review 1: I loved this book and was a little sad when I finished it. Not all authors can do the past and present stories well, but this one is seamless. I loved the 'past' story. As the book progresses the author does an amazing job of creating a terrifying atmosphere in the camp. He manag...

review 1: TimeRiders is about "time police" known as TimeRiders. Their job is to protect history from being changed. This book introduced me to the concepts of time travel and the detail of its explanations have made it very interesting. Its combination of a robust buildup of story with ch...

review 1: A podarilo sa mi to aj dočítať. Neverím. :D Bolo to naozaj dobré. Dinosaurov som mala vždy rada (brat ma s tým nakazil). Autor proste vie narábať so slovami a vždy dosiahne, aby som sa dobre zabávala a celý čas ostala v napätí :) Şok ani tento krát nechýbal, dokonca toto prekonal...

review 1: This series is getting better and better. I have no idea how true to life/well researched the events in history are but there's nothing that jars or feels wrong. The characters are immensely likeable and now that Scarrow has introduced a couple of recurring questions that follow ...

review 1: I really loved this book. Here is a quick summary of the beginning to see if you want to read it. The Time Riders are Liam O'Connor, Maddy Carter, and Sal Vikram. They are all kids who were saved from death to serve as a Time Rider. Their job is simple, keep history how it is sup...

review 1: This was a good book but for some reason did not have me glued to the book or leave me hanging in suspense. Liam, maddy and Sal, the main characters are further developed and there is a surprising turn of events as robots sent from the future start attacking them and New York su...

review 1: I really enjoyed this book. i felt the author did a great job of keeping my interest and loved the back and forth of padt and present. If though this was fiction I liked the relationship to the Morman church and the Quakers. The book gave good detail as life may have been headin...

review 1: Would be a perfect book out of the 6 I've read so far, if not for the one specific details that appeared a couple of times and bugs me, in the previous book Rashim from 2070, almost insane at that point, says to the Time Riders and Rashim from 2069 about so called "Pandora event"...

review 1: This is just..... Wow. I'm speechless everyone. Alex Scarrow, why. Just, why. I'm both sad and excited for the finale after reading this book. I have no idea how it'll end. It is just that unpredictable.. Like the end of this book. It was a lil draggy and slow at the beginning. A...

review 1: It's been a while since I delved into the world of the TimeRiders - I've been saving them up so as not to have to hang on too long for the final installment. With book nine only a few weeks away, I opened up the seventh installment, slightly nervous about what was in store. The i...

review 1: I come across the series because of Kirsti and thank god I did. At this point, I have only read the first book but it's definitely not the last because it's teenagers traveling through time, what's not to like about that?I really did enjoy the characters and there was not a lot o...

review 1: Alex Scarrow a longtemps été guitariste de rock. Puis, de graphiste, il est devenu concepteur de jeux vidéo et auteur. Il a ainsi écrit plusieurs thrillers pour adultes et des scénarii. Time Riders est sa première série de romans pour jeunes adultes. Pour son plus grand plaisir, ...

review 1: This was just as exciting and thought-provoking as the first book, but in a different way. Although I will say that there is a pattern developing that I don't think can be avoided: time-alteration happens, changing the known time stream, generally to one we wouldn't ever want (...

review 1: Je vais être honnête : ce second tome m'a beaucoup moins plu que le premier. Je ne sais pas si c'est parce-que le premier tome sert au placement de l'histoire, qu'on y découvre les personnages, leur caractère, qu'on vit avec eux leurs appréhensions et qu'on comprend toutes les qu...

review 1: Tämä sarja ei petä.Jostain syystä olen edellisille kirjoille antanut vain neljä tähteä. Ehkä uutuuden kankeutta. Kolmannessa osassa tietää jo, mitä odottaa ja silti eteen tulee jälleen uusia juonikiekuroita ja jännitystä seuraaviinkiin osiin asti.Lyhyet lyhyt rytmittävät hyvin ei...

review 1: As per usual, a super fun read! I think this has been my favorite book yet. I'm very interested in the Medieval period anyway, so it was a great to be immersed in it throughout the book and meets some very interesting characters. Also, I like the imaginings of what the future w...

review 1: More like 3.5 stars. I didn't enjoy this quite as much as the previous two. Possibly because I struggled to get into the history side - the Crusades isn't really my jam - but more likely because reading three of these books back to back has made it fairly obvious that they're a l...

review 1: I was very excited for this book as it is most definitely one in a fantastic series.I have rated it three stars because though the concept for this series was highly intriguing, I found that this particular one was the least engaging so far.Not to say that the book is bad or anyt...

review 1: 3.5 stars. It was only a matter of time before this series tackled Ancient Rome, and it did it in a pretty great fashion. The idea of a multi-national group of people going back in time from The End of Days to try and change the course of history was fun, but then I spent a decen...

review 1: Less like TimeRiders and more like Tomb Raiders, this edition of the series has some significant story updates with just a smattering of time travel thrown in. This book really started to make me question some of the time travel logic - something you can't do too much of in any s...

review 1: 2.5 stars. Meh. This was easily the worst of the series so far. Which isn't to say that it was bad, just that it didn't live up to my expectations based on earlier books in the series. I was pretty excited about a pirate story, but it just ended up being really underwhelming. It ...

review 1: I waited until after I'd finished the TimeRiders series before diving into a new series from Alex Scarrow, but they aren't really comparable. The first book in the Ellie Quinn series introduces the central character - a girl stuck on a boring planet, hoping for more from life - a...

review 1: Easy reading young adult sci-fi, great for reading on the train.My only complaint with this book was that it seemed to be over before it had begun when the story was only just kicking off, even for the first book in a series!There isn't much novel or unique about the (futuristic)...

review 1: More Jack the Ripper than Titanic, but an interesting take on a Ripper theory (a theory mainly in the minds of film makers I suspect) linking the murders to an errant member of the Royal household. The plot moves along at a good pace and there can't be many re-tellings of this ta...
