“Mission accomplished! As the Travelers’ saga reaches the end, Enlightenment is a masterful finale. Layered plot lines, intrigue, and fast-paced action deliver Brian McCullough’s message evident throughout the On the Edge of Now series. Courage, will, and determination can conquer injustice, regardless of its form. What a fun and uplifting reading experience! Well done!”
“Just finished Book 6, Enlightenment, in the On the Edge of Now series. Loved it, and now I’m impatiently awaiting the prequel! Another cliffhanger ending kept me up to all hours of the night, and I have a sense we haven’t seen the last of our heroes. No wonder he’s winning awards for this incredible series!”
“The end—but, is it the conclusion? Once again, McCullough smoothly transitions between many story and plot lines, offering another satisfying read as it transports readers to another place and set of rules. In a final, dramatic twist, the stage is set for the prequel, leaving the loyal reader waiting for March, 2017. Reading the first 5 books will be time well spent!”
In their newest challenge, our portal travelling heroes face a world enslaved by alien lizards. Outmatched physically and technologically, the people of earth must rely upon their mental resources and strength of will. The arrogance of underestimating their opponent may be the lizard’s downfall.
Book V is full of action and exciting plot twists and turns! McCullough’s vivid imagination is given free rein, yet balanced with fine attention to detail. The characters are once more placed in extraordinary circumstances, but equipped with the tools to succeed. Logical explanations are provided, and the reader is permitted to suspend disbelief. The author delivers a story on multiple levels, always with the underlying message of hope.
Tag remains the main character, but other memorable characters are introduced and further developed. Relationships advance and there is even insight into the reptilian minds. Perhaps we are provided with a warning. Throughout the challenges, the bonds between people and the essence of what makes us human are recognized and celebrated.
The book moves rapidly with multiple storylines. It is a great summer read.
The stage is set for an amazing finale. I am still unable to predict fully what may lie ahead. That creates excitement in my mind and anticipation to read the next book. The travellers’ upcoming challenge is introduced in the last few pages of Book V, along with more cryptic information regarding the controllers.
This book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, but for maximum effect and enjoyment, I suggest reading the entire series in order.
McCullough did it again with Jagged Edge! Hooked after reading the first novel in the On Edge of Now series, the new sequel may be my favorite, so far. Coupled with his ability to weave an intriguing, engaging plot, he created another group of memorable characters I’ll remember long after turning the final page. Great read . . . can’t wait to find out what peril next awaits the Travelers!
