    I read the first book in the series back in February and I loved it. However, now that I have read Day of the Predator, the second book in the series, I can honestly say that I have not been this excited about a series for a long time. As fas as anticipation for 'the next book' goes, I can compare it to how I feel about MG Harris' Joshua Files series and how I felt about the Percy Jackson books. And with Alex Scarrow having signed a nine book deal with Puffin I am looking forward to reliving thi [...]

    "There be dinosaurs here, but not as we know them!"Welcome one and all to the second book in Alex Scarrow's Timeriders series. I sound a little more upbeat in comparison to the first novel don't I? Well I am. It's much improved. This time around Liam and his new female meat robot 'Becks' are sent forward in time to rescue a 'future' physicists, Edward Chan, who writes the first paper on theoretical time travel. Let's just say best laid plans are always prone to a mishap or two. It involves a pin [...]

    Uf, po tomto sa neda nepokracovat Naozaj neda Myslel som si ze dinosaury budu nuda Ale Alex je proste stary fičúr a Enough is enough, hor sa do trojky Preco som si ju zasa nechal v praci?!?

  • Aso

    this is so good, meskipun ada bagian yang terasa repetitif, karena konsepnya sama dengan buku yang pertama, tapi berhasil bikin saya penasaran dengan ceritanya hingga akhir, dan kalimat terakhir, O.M.G. I didn't see that coming. cap cuss buku ke-3

  • Sašenka

    Objektívne? Veľmi dobré. Tú poslednú vetu - asi tak stranu predtým som začala tušiť, že to tak je, ale akože WTF??? to čo je za koniec? Jediný môj problém s touto knihou bolo zlé načasovanie. Tesne predtýmto som čítala ešte kus namakanejšie sci-fi a nie jedno a toto bolo oproti tomu slabé. Keby som to čítala v inom poradí, asi by ma to chytilo o veľký kus viac. Takto no neužívala som si to až tak ako by sa patrilo. A priznám sa, oveľa viac sa mi páčili a zauj [...]

    Το δεύτερο βιβλίο της επιτυχημένης σειράς του Alex Scarrow, "Οι Φύλακες του Χρόνου" έχει κυκλοφορήσει εδώ και μεγάλο διάστημα από τις εκδόσεις Μεταίχμιο όμως δεν είχα καταφέρει να το διαβάσω μέχρι πρόσφατα. Λάθος! Πολύ μεγάλο λάθος! Γιατί αν με το πρώτο του βιβλίο κατάφερε να με κ [...]

    Dinot ei ole mun cuppa, mutta evoluution kautta nekin innostivat. Repiminen ja huvikseen raateleminen tietysti myös. Homma pysyy edelleen kasassa loistavasti, ja kurkittuani tulevia osia luvassa on kaikkea herkkua.Ehkä pakko ostaa englanniksi kirjastoon ja hioa tästä hemmetin hyvä vinkkaus tehdäkseen oikeutta kirjalle. On muuten nettikaupassa älyttömän halpa - vink vink.

  • Pim

    Hrozně mě mrzí, že česky další díly nevyšly, protože je to skvělá série.

  • Safiyyah

    This was the 2nd book of the series. It was incredible!!! Full of adventure of time travelling throughout history. Most chapters shifted from where but also when and which part of history do the Time Riders get themselves "temporarily" stuck in.The ending of this book has left me asking so many questions which I dont know the answer to. Absolutely thrilling!!

    Malam tadiSaya tahu kalau hari sudah larut malamDan saya tahu kalau saya tidak tidur saat itu juga, saya bakalan ngantuk berat besok di kantorTapiYA TIDAK BISA BERHENTI MEMBACA BUKU INI!!!! *histeris*Sueerrrrr deh, ceritanya seru banget.Kali ini, Maddy, Liam, dan Sal, mendapat pesan darurat dari "kalian tahu siapa". Katanya ada yang berusaha merubah sejarah dengan mencegah ditemukannya mesin waktu. Tapi bukan Waldstein si penemu mesin waktu yang mereka incar, melainkan seorang pemuda bernama Edw [...]

  • Kim Dyer

    While the novel's short chapters made this book a fast paced and easy read, I felt that it was a little weaker than the TimeRiders on the whole. It's middle section was a lot slower and it mainly flipped between the Cretaceous Period and 2001, leaving a lot less room for travelling between times.I also still have some issues with Scarrow's version of time travel. I expect this is a personal gripe as I notice this novel has a huge fan base, but it just didn't make sense to me. It looks like it's [...]

  • Michelle Madow

    I loved the first book in the Time Riders series, and the second was even better! The thing that sticks out to me in these books is how well-researched they are. When dealing with advanced scientific technology and historic details, a lot of research is needed, and Scarrow has clearly spent a lot of time making sure to get the facts straight. Not only does he get them straight, but he explains the science in a way that the average teen will understand what's going on, while also managing to not [...]

    Good wow. This book is so much better than the first one! The action is intense and relentless, the plot is fantastic and the story line is terrifying. A group of high-school students is accidentally transported back in time to 65 million years BC. They have to find a way to leave a message for the Time Riders, letting them know when they are so they can be rescued - all the while fighting for the lives against a horrific and extremely intelligent species of dinosaur.Now we've all ready Crichton [...]

