Steven Gould returns to the world of his classic novel Jumper in the thrilling sequel Impulse.
Cent has a secret. She lives in isolation, with her parents, hiding from the people who took her father captive and tortured him to gain control over his ability to teleport, and from the government agencies who want to use his talent. Cent has seen the world, but only from the safety of her parents' arms. She's teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but she's never been able to do it herself. Her life has never been in danger.
Until the day when she went snowboarding without permission and triggered an avalanche. When the snow and ice thundered down on her, she suddenly found herself in her own bedroom. That was the first time.

This book is awesomeeee!!!!!
Great read, i expected a bit more but it's alright. ( maybe a couple of hounded more pages ) I definitely recommend this book to Steven Gould's fans, specially of you've read all the jumper related books.
Very good, but not quite as good as Jumper or Reflex
The narrative splits between the small story (Mean Girls), the medium story (helping refugees) and the big story (the Evil Organization), and it's all a bit bolted together. I'm hoping there will be a fourth novel, because the big story isn't fully resolved at this point.
Still, it's nicely written, entertaining, and the author again does interesting things with the central concept of teleportation.
One thing: given that the author has made the effort to explore the practicalities of teleportation through the main characters' own investigations, it seems odd that they wouldn't have worked harder at it -- Millie should be an expert at the in-two-places-at-once trick, and Davy, once Cent has proven it's possible, should be all over the control-momentum trick.
Again, it's really nicely done, overall.
