The Eternal War (Timeriders)by Alex Scarrow
Synopses & Reviews
“A multi-world adventure starring a band of heroes that readers will want to join.” —Kirkus Reviews, of The Twinning Project
In this stand-alone sequel to The Twinning Project, thirteen-year-old twins Tom and Eddie, aware that their homes are at risk, have been waiting for a chance to save their planets. The sudden appearance of an alien both in Toms school lunchroom and on Eddies baseball field tells them that now is the time. The stakes are high, and sinister U.S. government agents want their piece of the pie. Can Tom and Eddie persuade the alien council to preserve their worlds, or will both troubled planets just go up in smoke? Middle grade space adventure? Check. Aliens who quote Mark Twain? Check. Suspense? Check. Blast off!
The course of American history is at stake when the Abraham Lincoln follows the TimeRiders into modern day.
History will never be the same when Abraham Lincoln follows the TimeRiders into modern day New York
Identical twins Tom and Eddie, living on different planets, regroup with friends to develop the special powers that will help them resist alien and government attempts to destroy both Earths.
Continuing the heart-pounding, time-bending action of the TimeRiders series, The Eternal War brings readers back to a pivotal time period in American history: the Civil War. Only this alternate history is one where a young Abraham Lincoln has somehow followed Liam into the present from 1831, and the entire course of American history has changed. If the TimeRiders can't return Lincoln to the past, the country could be trapped in a dangerous state of never-ending civil war. Can Maddy persuade two colonels on either side of no man's land to cease fire long enough to save the future?