  • Annabel

    Better than the last one, in places. I felt like the writing flowed a little bit better, although there was still occasional telling rather than showing. One chapter in particular comes to mind where a host is leading some kids round on a field trip, and every line of his is prefaced with: "As I'm sure you're aware" If they already know it, why tell them? It came across as artificial, but thankfully, I only noticed it this one time- can't be sure, maybe it was in other parts as well.The characte [...]

    Joskus sitä törmää nuortenkirjoihin, jotka saavat toivomaan, että aikamatkustus olisi mahdollista. Haluaisin nimittäin palata tämä kirja mukanani takaisin vuoteen 1990, jolloin kymmenvuotias minä oli rakastanut tätä kirjaa syvästi ja antaumuksella.Alex Scarrow'n "Saalistajan aika" (Buster Nordic, 2013) on Time Riders-sarjan toinen osa, jossa Liam, Maddy ja Sal jatkavat seikkailujaan yrittäen korjata aikamatkailun aiheuttamia vääristymiä historiassa ja tulevaisuudessa. Apunaan hei [...]

    Jangan pernah bermain-main dengan waktu. Peringatan ini terus menerus disuarakan oleh banyak tokoh besar, mulai dari Dumbledore hingga Waldstein. Yang disebut terakhir tadi adalah sang penemu mesin perjalanan waktu dalam seri Time Riders karya Alex Scarrow ini. Si penemu berbalik menjadi penentang karena dia telah melihat sendiri neraka dengan mesin waktu yang telah diciptakannya itu. Berkat kampanyenya yang tak kenal, pada tahun 2050, Hukum Internasional telah melarang dengan tegas dilakukannya [...]

    3.5 StarsDay 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 can [...]

  • Hobby

    Gooossshh it's a long time since I found series that really good ( I guess since Harry Potter, only a few fantasy stories that make me hardly put-down the book until it's finished, that regret it why the adventure come to the end) I really-really hope the Indonesian publisher will continue release the whole series, 'coz is so aadicted to find-out more where the adventure will taking the three teenager of Time Riders !!HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR FANTASY-MANIA !! more about this book, just check my c [...]

It is up to Liam to save Edward Chan and get him back to the present where he can create his thesis statement but the predators wont be willing to let them go [...]

  • WhyNN ~

    meskipun masih banyak lubang yang terjadi di buku ini berkenaan dengan konsep perjalanan waktunya saya akui bahwa buku ini menarik untuk diikuti, dengan gaya bercerita yang ringan (dan terjemahan yang sedikit terburu-buru) rasanya nggak rela untuk tidak melanjutkan seri ini dan membaca misteri dibalik apa yang terjadi di buku2 sebelumnyaw, sebagian nama mengingatkan dengan Joshua Files >.< dan penulis secara tidak sadar memasukkan pendapat pribadinya tanpa alasan yang jelas disini :D

  • Anita Pogorzelska

    I'm not gonna lie, this was a pretty good book. The plot was excellent, the plot twists were great, and it was all in all quite a hooker. Based on the reviews and the first two books, I feel like this series gets better with every book. Well, the second was certainly better than the first. The only thing I would have liked that would have gotten this book a 5th star is better character development. The characters were still a bit dry. Other than that I highly recommend it.

  • Sean

    WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST READ. I won't spoil, but the ending. It has been on my mind a couple of times, but still, this is a surprise Wow. I love how they show the different futures, it's really cool and makes me think about the present world a lot, because it's pretty shit. BUT REALLY, THE END!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!So I really recommend this book, even if you haven't read the first book, GO READ IT!

  • Kahlan23

    okej,takže je to za mnou.ja si pekne nadávam,že som sa vôbec takú dlhú dobu vyhýbala týmto knihám,ani neviem prečo. rovnako skvelé ako jednotka.záver som čakala bo ja blbá som si to prečítala v komentoch či kde tu ešte v čase keď som nad knihami nerozmýšľala. no aj tak som sa po konci mala chuť smiať jak blázon,bo zmysel to dáva a ja chcem pokračovanie =D

  • Lucas Darathy

    The writing was so amateurish and lazy, I was extremely disappointed. The characters don't talk like real people, it's like they're all robots which is ironic, because the robots are actually the best characters. They stand out as way more real than the "real" people.Plot was weak and the twist was CLICHÉ!!!

  • ala'

    حبكاتي المفضلة هي السفر عبر الزمن و اثره على الكوكب .المشكلة انه تركني مع اسئلة كتير حولين الفلسفة . اهمها : ليش لازم الابطال ينقذوا خط زمني ابله تماما و قادم على مجاعات ومار ونهايات للعالم . بالمرة مو منطقي !

  • Karen

    love this book, i was always fascinated in dinosaurs and to have an author give us a dinosaurs perspective through Broken Claw was such a unique trait in a book! loved it, loved it! can't wait for more!!

  • Shane Phillips

    I found this story very interesting especially the ending. However, after reading the first 2 books they have the same basic story in both. The traveler gets stuck and has to make a hidden message to get home. Is this the same in all the books? I certainly hope not.

  • Niina

    Tämän kirjan takia jäi yöunet vähiin ja ajoin kerran bussipysäkkini ohi. Toimii.

  • Lenka

    V skutočnosti 4,5* Výborná kniha, niektorým veciam z konca trochu nerozumiem, ale snáď sa ešte vysvetlia v ďalších dieloch. Dinosaury skvelí, už sa teším na Robina Hooda :)
