History is broken, and three kids must travel back in time to set it right! When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste stumble upon the secret of time travel - a hand-held device known as the Infinity Ring - they're swept up in a centuries-long secret war for the fate of mankind. Recruited by the Hystorians, a secret society that dates back to Aristotle, the kids learn that history has gone disastrously off course.
Now it's up to Dak, Sera, and teenage Hystorian-in-training Riq to travel back in time to fix the Great Breaks . . . and to save Dak's missing parents while they're at it. First stop: Spain, 1492, where a sailor named Christopher Columbus is about to be thrown overboard in a deadly mutiny!

For any fans for maze runner James D has done it again although it's about time travelling Its not that hard to follow the story and you get to learn a little history on the way.
This was an amazing book my daughter loved it she has listened to it more than once since we purchased I have loved listening to it with her

Absolutely loved it! The audio version really moves along quickly.
Robert Heinlein wrote a book named Job: A Comedy of Justice that has a similar theme. A Mutiny in Time is an amped up contemporary version that I enjoyed more than Heinlein's book.
No, have not
The kids that saved history.
Can't wait for the rest.
Having enjoyed some of Dashner's other books, not just the Maze Runner Trilogy, I expected an enjoable book. I was disappointed. Dashner seems to have decided to write this book for a younger audience, and include younger characters. Unfortunately, the characters' interactions are much more typical of young people 3 or 4 years older than the supposed age of the characters. This leads to a sort of "disjointed" feel to the book.
The narrator began the reading with a fervor and exaggerated enunciations and emotions that were very distracting, although eventually he seemed to settle down.
The only good thing about this book was the plot idea, which was new to me. However when I described it to my spouse, she exclaimed, "That sounds exactly like (name of different book." So it appears Dashner's plot idea wasn't particularly unique either.
only for young teens. Too young and silly.
YEs, I loved Eye of Minds series and Make Runner
Interesting story, but there was almost too much history. I enjoy time travel stories, but this was a little too much like a history lecture at times.
My 10 year old son wanted this book for his kindle, so I picked up the audio book for a discount. It is a kids story, but I enjoyed it. Clearly designed to be an ongoing story for kids to read and learn a bit about history.
