Day of the Predator (TimeRiders #2)
Maddy Carter should have died on a plane in 2010.
Sal Vikram should have died in a fire in 2029.
But all three have been given a second chance—to work for an agency that no-one knows exists. Its purpose—to prevent time travel destroying history . . .
When Maddy mistakenly opens a time window where and when she shouldn’t have, Liam...more
I mean, it’s really not my fault though.
First off, we have some time travelling children, which are my kryptonite. And then there are dinosaurs, which turn every frown upside down. Some of the chapters are even narrated by one of the dinosaurs—which I’m slightly embarrassed to even admit.
It’s just a hodge-podge of ridiculousity and I refused to put it down. Except when there was ice cream or something good on television.
So, we sta...more
Tellement j’avais aimé le tome 1, j’attendais avec impatience ce second opus de cette longue série avec impatience mais aussi avec quelque peu d’angoisse que je vous expliquerai la raison. Donc, toutefois, faut que je vous le dise, j’ai adoré !!! C’est un livre excellent, comme toujours !
Les personnages sont toujours les mêmes, ils ne changent pas vraiment, et c’est ça que j’aime dans les séries, retrouver les personnages comme des amis qu’on voit souvent,...more
Now to discuss briefly my thoughts on time travel.
I have come up with the belief that time travel back in time is impossible. Because time travel back in time is a circular action. If you go back in time you inevitably change something - which changes the future you were already...more
When I heard that he was going to do a children's series I thought "I'm not a Teen I don't read YA books" and I have always stuck
With the principle that I don't Read YA books. But something made me break that rule, I suppose its his skill at writing characters!
Anyway, I read TR1 and loved it and thought, yup this is good, but is it a flash in the pan? NO TR2 has sho...more
While the omnipotent-all-knowing-God-like narration is something to get used to, leaving very few stones unturned, he still manages to keep me hooked as a reader with sparkling imagery and occasional moments of light, breezy humour. The description of areas are so vivid and real that you are practicall...more
I actually like this a lot better than the first book which is weird because I didn't expect to. So its basically a similar story as the first book. Maddy, Sal and Liam must save the world from those who wants to change the past/future.
I guess the one thing that I liked more about this book was the time setting. Common it was Dinosaurs! I would have been jumping up and down if I was stuck in that situation, but then I would also be totally freaked out. I also pretty much like the weird ending...more
Okej, tie posledné strany, to bolo niečo, a docvakujú mi postupne také niektoré veci, že sám neviem, čo ma bude ešte čakť v dalsich dieloch, paneboze a to ich ma byt este 7!!! Panenka skákavá!
demasiados momentos assim
Este novo livro da série é ainda melhor, em todos os aspe...more
Liam O'Connor should have died at sea in 1912. Maddy Carter should have died on a plane in 2010. Sal Vikram should have died in a fire in 2029.

When Maddy mistakenly opens a time window where and when she shouldn't have, Liam is marooned sixty-five million years ago in the hunting ground of a deadly - and until now - undiscovered spec
Day of the Predator, book 2 in the TimeRiders series is a quick and fun read. This adventure has way less time travel and back and forth then the first, but it does have....dinosaurs. This book is a far simpler book, than the first. We get only a very small amount of additional character backstory and world building. The POV's only really flop between Liam and the crew at present day.
This story is about an accident that causes our team to travel way back to dinosaur time. What changes c...more
When, I first read the back of the book, I thought this is book is, like, in every book there will be one or the other adventure. I was tempted not to read the book. But, I continued, anyways, and I actually liked the book. The way these people end up in the past and the...more
Just like its predecessor the book had that suspense, that drama, that adventure again.
The whole idea behind timeriders is very appealing. People travel back to time, or forward in time, the world history is changed and the only safe place is the timeriders HQ.
Its totally, jahully unique. It's a stroke of a genius.
Although at some points you may find that the book is a bit of a drag since there is too much tension in the HQ and in the other time. I mean who likes just so many th...more
You start to develop a connection with the characters - especially Liam and Becks (previously was Bob).
The way the creatures think is amazing - it really makes you think about their perspective.
Alex Scarrow is an amazing writer - I've read all the series and waiting to read the latest one. I wo...more

My only problem is that I have questions about the plot, the characters, the background. And no answers...
If Liam, Maddy and Sal go back and forth between two days, shouldn't they have met themselves somewhere? They are always in the same place and time!
