NEBADOR - the incredible journey of five young adults from poverty and oppression to respected citizenship in the wide universe ... This epic young-adult science fiction adventure continues as Ilika and his nine students make their way through the countryside as he teaches them. Tested by needy people, burned by steam, pounded by the ocean at high tide, and attacked by wild animals, they must find reserves of courage they didn’t know they had. A disaster threatens to end their journey when it catches them in three separate groups. They all come to the first mountain pass transformed, hardly recognizing the people they once were. - BOOK TWO: JOURNEY is the second book in the NEBADOR series. These stories are filled with wit-sharpening and skill-honing challenges - mental, emotional, and spiritual - for both the characters and the reader. - This is the HARDCOVER GLOBAL/LIBRARY edition in 10-point type, revision 2.

Where NEBADOR Book One was a beautiful insight to human nature, Book Two: The Journey was a lesson in growth. Often times, we wander through life and, if we're lucky, we stumble across where we want to be. Book Two, in my opinion, is a beautiful story about how we actually get there. In book two, relationships are tested and, in some cases, proven unbreakable. Many times this book broke my heart at the sheer truth of growing up not only physically, but emotionally. J. Z. Colby has a beautiful way of not only making a statement, but telling an incredible story that by the time I was done with this book, it certainly was no done with me.

`What are your lessons about? The students looked at each other, they all said at once, Everything!¿ (p. 74)The adventures of Ilika and his nine students continue: after escaping the city where the students were tested, the countryside awaits them. The countryside challenges them: trust, happy and sad discoveries, love affairs, and they become aware that the journey is one way.At the end of the book, coming to a mountain pass the group faces their past: from this high point of view, like a rite of passage, a step towards adulthood has been conquered.`Ilika was very proud of all his students. Each had, in his or her way, wrestled dragons to help solve their first serious trigonometry problem.¿ (p. 269)Colby chose trigonometry instead of dragons, vampires, etc. to talk to young adult. Is it a good choice? In part I think so, maybe the first book, The Test, narrated with an atmosphere of mystery (medieval city, monasteries, bracelet) grip the reader to the book better than Journey. Journey needs a bit of `taste¿ of dragons. `- I wonder if I¿ll have stories someday - Misa pondered out loud.- Someday, you¿ll be able to tell the story of the fire. ¿ Sometimes they¿re a little painful at first, but at time passes, they get easier to tell. Stories are like that.¿ (p. 243)

At times, part 2 of a series doesn't seem as interesting as the first book in the series. However, Journey, which is part 2 of the Nebador series is just as riveting.In this book, Ilika and his group of nine students journey across the countryside, learning not just new lessons on trigonometric equations or astronomy but also learning about themselves. Yes, one can emerge stronger by overcoming one¿s own weakness. The importance of EQ, rather than mere IQ or physical power is also brought out in this book, as is the importance of kindness and respecting others. Adaptability holds the key to not just success but even basic survival. At times, it is easier to run away from an alien environment, terming it to be evil or weird, instead of coming to grips with a new situation and adapting to it. Doesn¿t this sound familiar? Life is a constant journey and we do face the mental, emotional and physical challenges which Ilika and his students face in this book. Rini is emerging as my favourite character and perhaps his feelings on the second last page of the book is something I can resonate with. I call myself a wondering wandering and Rini sums this best. I quote: The present moment in which his spirit could soar from ocean to mountains, hills to forests, was enough to make him happy. Even if he became a slave again, they could never take away his ability to be filled with the wonder an majesty of everything he saw, everything he touched, even everything he imagined.As of now, all students journeyed across the countryside, they met little Kit ¿ a free spirited soul yet tied down to his deceased mother, and little Misa who lost her parents in a town-fire and is travelling with them. They encountered physical challenges, emotional challenges, had to test their intellectual capacities. Some of them emerged stronger. Perhaps the next book will lead us closer to whom out of the nine students will be selected as the five crew members of the ¿magic¿ ship. But even those who are left behind, will be better humans, having undergone various tests in their journey.

Excellent!! This book literally picks up where book one ends. Many sequels are stand alone, with minor ties to the previous, but not here. The story continues, but becomes more intriguing and the characters build much more depth. New situations are faced leaving the reader with thoughts of how you might react in a similar situation, and often how choosing a different reaction is better. The group is learning fast and creating bonds that leaving your mind wandering ahead, feeling saddened to know that not all can continue in the end...but on another thought, is there an end, or is each step just another piece of the Journey!
