Description

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.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 12, 2012 – Familiarity with Gould’s Jumper and Reflex (or, at minimum, the film of Jumper) is recommended before starting this initially confusing but intriguing story. Millicent “Cent” Ross is born in secrecy and raised in relative seclusion by her overprotective parents, Millie and Davy. The isolation isn’t without reason: government forces and others are looking for the Ross family. Millie and Davy have the ability to teleport, or “jump,” from location to location. Cent has only jumped with her parents, never on her own, until a freak accident unleashes her dormant power and opens up a whole new world. She demands release from her isolation, but controlling her power is as daunting as navigating high school, what with boys, sports, and a particularly loathsome bully. Fans of the series will enjoy meeting the next generation, but other readers may just feel lost.

Great!!

This book is awesomeeee!!!!!

Impulse

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.
