Davy has always been alone. He believes that he's the only person in the world who can teleport. But what if he isn't?
A mysterious group of people has taken Davy captive. They don't want to hire him, and they don't have any hope of appealing to him to help them. What they want is to own him. They want to use his abilities for their own purposes, whether Davy agrees to it or not. And so they set about brainwashing him and conditioning him. They have even found a way to keep a teleport captive.
But there's one thing that they don't know. No one knows it, not even Davy. And it might save his life....

"Though Gould continues to exuberantly press the boundaries of scientific credibility, his gift for placing ordinary people in extraordinary situations against a backdrop of international concerns makes this fast-paced adventure sizzle." (Publishers Weekly)
"This is a fun, fast-paced novel that - like Gould's other books - also has a social conscience that gives it more depth than such a story might have in lesser hands." (Charles de Lint, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction)
It is a well written book. The plot is well thought out.
The capture of the jumper and the exploration of the jumping phenomena.
A solid voice and very enjoyable.
I hope Mr Gould writes more in the theory.
I love a good story, regardless of the genre. Anything from 'Pride and Prejudice' to 'The Shining'.
The characters were real. The good guys had moral dilemmas but the bad guys were really bad.
I tired but I listen while I drive so I had to break up the listening time.
Unexpected twists, deep unusual characters I cared about, outstanding performance with an excellent plot. This was definitely not a formula book. No cheesy romance or unbelieveable sci-fi with strange creatures. This was a moment of suspended disbelief in an old concept made real. Enter Star Trek, Captain Kirk brand, without the transporters. Not possible, right? Yet, I'm believing it, not believing it, not caring because the story is so freaking good. Romance, brutality, corrupt governmental agencies, twists, turns, I didn't want it to end. Thanks Steven Gould for a great book and Macleod Andrews for an outstanding performance!!
The narration makes or breaks an audiobook. The narrator for this book brought the charactors to life and made the story pop.
Davy's girlfriend was my favorite charactor. It was fun learning along with her what she could do and how.
Yes. I travel a lot for work each day and the time went by so fast due to this engaging story.
I am truly enjoying the Jumper series. The stories are interesting and the characters smart. I can't wait for the next one!
I'd recommend it to anyone of my friends who enjoys smooth story telling with a fandom for modern science fiction
It's a great read for anyone who is a fan of modern science fiction and psychological references, so I would absolutely suggest it to at least a few of my friends who are fans of the genre.
Very smooth story telling with some very emotionally effective speaking. He also did a very good job at defining each different character with his speech which is always very good.
"A jump into action and adventure."
Say something about myself! Or about yourself! Or something!
I wish that there had been more subterfuge; the idea of working with the NSA, established in Jumper, more or less makes the fun anonymous jumping hijinks disappear.
I couldn't decide what to make of the very deep conspiracy the book unravels (and doesn't); i.e., I don't think it was Trilateral Commission or New World Order stuff...Davy's politics don't seem to align with that but what was it?
I like this one more than the Jumper-the first in the series. It was full of action with interesting characters and unpredictable events. I wasn't expecting it to be so entertaining and I got it only because it was on sale. I'm so glad I did, and I will probably get the next one in the series. For the people who like light sci-fi, this book will hold your attention and leave you satisfied at the end. Reader was very good as well.
The fantasy merged with reality, science and politics is very entertaining. A couple of questions still linger which is a perfect primer for the sequel. I can't wait!
I really loved "Jumper", the first book of the series! This book lacked the impact and fast pace of the first book. The concept was good,but the story dragged. The pace was just too slow.
I like the wit and writing style of the author and the performance by Macleod Andrews.
This book goes beyond PG-13 in language and edginess of sex... a bit unrealistic..
I suggest that you pass on this book or wait on other reviews.
"Great sequel to Jumper"
Ten years have passed and Davy and Millie are married. When Davy is kidnapped Millie learns she can jump and pulls out all the stops to to find him. Davy's experience at the hands of his captors is quite harrowing and frightening and leaves the listener wondering how he can possibly get out of the situation he finds himself in.The bad guys are BAD but believable. The story is well written, exciting and flows well with plenty of action and unexpected twists. I like how the main characters have developed and the people they have become. The ending is good and hopefully paves the way for a continuation of Millie and Davy's story.
