Too damn good I have to wait too damn long for the next one So far each book has been even better than the lastThe time travel elements are even ambitious this time around Well it was ambitious in the first two books but even so here I don t think I got my head ound all the intricacies of it In all honesty I suspect there are plenty of loop holes but the narrative is so engrossing I don t eally mind and just accepting the ules the book throws at me The characters are superbly defined with some bitter sweet moments including the artificial ones for which the author cleverly and entertainingly takes us into their thought process This time around we get a fascinating snapshot of the days of 12th century England and alternate time waves to boot My history isnt great so I don t know how accurate the historical aspects of this are but there are some surprising twists to certain historical figures depicted in other books and films It matters not whether the event and motivations were true however as its credit to the book to infuse that curiosity in the first placeOnce again this is than just a young adults fiction This is a clever thrilling fast paced and extremely entertaining popcorn fiction for all ages 14 upwards Bring on book 4 please Seriously when the heck is that coming out I am loving this series so far and can t wait to see what the next few books have in store for the TimeRiders These books are eally eye opening and teach the eaders a lot about science and history I m particularly looking forward to the next book in the series book 4 because this one ended on a cliffhanger and I want to ead on to find out if that is esolved or figured out in the upcoming books I would definitely ecommend this series to everyone especially to people who like action and adventure and are interested in time travel I 3 THIS SERIESyes it is getting a little epetitive but I 3 eading about how history is altered and what the conseuences of it would beNOW let me get to the eal eview Dwe ve all heard of Robin hood and admired him but we keep forgetting that he is a myth and it is possible that he did not do all he was said to have done and this book explores that fact and what would have happened if king john had been killed liam is becoming a strong and wise young man and becks and bob provide a lot of laughs in very difficult circumstances sal on the other hand is becoming a side character and sometimesyou forget that she s actually therewhich i find a little dissapointing maddy is becoming a leader and is finally given the importance that is due to her in this novelaccording to me adam lewis on the other hand is a welcome additionHe makes this story uniue in his own way. Avel 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.
