He's homeless. He's on the run. And he wants revenge.
Marcus Battle has left behind his home.
Now he's on a seemingly impossible mission to find a missing child. But can he balance that responsibility with his deep, primal desire to exact revenge on the men who destroyed his solitary existence?
The world he discovers on his journey isn't the one he remembers before a pneumonic plague called The Scourge killed two-thirds of the world's population. It is lawless, depraved, and far deadlier than the disease which created it.
Battle made a promise to find that child. It's a promise he regrets more acutely with every step of the journey where he is as much the hunter as he is the hunted.

"The post apocalyptic/dystopian series continues"
This book will make no sense at all unless Home, the first novel in the series, is read first. The Traveler is a 3 novel series. The first two novels in the series end in cliffhanger situations.
This is an interesting series set mostly in 2037 after a 2032 disease epidemic kills over two-thirds of humans. The southwestern US is under control of a military-like criminal group called the Cartel. Expect lots of action and suspense. Most of the action occurs in Texas. The protagonist is is ex-US Army officer Marcus Battle who routinely does the seemingly very unlikely.
"Battle is at it again!"
Marcus Battle is back at it again. Picking up where Home left off, Battle is thrown into worse and worse situations as he is forced to face the ever-changing post-Scourge world.
The narration was done by Kevin Pierce, who also narrated the first book. I’ve mentioned every time that I listen to a book narrated by Pierce that he has the perfect “prepper” type voice, and I felt that way again. But, his voice is synonymous with Battle in my eyes. They are the same person.
I really enjoyed Home, the first book in this series. Once I realized that there was more to the story, I couldn’t wait to dive into Canyon. I was not disappointed. Canyon starts off right where Home left off and doesn’t take its foot off the gas the entire story.
Battle is thrown into unbelievable circumstances over and over again and it seems like he can almost get through anything. And as the reader, you are taken along for the ride, thrown into scarier and scarier situations along with Battle and his small group of new friends.
I really enjoyed Home, but Canyon’s jumping back and forth between present and the past to give a much better background on Battle makes this book even better.
I’m not one for spoilers, and I won’t spoil anything by hinting, but the ending of this book was crazy. I had some sneaking suspicions throughout, but I was glad to have them confirmed at the end.
I will be eagerly awaiting the third book in this series to figure out what happens to Battle, and how he will defend his home, his friends, and his newly acquired accomplices.
I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
"Keeps getting better!!"
Non stop action. Keeps getting better. Love the mixture of prepper, war tactics, and personal relationships. Kevin Pierce again doing an amazing job. Cant wait for the next book. If they continue this way, this series will be as famous as A. American Survival series.
loved the book, narrator was top notch. waiting patiently for next book to be available.
"Another great story"
No, even though I really enjoyed the book I rarely re-listen to books.
The characters were believable and Kevin Pierce keeps me glued onto the earbuds.
He just has a great narration.
I did after the first one, well worth it!
"MARCUS BATTLE ROCKS!"
The whole series is Fantastic! i have now listened to all three books twice each! I'm just sad that it's over and would love to read a 4th book one day.
Good clean entertainment, no vulgar language. Hats off to the writer Tom Abraham's, keep up the good work.
"Got to love a 1 man wrecking ball"
Yes, I would recommend this book. The 3 book series is a good listen, I enjoyed the books and am taking the time to write a review.
Its your typical dystopian book, I would say it compares to a under a tell tale sky more then most other books.
Can't say it enough Kevin Pierce is my favorite narrator wish I would have found him sooner
I liked the connection between battle and roof.
"Powerful continuation of Traveler series"
The Road by Cormac McCarthy, not only because it's dystopian and because it's about a man who has to make difficult and selfless decisions to save those he cares about, but also because of the western influences which are so common in McCarthy's work, and now Abrahams.
He has a flair for voices that fit a western genre.
Yes, but I don't want to reveal it to those who haven't listened to it yet.
I've never had eight hours fly by so quickly as I did when listening to Canyon. I look forward to reading and/or listening to Wall.
This was an enjoyable story. Good action and an interesting protagonist. I'd like to see the other characters fleshed out a little more but that will hopefully happen in subsequent books. I would recommend it to like minded friends. My only complaint is that at 7 hours I felt it was too short for its cost
