Book Description

3 Feb 2011 TimeRiders

The Doomsday Code: the third book in Alex Scarrow's exciting TimeRiders series

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.

Yet moments before death, someone mysteriously appeared and said, 'Take my hand . . .'

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 . . .

Alex Scarrow used to be a rock guitarist, then he became a graphic artist, then he decided to be a computer games designer. Finally, he grew up and became an author. He has written a number of successful thrillers and several screenplays, but it's YA fiction that has allowed him to really have fun with the ideas and concepts he was playing around with when designing games.

He lives in Norwich with his son, Jacob, his wife, Frances, and two very fat rats.

The TimeRiders series:

TimeRiders; Day of the Predator; The Doomsday Code; The Eternal War; Gates of Rome; City of Shadows; The Pirate Kings

Alex's thrillers for adults:

A Thousand Suns; Last Light; october Skies; Afterlight; The Candle Man

More About the Author

Alex Scarrow spent the first ten years out of college in various rock bands trying to get a record deal. Then, failing miserably at that he went into the computer games business as a digital artist.

After a decade in the games business, he ended up as a senior designer working on high-concept projects for next generation consoles.

Finally he got bored of all of that and turned his hand to writing. His first manuscript, A THOUSAND SUNS was published in the UK by Orion in 2005. He now has a number of thrillers out and has recently released the first book in his Young Adult series TIMERIDERS, nominated by Puffin as BEST ADVENTURE FANTASY in their recent BEST SEVENTY CHILDRENS BOOKS OF ALL TIME press release.

And coming soon, released exclusively on Amazon Kindle, is the ELLIE QUIN SERIES, which Alex describes as a chase story across a future universe that looks a bit like 'BladeRunner meets Douglas Adam's Hitch-Hikers Guide'. He has also described it as 'Bridget Jones in Space'.

Which is intriguing.

Alex Scarrow is fast building a reputation as one of the UK's most original writers.

"Alex is plugged into the zeitgeist - his themes of religious chaos, environmental catastrophe and the dangers of unchecked power are perfectly in tune with the times." - Orion Books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A key in the series 8 Aug 2013
By Sam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first I was reluctant to read this book but I was wrong this book tops the rest with a very simple plan that turns on its head and becomes incredibly addictive and a vital part in the series. Overall, great book, great read, and a addictive storyline. Five stars definitely.

This book again follows our little group of timeriders but it also makes you wonder if it is not just a novel but a biography it all seems so plausible even though it creates the idea of things we can only imagine, it never really goes beyond the realms of possibility, you could be left with the feeling that you never know, and it may even change your opinions of the history we were all taught at school.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great YA series 20 Feb 2011
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Whilst Alex writes a hard hitting set of Adult titles, its perhaps for his young adult novels that he's becoming better known, they're full of action, they have some great twists and they keep the reader gripped from the opening to the last page. Add to this some great characters who continue to grow from each adventure as well as a few unexpected twists and you know that this title is one that will keep the reader in love with the genre. A real find and a series that I hope will continue to expand in much the same way as this one, growing along with the readership. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner 11 Jun 2011
By Parm TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Review:
This is the third book in what is quickly becoming the hit Timeriders series, never a fan of young Adult fiction but always an admitted fan of Alex Scarrows work i approached the first book in two minds, would i feel obligated to like it, would it be too fluffy for an adult, would the language talk down to kids etc..
There was never that problem with the first book, the second or this fantastic third in the series so far.
Each book in the series truly gets better than the last, the plot lines cleverer, the characters more depth, and the emotional connection with the reader stronger.
I as an adult love these books, I have bought them for my son, my nephews and my god children all of whom love the series, and i will probably put a set away for my granddaughter for when she is old enough.
These books are for me a set of books with a story that can be read and reread with characters any age can relate to. The best part of this series is that there is so much potential it could run and run forever, when you mess with time you can mess with history and the results truly fun. I for one would be quite happy to see this series run forever with its current quality. (Parm)

5.0 out of 5 stars too good to be true 6 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Amazing! A good book for both children and grown ups alike but just to warn you the cliff hanger ending will force you to read the next book.

Bought this a present for a 13 year old boy. He had read book 1 and simply loved it so we got books 2 and 3 for him. He was chuffed to bits.

It is a very fascinating book with lots of facts. Some chapters are complicated and you need to read them slowly.
