Impulse by Steven Gould

Impulse is the third book in the Jumper series and continues 10 years after Reflex ends.

Davy and Millie have a teenage daughter named Cent who desperately wants to go to a "normal" high school and be around people her own age. She is around the same age Davy was when he first discovered his abilities and fears for his daughter’s safety, and with everything that happened in the Reflex story, who could blame him.

Emily Rankin does a fine job narrating this story, it took me a long time to get used to her voice and cadence, by the end of the book I could only think of her voice as being Cent’s voice. But every time she was reading as Davy or Millie it really hurt my brain.

I bought this audiobook from Audible and listened to it using the Audible app on my iPhone.

From the publisher:

Cent has a secret. She lives in isolation, with her parents, hiding from the people who took her father captive and tortured him to gain control over his ability to teleport, and from the government agencies who want to use his talent. Cent has seen the world, but only from the safety of her parents’ arms. She’s teleported more than anyone on Earth, except for her mother and father, but she’s never been able to do it herself. Her life has never been in danger. Until the day when she went snowboarding without permission and triggered an avalanche. When the snow and ice thundered down on her, she suddenly found herself in her own bedroom. That was the first time.
