When the title said “Worlds Traveler” I immediately concluded that this would be about someone traveling the this world, the one we call earth. Boy, was I wrong! In the context of this book, a world traveler is someone traveling to different worlds! And what an adventure it is to travel with someone who can take you to different worlds!
The book begins with good friends, Philip and Natalie, exploring a dark mysterious cemetery. Seriously?! What are young teens doing at a cemetery in the middle of the night? Where are their parents and what are they trying to accomplish?
This is where readers learn that Philip and Natalie are not your normal teens. In fact they have special gifts. Philip can look at a paper and be taken to different locations and time travel using his gift. Natalie can take on someone else’s gifts and make it stronger, she can talk to others telepathically, and she’s serves at Philip’s conscience as he often makes impulsive decisions.
A sequel to the Magicians Doll, Worlds Traveler takes you in an adventure with the help of an adult who also has a gift, the gift to travel to other worlds. These different worlds include a place where everyone is in the shape of clouds and move around through stretching and floating, personifying the clouds you see above you every day. The various emotions results in the different types of cloud coverage that we see.
Another world is a dark place, a kind of waiting area before heading to the afterlife. There’s also a forest, where you must be invited to enter its secret center. It’s a place where history is written, vegetation is lush and welcoming.
Needless to say, the details in Worlds Traveler made me feel like I was right there with the characters looking in. I personally enjoy books that place me right there in the middle of everything. I also love books that expects me to use my imagination. There’s nothing better than the words coming to life in my head!
