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!

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+

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.

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.
