Time Riders: The Pirate kings

By: Alex Scarrow
Location: FIC SCA
Genre: Time travel- History
Series: Time Riders

I love books that combine history with fiction. London's fire and Piracy spiced up into a riveting novel that informs while it entrances- how good is that!! Go the TimeRider series!!!

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...Relocated to Victorian London, the TimeRiders joy-ride back to 1666 to witness the Great Fire of London. In the ensuing chaos, Liam and their newest recruit, Rashim, find themselves trapped between the fire and the Thames. They escape on board a river boat, only to be confronted by an unscrupulous captain with his heart set on treasures of the high seas -
can Liam and Rashim survive the bloodthirsty and barbaric age of piracy long enough to be rescued?
