A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011. Lovers of time travelling adventure will be mesmerised by this second title in the Time Riders series. Three children from different times – Liam, who should have died at sea in 1912, Maddy whose life was to have ended in a plane crash in 2010 and Sal thought to have been burnt to death in a fire – have all been given a second chance by an agency designed to prevent time travel from changing history. Their new lives are put in danger when Maddy misguidedly opens a time window that leads back sixty-five million years to a world full of deadly dinosaurs. Will they stay safe and will they also be able to stop the past from being changed? This is the second in the Time Riders series; the first is Time Riders.

Synopsis

Day of the Predator (Time Riders Book 2) by Alex Scarrow

The Time Riders series trailer:

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. But all three have been given a second chance - to work for an agency that no-one knows exists. Its purpose - to prevent time travel destroying history ...When Maddy mistakenly opens a time window where and when she shouldn't have, Liam is marooned sixty-five million years ago in the hunting ground of a deadly - and until now - undiscovered species of predator. Can Liam make contact with Maddy and Sal before he's torn to pieces by dinosaurs - and without endangering history so much that the world is overtaken by a terrifying new reality?
