The Newest Best Books For Teens with Time Travel

 

Isn’t time travel cool?

Some of my favorite books are about time travel. There are a lot of good ones out there…as well as some not so good ones. The problem usually lies in the rules of time travel. Stuff like “don’t run into your old self, or you could cause the TSC (time-space-continuum) to implode!” Hermione and Harry did it pretty well, and so do the characters in some of the recent books for teens with time travel.

The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig

The sequel to the acclaimed young adult time travel novel The Girl from Everywhere. Nix continues to journey aboard her father’s time-traveling ship, but now it’s time for her to take the helm. After learning that she will lose her true love, Kash, she sails to a mythical utopia with the hopes of learning to manipulate time. But nothing is what it seems in a land that is in constant change, not even her relationship with Kash. A great read for fans of Rachel Hartman, Rae Carson, and Outlander.

What do readers say?

“I received my copy day before yesterday in the mail and could not put it down. Fantastic follow-up to The Girl From Everywhere. Nix is such a carefully drawn three-dimensional character – she simply comes alive on the pages. I won’t spoil the plot and resolution; suffice it to say, it’s earned and satisfying. Well done!”DHY, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

A Flight in Time: A Time Travel Novel (The Thief in Time Series Book 2) by Cidney Swanson

An intense fear of flying is part of what keeps Jillian from leaving her business major and going to culinary school in Europe. The other part is her parents. Neither will stop her after she travels to 1908 to meet Wilber, and the handsome Everett Write, who left his privileged life to construct flying contraptions. After he claims that they’ve met before and she realizes that she’s falling for him, she must grapple with a heartbreaking decision that could possibly unravel history itself!

What do readers say?

“Excellent book and gorgeous cover! I loved all the twists and turns – it kept me guessing even though I had an idea where it was heading. I liked that Jillian got over her fear in what might be the most creative way possible. Everett’s fascination with all things 21st century was really funny. Jillian and Everett are really sweet together.”Karen, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs

Before Miss Peregrine, there was the stories of the Peculiar. Tales about wealthy cannibals, a fork-tongued princess, and more can be found to also reveal hidden information about the peculiar world, including clues to the locations of time loops. This companion to the #1 bestseller and movie reveals the stories collected and annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of the Miss Peregrine school and scholar of all things peculiar.

What do readers say?

This was an excellent read for wrapping up the Peculiars series (to this point). A bit creation story, a bit history, these tales add another level of depth and understanding to the characters we’ve met so far in Riggs’ peculiardom.Betts1257, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

The Lord of Dreams by C. J. Brightley

Claire’s momentary wish to be “the hero” gets her more than she wished for. Instead of becoming the center of attention like she really wants, she gets a the terrifying Fae king insisting that she plays hero to an imprisoned fairy, while facing unimaginable dangers and challenges along the way. But the dreams and rescue lead to something much bigger-the king’s wild quest to end the half-century war in Faerie.

What do readers say?

“I started reading this night, and simply couldn’t put it down until I was finished! Claire is a great protagonist – human and fallible, but always determined to keep trying and do the right thing. Her journey, from ordinary child to decidedly extraordinary woman, is incredibly satisfying. So, too, is her growing understanding of who, exactly, the mysterious Lord of Dreams is. Besides the big things, there are just all sorts of small details I adore: Claire’s relationship with her family, actions that have real consequences, and, as befits a book about the Lord of Dreams, complex interweavings of dreams which make a whole lot more sense in hindsight! All in all, I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who, like me, grew up with the desire to be the hero of their own story.”Heather, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Collide by Michelle Madow

Instead of dying when shot at the Halloween dance, Anna instead wakes up one week earlier, in a parallel universe where her mom didn’t die six months ago in a terrible car crash.  But everything else is different as well, including her school grades, friends, and even her boyfriend. The one thing that hasn’t changed is that in the next week, she will still have to face the shooting at the dance. Can she stop it? And will anyone possibly believer her long enough to help?

What do readers say?

