about this book

Two brothers born into a race of Travelers—prophets able to journey to different realms of consciousness—have just discovered that their long lost father may still be alive. Gabriel, who could be humanity’s savior, and his guardian, Maya, want to protect him. Michael wants to destroy him and with it humanity’s hope for freedom. As they race across the globe, their frantic search puts them on a collision course, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

“A thrilling sequel.... Engaging and relevant.” —Time Out New York

"The stuff that first-rate high-tech paranoid-schizophrenic thrillers are made of." —Time

"Portrays a Big Brother with powers far beyond anything Orwell could imagine. . . . Political prophecy is rarely such fun." —The Washington Post

“Seductive. . . . Quickly hooks you into its Matrix-esque world. . . . [Let] the butt-kicking begin.” USA Today
