Travelers' Tales is the fifth book in The Traveler Series, which began with Variation Seven and continued in Strange Times, Living in the Future, and Dying in the Past. Travelers are the men and women who possess timebands -- cybernetic devices that allow the wearer to travel in time and change history. There are only twelve timebands and twelve Travelers, and those individuals have divided themselves into two rival factions, each with a different view of what the destiny of mankind should be. One group is attempting to steer humanity toward a bright future where it colonizes the stars, and the other is determined to work toward the extinction of the human race before it can infest the galaxy like spreading plague.
One of these Travelers is Ruthie Terwilliger, who, despite possessing time-traveling powers beyond her understanding, is trying to create a normal life for herself, her husband Miles, and her young daughter Miranda. But she awakens one night to find herself many centuries in the future, the guest of a secret society known as the Family. As she learns the incredible secret behind the Family, she wonders if this is only a dream -- or a terrible nightmare waiting to come true?
Meanwhile, her team is searching for a boy lost somewhere in time. William Han, the only son of Ruthie's teammate Denise, has been hidden away in another century by Sarah Rickert. The team succeeds in finding him -- but is he an unusual infant in a twenty-first century orphanage, or a full-grown assassin in 1914, bent on changing the history of World War One? And what is his connection to Simon and Rebecca, the evil twins still scheming to kill Ruthie and her friends?
Travelers' Tales is the fifth book from author Mike Manolakes in the Traveler Series, the story of Ruthie, her friends and foes, and the alternate histories they create.
