Welcome to my tour stop for Traveler by Dennis W. Green! Traveler is an adult science fiction novel. The tour runs July 6 – July 17 with reviews, interviews, guest posts and excerpts. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.
Blending mystery, police procedural and sci-fi, Traveler is a thriller in the tradition of Daniel Suarez and Dean Koontz, with just a dash of Jim Butcher.
Police detective Trav Becker can travel between parallel realities. So can other versions of him. And one is systematically killing every Trav he can find.
Trav must fight to keep the very fabric of time itself from unwinding as he hunts the most dangerous quarry of all… himself.
He must hunt the most dangerous quarry of all… himself.
4 of 5 Stars
I’ve always been drawn to books with any kind of dimensional travel be it time, parallel universe, or ‘space’. Initially getting to know the characters was a bit confusing and I was a touch skeptical. Trav wasn’t a super likable guy which was understandable and made me want to get to know him but also kind of want to shake him! This changed as I became even more immersed in the plot and began to see his personality through all of his angst. I absolutely loved the action and mystery of figuring out what was going on right along with Trav. I was completely engaged and then a lot of things started to come together. I couldn’t put it down and even put off dinner to finish. My favorite parts of the whole book are the twist I didn’t see coming, and the end. I can’t say much about the twist because ‘spoilers’ but I absolutely loved it because of the fact it was really a surprise for me. The ending was also amazing. There is another book which I’m eager to read to continue on this adventure with Trav but this book has a very nice ‘wrap up’. I really appreciate having closure at the end of a book. If you like mystery with some bonus sci-fi I highly picking this up.
