The Last Beginning – Lauren James

Time travel seems to be flavour of the month, if recent novels are anything to go by – Ben Elton, Jolast-beginninghn Boyne and Stephen King all have recent books dealing with changing the world through time travel.

James’ novel deals with the same theme – changing key events through knowledge acquired through tweaking time.

The complexities of how someone can change their future by changing their past that they didn’t know existed was a little beyond me at times. I’m sure students will find the ‘doomed romance’ and the LGTB themes of interest.



All our yesterdays by Cristin Terrill





Wow, loved¬†this from the first page – but I am a huge dystopian fan and this ticked all the boxes – action adventure, science fiction, time travel, teenage relationships, meglomania, betrayal and espionage thriller…you name it, this has it.

Em is trapped in a prison cell, beaten and tortured in the search for a vital piece of information. In the next cell is Finn, her friend and only chance for security. As she discovers a new clue to help her escape, she realises that she herself had placed the clue in the very spot, the LAST TIME she was in this cell, in another time paradox….

A little brutal in places, but a fast-paced and a sometimes complicated read. Well worth the effort.




TimeRiders – Alex Scarrow

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 2029.

They are recruited by an agency that no one knows exists, with only one purpose – to fix broken history. Because time travel is here, and there are those who would go back in time and change the past. That’s why the TimeRiders exist: to protect us. To stop time travel from destroying the world…
