News: Book Cover - TimeRiders: The Eternal War by Alex Scarrow (TimeRiders Book 4)

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.


  1. My son loves this series - we had mid-term last week so we went to the bookshop and got the third in the series - looking forward to this one and thankful that Alex keeps producing such excellent books. :-)

  2. Hello, sorry to bother you, I'm trying to set something up and I'm looking for UK Bloggers. It seems that ARC (Advance Reading Copy) book tours are becoming increasingly US restricted and I am trying to gather a large amount of people exclusively from the UK to set up our own ARC tours. Of course, I need a lot of people of I'm going to prise some good ARC's off of the Publisher's grubby hands...

  3. Wow... i'm loving this cover art. Super impressed... I must admit I haven't read any of this series yet. But after seeing this I might just have to. I also hate when the publisher changes the artwork part way through a series. They did it with Jospeh Delaney's Wardstone Chronicles... very annoying...
