|Arwen Elys Dayton's "Traveler"|
Traveler is the second book in an interesting fantasy trilogy about a group of people who can manipulate time. The first book, Seeker, set the stage for the conflict. This second book continues where it left off. I read it half a year ago (yes, I am just reviewing it now, yes, I need to schedule my life better) and while some of the details are fuzzy as I try now to write the review, most of the story has stayed with me--which is one of my benchmarks for a good book.
Quin Kincaid is a strong heroine, battling her controlling evil father, her controlling revenge-seeking ex-boyfriend, and dealing with her new relationship with Shinobu. There's more history of the Seeker families, as well as information on the Dreads. It's absolutely necessary to read the first book in the series to understand any of what is going on, although there are flashbacks and reminders to events from Seeker. Once again, I found myself drawn to the Young Dread's story and I'm excited to discover that there is a novella all about her! I'm looking forward to reading that as well as the conclusion to the trilogy.