“I really enjoyed this book. It’s the first piece I’ve read by this author and I can definitely say I will read more. The writing flowed and kept you gripped. I read the book over two nights, reading until my eyes went blurry. The characters were well fleshed out. The story was original and you didn’t know what was going to happen next. It kept me gripped right until the end and the author left things open for more. We don’t know exactly what the outcome is. It’s not a cliffhanger, more that it is up to yourself to decide. I’d love to see another book taking the story further but as a whole, it was an excellent young adult read.”Amanda Evans, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Wayfarer (Volume 2) (Passenger) by Alexandra Bracken

What would you do if one day you are suddenly both miles and years from your home? That’s what happened to Etta, who is now stranded, unable to save her mother, and cut off from her love Nicholas. Not to mention her normal time. When the leader of a group of renegade travelers turns out to be her father, everything comes into question as she tries to figure out where she stands. And as Nicholas tries to help, he discovers an ancient power that could eliminate the timeline altogether. This is the thrilling conclusion to the Passenger young adult time travel series.

What do readers say?

This book was amazing. I didn’t think I would like it more than passenger, but I did. Super satisfying end to the series and I couldn’t be happier how it ended. All the visits in history were great and those visits didn’t seem like “let’s just take the characters here for fun!” Loved it all and enjoyed all the intricate twists that made this story.Nashvilleash, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Invidious: A Dark Paranormal Romance (The Marked Book 2) by Bianca Scardoni

And will she find out who she really is?

What do readers say?

“Book 2 definitely lived up to the first and was a great continuation of the story. I know it’s considered YA, but I’m 27 and couldn’t put it down (just like the first). I found myself up reading on my Kindle Paperwhite until 3am just to finish! I highly recommend this book!!!”Alyssa Wheeler, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Ancient Guardians: The Reckoning (Ancient Guardian Series, Book 4) by S.L. Morgan

Book 4 in the Ancient Guardian young adult time travel series.

If The Guardians are up to the task, they will have to trust the one person that they have vowed to protect for generations.

What do readers say?

“Reckoning is the 4th book in the Ancient Guardian Series and the best was saved for last! I have enjoyed this whole series. I have re-read the first books numerous times with eager anticipation for the release of book 4. Book 4 did not disappoint. I am truly hoping that maybe an offspring of the books will occur like having a series of books about Lady Jacinda.”TA Arnold, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Elementals: The Wrath of the Fury by Michelle Madow

The second book on this list by Michelle Madow, this is a unique short story that takes place in the Elementals universe. It involves new characters, and a witch that discovers an unknown power, as well as an ancient civilization that searches to destroy her kind. It all happens on the night of the arrival of the Olympian Comet. Perhaps one of the neatest things about this book is that at the end, there’s an offer for you to get the first book in the Elementals series for free!

What do readers say?

The story of Sydney, Garrett and Kayla fits perfectly with the Elementals Series. It’s in line with book one, yet set in Vegas with a similar scene. As soon as the action started, I couldn’t tear my eyes away. Michelle wrote The Wrath of the Fury with such precise detail, it left me breathless with anticipation. I would love to see how their story progressed. Hopefully, this short story will turn into a spin-off of her highly acclaimed Elemental Series. If you haven’t read it, I firmly recommend it. Each book will leave you wanting more! Another 5 stars!Angela, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Outpost in Time (The After Cilmeri Series Book 13) by Sarah Woodbury

Book 13 in The After Cilmeri series. In 1294, the Irish, Danish and English are at war. David hopes for a treaty, but some of the lords would rather battle it out in the field. The Parliament meeting falls apart, and David is caught in a conspiracy that places him, his family, and the future of Ireland all at stake.

What do readers say?

“In my search for something to fill my need, since i finished Outlander, This series is it I have read all 11 books, fell in love with all the characters, the history is correct and explained even though the characters are changing it in their timeline. I recommend starting with Daughter of Time. They are quick reads being 300 pages or so, instead of the 1000-1300 pages of Outlander, but is just as action packed and lovely. Can’t wait for #12!”Carol Hollitsch, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

The Newest Best Books For Teens with Aliens

 

Scifi books with aliens get me excited.

