and what sorts of hope this series offers to our own world. And yes, I do interpret his persepective as a hopeful one. These books are warnings, and I certainly hope that when he's done with this series that he will keep writing.

Loving Without Fear. Autonomia e salute sul lavoro Italian Edition.

The Moon Temple. I enjoyed The Traveler, despite its cliches, but with The Dark River, I sometimes found myself embarrassed to be reading it. This was most acute when the story suddenly turned into The Da Vinci Code. Look, I'm not above reading fluff, obviously, but I do draw the line in some places, which is why I've never read The Da Vinci Code or Twilight, so I felt kind of betrayed when my fluff turned into "that other" fluff out of the blue. Vicki went out like a bitch.

She was a good c I enjoyed The Traveler, despite its cliches, but with The Dark River, I sometimes found myself embarrassed to be reading it.

Dark river

She was a good character, a strong character, and her death deserved to at least have some meaning like if her sacrifice had saved Matthew, or something , but no, it was as if her life were worthless. This happened with Lawrence in the last book, so it shouldn't surprise me, but it was still disappointing.

What was intriguingly prescient in the last book now seemed preachy, with regard to the dangers of trading freedom for safety. Similarly, I felt like I was being given little lessons from time to time, with no apparent point. Like that women don't have it too bad in Ethiopia or that cappuccino shouldn't be ordered after 10am.

I like to learn things in novels, but it should come as part of the overall story, not as some preachy little side note. Still, at this point, I'll read the last one just to see how it ends.

I expect to be embarrassed. Thankfully, on the Kindle, no one will have to know my little secret. Nov 13, Mike the Paladin rated it liked it Shelves: This is not your run of the mill story Conspiracies everywhere and Hindu worlds of the dead to boot.

This one picks up not long after The Traveler It's a good to fair read. That segment takes more center stage here. We are getting more of the author's view of the "Realms" as we start to learn about how the Travelers can access the gates and move from one realm to another and the possibility of getting trapped. We've seen the brothers split and we follow Michael working with the Brethren A pretty good book, not as good or interesting as the first a bit weaker, but readable.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Are You an Author? To view it, click here. I really didn't think it could be worse than the first one, but sheesh, was I wrong. Absolutely NOTHING happens in this book--sure, a few characters die, but the plot of this "trilogy" is not moved forward at all, the backstory which it could use is not developed, and random shit is thrown together just because it seemed like the author thought it was cool. Cloistered nuns with a secret!

And, the Holy Grail of MacGuffins, we literally have the Ark of the Covenant I really didn't think it could be worse than the first one, but sheesh, was I wrong. Twelve Hawks' writing is lazy, full of lame metaphors and flat characters, with such a contrived plot, that he doesn't even seem to bother to try to explain it or make it worth a reader's time to invest.

I thought these books would be, at worst, lite escapism trash, but it truly is terrible, like some half-baked sci-fi premise that you'd see on NBC and later cancelled after half a season.Best occult books. It is now up to Gabriel to travel to this other realm, the First Realm — better known as Hell — to find his father and bring him back. Un fantasy ben scritto, e soprattutto abbastanza credibile.

While hiding out in New York, Gabriel gets wind that his father Matthew is at a convent in London so he goes there himself, with Maya and Victory following soon after and Hollis later he stays to make the Brethren think Gabriel is still in NY. However, it was even better than the first book.
