Jun 01, Estibaliz79 rated it it was ok. The first one is the best in the series, IMO. In fact, I found myself frequently annoyed as the author kept stopping to explain things that had happened in the first book. Aug 02, Starshine rated it liked it Recommends it for: An act of pure selfishness on her part, with no justification whatsoever, leaves many people vulnerable and exposed, with the inevitable result of the unnecessary death of a vital character.
It has such a dark paranoid feel to it While I agree that the level of surveillance now available is terrifying, I think Twelve Hawks misses an important point: Overall, The Dark River is eel entertaining enough book, but it sinks under Twelve Hawk’s unsubtle attempts to transform it into something more meaningful.
This one picks up not long after The Traveler I tio completely fascinated by this series.
Jun 13, Fred rated it really liked it. This story was darker but not as eye opening as the first book. The Dark River introduces Gabriel’s father pulls everyone to a nexus centered at the first realm also known as hell. Apr 07, Roxanne rated it liked it. Also, Maya travels to Italy to learn more about access points previously thought available to only Travelers.
Read “The Traveler” first, it’s an amazing book. I could probably deal with that if I liked and was invested in the characters, but a more cardboard set of them cannot be ri – unless you’re looking in a writer’s encyclopedia of stock stereotypical characters.
And for all the wait, its too short, more like a ‘chapter’ in the story rather than the next adventure.
Thanks for telling us about the twelvw. I can only assume that book three takes our hero to the heights of profit or deliverer as he gains a victory over the opposing evil our own greed.
Oct 07, J rated it it was ok Shelves: The landscape has shifted: This is the sequal to the Traveler. My first encounter with Twelve Hawks was through Sparkwhich I found pretty darned awesome, enough so that I decided to try another of his works.
A lo mejor es que el tiempo no perdona Not as good as The Time Traveller but I wouldn’t have missed it. Why do I find myself compelled to read the third volume of this hawls

Nov 13, Mike the Paladin wl it liked it Shelves: And somehow, miraculously, Maya is able to be patient enough to allow them sufficient time to accomplish this. Book two; The Dark River, our hero must travel through ‘hell’ and come out the other side after losing a dear part of his humanity but gaining a clear eyed view i Finally finished the second installment of the trilogy by Twelve Hawks.
Other plot developments occur: 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. The Dark River continues the story of this dystopia in our near future as the Traveler fights for survival while the Tabula fights for domination. 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.
But I will definitely enjoy hohn third book and seeing what John Twelve Hawks does with the characters, organizations, and what sorts of hope this series offers to our iscuro world.
A Traveler who was believed to be dead for nearly twenty years, Gabriel hears, may still be alive and trapped somewhere across the globe.
Los Seis Dominios prometen dar mucho juego.
We’ve seen the brothers split and we follow Michael working with the Brethren But it pretty much left me cold. I came into this with oxcuro will from reading the first installment.
Open Preview See a Problem? 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. Maya, Hollis, Vicki, and Gabriel make this worth it; The more promin review of audio book.

: John Twelve Hawks: Books
Really enjoyed this book. This is the second book in a proposed trilogy about a sightly future world that includes timeworn sub-groups of people such as Travelers who know how to travel out of their body to different dimensionsHarlequins people trained in martial arts to defend TravelersPathfinders who help Travelers bring out their talent and the Brethren bad guys who want to eliminate all Harlequins and control everybody else by a virtual prison system which is never quite elaborated.
In fact, I honestly don’t see why anyone bothers to protect osciro Travelers, as other than owcuro a bumbling naif, Gabriel doesn’t seem to do any good for anyone. What is ahwks guilty-pleasure read when it is not pleasurable?
The author has presented an interesting world view and created a fascinating world in which his characters play out their drama. Read “The Dark River” only to find out what happens next – don’t expect the same caliber of gio. Books by John Twelve Hawks. Between that and the derivative plot points, ugh.
