John Twelve Hawks's previous novels about the mystical Travelers and the Brethren, their ruthless enemies, generated an extraordinary following around the world. The" Washington Post" wrote that "The Traveler" "portrays a Big Brother with powers far beyond anything Orwell could imagine . . ." and "Publishers Weekly" hailed the series as "a saga that's part "A Wrinkle in Time," part "The Matrix" and part Kurosawa epic." Internet chat rooms and blogs have overflowed with speculation about the final destiny of the richly imagined characters fighting an epic battle beneath the surface of our modern world.
In "The Golden City," Twelve Hawks delivers the climax to his spellbinding epic. Struggling to protect the legacy of his Traveler father, Gabriel faces troubling new questions and relentless threats. His brother Michael, now firmly allied with the enemy, pursues his ambition to wrest power from Nathan Boone, the calculating leader of the Brethren. And Maya, the Harlequin warrior pledged to protect Gabriel at all costs, is forced to make a choice that will change her life forever.
A riveting blend of high-tech thriller and fast-paced adventure, "The Golden City" will delight Twelve Hawks's many fans and attract a new audience to the entire trilogy.
