Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of TimeRiders: The Doomsday Code, the third book in the TimeRiders series, read by Trevor White.

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 2026. 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...

In 1993 British computer hacker Adam Lewis finds his name in a coded manuscript that is almost one thousand years old. How did Adam's name get in there... and why? Confronted by Adam in 2001, the TimeRiders travel back to Sherwood Forest in 1193 to discover the origins of the ancient message. But when a strange hooded man appears interested in the same thing, they begin to wonder what terrible threat this cryptic link from the past holds for the future...

A Slower Entry in the Series

For anyone who has read my gushing reviews of TimeRiders Book 1 and 2, let me prove I am not completely biased by saying Book 3: Doomsday Code was weak compared to the first two in terms of its standalone plot.

The setting of medieval England and exploration of the ‘robin hood’ mythology was cute but it definitely lacked the peril and punch of the first two
.
Where Doomsday Code shone though was delving a little deeper into the growing mystery of the whole series. Each book has supplied some new information about the origin of the TimeRiders, the creators of time travel and the bleak future where time travel has been invented and is seen as humanities only hope. This story cemented some suspicions and frame, what I hope, will be some really meaty future conflicts in the series.

Some readers might be disappointed then with the lack of resolution to major plot elements in the book but as this is only Book 3 of a so far stellar 8 book series; I’m prepared to forgive it.

If you’re already on the TimeRiders journey, definitely pick up Book 3 but be prepared to lose a little momentum in the so far, action-packed series. It’s not entirely a bad thing and the series continues to be excellent value.

It’s a good book but…

It’s a good book but it is a bit unrealistic in different ways. Opinion needed.

The holy grail ! What ever next?

I'm starting to see a darker side to these stories but it seems to have been worked well into the story. The text in this book seems to drag in places, but please do carry on with the story it's worth it in the end. Liam and Maddy are beginning to feel the strain of working for unknown people and poor Sal is left wondering what's going on. The team get between King Richard and Prince John and Maddy finds information stored in Brecca's hard drive has been locked by "a higher authority ". Where will it all lead to???
