      Very helpful



      Die, or save the planet? Your choice.

      This was a spur of the moment purchase on a bookshop's 3 for 2 offer. I have to say it was not what I expected, but not in a bad way. I suppose the front cover deceived me into thinking that spaceships and aliens would be involved. Incidentally, the spaceship looking thing on the front cover turns out to be something else completely!

      Three people, who live in different eras of Earth's history, are rescued from their impending demise and put to work correcting the planet's corrupted timeline. Of course, things are not quite as simple as that, because any inadvertent interference that they create in the past, inevitably changes things for them in the future. Mind boggling stuff!

      I think this is where the Time Riders is well written. It could very easily have been overly confusing in an attempt to be too 'clever'. I personally found that it could have been slightly more complex, however, it was still an enjoyable read and I recommend it as an exhilarating book to take on holiday.

      The Time Riders could easily be open to a sequel, because the possibilities of time travel are endless, so should we watch this space? I think so.
