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!

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "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.

    "Remarkable second book"
    If you could sum up Reflex in three words, what would they be?

    Great Second Book


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought the characters to life almost as much as Mr. Gould. Each voice matched the voice I gave them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The rescue,built up to throughout the book it did not disappoint.


    Any additional comments?

    Second books are hard to get right, this one not only continues the story but improves it. The characters grew naturally, as well as their abilities.

    "Horrible story telling and structure"

    I could not finish this book as I had to stop at chapter 4 due to the irrelevant overly descriptive nature of the story.
    The story progressed ever so slowly and had way too much details for the most irrelevant "scenes".
    Expect to read/listen to a 10 minute description of a cactus plant or a passing tumble weed that play no role in the book what so ever!
    I think the author should work on "Setting the Stage" in a more constructive and relevant manner to the story line and avoid getting side tracked.

    Side note: the author often uses stereotypical metaphors to get a point across. While I'm ok with that, I find it in bad taste and some will find it flat out offensive.

    Good story made great by the performance. Very engaging read. You really should read the first Jumper to appreciate this one.
