Timeriders begins with the 'death' of the three main characters, Liam, Maddie and Sal. Sal was saved from a collapsing building in slow, dying future, Maddie from a plane spinning out of control, and Liam from the bowels of the sinking Titanic. These people are saved by a man from a special agency,the Timeriders. This group was created to stop travel from destroying the past, present and the future.

Throughout this book, everything was totally unexpected. The story travelled down the opposite paths to what I thought it would take, and tiny subtle details added up to massive changes in the plot, for the better.

It would of taken a lot of effort to put in the effort to research this, because he had these minute little details, hardly noticeable that helped the author change human's history. Alex Scarrow made tweaks in our history to suit his needs, and all were entirely plausible, if time travel existed.

I recommend this amazing work of science fiction, it is unlike any book with time travel in it. It is well thought-out, makes you believe these things are possible, and their is a backstory to the time travelling. This is the bright star shinning more brightly amongst its constellation.

YOU MUST READ THIS!!
