The Traveller

Author: John Twelve Hawks
Paperback: 464 pages

The Traveler is powerful, mainstream fiction (made for motion picture) built on a foundation of cutting-edge technology and the fantasy. It has everything: free will and determinism, good versus evil, social and political reality, the New Testament to string theory, reality and fantasy. You can find Star Wars, Kill Bill, Matrix all in one book but still while reading it you will feel that it's original.

The Traveler is the story of Gabriel and Maya, his protector. The time is roughly the present, and the world is overseen by the Tabula, a secret organization which believes on establishing a perfectly controlled populace (thanks to 1984 By George Orwell). The Tabula is fighting against the Travelers and their sword-carrying protectors, the Harlequins. From centuries, Travelers used their power to project their spirits into other worlds for wisdom to challenge the system established by Tabula. Their war is now in the last phase where Tabula has established the dominance and the Travelers are now almost extinct. Tabula has almost killed all the Travelers and most of the Harlequins. Maya, a reluctant Harlequin (The Bride from Kill Bill + Lara Croft), is given task to protect two naive Travelers, Michael and Gabriel Corrigan. Gabriel (Neo from Matrix) prefers to live 'off the Grid', eschewing any documentation that the Vast Machine (run by Tabula) could use to track him.

Meanwhile Tabula has changed their plan and now they want to use the power of Traveler for their own purpose. They appoint Nathan Boon, a disciplined mercenary to capture the brothers. If this all sounds a little crazy or already heard and seen, don't panic. The author is gifted story-teller and he makes vaguely supernatural good-versus-evil story entirely believable and original without clogging his narrative anywhere.

At lightning speed, Author takes us on the ride from the back alleys of Prague to the underworld of Los Angeles to a guarded research facility in New York.

The impact of the traveler is so powerful that you will start reading this book 'Off the Grid' after few pages.
