The Never War is the third book in The Pendragon Adventure. In the novel, Bobby Pendragon travels to First Earth to stop Saint Dane from winning it. Characters introduced in this novel include Gunny, and Patrick Mac.
Bobby Pendragon and Vo Spader first go to Veelox, where they meet Aja Killian. She reports to him that Saint Dane has traveled to First Earth, while doing a great deal of yelling at them. They then travel to First Earth, only to be ambushed by gangsters sent by Saint Dane. They force Bobby to give his ring to them, and then force them on the train tracks. A train almost hits them when they suddenly jump out of the way, and run to the subway. There, they meet Vincent "Gunny" Van Dyke. The gangsters come and asks to find them. A newspaper vendor gives them away. Then, Gunny uses his traveler powers and forces Bobby, Spader, and the gangsters onto the train while coaxing the gangsters. At the last second when the train doors are about to close, they run out, trapping the gangsters on board.
