Young Adult Science Fiction
History has been changed and this leaves breaks or missing
pieces in time that need to be fixed. Dak's parents are
scientists trying to create a time machine called The
Infinity Ring. When a group of Historians discover Dak's
friend Sera completed the time machine, they break into
their lab and kidnap the two kids. The Historians demand
that Dak and Sera with the help of a Historian teenager
named Riq, go back in time and correct the Remnants to make
history right again.
Christopher Columbus is not recognized for discovering
America. Alexander the Great never became King because he
was assassinated in an attempt for someone else to take his
place as king. History needs to be corrected and it's up
to three kids to do it.
With the help of The Infinity Ring they go back in time to
jump aboard the Santa Maria and help save Christopher
Columbus from being thrown off the ship by two brothers who
have planned a mutiny. They must hide the fact that they
are from the future to protect themselves as well as
history. Will Dak, Sera, and Riq complete their mission
and correct the breaks in history or will they get stuck in
another time and not be able to find their way back?
A MUTINY IN TIME is the first book in the Infinity Ring
series, a middle grade adventure story for children. There
will be seven books in this series with each story written
by a different popular YA author. The beginning of A MUTINY
IN TIME starts off slow but as soon as The Infinity Ring is
in working order, the action begins!
I enjoyed the twist on history and the children needing to
fix it. The DQ is never properly explained but from
comments made by the kids it seems to be a Big Brother type
of government that should not exist but does because of the
history mistakes in time.
Written for ages 8 and up, I would recommend A MUTINY IN
TIME for ages 11 and up because of the more complicated
vocabulary that a younger child may not understand. Due to
its educational styled backstory, I can definitely see this
book as a teacher's favorite for the classroom. Overall A
MUTINY IN TIME is a fun adventure that children are sure to
Time has gone wrong, and best friends Dak Smyth and Sera
Froste, together with the young Hystorian Riq, must use the
infinity ring to travel back to one of the Great Breaks--a
mutiny on the Santa MariÂ´a--to correct history and defeat
