Gould's original timeline is continued here. Jumper was a meticulous voyage of discovery of a boy who found he could teleport and used it to escape very real perils only to find in himself the courage to face up to responsibilities. The second book, Reflex, took on in similar detail and logic what might happen if the wrong people found out. The third feels like a step backwards, with a rather staid family dynamic and school setting for a new generation. It's clearly written, easy to read, the detail is there again, but the excitement of discovery and tension of the secret are almost lost despite the freer use of locale. That said, I remain a fan of this plot thread for its refusal to over-dramatise, super-heroise or go for the cinematic. Keep it real, Mr Gould, and find a more gripping idea for your next one please!

I loved this book - fast paced, fun ideas. A book about a girl and her parents and their ability to jump and what they have to do to protect themselves from the government.

The book is a mix of coming of age, thriller, high school-drama (which I found very fun to read, even though I'm a "grownup"). It's also written in first person which I like. The only negative part of the book is that the girl is good at everything she tries and after a while that gets tiresome but it certainly does not make it less enjoyable.

Highly enjoyable, good enough characters and very good settings and feeling.

Again, Steven Gould has transported us into the ordinary life of an exceptional person and family - looking at how a family needs to live when they are exceptional and how they react and relate to the rest of the world around them is what is so fascinating about Gould's work. Remembering how Davey was when he first started teleporting and then looking at how he, as a father, reacts to his daughter's jumping is so real that it could just be about wearing the latest fashions!

A must for the true fans of the Jumper BOOK series and Steven's other works.

Cent, short for Millicent, is Davy and Millie’s 16 year old daughter. She has been home-schooled, kept away from the outside world and safe from the sinister forces hunting teleporter Davy, helping her parent with their humanitarian aid projects. This all changes when she learns to Jump, and demands a chance to go to school and meet other kids, to be socialised.

As we might expect, any child of Davy and Millie will be out of the ordinary. Cent is very bright, and really quite amazingly grounded. Her inevitable interaction with the school bullies does not go how the bullies expect. Then Cent discovers there more to the situation than simple bullying, and determines to fix it. But that draws the wrong sort of notice.

This is fun in the usual Gould way of a smart teen coming of age. There are new plotlines opening up and not followed through here, as we see not just Cent’s schooldays, but Davy starting to track down the people who captured him all those years ago. I hope this means there are more books to follow.

It's ridiculous that there are Kindle editions for the first two books and not the third! Please sort this out.

Again, Steven Gould didn't disappoint. It's a perfect sequel of the Jumper saga and also an excellent and contemporary novel adding issues every teenager faces: new school and friends, crushes, and sex, but everything from a clean perspective and not leaving action aside. The characters all well built as well as the plot with a touch of a science lecture. Totally recommended.
