Abigail Swish might not love her life, living in gang-ridden New York in 2035 and training to fight and survive with Compound 23. But she is grateful for a few things, especially her no-filter-between-brain-and-mouth best friend Lucy and her escape each night into a dream world far different from her own.
In fact, sometimes she lives for the fleeting moments she spends at night with the man who fuels every romantic fantasy she’s ever had. But each morning reality returns. She could just cry. But she won’t. Tears don’t change a damn thing.
Then without any warning, a month before her eighteenth birthday, everything does change. A guardian finds her. He explains, in a strangely familiar accent, that she was stashed on Earth for safekeeping and has been lost to her family ever since. And it is time to return home. To First World; a land of unimagined beauty.
Abigail and Lucy find themselves thrust from New York and into another world. Day one: traversing through an unforgiving wilderness. Yeah, because that sort of thing just happens every day. Luckily an unexpected savior arrives; the man from her dream-world. Brace is six-and-a-half feet of gorgeous perfectness, wrapped in an arrogance like no other. Unable to trust his assistance, and unsure which of her instincts to follow – kiss him or punch him in the mouth – Abigail eventually accepts his help to find her family.
And what a family. Enter Josian, her father, larger than life and apparently not even human. He is Walker, a planet-less race revered as gods, causing mischief and mayhem through-out this star-system. Unfortunately, there is no time for a cozy reunion, since her return to First World is the unknown catalyst, setting forth a chain of events which could spell disaster for all worlds.
When I first started reading this book, I didn’t quite like the beginning due to the slow start plus I’ve never read the post-apocalyptic book before. Hence I was struggling to digest the story. However, after reaching 20% of the book, I started to like the storyline. The mystery of who Abby’s parent, the alien world they heading to, it all started to pique my interest.
I especially like the friendship she had with Lucy! What I didn’t quite like about the book was how easy the main character accepted her fate and also I felt that towards the end of the story, it was rushing. It’s like being skipped forward – Abby’s relationship with her dad suddenly mended. However, I will still read the next book to find out their next journey in Spurn!
Book two in the Walker Saga follows Abigail and her friends as they tame the world of Spurn. ‘Go to Spurn,’ she was told.
Oh, and by the way the planet is ninety-five percent water and the inhabitants are hybrid fish. Of course, no one seems to care that Abigail can’t swim.
Surprisingly, jetting off to a water planet is not the weirdest thing to happen this week. But she’s on a deadline to the find the first half-Walker girl, as the very essences of the seven worlds are starting to unravel. And with each Seventine release the chaos richochets further.
Of course, with her Walker energy causing havoc and the savage Spurns … well, it’s safe to say nothing so far has gone to plan. And on top of that a bombshell she did not see coming. Secrets are revealed and loyalties challenged but with her best friend and soul mate by her side, can she really lose out?
The story started with a new character, the half breed that Abby and the gang needed to find. At first, I thought the story would continue with Talina to the end, but it wasn’t like that. Soon enough, Abby took over the story again. I didn’t have anything against Abby, though. It’s just that I wanted to know more about Talina, and hoping that she could show me her awesome power and led the team, instead of depending on Abby.
The ending of this book was killing me, but thankfully, I have the next book ready. I couldn’t wait to find out what happens to Brace and how did Samuel betrayed them. I’m sure there’s a reason behind it, and he wasn’t merely playing Lucy’s heart. He wouldn’t hurt that sweet little earthling! Off I go now to read book 3 – Crais.
The possession of Abigail’s mate has left their melding bond in tatters. But she has no time to grieve, the deadline still looms to collect the half-Walkers.
Together with her friends she ventures to Crais, the red land of the two suns. From the moment they step into the scorching heat, they’re surrounded by rock and death. And with limited time and oxygen they will have no second chances to figure out the secret to this planets survival.
And then, when she thinks all hope is lost, the Seventine make her an offer she can’t resist. But will her chance to save Brace be the catalyst that destroys the worlds?
The name and power were suitable for this bitchy character – Fury. It’s good that she wasn’t the same as Talina, and she had a good ending too. I started to like every world that Jaymin created. It made me wanted to visit these planets. However, I wouldn’t want to go to Crais with its scorching hot weather! Jaymin’s details words describing the worlds she created was enough for me to imagine it.
However, in terms of introduction on the new characters, I kind of wished Jaymin wrote a different opening and let us be in surprise, guessing who’s the next halfling Abby needed to track down. Nevertheless, the story still captivating, and in this book, we had a glimpse of how they were going to save the world. But up to this moment, I don’t believe that’s how it would ends!
Three of the Seventine are free and Abigail is running out of time to gather the half-Walkers for the final battle. And on top of that Lucy reveals her latest vision: Abigail must break the melding bond with Brace; if she doesn’t, everyone will die.
