As a huge history buff, I found Jumper by Jeff LaFerney to be an excellent read. Following Flint Cole and Hannah Carpenter around not only the US, but the Middle East and Europe of today and yesteryear. How is that possible exactly? Well, Cole is a Jumper. He can travel from time to time and place to place in the blink of an eye. And Hannah? Well, girlfriend's got herself an artifact called the Staff of Moses that has some unexpected powers tied within it. As the two travel, they are being watched over by three really intense angels, hoping to protect the two as they battle with the forces of evil that teem throughout the world.

With hints of biblical history and mythology, those of religious faith will find some interesting references and significance within the pages of this suspenseful thriller. With various characters taking the lead voice, you jump right along with the story line from character to character and from past to present and back again. Jeff LaFerney has done an amazing job of managing the time and character shifts without confusing the reader. I also really enjoyed that Jeff was attempting to make a point about the impact that altering the past has on the present. The story itself really captured you once you got into it. I found myself gripping the pages late at night and racing to finish. Jumper is an excellent sci-fi adventure for readers interested in history, time travel, or general butt-kicking.
