This is not your run of the mill story... Conspiracies everywhere and Hindu worlds of the dead to boot.

This one picks up not long after The Traveler...and builds on the Maya & Gabriel relationship as it sweeps around the world, seeks to tie any and every religious event, icon or idea into a sort of over all Buddhist cosmology. It's a good to fair read. i didn't get drawn in as thoroughly as I was in Traveler but than I stated about that book that I found the semi-religious part of the book a weakness. That segment takes more center stage here.

We are getting more of the author's view of the "Realms" as we start to learn about how the Travelers can access the gates and move from one realm to another (and the possibility of getting trapped). We've seen the brothers split and we follow Michael working with the Brethren... and of course it's all dark, secret, sinister and...conspiratorial.

A pretty good book, not as good or interesting as the first a bit weaker, but readable.
