Alex Scarrow has delivered another great story although some of the elements are becoming inevitably formulaic.
The excellent performance by Trevor White was, however, somewhat ruined in the first chapter by a musical soundtrack which made it impossible to hear the dialogue. I think someone has messed up in the post production department and needs a good telling off. Here's hoping the future productions aren't similarly marred. In my opinion there is no place for any music or sound effects in an audiobook in any case and this was certainly one instance where they should have left well alone.

was totally gripped with this book one of the best was gutted when it ended
I was instantly hooked on TimeRiders from chapter one and I plunged immediately into book two, desperate for more!
The Day of the Predator plot follows a similar action-packed formula as book 1 – the TimeRiders are split between past and present to deal with both the causes and consequences of a drastically altered timeline.
Only now they are dealing with dinosaurs!
The action is constant in both the past and the present and I was riveted.
What I loved most, though, was Book 2 having the opportunity to flesh out the world of the TimeRiders further. I loved the lore of the time travel and Day of the Predator gave new insights and twists as well as set up some plot threads that will carry through the series.
Honestly, all I can do as this point is continue to rave manically about my love for the TimeRiders series so I'll wrap it up.
If you loved book one, then I can’t believe you haven’t just bought this already!
If you were somehow…unbelievably...lukewarm on Book 1, well I urge you to still give Day of the Predator a go since the world and series is given roots that will carry through in this instalment.
I strongly recommend Time Riders: Day of the Predator for readers of all ages.
I’ll also point out the length continues to be excellent value for money!
