In the first book Peter gets left behind in 1763 and Kate returns home. Tar Man (the villain) stows away on the time machine and takes the 21st century by storm. I liked the multiple story lines, I think it prevents me from getting too bored. Time travel story lines make my head spin though and I'm interested to see if the author can come up with a satisfying conclusion.

Only slightly related to the book-I think it's funny when critics vastly overpraise these books. It seems like critics (or maybe the editors choosing quotes) were falling all over themselves to compare this to Harry Potter. Even going as far as to say "may very well give J.K. Rowling a run for her money" Uhhh, it hasn't and it probably won't.
