Shortlisted for the Independent Booksellers Book Award 2011

This spectacular time travel series from the pen of Alex Scarrow just gets better and better. The first two were brilliant; this is the third and it's even better. All-action adventure time travel that will take you back to Sherwood Forest where the three Time Riders must unravel a cryptic code before someone else gets their hands on it. With a fast-moving plot it's the sort of book that will get reluctant readers away from their electronic devices and into a book.

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 2026. 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... In 1993 British computer hacker Adam Lewis finds his name in a coded manuscript that is almost one thousand years old. How did Adam's name get in there ...and why? Confronted by Adam in 2001, the TimeRiders travel back to Sherwood Forest in 1193 to discover the origins of the ancient message. But when a strange hooded man appears interested in the same thing, they begin to wonder what terrible threat this cryptic link from the past holds for the future...


A thriller full of spectacular effects - Guardian
