The Dark River opens in New York City with a stunning piece of news. Gabriel's father, who has been missing for nearly 20 years, may still be alive and trapped somewhere in Europe. Gabriel and his Harlequin protector, Maya, immediately mobilize to escape New York and find the long-lost Traveler.Simultaneously, Michael orders the Brethren, the ruthless group that has been hunting Gabriel, into a full-scale search. Gabriel yearns to find his father to protect him; Michael aims to destroy the man whose existence threatens his newfound power.The race moves from the underground tunnels of New York and London to ruins hidden beneath Rome and Berlin, to a remote region of Africa that is rumored to harbor one of history's greatest treasures. And as the story moves toward its chilling conclusion, Maya must decide if she will trade everything to rescue Gabriel.

Kritikerstimmen

"Engrossing....Part A Wrinkle in Time, part The Matrix and part Kurosawa epic." (Publishers Weekly)
"John Twelve Hawks has drawn upon both pop-cultural and literary touchstones and modified them to create a cyber-1984." (The New York Times)
"The stuff that first-rate high-tech paranoid-schizophrenic thrillers are made of." (Time)

Hilfreichste

Nicht so gut wie der erste Band

Der zweite Teil war für mich enttäuschend. Eine Superheldengeschichte mit viel Pathos und Kitsch. Ein bisschen mehr Realismus hätte der guten Ausgangsidee gut getan.
