It is half term and so I have a little more time to scour the internet for book news. Just a few minutes ago I stumbled across the cover for the next TimeRiders book, due out in August. Until this moment I hadn't even realised that its title had been released, although I did know that it was to be set during the American Civil War.
The title of TimeRiders Book Four is The Eternal War and the blurb on the Puffin website reads as follows:
A time wave has struck that alters the entire history of the American Civil War. Abraham Lincoln has followed Liam into the present from 1831 - and now the world is in a dangerous state of limbo...
If the TimeRiders can't return Lincoln to the past, the Civil War will never end. Can Maddy persuade two colonels on either side of no man's land to cease fire long enough to save the future?
What a storyline! In my opinion this sounds like the most intriguing and exciting to date. And yet again, designer James Fraser has produced a cover that makes me go WOW! Occasionally publishers have changed the design of the covers of a book mid-series (Percy Jackson and Jimmy Coates are two exmaples that spring to mind) - I really hope this doesn't happen with the TimeRiders books.
