Time Riders: The Doomsday Code by Alex Scarrow
Reviewed By: L.D.
Teens Maddy, Sal and Liam work for an "agency" whose mission is to keep history on the right track. Unfortunately, there are time travelers who go back in time and tend to mess up the past which then alters the future. Maddy, Sal and Liam feel a shift in the pattern of time and realize that they have to find the source of the shift and correct it or the future as they know it (as WE know it) may never happen at all. While Maddy and Sal deal with the altered present, Liam, with the help of Bob and Becks, two half-human, half-robot support units, travels back to Sherwood Forest to find out what has caused the shift.
Why I Picked it Up: The Doomsday Code is actually the 3rd book in the Time Riders series. I love time travel stories so when I read a review that mentioned time travelers going back to the time of Robin Hood to look for the Holy Grail, well, it caught my attention.
Why I Finished It: Maddy and Liam were both strong, likable characters. The story was fast-paced, action-packed and complex enough to keep me wanting to find out what happens next.
I’d Give this Book To: Anyone in high school or older who likes time travel, fantasy or science-fiction.
