Cocky, yet down-to-earth. Hip, yet grounded. Well-liked, yet lonely. Scared out of his mind, yet known for his exceptional bravery. Thats 15-year-old Bobby Pendragon, the Traveler from Second Earth, who flumes from territory to territory, putting a stop to each of Saint Danes evil plans to throw all Halla into chaos.
If you just said Huh? you had better to back and read my review of The Merchant of Death. It explains everything.
Yes, this is another adventure in a series of what I am guessing may run to 10 books in all, narrated by the youthful voice of Bobby himself as he sends his journals to his devoted friends, Mark and Courtney, back in Stony Brook, Connecticut. In this adventure he isnt far from Stony Brook in fact, he is in Manhattan but because the territories of Halla are separated by time as well as space, the First Earth in which Pendragon finds himself is as far from home as you could wish sixty-years away or more in the year 1937.
World War II is coming, only nobody knows it except Pendragon, his fellow Travelers Spader and Gunny, and of course, Saint Dane. This evil would-be conqueror of all that is or ever was or will be, has hit on a plan to destroy not one, but three territories at one blow. And this time his nastiest weapon against Bobby Pendragon is…Bobby Pendragon.
If you just said Huh? you had better get this book and read it. My lips are sealed.
Yes, mate, youre in for a tum-tigger of a natty-do in this one. Hobey! Did I mention that Spader comes along on this one? He has a pretty tough time, too. But Pendragons job is tougher, because he not only has to fight his worst enemy, his best friend, and his own self at the same time, with the lives of everyone he loves on the line, but he also has to cope with his growing realization that everyone, including the other travelers, is looking to him for leadership!. Is he ready for it? Well, no. And that could just spell doom for everyone on earth….
