Just had a Tweet about a new book series coming in the new year - TimeRiders by Alex Scarrow. I have read a number of Scarrow's adult novels and , just as with James Rollins, his YA books should be fantastic. The concept for TimeRiders is great:
Liam O’Connor should have died at sea in 1912. Maddy Carter should have died on a plane in 2010. Sal Vikram should have died in a fire in 2029. Yet moments before death, someone mysteriously appeared and said, ‘Take my hand . . .’ But Liam, Maddy and Sal aren’t rescued. They are recruited by an agency that no one knows exists, with only one purpose – to fix broken history. Because time travel is here, and there are those who would go back in time and change the past. That’s why the TimeRiders exist: to protect us. To stop time travel from destroying the world . . .
Sure to be a massive hit with the boys at school, but we'll just have to wait until February to get our hands on it.
edit: Just watched the youtube trailer with some of the boys at school - now even more excited!
