A MUTINY IN TIME (Infinity Ring #1)
by James Dashner ★★★★★
Scholastic’s next multi-platform mega-event begins here! History is broken, and three kids must travel back in time to set it right.
When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste stumble upon the secret of time travel — a hand-held device known as the Infinity Ring — they’re swept up in a centuries-long secret war for the fate of mankind. Recruited by the Hystorians, a secret society that dates back to Aristotle, the kids learn that history has gone disastrously off course. Now it’s up to Dak, Sera, and teenage Hystorian-in-training Riq to travel back in time to fix the Great Breaks . . . and to save Dak’s missing parents while they’re at it. First stop: Spain, 1492, where a sailor named Christopher Columbus is about to be thrown overboard in a deadly mutiny!
WOW! …. This was a great read. I love time-travel books and they are proving to be very popular with readers at the moment (look out vampires and zombies). This is the first book in a new series and I’m totally hooked, and will definitely be reading the others. Another great thing that kids will like, is that there is also extra interaction with this series by way of a special website.
The main characters Dak Smyth and Sera Froste, along with new friend Rik, find themselves smack bang in the middle of an exciting but dangerous task in Spain in 1492. They have been given the huge responsibility to fix history. I’m not going to give away details of the plot, because that would spoil it for all of you would-be time-travellers. But what I will say, is that these kids get involved in plenty of action as they set sail on a tall ship with Christopher Columbus.
I definitely recommend this book, it’s bound to be a hugely popular series with the kids, and I can’t wait to read the next one.
