One of the things I really love about this series is the characters - they're quite memorable, even the bad guys (let's just say, I wouldn't want to ever cross paths with Davidro - the man is just plain ghastly). I also like the way Carol has been slowly unravelling more of the Concordance universe as the story progresses, revealing how corrupt the CPS actually is especially in the way they treat Minders (those with telepathic, telekinetic, cleaner, sifter and other types of psychic abilities). The Concordance universe is a fascinating and diverse place that I definitely wouldn't mind visiting, supposing that it was real, that is. Looking forward to more stories, memorable characters and great action in the next book, which I hope is not too far away :)
Jumper's Hope is the 4th book in the Central Galactic Concordance series, which starts with a spaceship crash landing. This fateful (or is it?) event leads to the reunion of Jess and Kerzanna, the hero and heroine, who each thought the other had died four years ago. It was impossible not to like these two, and I was with them all the way.
The fast-paced, kickass action then leads them away from Jess's quiet farm life on Planet Branimir into their epic battle for survival from an attack on the Faraon Azul intersellar ship, along with other goodies and baddies crew members (not to mention a couple of other
Continuing from Book 3, Pico's Crush, we again get caught up in Dixon Davidro's complex web of pure evil and gruesome cruelty, along with his right-hand man, the enigmatic and surprising Mr Renner and some of Davidro's other talented "pets". Along the way, Jess and Kerzanna meet some fascinating and endearing secondary characters who prove to be powerful allies. I would have loved to learn more about Neira Varemba and Tuzan, but what is revealed is an enticing and integral part of the story.
As the overall story arc progresses and reveals itself, the author has very skillfully provided such detailed and descriptive world building that, for example, I can actually imagine myself living in the at once nasty and appealing city of Ridderth where some of the story takes
Each time I finished reading the latest book in the CGC series, I've always thought it was my favourite so far, and Jumper's Hope is joyously no exception. I just love the imaginative technology in the CGC world and the dizzying power and diversity of amazing skills the
series' "minders" and "jumpers" possess.
I can't wait to see where this series takes me. I can clearly imagine the awe-inspiring potential and scope, even though I have no idea what will happen next. That's exciting. I thoroughly recommend this series to science fiction fans. The romantic element is necessarily minimal to make way for the unrelenting action, but it is there. And it's warm and fuzzy, despite some uncertainty, so I really hope we'll see more of Jess and Kerzanna.
Five supernova stars.
Very much recommended--but start with the first book in the series to fully appreciate what the bad guys have been up to!

I loved that her crop of bad guys is even more endearing and creepy than we first ran in to them. (How does she do that?)
Also, and I'm going to put this out here, Van Natta is a master at making you fall in love with her characters entirely by showing them to you through the eyes of another. She fills her characters with so much empathy and understanding of each other, as I reader I felt completely immersed in their relationships so when the bad things happened (and the did) there was a fantastic double (triple) whammy of worry for everyone.
I completely and whole heartedly recommend this series.
