The world Dak and Sarah live in is very similar to our world, but there are events in history that are not quite how we remember them to be. Because the historical events in Dak and Sarah's world didn't happen as they should have, people in their work experience "Remnants" or shadows of what should have been.
There is a group of people, the Hystorians, that are keeping track of all the instances in history that didn't occur they way they should have. There is another group of people, the SQ, that want to keep history as is is. But, because events have not occurred the way they should have, natural disasters are becoming more frequent and more dangerous.
Dak's parents have developed a time travel device that can help the Hystorians fix what is wrong with historical events. This is how Dak and Sarah find themselves in 1492 trying to stop the mutiny that kept Christopher Columbus from leading the discovery of the Americas that occurred in their history.
This is a fun adventure story that middle grade readers will enjoy. It's fun to pick out the mistakes in this alternate universe. And the books in this new series link to a digital experience that readers can further explore.
