Read an Exclusive Excerpt from The Wandering God, Book 3 in Joshua Pantalleresco's The Watcher Series

About The Wandering God:

Greater Worlds than These

Following the events of Stormdancer, The Watcher receives a vision in a dream of a city in turmoil. The dream haunts him, as does the voice that insistently repeats, 'Help me,' night after night. Leaving the safety of the tower of scientists behind, the Watcher and his friends embark on their final journey to locate the source of the message and come face to face with their most difficult obstacle yet: doubt.
Though they trust the Watcher, Kristen and the others can't help but fear that the voice in his head is driving him mad and leading them all to their deaths. Even the Watcher is afraid. He knows that listening to this voice risks everything he has obtained up until this point, but he can't help but continue to follow it, driven forward by curiosity and an  instinctive need.

Beyond volcanoes, rock people, and deserts of nothing but crystal, lies the City at the End of the World. And there, the Wandering God awaits...

Read an Exclusive Excerpt:

something's bothering him
the last few nights, his sleep has been restless
I hear him tossing and turning
a nightmare of some kind?
it haunts him even as he wakes

I wish he would tell me
it may not be real to me
yet I know it's real to him

I take a deep breath
trying not to worry about the things I can't control
moving forward on the things I can

no one greet us when we wake the next day
Jord-an is missing
I feel sad not saying goodbye
he had been so helpful since finding him
I want to say how grateful I am for all he did

all we find when we wake are some clothes
and a note
I glance at the folded paper
surprised to see a picture inside

it is hand drawn 
a portrait of Jord-an
holding that magical drink called coffee
raising a mug of it to us
I do not know the exact meaning of the gesture
but I know a goodbye when I see it
and feel a trickle of rain down my cheek

we just want to be free
why does freedom cut you off from everyone?
don’t we all want the same thing?

I have no answer to that question
that bothers me
but then, I did not want freedom at first
I did not know what it was
maybe it is the same for them
