it was amazing

Wow, what a satisfying end to an incredible trilogy.

When I started reading The Traveller, I called John Twelve Hawks' masterpiece Orwell meets The Matrix.

Think of it. A world where your entire virtual life is monitored by a secret corporation bent on controlling personal freedom.

A secret society of mercenaries who protect travellers - people who travel between dimensions.

Add a conflict between two brothers - one good the other evil - and the last of the travellers.

The Golden City sets the stage for a final showdown between Gabriel Corrigan's Resistance and his brother Michael's Evergreen Corporation.

Gabriel and his followers are trying to expose Michael's surveillance projects.

At the core of this trilogy is personal freedom. Would you forgo liberty if it meant you could have more toys? A bigger house, a vacation?

Or would you prefer to live independently, without somebody else pulling the strings?

This series is a complete balance of high drama, and polemic.
