TimeRiders: The Doomsday Code

( 61 )

Overview

When a British computer hacker finds his name coded into a centuries-old manuscript, TimeRider Maddy recognizes it as the same message she had also been sent.

But as a war begins to brew between King Richard and his brother John, Liam unwittingly takes on the role of the Sheriff of Nottingham and discovers that the mythical Robin ...

Overview

When a British computer hacker finds his name coded into a centuries-old manuscript, TimeRider Maddy recognizes it as the same message she had also been sent. Sure it must be communication from other TimeRiders agents, she sends Liam and the two support units back to Robin Hood's time to search for the fabled document-possibly the Holy Grail. But as a war begins to brew between King Richard and his brother John, Liam unwittingly takes on the role of the Sheriff of Nottingham and discovers that the mythical Robin Hood may have been another support unit all along. This action-packed reimagining of the Robin Hood legend, weaving elements of religion, alternative history, and time-travel ethics perfect for fans of The DaVinci Code, is a page-turner both old and new fans won't want to miss.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Magi Evans
In England in 1994, Adam Lewis translates and publishes one line of a previously undecipherable document. In 2001 New York, a time wave occurs, and Maddy, Liam, and Sal must take action to correct the change in history caused by Adam's translation. The three young people are Time Riders, monitoring history and going back in time to fix whatever changed it. In this third volume of the "Time Riders" series, Liam takes their two biosupport units, Bob and Becks, to England in the time of the Crusades. The document Adam translated has ties to the Holy Grail, a parchment supposedly discovered by Richard the Lionheart during the Crusades, and subsequently brought to England. Liam, Bob and Becks arrive in Nottingham just after the Grail was stolen by a seemingly indestructible man known as The Hood, a member of a band of bandits led by James Locke. Nottingham is in turmoil, and it appears that a peasant revolt is what will cause the change in the historical timeline. Liam takes over as sheriff in order to prevent the rebellion, while searching for the Grail in order to save the life of King Richard's brother, John, who is destined to become King after Richard's death. Liam discovers that Locke and the Hood are also time travelers, who want to use the Grail to change their own timeline, when Earth will be ruined by climate change. Kidnappings, swashbuckling sword fights, and castle sieges entertain, but readers also get an interesting history lesson. The Time Riders display just the right amount of bravery and insecurity over the awesome responsibility of determining which actions will fix the timeline or make it worse, a conundrum that fans of time travel stories have enjoyed since H. G. Wells. This is a worthy addition to the genre. Reviewer: Magi Evans

    Exciting concept!

    This was a great book. One of those that you just don't want to put down. It's an easy read and has a fun and different concept. The three main characters are rescued from the past and future and from certain death. They are given the choice to join the Time Riders, or be abandoned to their fate. The Time Riders are tasked with protecting the present, past and future from rouge users of the time machine from going back to alter history.

    I would reccomend this to anyone that is interested in time travel and alternate universes. Currently, Barnes and Noble seems to only have the first in this series...I'm really hoping that they plan to acquire the next two books and any that follow!

    Reviewed by Jennifer Rummel for Teens Read Too

    Three teens, all from different time periods, have the same man visit them asking them the same question: Do you want to die, or do you want to live a strange but helpful life? Each choose to live. They come together as Time Riders, a group of people who live days over and over again looking for any significant changes in the world. Liam, Maddy, Sal, and their robot, Bob, are responsible for watching the world on September 11, 2001. They're not allowed to do anything, as it will change the entire history of the world. When they notice something amiss, Liam and Sal travel back in time for a reconnaissance mission. While their time is informative, they miss the window of opportunity to return. Stuck in the past, they need to learn everything they can to change the future and set the world back to normal. Back in the present day, Maddy is dealing with her own troubles. Liam and Sal's travels to the past changed their world, creating grave danger. Can the team set the world to rights? The changes in both time and perspective intensify the situations in TIME RIDERS, creating a fast-paced read you won't want to put down. This story provides lots of action, lots of danger, and lots of plot twists.

    This story had a lot of suspense with just enough action to keep the pages turning. I loved the parts when they are being chased by humans who have been turned into flesh-eating creatures. Definitely worth the read. Teen+

    Liam, Sal and Maddy are saved, but are met by another fate. They must keep their identities hidden. No one knows them, no one can see them and they are just like ghost. Foster takes them to his secret lair in New York. Foster shows them the lair, but they are let down because how the lair looks. There were old cable wires and dim lights. Later on Foster tells them the world needs their help. A madman named Professor Haas and his helper Mr. Kramer are trying to take over the world in another parallel universe by using the Nazi’s Army. (“A shift is the result of time being disturbed” Foster said). (20).Luckily they are not alone. They meet a super android named B.O.B, who helps them on their mission to save the world.

    This book had a true excitement to it. The whole purpose of the book has true meaning. It leaves you turning pages with interest and motivation to read all day long. The author did an excellent job writing this book. Liam is a very brave boy. Sal is the young one, who needs guidance. Maddy is the most technologically inclined of the three. Bob is hilarious and he goes right to your heart. It was very touching.