All too often the fantasy books that I read have characters with sensational powers that never seem to show their full potential. Aliens, on the other hand, typically have amazing abilities that can and will cripple us, and make us ask for them to just end it quickly and painlessly. Then in the end, the heroes pull off the impossible and save the day. It always makes me smile and hope for the movie version to be just as electrifying (it never is). Here are some of the newest best books for teens with aliens.

Cassidy Jones and the Eternal Flame (Cassidy Jones Adventures Book 5) by Elise Stokes

This is book five in the Cassidy Jones young adult science fiction series. The Metal Woman is up to her tricks, and takes three people hostage. She demands to know the location of a special weapon, and she suspects that the Third Reich received the weapon from the Roman god of fire, Vulcan. Cassidy Jones decides to make things right, heading into the Seattle underground, but her quest for revenge may have a high price when it costs the life of someone that she loves.

What do readers say?

Life is getting pretty hard for Cassidy Jones. Lilly White jumps back into the series with a vengeance and kidnaps three people. Of course Cassidy and Emery come to the rescue but like always get more than they bargain for. Add to that the relationship drama between Cassidy and Jared and Emery hiding stuff from Cassidy and we get a book that hooks us till the end. The characters are slowly growing up and changing. Stokes has done an amazing job developing these characters and I can’t wait to see what happens next!Kimmy, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Alpha Class: A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Etheric Academy Book 1) by TS Paul, Michael Anderle

Teaching a bunch of teens how to be the next generation of leaders, sounds pretty safe, right? The Etheric Empire sets up an academy for training the first group of teens for leadership. Stuff like the different groups and areas in the Empire, like weapons, operations, etc. Of course, some teens can be a handful, but the teachers in Team BMW are ready for it, right? Meet team Alpha Class, and see them merge human’s and Wechselbalg in a group on their first assignment. What could go wrong?

What do readers say?

“This was an excellent side-story to the Kutherian Gambit main series. I’m really excited by what I am seeing from TS Paul. I am looking forward to the next of the stories from the academy. I am really looking forward to the start of the third cycle of stories from the Kutherian Gambit. I am on pins and needles. Best wishes to TS Paul. I’m waiting ….. not very patiently.”smalltown editor, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Opposition (A Lux Novel) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The fifth book in the Lux young adult science fiction series. Katy can’t understand why Daemon did nothing as his kind, the Luxen, came and threatened to destroy every human and hybrid on Earth. Daemon isn’t above betrayal to save the ones he loves, but sometimes it’s impossible to know who are your friends, and who are your enemies. They may have to sacrifice everything just to ensure the survival of both their friends, and mankind.

What do readers say?

I’m not a big fan of aliens but I love this series! It caught my attention in very the beginning when Katy and Daemon first met. Daemon was so arrogant, and sarcastic but loving too. Katy was so nerdy, and funny but still strong. They didn’t disappoint! The conclusion to this wonderful series was (as usual) heart-wrenching, action-packed, romantic, and of course hilarious! In the finale Daemon, Katy, and the others fight for themselves and the world. All while making snarky comments and pop culture references! I would recommend this book to fans of the previous books and to anyone who wants a fun read! Not only did Katy & Daemon’s story get a deserving end but so did all the characters! I can’t believe it’s over, I will miss these characters!Kaleigh, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

ARMS Beckland’s Fall by Stephen Arsenaeult

Perhaps they’ll unlock the secrets of the long dead civilization who built their sanctuary, using the technology hidden within the mysterious artificial intelligence left behind by those who created, & protects their last bastion of safety?

Don’t miss ONE exciting Book in this Brilliant Series!”Peter Anthony Roland, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Saven Deliverance (The Saven Series Book 4) by Siobhan Davis

She must decide between conflicting agendas that will lead to blood being spilled. In war, sacrifices must be made, but her desire to protect the two boys she loves, Ax and Logan, is unyielding. Who will be left standing after the coming battle? And will there be anything left to fight for?

What do readers say?

This is the last book in this story and the characters get the ending they deserve and have been struggeling for all this time!
As always the writing from Siobhan Davis is fast paced, very energetic and romantic at the same time. I am sad that the story has to have an ending, would love to know what comes next in their lives… If that doesn’t say enough: I love it!
Marlies Bontenbal, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do readers say?

