He's a novice time traveler in a big universe.
Ben just wants time with the scientist's daughter who got him into this, but when he's rooked into competing in a chronothon - an Amazing Race through time - getting the girl means he'll need to make the finish line. When he finds out this competition is more than just a sprint through history, winning takes a back seat to surviving. To save the people he loves, he'll have to conquer the real dangers hidden in the shadows of the chronothon.
The world of time travelers expands in this next installment of the In Times Like These series. Fans of book one will find more to love, but new listeners can jump right in and enjoy this stand-alone story. Expect action, adventure, and romance on this journey through past and future. Fresh dangers will arise for Ben and company in a quest for the finish line, where failure to keep up will cost more than just a shot at glory - it could mean the end for them all.

Compelling adventure story
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I'm a big fan of the author, and loved The Chronothon when it was published as an ebook. It's very clever - a young man gets tricked into taking part in a deadly race through different periods in time. The action follows him and his fellow competitors. Terrific action sequences and some clever sub-plots.
The narrator is absolutely perfect for this novel - a great voice,and he reads with at the right tempo inflection for every line in each scene. A very hard job, done exceptionally well.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Chronothon?
I really enjoy the extracts from Quickly's journal at the start of each chapter. There are some terrific action sequences, but also some clever sub-plots that play out really well.
Have you listened to any of Neil Hellegers’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Not familiar with the narrator's other work, but this one is excellent.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Too long for one sitting. Excellent value!
Any additional comments?

this wasn't a good book, it was an awesome one
let me explain you why is this book in my opinion "awesome"
-it exploits time travel in a brilliant, intelligent and interesting way.
-it explains everything (theories, bases, places, situations, feelings) in a perfectly understandable way, as well as subtle.
-it makes a mix of adventure / science fiction / love / scary / fast phased story
-it makes it impossible to stop reading / listening to the story
-it makes every situation and every achievement real or possible to happen
-it hides a few in between the lines jokes that will definitely make you laugh
-it creates realistic and complex places, well detailed and easily imaginable
-characters are well built
-even dough this is the second book, its perfectly understandable and enjoyable without reading the first book
-most of the futuristic inventions that appear in this book are actually projects being developed nowadays
-the principal characters are mostly in their twentysomthigs but this definitely doesn't mean it can be enjoyed by a younger older audience.
-it will leave you wanting for more
-it concludes the story completely, but beautifully connects with the next book
3rd book is coming out in a few months or it has already out, depending on when you read this, so you won't have to wait long to know what happens next
hope this helps, and hope you buy this book, we need more authors as great as Nathan Van Coops

I didn't think I was going to be able to get into this, but by the last third, I was sitting in the driveway not wanting to turn it off. Recommended.
