Summary

Fifteen-year-old Bobby Pendragon is a loyal friend, sports star, devoted pet owner - and Traveler. Along with his uncle Press, Bobby has visited the alternate dimension of Denduron and participated in a civil war. He's also waded through the endangered underwater territory of Cloral. Now Bobby once again finds himself thrust beyond the boundaries of time and space into a place that seems somewhat familiar: First Earth.

Bobby and the Traveler from Cloral - Spader - have flumed to New York City, 1937. Against a backdrop of gangsters, swing music, and the distant sound of a brewing war, the two must uncover the evil Saint Dane's newest plot. But is Bobby ready for the difficult choices ahead?

A fairly good listen.

My son reads this series and this was one of several audio books we picked up to listen to on a trip. This writing is okay but not as good as I'd hoped in audio.

Totally worth it

This story just keeps getting better. I read most of the series as a younger teen and now I’m reading it again as a young adult. It’s bringing back so many memories as well as creating more. Re-reading has definitely brought more detail to light.

Amazing!

Audio performance was perfect for me, the book itself is amazing! Really helps the characters come to life and the voice effects/layering do even more to really sell the story

great narration and great voice effects

he made it sound like the voices were coming from a phone and made it sound realistic and not overly modified which makes it very easy to understand
