Publisher's Summary

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....

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Entertaining"

    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.

    "Very Entertaining!"

    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!

    "Good Sequel"

    I like it...a good Sequel...Long in the middle....opens up a possibilty...Some of the actions of Davey was more controlled than most people would do.

    "Not as good as first book of the series"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Jumper was just the beginning, now it gets good!"

    I liked Jumper, but I loved Reflex! Parts of it seemed a little dry or hard to follow, but overall I thought this was a fantastic sequel and it often had me nervous and on the edge of my seat. I especially liked the "science" of it in the experiments done to figure out how the ability works.

    "Gripping from the first page"

    Loved this book couldn't have been happier with the plot and pace.

    Are the ethnic accents appropriate in audio books? This was my first one.

    "Great sequel!"

    Loved the 2nd book too :-)
    Surprised how different a story it is compared to the movie.
    But listening was gripping, and a "page turner"
    (Ok, I said it !!!)
    Let's start #3 :-)

    "great story, held my interest"

    This was a very enjoyable listen. I was always held the story and what would unfold next. Characters and scenes well developed, and very easy to create the story's images in my mind. I always looked forward to starting the story up where I left off last. The narrator did a fantastic job. Overall, it was a great listen!
