Publisher's Summary

A thrilling sequel to the instant New York Times best seller Nick of Time, in which the young time traveler Nick McIver must prove his courage once more, on two fronts: in World War II-era England, where Nazis have invaded his homeland, and in America during the Revolution, where Nick stands shoulder to shoulder with General George Washington.

It’s 1940 and the Nazis are invading Nick’s beloved home, the British Channel Islands. So Nick takes to the skies: He has discovered an old World War I fighter plane in an abandoned barn. Determined to learn to fly, he is soon risking life and limb to photograph armed German minelayers and patrol boats, and executing incredibly perilous bombing raids over Nazi airfields by night.

Meanwhile, the evil pirate, Captain Billy Blood, still desperate to acquire Nick’s time machine, returns to Greybeard Island. He kidnaps Nick’s sister, Kate, and transports her back to Port Royal, Jamaica, in the year 1781, leaving Nick a message that if he wants to see her alive again, he must come to Jamaica and make an even swap: Kate’s life in exchange for Nick’s wondrous time machine—that’s Blood’s bargain.

Having traveled back in time, Nick discovers a plot that might change the outcome of the American Revolution. Disguised as an 18th-century cabin boy, he travels to the Caribbean and confronts his old enemy, who has assembled the world’s largest pirate armada.

From the battlefields of the New World to the brutal German occupation of English soil in World War II, The Time Pirate has Nick McIver fighting once again to defend his country, with the outcome of two wars resting on his young shoulders.

    "Time Pirate"

    What a wonderful story. I read Nick of Time last year and was thrilled to see a sequel had been published. Nick should be voted "boy of the millenium". The author mixies history with fantasy and pulls it off with a real thriller. I am 65 and wish I could go back in time like Nick and his friends....Nick and I would have made a great team. All boys should read this book...even Old Boys like me. This book was a Home Run, Touchdown, and a Slam Dunk..The reader was extraordiary with his inflections, accents and added so much to the story. The dialogue came alive and one could feel the fear, joy and tension. Great job by Mr. Bell and the reader, Mr John Shea. A Plus! In my opinion the sequel was as good as the Nick of Time. Wow! One of my all time favorite books Alan MacKay..Weston, Fl

    "a fun ride"
    If you could sum up Time Pirate in three words, what would they be?

    amazing feats for an eleven year old


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    it left me with a smile and ready for the next one


    Which character – as performed by John Shea – was your favorite?

    Gunner


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud more than once


    Any additional comments?

    This is aimed at teenagers but I've really enjoyed this and the first Nick McIver story as audiobooks to accompany lots of driving and walking. Sometimes a little farfetched but it's in keeping with the Hawke series just a little younger, good entertainment at any age. Excellent narration by John Shea, nice to keep him for 2 books so far to keep all of the characters consistent. I look forward to the next installment.

    "Nick meets Washington"

    The Time Pirate by Ted Bell was a wonderful second book in The Nick of Time Adventures. Nick McIver lives in 1940 on the small island of Greybeard Island, where the beginnings of World War II is happening. The Germans are starting the sea attack of the outer islands of Great Britain. If that is not enough to make young Nick's life an adventure, his enemy Captain Billy Blood has come back to take his revenge on Nick by kidnapping his little sister Kate and takes her to 1781. There the pirate is planning a sea attack on France with the largest pirate armada ever seen before. Now Nick must become a trader to his country in 1781 to try to help save his country in 1940's. Meeting one of the greatest Americans of the time General George Washington.
    This is a great adventure story for children and adults alike. Nick learns about doing the right thing is not always the easy thing to do. John Shea does a wonderful job with the narration of this story. Giving voices to ever character, making the characters come to life. Both Nick of Time and Time Pirate are well written adventure stories that will take you right in the pages of history.