Book 6 of the Cadicle is fantastic! The saga continues into a new generation but without leaving the three previous generations behind. It’s freaking awesome. And there’s more from the Priesthood and the Aesir and lots of machinations of all sorts and some cool new young people, many of them learning all sorts of new things and experiencing culture shock. It’s all good! The story lines are interesting, the writing is smooth and picks up on nuances between the characters. It’s a fun and gripping read.A. A. Baldwin, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do readers say?

Seriously when is it coming out!?”DeAnna, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

I love the world-building that goes on as we learn about new signs and planets. I think each book is better than the last which makes me very excited to see what the next book in the series, Thirteen Rising, has to offer. How am I going to wait until August?”Karen L. Ray, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do readers say?

“This is a well written sci-fi story with interesting characters that are struggling in a rough world that is but a shadow of our current planet. With resources declining, many homeless, stealing food is punishable by a death sentence to an off-world mining planet. For a few select teenagers, the alternative is join OA military.
This is the first book in a series. I definitely want to read the next.”

She will do anything to find the key to survival, and save the ones that she loves the most. Even if that means crossing the universe.

What do readers say?

“I got the first book for free and usually stop there. These books are well written with few errors (one of my personal pet peeves). I usually just read the first book and go on to another single but occasionally I get sucked up into a series as I did with this one. Can hardly wait for the next!”nancinurse, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

The Newest Best Books For Teens with Dystopian SciFi Stories

 

Admit it, we all like a good dystopian novel

It’s fun to imagine ourselves running through the wilderness with bow in hand, like Katniss and Gale, or exploring a huge maze like in The Maze Runner. Many of these YA worlds are just a few steps away from our own, like Chicago in the Divergent series. What would happen if just a few wrong words were said to the right people? As I write this article, our world is very much a place of conflict and constant change. We all know how they did it in some of the bestsellers like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Maze Runner. Check out some of the more recent dystopian best books for teens below and see how those heroes (and heroine) deal with it!

King’s Cage (Red Queen) by Victoria Aveyard

This third installment to the bestselling Red Queen series has it all. Mare Barrow is a prisoner of the boy she loved, now a King in control and causing havoc. Mare has had her lightning ability taken away, and her followers are preparing for a war that’s ready to explode. Plus the exiled prince that loves Mare is ready to kick some butt. Will he spring her free? And will there be anything left after the war? This is a fantastic young adult dystopian scifi series.

What do readers say?

“Way better than the 2nd book! The start was a little slow but necessary to match Mare’s psyche and development. All main characters had great development and it was very interesting to get a better look at what makes Maven such a psycho. Ending was both infuriating and heartbreaking. Can’t wait for the 4th!”Amazon Customer, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Frozen: A Stranded Novel by Theresa Shaver

I’m becoming a big fan of EMP dystopian novels. The instant loss of modern technology creates a lot of crazy problems. In this fifth installment of the story, a group of students trying to get home have made it back to their families, but their parents want to ignore how much their kids have changed from their journey. A deadly virus challenges the town to decide if they have what it takes to survive in a frozen wasteland.

What do readers say?

“Now I can’t wait for the next book in this series, Iced!!!! I don’t know how she does it, but Theresa Shaver weaves an amazing story every time! Just when you think the kids have got things all figured out, she comes up with another unbelievable twist! Can’t wait for the next book!”Patti Miller, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Age of Order by Julian North

This is a fun young adult read about a girl from the Bronx named Daniela. A plague means that you wouldn’t really want to live there, and neither does she. But she has an opportunity to attend an elite school in Manhattan, where she can enjoy the finest things in life. Of course, with all good things, there are the bad, and she quickly finds out that the highborn are not interested in sharing. Can she do something about it? Or will she decide to just sit pretty and fit in?

What do readers say?

