review The Dark River Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Fear stalks our lives In the press On the television Over the airwaves Across the internet Everywhere we go someone somewhere is always watching Waiting for the mistake that will reveal secrets truths lies the real story or what they want to believeNo longer is anonymity a given r. My first encounter with Twelve Hawks was through Spark which I found pretty darned awesome enough so that I decided to try another of his works My library doesn t have the first in the Fourth Realm trilogy so I decided to try my luck with the secondUnfortunately the book s pair of forewords gave our relationship a rocky start In the first foreword Twelve Hawks praises the people who took the message of his book seriously and started fighting the Vast Machine In the second he recaps what happened in the last book I was taken aback by the first because while I understand the concerns about technology and its misuse I tend to prefer subtlety in my authors and the earnest tone rather suggests tin hats to me The second one on the other hand just pissed me off I m of the belief that readers should be able to pick up any book in a series and enjoy the ride A recap indicates that the author lacks the basic skill of summarizing previous events within the book itself Certainly no one would accuse Twelve Hawks of subtlety and given the awkward moments of exposition in The Dark River maybe he was right to rely on a recapTwelve Hawks is an entertaining writer and I rather like the general idea of his dystopian world controlled by the Vast Machine but I think that reading this without the second book completely ruined my ability to enjoy the book to the full The core idea of the series is that there are extra special beings called the Travelers who have the ability to travel to other worlds which are pretty crap by the way and bring back the wisdom they find there They are protected by people who call themselves Harleuins and opposed by the evil Tabula who together rule the world via the Vast Machine aka all technology which gives them the ability to create a Panopticon Prison Basically the whole book involves Gabriel one of the last Travelers try to escape his brother who has gone to the Dark Side and joined the TabulaI don t like whiteblack goodevil worlds and Twelve Hawk s future is pretty simplistic the Travelers bring Light and Wisdom and Freedom to the world and the Tabula represent The Evils Of Technology Amusingly enough throughout we are told that Travelers bring progress and change yet in this book Gabriel s entire mission is to stop the Tabula from deploying advanced technology and to keep the advancement of science static In fact I honestly don t see why anyone bothers to protect the Travelers as other than being a bumbling naif Gabriel doesn t seem to do any good for anyone In addition Twelve Hawks must have figured he got all that irritating character development nonsense out of the way in the first book since it certainly doesn t figure much hereOverall The Dark River is an entertaining enough book but it sinks under Twelve Hawk s unsubtle attempts to transform it into something meaningful To him technology by itself is an evil While I agree that the level of surveillance now available is terrifying I think Twelve Hawks misses an important point while technology has provided ways to control and monitor us it has also given us ways to communicate and to monitor our monitors If you look at the scariest moments in history it is when people s access to information has been controlled While every action you make is undoubtedly monitored in some way we have access to information and ways to communicate than ever before The

review The Dark River Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB IghtWe are being controlled without our knowledge and we don't appear to care Daily we sacrifice little freedoms that will never be returned We are all victimsThey are some who will fight to the death to protect those freedoms They will not allow the forces of commerce and ideolog. I enjoyed The Traveler despite its cliches but with The Dark River I sometimes found myself embarrassed to be reading it This was most acute when the story suddenly turned into The Da Vinci Code Look I m not above reading fluff obviously but I do draw the line in some places which is why I ve never read The Da Vinci Code or Twilight so I felt kind of betrayed when my fluff turned into that other fluff out of the blue Some other issues1 Vicki went out like a bitch She was a good character a strong character and her death deserved to at least have some meaning like if her sacrifice had saved Matthew or something but no it was as if her life were worthless This happened with Lawrence in the last book so it shouldn t surprise me but it was still disappointing2 What was intriguingly prescient in the last book now seemed preachy with regard to the dangers of trading freedom for safety3 Similarly I felt like I was being given little lessons from time to time with no apparent point Like that women don t have it too bad in Ethiopia or that cappuccino shouldn t be ordered after 10am I like to learn things in novels but it should come as part of the overall story not as some preachy little side note Still at this point I ll read the last one just to see how it ends I expect to be embarrassed Thankfully on the Kindle no one will have to know my little secret
