Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Book One in the TimeRiders series, read by Trevor White.
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 2029. 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...

If you’ve read my other reviews you’ll know I’m a pretty level-headed reader so I don’t say this lightly…OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS BOOK!!
Seriously, BUY THIS BOOK IMMEDIATELY!!
I haven’t been this enchanted with a series since I first picked up Harry Potter!
TimeRiders utilise illegal time travel technology, sent from our future, in order to restore the correct history when nefarious travellers make changes.
I’ve had my eye on TimeRiders for a while as a big fan of time travel stories and I was thrilled to finally have the audiobooks available.
The lore/mythology of the time travel was light but very clever and enjoyable. The structure of the story – multiple POVs in both the past and present – shows the reader ‘butterfly effects’ in real-time which is great fun. It also packs the books with action as the all the members of the TimeRiders team must work to battle the devastating effects of altered history in both the past and present.
Book one jumped went into the genres’ big guns – Hitler, JFK and even 9/11. If you think you’ve seen that all before, trust me, TimeRiders’ approach was fresh and original (also respectful!).
I’ve torn through the first four available books in a giddy rush and I’ve raved about the TimeRiders series to anyone who would listen.
I cannot recommend TimeRiders strongly enough to readers of all ages.
They are also amazing value for such lengthy books so you really can’t go wrong!
