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 instead, they were saved. An instant before death, someone mysteriously appeared and said, “Take my hand…” But Liam, Maddy and Sal haven’t been rescued for nothing. They’ve been recruited by an agency that no one knows exists, with one purpose only – to fix broken history. Because time travel is here, and there are those who would go back in time to change the past for their own uses. That’s why the TimeRiders exist: to protect us. To stop time travel from destroying the world…

  • Timeriders involve three children, Liam O’Connor, Maddy Carter and Sal Vikram. Each of them should have died and disappeared from the face of the earth in accidents- Liam on the titanic in 1912, Maddy on a plane in 2010 and Sal in a fire in 2026. But a man named Foster has time travelled and saved them. Now they work for a secret agency which stops time travelling destroying history.

    I would give this book: 9/10 because it is very confusing at the start
