Overview

When runaway teenagers Don and Janet pull off a mountainside road just outside of Albuquerque for a few hours' rest, they don't expect to wake up 1000 years in the future, in a world they can't recognize.



There, Earth is a desert planet where nomadic tribes are little more than slaves to the Ganu, the powerful and dominant ruling tribe.



When the young couple is befriended by a small tribe, and Don is hailed as their mythical and prophesied savior, the young couple must use all their cunning and resourcefulness to defeat a powerful, cruel enemy and save the lives of their new friends.



This time travel, dystopian novel has elements not suitable for young children or readers adverse to violence. If you like a good David-meets-Goliath fantasy story, then this is the book for you!

This was a fun read. Though I wasn't surprised by many things, it didn't distract from the book. The way the author wove the tale and the details of an altered world were where the magic really happened. I liked the passion of the protagonists and how the unexpected taught them about who they were. I don't want to spoil anything, but I think my favorite part about the story is the dedication of the characters - to what they believed to be right. It spoke to my heart! This was a fun read for me; light enough to enjoy while having enough action, romance, and heartbreak to give it depth. Well done!

They were runaways, in love, young, and driving into what looked to be the perfect future! With Bologna and cheese sandwiches and an old, beat up car, Don and Janet had the future set out before them. Little did they know, that night under the dark Albuquerque sky would find them waking up to a new future, one thousand years from now and a world devastated by a mutant race of survivors from some radioactive Armageddon, and they were worshiped and revered as the prophesied ones who would lead them to freedom and safety. Can these two teens step up to the plate when given the chance? Never underestimate youth given the chance to shine! A simple and quick tale that is a great light escape from reality, by Sahara Foley has a little of the best of all worlds, young love, a trip to the future, heroics in battle and some pretty unique characters. Don and Janet are truly teens from their actions to their dialogue! A fun read, nothing too heavy, dark or deep, yet still an engaging read! Kind of like a diet sized portion when you are short on time! I received this copy from Sahara Foley in exchange for my honest review.

Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite We Journey No More by Sahara Foley finds youngsters Don and Janet apprehended on their way by Dal, the lizard riding Guard, who decides to take them to the high priest. Don realizes that they have adventures of the highest order forthcoming when he starts observing that “they’re going to have to wipe out the human population, because we don’t give up easy.” Don and Janet get drawn into this fight and realize to their dismay that “they started exterminating the human camps with the endless Holy Wars between the smaller camps and they are as insidious as they’re hideous.” Don and Janet have to think of new strategies to counter the threats posed to human civilization and come out victorious in the end. We Journey No More by Sahara Foley is a story with intrigue at every turn as well as a looming atmosphere of adventure. The bulwarks of the new society or culture confronting Don and Janet, like getting halved in place of getting married, are presented with imagination. However, the fact that the story is taking place a thousand years from now could have been shown intuitively by an appropriate ambiance, catapulting this tale to greater heights. This is a very good read, with all the characters and events reflecting a high degree of ingenuity and clever manipulation.

Reviewed by Eileen Johnson for Readers' Favorite We Journey No More by Sahara Foley opens in the desert in the United States Southwest near Albuquerque, where we meet main characters Donald Giroux and Janet Bartinski. They are young runaways from Kansas who are on the way to California where Don has an interview for his dream job as a software game developer. Having driven all day, the teenagers pull off the road for the night to get some sleep before continuing to Anaheim. When they awaken, the world and their lives will change forever. The teens find themselves in a world that they do not recognize where the topography has changed and even the skies are not recognizable. Don thinks he must be in a dream as he and Janet meet hideous creatures and a band of people who believe Don is the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy. Janet more accurately believes that they have been mysteriously transported to an Earth far in the future. In We Journey No More, Sahara Foley has created a great story that will appeal to those readers interested in a realistic fantasy. The customs of the tribe they join are interesting and the history of the tribe is well developed. While I would have liked to see additional character development, We Journey No More is a good read with an interesting plot. The end of the book had me cheering for Don and Janet. Would love to see a sequel to this book...and perhaps a prequel that further defines the events that led to this book. A fun book and quick read. Read it!

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite We Journey No More is a sci-fi time travel adventure by author Sahara Foley. A teenage couple tear away from society at the opening of this young adult novella near Albuquerque, New Mexico, only to find that fate has handed them a powerful and problematic new destiny. Don and Janet wake from sleep to discover a whole new world around them, one thousand years ahead of the place where they rested their heads. Earth is a wasteland in this super-modern age, ruled by travelling tribal people, with the tribe of Ganu most powerful of them all. There are new friends to be made as Don makes quite an impression on the tribal folk, but there are also new enemies who threaten the couple’s young existence. Donald Giroux and Janet Bartinski are a typical pair of American kids looking for escape in the early 1990s. Thinking themselves capable and well-informed on the world, they set out with optimism and love on their side, and both these things are sorely tested as they encounter a whole new place and time less than twenty-four hours into their grand adventure. Author Sahara Foley expresses their youthful spirit with snappy dialogue and quick prose that immediately engages the reader and keeps you rocketing through the storyline. I particularly enjoyed the fascinating and somewhat brutal world of the tribal people, and found myself wishing that the novel was a little longer to fully cement the beginning of the fascinating world-building. Overall, We Journey No More was a thrilling little YA read.
