A mutiny in time paperback

"A Mutiny in Time features tight plotting, snappy dialogue and a judicious balance of humor and suspense. . . . The story moves at a breathless pace."
— Rick Riordan, New York Times Book Review

When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste discover the key to time travel — the Infinity Ring — they're swept up in a centuries-long secret war for the fate of mankind. Recruited by the Hystorians, a secret society that dates back to Aristotle, the kids learn that history has gone disastrously off course — and it's up to them to fix it, with the help of teenage Hystorian-in-training Riq. First stop: Spain, 1492, where a sailor named Christopher Columbus is about to be thrown overboard in a deadly mutiny.

The book comes packaged with a full-color, two-sided Hystorian's Guide, your key to unlocking the next adventure, which continues with the exciting Infinity Ring game.

Follow the map, study the Guide, and save history!
