LoveReading View on Time Riders (Book 1)

Galaxy Children's Book Award shortlist 2010.

This is a thrilling action adventure which hurtles across time and place at breakneck speed. Three children are on the bring of death: Liam is about to drown as the Titanic sinks in 1912, Maddy is on an aeroplane fitted with a device which will destroy it in 2010 while Sal looks set to die in a fire in 2026. Each is offered a deal which means saying goodbye to their old lives… for a price. Meeting up and working together, the three make an unbeatable team fighting to save the world from imminent disaster.

Freddie, aged 11, loves Time Riders too:

I really enjoyed Time Riders ! The writer's imagination amazed me and I learnt a lot of historical facts. Two of the main characters are girls but it is still definitely a book that boys would enjoy. Finally it was action-packed and all 11 year olds love action! I cannot wait until the next book in the series.
