Review: Traveler by L.E. DeLano

Traveler by L.E. DeLano
Paperback, 352 pages
Expected publication: February 7th, 2017 by Swoon Reads




Jessa has spent her life dreaming of other worlds and writing down stories more interesting than her own, until the day her favorite character, Finn, suddenly shows up and invites her out for coffee. After the requisite nervous breakdown, Jessa learns that she and Finn are Travelers, born with the ability to slide through reflections and dreams into alternate realities. But it’s not all steampunk pirates and fantasy lifestyles…Jessa is dying over and over again, in every reality, and Finn is determined that this time, he’s going to stop it… this Jessa is going to live.

Purchase


I wasn’t sure what to expect from Traveler. These types of stories can be very “hit or miss” for me, so to be honest, I don’t give them a shot very often. I don’t regret my decision to go ahead with this one.

While there were some aspects of the store that were clich̩, I think there was plenty of creativity to make up for it. The premise is fascinating Рa girl who finds out she can travel between different realities through reflective surfaces. In different realities there are different circumstances, of course, so there was a lot of pressure on the author to make the alternative realities believable and interesting. I think she did a great job with that, and seeing how different things were for the characters in other realities was one of my favorite parts of the story.

My other favorite part of the story was the dialogue. The banter between the characters was a lot of fun!

I will say that I had to force myself to finish the book, as the last few chapters were a bit lackluster. The epilogue pulled me back in though, and because of that, I might be looking out for the sequel!