But is there one hope for them? New information from the Walker gathering reveals that there may be a ritual to return the Seventine to their prison. But they need four half-Walkers. And with the Regali half-Walker crowned the Queen-of-the-beasts, she might be the hardest to convince.
Abigail has her best chance to save the worlds and her bond with Brace. But will she make it in time?
In this book, Abby’s power grew more robust, and so does her best friend, Lucy. We also learnt about Lucy’s heritage, although not in much details, and we still do not know who her parents were. I loved it when the girls were turning to a badass and supportive of each other.
The new girl, Ria, also showed some impressive ability. We learnt about great news for Talina, and as for Fury, she was behaving nicely with the others. However, Abby was put in a terrible situation. Choosing between her bond and saving the world, I wished it didn’t have to go that way. Finger crossed, they will get the happy ending they deserved when the battle over.
Some days Abigail wonders why she gets out of bed and then she remembers; it’s her job to save seven worlds. No biggie, right?
Not to mention the breaking of her melding bond with Brace seems to have destroyed more than just her heart. She’s hurting all the way to her soul. All she can do is focus on the tasks at hand, and with this in mind she sets out to find the remaining half-Walker females.
The next world is Nephilius: a warrior planet. The inhabitants – Angelica – value fighting, bravery and honor above all else. Abigail planned on competing in their tournament, but in her weakened state she knows that she’s no match for them.
The need for a true warrior brings Brace back into her life, and Abigail has no idea if she’s strong enough to prevent their bond reforming. Sure, he doesn’t remember her, but they are and always will be mates.
Therefore Brace possesses a fundamental need to protect her. And right now her own instincts are screaming at her to ease the pain inside by throwing herself into his arms.
Abigail knew it was going to be a massive sacrifice, but for the sake of everyone’s lives she needs to be strong enough to stay the distance.
Of all the book in the series so far, Nephilius was my favourite. I couldn’t stop reading the story. The anticipation of finding out what happened next was what pushed me to finish reading the story in just two days. The part that I loved was the story of Lucy. I was happy for her for all that happens in this book.
As for the new half-walker, Delane. I still couldn’t connect with her, maybe in the next book, I’ll get to know her more. I’ve suspected Josian since the previous book, and I hope everything would turn out alright in the end. Abby would be devastated, and hopefully, by that time, her bond with Brace already mended.
With the convergence date looming closer, Abigail’s in the final countdown to imprison the Seventine. It is do-or-die time, and she is determined that the Seventine will be the ones who die, figuratively speaking. Her current priorities: gather the Dronish half-Walker female and reform her melding bond with Brace.
Dronish is a world more alien than any other Abigail has ventured through, which is really saying something. But it’s also a dying land.
The inhabitants are running out of energy and there’s little hope for their survival. Of course, that makes it very hard to convince Sapha – the half-Walker – that she should help save the star system. If her world is doomed already, she doesn’t care much about the rest.
Okay, task one is going to be tougher than Abigail anticipated, but at least reforming the bond should be easy … right? Of course, that was before she met with the lalunas. Now she knows that both items on her to-do list have jumped right into the realm of impossible.
I thought Abby would be devastated, but turned out she was alright. Her mum was the one who couldn’t accept it until it was too late! The ending of this book was crazy! I didn’t expect that at all. Sapha the new character was cautious, I didn’t like her though, Fury, on the other hand, has become one of my favourite characters in this series besides Lucy.
Overall, in this book, we read the awesomeness of the half-walker girls. Their bond and abilities were getting more profound and powerful, they managed to divert the impending danger fall upon Crais, and in return, they saved Dronish! However, the final battle has yet to start, and it’s time for them to find the last member on earth before it’s too late!
With Brace back by her side and the melding bond again secure, Abigail should be happier than ever. Right? Well, there’s still that little rodent problem of hers. The Seventine.
Six of the evil energy sucking entities are free and with the convergence fast approaching, there is no doubt that the final battle will be fought soon. All that stands between the Seventine and the end of the First World star-system is Abigail, the other half-Walker females and a gathering of races from across the worlds.
Abigail has never had so much to lose, but when everything is on the line, you fight with everything you have. She will never give up. But in the end, will she be able to save everyone?
Wow, the ending was awesome! Although not everyone survived the final battle, the sacrifice was necessary. I have a mixed feeling when reading this last book. I was happy that Abby finally gets her rest, but I was also sad to let go of the beautiful worlds and badasses characters the author had created.
The exclusive little scene right at the end was a nice touch, I loved Lucy, and I was happy to read her POV. I hoped the author writes a story about her journey unlocking the other side of her power. She would be more powerful! Anyway, it’s time to read another series by the same author. Hopefully, it would be as good as this one.
