Steven Gould returns to the world of his classic novel "Jumper" in the thrilling sequel "Impulse."

Cent has a secret. She lives in isolation, with her parents, hiding from the people who took her father captive and tortured him to gain control over his ability to teleport, and from the government agencies who want to use his talent. Cent has seen the world, but only from the safety of her parents' arms. She's teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but she's never been able to do it herself. Her life has never been in danger.

Until the day when she went snowboarding without permission and triggered an avalanche. When the snow and ice thundered down on her, she suddenly found herself in her own bedroom. That was the first time.

Praise For Impulse

Jumper [is] one of those rare books that can be read as a YA or a book for adults; like Ender's Game or vintage Heinlein.”—Cory Doctorow

Reflex is a fun, fast-paced novel… You don’t need to have read Jumper to enjoy the new novel, but all three of the books mentioned here are highly recommended.”—Charles de Lint,  The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
