Product Description

Product Description

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 . . .

The end is approaching for the TimeRiders. In a final effort to prevent time travel destroying history, Liam and Maddy jump forward to 2070 to confront the enigmatic Waldstein and prove once and for all if he is friend or foe. What they discover is more shocking than anyone could have imagined and soon the TimeRiders are on one final mission - back to Biblical times to save the whole of humanity...

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.

He lives in Norwich with his son, Jacob, his wife, Frances, and his Jack Russell, Max.

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 written the nine-book teen series TIMERIDERS which has won a number of awards, been 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.

Alex is represented by Veronique Baxter at David Higham Associates

I've never actually written a review of anything I've bought on Amazon before, but I told myself that if I enjoyed this book, I would finally do one. So, er, spoiler alert - I enjoyed this book. You can probably tell by the fact that I'm posting this the day after it was released that I binge-read it. I've been waiting on this since The Mayan Prophecy was released in August 2013, so I've had 15 months of theorising of how Alex Scarrow was going to end this great series he conceived, and I've got to say, it was worth the wait. Just to clarify, I'll keep this review free of spoilers

Those of you who have read the series up to now will know there was a lot riding on this book, a lot that needed to be tied off and resolve. It takes off immediately where you want it to - Liam and Maddy finally want some answers, and thus our story begins. I will admit, Liam's side of the story was a bit slow at times, but I was still fully involved. My first thought was that this book was going to be non-stop explosions, non-stop action from start to end. Actually, it's paced about the same as the rest of the series. Everything gets going pretty quickly, but then it's somewhat slow-burning. Without wanting to give too much away, the "meeting" with Waldstein doesn't actually happen until about three-quarters of the way through. Up until then, it's a well-paced, though not necessarily action-packed, journey. In hindsight, that probably made more sense.

The reveal of what's going on - no spoilers, I promise. What I will say though is that out of all the things I thought the resolution might be, none of them were quite like the eventual reality. And, when you do reach the last quarter of this book, be prepared for twists galore - there's a lot of them and I never saw any of them coming.

This is a little bit of a review with a difference. The Infinity Cage is the ninth and final book in the extraordinary TimeRiders series. Ostensibly aimed at youngsters, I don't think Alex Scarrow could have targeted TimeRiders more directly at me if he'd tried. Over the last few years I have jumped on each of these books as they've been released and now, knowing that the series is done, it's hard on the heart indeed. The good news, though, for others if not for me, is that now you can read books 1 to 9 in one fell swoop, no agonising tearing out of one's hair during those irritating long months of drought. It's all out there waiting for you and what a treat you have in store.

It hardly needs saying but you would be certifiable to read The Infinity Cage without having read the preceding eight books. Were you to do such a thing you would drown in a foggy bog of unknowingness. It also makes it a very difficult book to review. I don't want to give anything away about what is to come nor do I want to spoil what's gone before. But what I do want to say is that The Infinity Cage finishes the series perfectly and satisfyingly. Alex Scarrow mapped out the entire length of the series from the very beginning and it shows. Not only is the series well-structured but it also has all of its loose ends and time travel strings of conundrums, of which there were many, tied off neatly. That is no mean feat. Also, by now we are all attached to the TimeRiders themselves - finishing their story to the satisfaction of their fans cannot be easy, but Alex Scarrow knows exactly what to do. He also has the confidence to have the fates take their course with key characters - some of the main figures do die in TimeRiders.

This final novel in the Timeriders series is a little disappointing in terms of maintaining an exhilarating narrative that the previous 8 books delivered. Having said that, the purpose of this final instalment was to drill a definitive message on the state of our world in ecology, religion and the nature of humanity. It does so with an aggressively preaching approach and very much directed at the the fresher minded youthful generation. In fact, at the end of the book after the end of the story, the author Alex Scarrow, writes a special message to readers inviting, strike that...instructing us to offer our opinions...coaxing a certain train of thought. I noticed that Alex has been touring around schools and I thought nice tactical idea to market his books but having finished the book, I realise there is more to his touring the schools than that. I realise he is spreading the messages of the books to encourage young people to think of the world's future and what religions are about...its a commendable mission. Although I ahve to say he may be brainwashing his readers and schools that he has visited! But you know what, if I had to be brainwashed then I rather be brainwashed by Alex Scarrow! Well in all honesty I am too old to be brainwashed, I already have my own opinions which I admit are not so extreme as the authors.

So know this, the author is very aggressive with his opinion on world religion and ecology in this final novel. Its very blatant and hardly subtle so keep it in mind.

Sorry, let me get back to the book itself. Its always a joy to be alongside our familiar protagonists and the author maximises the poignancies of their epic experiences and developing maturity and relationship.
