“What happens after we die? Where, if anywhere, do we go from here? And, how much do our earthly choices influence our ultimate fate?  
A fantastic work of fiction, The Journeyman finds 17-year-old Paul Reid dead on a snowy hillside—but even though his life is over, his journey has just begun… Paul is transported from our world to a similar one that’s not at all the same. This place—The Commons—operates under its own rules, and its “people” (if you can call them that) are unlike any Paul has encountered before. From hazy film images and men constructed of their vices to larger-than-life bugs and folks who’re half-human, half-machine, The Commons is populated by oddities who have but for one thing in common: They all fear Mr. Brill, a selfish soul-sucking tyrant who’s found a way to exploit the afterlife and maintain a stronghold over The Commons. But there is hope that Brill’s stronghold will come undone, and that hope comes in the form of a boy who died on a snowy hillside, along with a few other misfit travelers who must make difficult decisions of their own… 
The Journeyman is a fast-paced, action-packed fantasy adventure that’s as profound as it is profoundly entertaining… Peck’s writing style is fluid, eloquent, and easy to read, yet highly structured and infused with insight, understanding, and knowledge that’s sure to leave readers pondering the basic questions at the foundation of this compelling novel, which is the first in a forthcoming series that promises to be well worth the read.” – Reviewed by Red City Review
