User Summary: A mad scientist from the past has created a time-travelling device and is planning to use it to wreak havoc on mankind. Together with your friend Gloria, you must hop across time periods looking for a way to escape with your lives (and probably foil the scientist's plans).
Guillermo's Thoughts: This book is an improvement over the author's previous entry in the series (New Journey to the Center of the Earth). The writing is more lively and coherent than is the case in that book (though it can also be cringe-inducing at times). The story, which is reminiscent of both The Time Raider and Race into the Past from the Twistaplot series, has great pacing. Fortunately, there is a good deal of creativity put into developing both the past and future settings, and cliches are kept to a minimum. My only real complaint is that the outcomes of reader's choices are quite random. In spite of this, the book makes for an entertaining, engaging read. Recommended.
