New York Times best-selling authors Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves deliver a thrilling sequel to the science fiction novel InterWorld, full of riveting interdimensional battles and alternate realities.
After mastering the ability to walk between dimensions, Joey Harker and his fellow InterWorld freedom fighters are now on a mission to maintain peace between the rival powers of magic and science who seek to control all worlds.
When a stranger named Acacia somehow follows Joey back to InterWorld's base, things get complicated. No one knows who she is or where she's from - or how she knows so much about InterWorld.
Dangerous times lie ahead for Joey and the mission. There's a traitor hidden among them, and if Joey has any hope of saving InterWorld, the multiverse, and the mission, he's going to have to rely on his wits - and, just possibly, on the mysterious Acacia Jones.
With a story conceived by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves and written by Michael and Mallory Reaves, this mind-bending follow-up to the exciting science fiction novel InterWorld is a compelling fantasy adventure through time and space, in which the future depends on a young man who is more powerful than he realizes.

The voice acting was subpar for most of the book. The reader went overboard trying to portray an aloof teenage boy. The first book had a much better performance.
I really loved the first interworld book. I did not feel the same way about this one.
The largest and most glaring issue is the switch of narrator, the voice actor from the first book really contributed to the character of Joey Harker, while this one had a dumb macho voice I might expect to be narrating an over-the-top zombie novel.
There was also a pretty significant shift in what the two books were like as well, the first book was full of interesting world building, and this one was much less interesting. Also, the first book had some really hefty emotional bits with him and his family, this one not so much.
Also, the world of this book feels like it breaks with the spirit of the first one.
The Silver Dream was another book that I couldn't put down. A quick but good read. Definitely leaves you wanting more. You want be disappointed.
Graphic designer and University professor. I love comics and to be always learning something new!
a little less surprising than book one but still a good entertainment!!!! great characters.. If you like space, time and parallel worlds, this is your book!
