A fast-paced reality-bending adventure by Tim Richards.
Darius Ibrahim is not having a good week.
He's been threatened by a knife-wielding maniac on a London train, interrogated by a mysterious warrior woman beneath the city's streets, pursued by a military death squad in Melbourne, had his new girlfriend kidnapped and held hostage in Prague, and been captured and taken to another world.
And it's barely been three days since his life started to fall to pieces.
On top of all this, he's developed a bizarre ability that allows him to teleport in quite unusual circumstances - an ability that several deadly enemies will do anything to gain control of.
In a desperate struggle involving alternate worlds, Egyptian mythology, ancient prophecy, malevolent felines, underground railway stations and the power of dreams, can Darius survive the arrival of his newfound power?

Mind The Gap
I'm not usually a big sci fi fan but I bought this book after someone recommended it. What a great read! It's got plenty of action, a strong storyline, engaging characters and keeps you guessing right until the end. Also a nice twist to have a lead male character who isn't a typical macho hero and relies on brains rather than brawn.
A cracking good holiday read!
A high energy action-adventure read, with plenty of humour and a cracking pace. Strong and well developed male and female characters drive the action and it's easy to get caught up in the dangers faced by the leads, Darius and Viv. Even the 'bad guys' have depth and are engaging. The settings as Darius moves across our world and into a parallel one are vibrant, and there's the inherent mystery and drama of Egyptian deities and dreams to keep the surprises coming. It's a great holiday read.
