A must read in this series with lots of shocking information about the TimeRiders and their purpose in their job of correcting time.
Fans of the Time Riders series have surely dying learn the secrets of the Time Riders’ origins and “The Shadow City” finally gives us a detailed story about the mysterious agency.
Unfortunately, I was spoiled on some of the big reveals in this entry but this entry was still incredibly enjoyable and even a little shocking. If you’ve been bugged by some logic or continuity errors in the books so far, or have been irritated by some dropped threads and unexplained phenomena – this is the book for you!
Told in large portions of external POVs that jump throughout the timeline of the whole series to date we finally get some answers and some unexpected twists.
After reading “City of Shadows” I’ll think you’ll be as torn as me about whether to go back and re-read the earlier books with this new perspective or charge onto the remaining two books, eager to see how the changed Time Riders face their new roles!
This book deviates from previous stories because it doesn’t seem to have a major historical/time contamination plot at the core of the story. For a majority of the book we are dealing with the origins of, and changes in, the Time Riders. As a fan I was thrilled by this alone.
Then just when I least expected it, another ingenious domino set of events was triggered that would forever change the future of humanity!
So on top of the major fan-service we still got a clever time-travel conundrum for our heroes to wade into. It was only a short portion of the book but still clever and fun in the trademark Scarrow way.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough for fans and I’m so excited to see where the books go after this game changer!
