Where to begin

The first book in a series called Infinity Ring is A Mutiny in Time by James Dashner.

History is Broken
When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste stumble upon the key to time travel – a handheld device known as the Infinity Ring – they’re swept up in a centuries-old war for the fate of humankind. Recruited by a secret society named the Hystorians, the kids learn that history has gone disastrously off course. Now it’s up to Dak, Sera, and young Hystorian Riq to travel back in time to fix the Great Breaks.

C: I loved the twist on history. James Dashner did a wonderful job staying true to history while at the exact same time messing everything up. I appreciated the originality to the typical time travel. A parent (or parents) lost in time and it is up the kids to  bring them back; however Dak, Sera, and Riq’s first and most important purpose is one that has affects beyond themselves. I am not one for books about time travel because either they are cheesy or they include unneeded additions like swear words. But this clean, original story has me anxious to read on and have history as I know it ;)!
