Publisher's Summary

The fourth book in the best-selling The World Walker series.

Does absolute power corrupt absolutely?

Maybe Seb Varden is in a good position to find out. Depending on your point of view, he has either spent a few days, six months, or 17 years playing a potentially deadly game.

At stake: the freedom of the alien who saved his life, the future of all intelligent species in the universe, and his sanity.

Not only does Seb not fully understand the rules, but it's just possible the game itself is rigged.

So, business as usual then.

Excellent series...

Wonderful series. Extremely enjoyable. I look forward to reading more books by the author. Narration and narrator was well done also. I will also look for more audible books narrated by Todd Boyce.

satisfying end to an enjoyable series

The narration was markedly improved this time around, with none of the odd pronunciation that plagued the other books in the series.

The ending was creative as well, I won't spoil for you but if you've ever read a sci-fi book you can probably predict it yourself, there's really only one way for it to end.

If you've read the other books, invest the credit. Its worth it.

An awesome finish to an amazing series.

Although it's the final book in the series, but Mr IWS left alot of open ended plot for more. Love it and wanting more, I miss all the characters already.

Very good

Alas it ends. Brilliant performance from the narrator. it left very many unanswered questions but it was ok.

Highly disappointed

What disappointed you about The Unnamed Way?

This was ninety percent a boring tangent from the true storyline bookended with something attempting to make it part of the series.

Any additional comments?

If Sainsbury wanted to write a complexly different book, he should have.

Great Finish to the Series

Ian seriously needs to just keep writing. We finally get to find out what happened to Seb while he was gone for 17 years. It's quiet exciting and hard to stop listening. The ending did lack some excitement, but it ended well enough that I wanted to cry when I heard,"The End" . It's over, but what romantic way to end Seb's, Me, & Joanie's story. I'm hoping there'll be spin offs. Looking forward to seeing Ian next book, World Walker related or not.

Great story! The narrator is pretty solid, but...

Awesome conclusion to the books!

The narrator is great, as usual, but, be warned that he has a bit of a sibilant fricative, which can be harsh at times, until you get used to it (only a few chapters, tops)

Now, That’s How You End a Story!!

Fabulous conclusion, and I believe thes last two have been the best in the series... Some serious writing chops on display... The way the time and dimensional traveling sequences are handled adds serious flavor w/o confusing... Especially liked the whole chapter and unchapter thing;). Clay’s world, and Seb’s sojourn in same,couldn’t have been done better, and were universally engrossing;). We also get a lot more explanation of the WorldWalkers, their roles, and the expanding multiverse... Joanie’s particular skill, and its uniqueness add some delightfully twisty layers to the whole thing... Superb pacing, characters, and philosophical ponderings... Mind bending is the concept/question of which are “actual” worlds... Some of them? None of them? All of them? Who can say, all depends on the perspective;). Multiple resolutions and conclusions, and all are wonderfully done, and a handful are downright touching and thought provoking... Read This Series!!! 100% worth it, and sincerely hope to see some side/related stories in the future... This universe has way too much to offer;)

World walker series

I thoroughly enjoyed all four books in the series. The characters were fleshed out beautifully and the plot was consistently played out throughout the series. I can't wait now for the hinted at follow up book(s).

Not sure about this one yet

i’m at chapter 13, and so far don’t like this book at all. The previous books were thoroughly enjoyable, but this one is like a religious tolerance diatribe, and that’s not what I thought I was purchasing. If it doesn’t improve soon, I will be looking for a refund.
