Yes, if they like time travel stories.
Probably the part where the twins still existed when their mother was dead.
There were so many, but one was when they realized that the 3 men weren't dead, and they could no longer charge the kids with murder.
Another was whenever the albino girl showed up, she'd talk in that eerie voice.
The ending. It left it open to where I'm anxious to see what happens in the next book!
Much better than I thought it would be, and the narrator was pretty good too.
I love this book. It is YA so appropriate for age over 14, but my 10 year-old daughter loved it.
The story involves time travel which I loved immensely.
Roberto Scarlet is a great reader and performs the different parts brilliantly.
I loved the whole book and can't wait to read part 2.
If you love thrillers, this is a must read.
The Travellers Secret by Jan Eira is book one of The Travellers Series. My first question after this book was 'when is the next book out??'
It starts with four teenagers hanging out before something unexpected happens leading the four youngsters on a journey to try and destroy Enoxadin a pharmaceutical drug that will prevent heart attacks. This drug sounds great until it interacts with a new virus that starts to kill the earths population So its up to the future and the past to come together to prevent Enoxadin from being manufactured. Can they do it?
I listened to this book on audio and Roberto Scarlato does an amazing job on bringing the characters of the story to life, they all have their own distinctive voices that makes it easier for you to know who is who, especially when they meet their future selves. He also adds depth to the book that I don't think would be there without him narrating the story. So if you have a chance pick up the audio version of this book. You won't regret it, I promise.
This is a fast paced book with many twists and turns that will you on the edge of your seat. I gasped out loud many times during this book, especially with events near the end. I have to go now and I desperately need to find out about book two and find out what happens next.
