Publisher's Summary

What if every choice you ever made had the power to reshape reality?

Joni, the daughter of World Walker Seb Varden, has never met her father. And the world he left behind has become a dangerous place for the last generation of Manna users. Mee and John insist Seb will return, but what if they're wrong?

Could it be possible she has none of Seb Varden's powers? Or might her abilities reveal themselves as she leaves childhood behind? In her 17th year, Joni will be forced to leave those she loves, face a great evil, and finally learn the truth about her father.

    "A new beginning to an incredible story."

    I enjoy this except of The World Walker. While this story is about Seb's daughter, Joni, it is still a thrilling ride that answers many questions and sets the stage for the next book. In this book Joni grows up becoming her own person supported by her mother, Mei and Uncle John; Sym is even there towards the end. I can't wait to hear about what comes next but I don't want to spoil anything for others so I will just say: I highly recommend this book and enjoyed the story contained within. It is a satisfying tale that keeps you engaged throughout and left wanting more!!

    Blind listener reading everything, especially mystery/thrillers and sf&f. Restricted to audio so picky where credits spent. #BooksRule

    "Man, that was some tasty storytelling"

    Imo this is the best of the bunch... A tight, well paced, and intriguing sf/fantasy, coming of age type, thriller... The writing is impressive... Delightfully intricate plotting, and replotting, w/o confusing the storyline... The reset drives action, and emphasizes consequences... Little bit of ssocial commentary of a topical nature, lightly and perceptively done... Excellent characters and relationships... Great bad guy, and loved the way AI is proposed, and what that makes Sim... I was engrossed thoroughly, and awed by the storytelling skill displayed... Couldn't put it down...

    "Disappointing"

    I was really looking forward to this book, but I found it painful for at least the first half, and I was totally underwhelmed about the end. It's almost as if the author felt forced to throw something together and couldn't quite make it as interesting and well-developed as the previous books. It also went to the next level in some gory scenes that were a little bit much. (Sorry, I know a lot of work goes into writing a book and continuing a story :( )

    It may be worth noting, I always thought Mia was an irritating character. If you liked her, then you may like this better than I did.
