About this Book
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. Yet moments before death, someone mysteriously appeared and said, ‘Take my hand . . .’ But Liam, Maddy and Sal aren’t rescued. They are recruited by an agency that no one knows exists, with only one purpose – to fix broken history. Because time travel is here, and there are those who would go back in time and change the past. That’s why the TimeRiders exist: to protect us. To stop time travel from destroying the world . . .
The first book in the series sees our freshly recruited team thrown into the thick of it before they’ve had a chance to fully train. Paul Kramer, a brilliant physicist from the future, has plans to alter the past – to lead Nazi Germany to victory over the allies and to ensure an ordered World Reich under his rule.
Liam and the team’s support unit, Bob, are sent back in time to try and stall Kramer’s plans, whilst in the present, Maddy and Sal witness New York altered by the arrival of a time wave to a terrifying new reality – an apocalyptic landscape of ruins and the savage mutated descendents of some nuclear holocaust.
Can Liam and Bob fix history, before the mutants find the girls….and eat them?
