Timebomb by Scott K. Andrews
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A slick little sci-fi with all the hallmarks of a great thriller. Quick chapters, changing view points, endless action, cliffhangers and a whole bundle of mysteries to solve. Three teenagers from different eras and backgrounds discover the ability to time travel, but not how to control it. Who is an enemy, who can be trusted and even the current date and location seem to change with baffling regularity. An excellent, fast and exciting read beginning a new trilogy from an accomplished author.

If you like Scott K. Andrews you might also like to read books by James Patterson, Lauren Oliver and Jennifer Lawrence.

Synopsis

Timebomb by Scott K. Andrews

Perfect for fans of Alex Scarrow and Michael Grant, this is the first in an incredible new time-travel trilogy by the author of The Afterblight Chronicles: School's Out Forever. New York City, 2141: Yojana Patel throws herself off a skyscraper, but never hits the ground. Cornwall, 1640: gentle young Dora Predennick, newly come to Sweetclover Hall to work, discovers a badly-burnt woman at the bottom of a flight of stairs. When she reaches out to comfort the dying woman, she's flung through time. On a rainy night in present-day Cornwall, seventeen-year-old Kaz Cecka sneaks into the long-abandoned Sweetclover Hall, in search of a dry place to sleep. Instead he finds a frightened housemaid who believes Charles I is king and an angry girl who claims to come from the future. Thrust into the centre of a war that spans millennia, Dora, Kaz and Jana must learn to harness powers they barely understand to escape not only villainous Lord Sweetclover but the forces of a fanatical army...all the while staying one step ahead of a mysterious woman known only as Quil
