A thriller full of spectacular effects (Guardian)

Insanely exciting, nail-biting stuff (Independent on Sunday)

About the Author

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 designing games. Alex lives in Norwich.

Another excellent book by Alex Scarrow. Really good teen fiction can be read by all ages just take Mr Potter as an example. Now in their 4th adventure the time travelling trio find themselves in the company of Abe Lincon. It was one of those plots that after I had finished reading it I really did wonder if one man could make such a difference. If you have read the 1st three, get this one with confidence. If you haven't read the earlier book I would suggest reading those before this one as there are a few sub plots that appear in earlier book. Roll on book 5!! Out in Feb '12 I think!

TimeRiders Book4, a series that grows and improves with every book, and that's not a simple compliment to the author because book one was a 5 star excellent read.
This is a fun series for any age, i'm 40 and i love them, I have bought all of them for myself, my 21 year old son, my 15 year old nephew, 12 year old niece, various cousins and my friends kids and they all love them.

Book 4 is a return to the brilliantly written characters that Alex Scarrow is so well known for and his greatest talent, the last book has been awarded the Red House Children's (older readers) book of the year 2011 for writing those amazingly real and likeable characters.

The story as usual roars along at a frenetic pace, so fast in fact that you will struggle not to devour the book in one sitting
As usual we get a further peek at the overall series back story that gathers pace as the series progresses, as story within a story, and at the end we are left to wonder where this writers imagination can take us next. This is a Book and series that has more awards in it and a writer that has further brilliance to put onto paper.

For those who have not, I suggest you go read his other thrillers, A thousand Suns, Last Light, Afterlight and October Skies all also brilliant stories.

Highly recommended.

I found this latest book in the series to be a fantastic read. I have been hooked on all of the books in the Time Riders series and I am 57 years old and I believe they are written for the teenage market.
If you love time travel this is a series for you and this book 4 is amazing.
Well done Alex I can't wait for the next ones.

Alex has done it again, he takes a piece of history and wraps a story around it. His writing and attention to detail keep you on the edge of your seat. you even get to thinking Bob & Becks are real people. If you think time travel is high Tech! Think again. It's about a group of people trying to protect our world as we know it. The stories are so absorbing you can actually see what's happening.The whole series is a "What If" moment

My son really likes this series - and I'm encouraging him to read more long novels - so I bought him this book (and the others in the series). I also bought the physical book, to get him used to reading from something other than a screen.

I bought a used copy - and the condition etc was fine.

Be aware that the Timeriders stories are quite violent, with a very high 'body count' and lost of grisly deaths - but most 'childrens novels' are these days.

As stories go, its an interesting enough time travel sci fi tale, and the kids seen to enjoy it. Because its time travel it does require a bit more thought than the average novel to follow the story, which is particularly good if you're trying to use the reading to increase concentration and comprehension.

This fourth installment continues this remarkably clever and exciting time travelling saga with yet another fast paced rollicking adventure featuring our very likeable young heroes.

Each book features a fascinating time in history which encouraged me to find out more about historical figures and events. The first book featured World War 2. The second book went a tad further back...into the Jurassic period! The third book ventured to 12th century England and finally, this latest installment takes us to...the present, well sort of, a changed present in which the American Civil War never ended.

By now our young heroes have matured given the horrors and adventure they have been through in the past 3 books. So too have the human androids who remind me of Arnold's T2 character even down to the relationships with the youngsters. Yes, there are nods to many elements in other classic films and books but I have no complaints when they are cooked into a most deliciously inventive feast as this.

One highlight about these stories are the author's interpretations of popular historical figures of the past which whilst can be true, gives a nice twist to their characters' true motives. This is no exception where the character of Abraham Lincoln features prominently in this story and is quite a delight to read.

Another highlight is the inventive vision of how technology would evolve in a different timeline. Very imaginative and believable in how certain areas of technology accelerated further than what we have today whereas other areas had not progressed since the 18th century.

If I do have a gripe, it would be that the sense of urgency pattern has become a little repetitive.