“An excellent dystopian/sci-fi thriller. I saw echoes of books like Brave New World and 1984 as well as recent pop fare like Harry Potter. The author is a great storyteller, hitting just the right pace at each place in the story. I liked the writing style. What sets this apart from other books in the genre is the characters, who are far more realistically drawn than in similar dystopians, and the well-drawn mysteries in the plot. I received an ARC from the author.”Kevin T. Medina, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

State of Allegiance (Collapse Series Book 9) by Summer Lane

Cassidy Hart has been through a lot in this series, and this story is no exception. A nuclear disaster has become a possible reality, and that means leaving the naval station in San Diego for the Pacific Rim. Will Cassidy and her team be able to take hold of the weapon that could swing the power pendulum back towards the militia? Before nuclear apocalypse? Or will all their hope be lost? Everything about this series screams dystopian scifi.

What do readers say?

“This series just keeps getting better and better. Summer Lane has kept her characters true to their original “selves” yet they also keep growing and solidifying. I feel like I am a part of the story and action, that the characters are my friends and cohorts. An amazing author and storyteller! Cannot wait for the next book!!”SLM, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Rebellion (The 100 Series Book 4) by Kass Morgan

This series is now a tv show on CW. In book 4, a group of unruly teens have now become the leaders of their people. Now a cult threatens to destroy everything that they have built. Do you think these teenagers will stand for it? Heroine Clarke plans to save her captured friends, but not all the remaining teens agree with it. In fact, some of them have a plan of their own. Time ticks away as the captured teens wait for the rest of the team to pull together and remember what’s most important. This is a great young adult dystopian scifi book series that gives so much more than the tv show.

What do readers say?

“The amazing sci-fi world of The 100 is doubly rewarding to fans, having two parallel stories to follow. If you love the CW series, you can safely enjoy the books as well, because the stories diverged so completely early on, you have nothing to fear.

This latest entry is a nail-biter. Our heroes are captured by an army that might actually be more terrifying than Mount Weather. You’ll start to relax at a certain point, only to have the world turn scarier again. I look forward to more of this series.” –Dana Sweeney, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

The Gender Game 4: The Gender War by Bella Forrest

This dystopia series features a war devastated United States of America, with only two remaining states that feature one being ruled by a queen, and one ruled by a king. The respective female and male parties of each state have opposing views, pointing fingers at each other for everything political and otherwise. A small group of teens will rival against the king and the queen. Will the madness end?

What do readers say?

“I loved this series. Strange concept but it works very well. Just finished book four and immediately pr-ordered book 5. Can’t hardly wait to see what calamity Violet and Viggo run into next. My hats off to Bella Forrest, you took a strange concept and produced an exceptional series. Bring on book 5.”End of Trail, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Prescient: A Time Travel Dystopia by Derek Murphy

Time travel and dystopian, two of my favorite types of fiction novels. Alicia can time travel, and she’s really in a pickle. After learning about the upcoming end of the world, should she do something about it? Or should she spend the last few years of humanity with her boyfriend? The fact that her boyfriend’s father is the likely cause of the coming apocalypse plays into this story in a really creative way. She has the power, but does she have the strength? Even if that means losing the one person she wants the most?

What do readers say?

Wow! Time travel normally isn’t my thing, but I’ve had the honor of reading a couple of indie authors who are changing that. One is of course Melanie Hoo’s Flicker series (which I reviewed also). The other is now Derek Murphy and Prescient!

Alicia discovers her unique ability at a party while trying to impress her crush. What follows is a Netflix series-worthy tale that doesn’t let up – even when you reach the end of the book! A cross between Scooby Gang present moments and GMO inspired monster dystopia, I followed Alicia on this crazy ride. It’s full of twists and turns while remaining understandable and relatable. I can’t wait for book two!” –MamaPete, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Nameless: Book Three in the Enhanced Series by T.C. Edge

This is the third book in the series, and the fourth book is coming out this month. Brie is on an impossible mission that’s about to get worse. Waking up outside the city walls, she has to figure out how to get back in. Toxic mist, and a determined enemy will slow her down. How will she find her way back? And how will she get back in? Check out the entire YA series.

What do readers say?

“This series sucked me in, for real. I have to be up in a few hours but had to finish the latest installment. There’s a fair bit of violence, no sex, and very little gore, but I’m super duper hooked on this series. A strong female lead who wants/needs to change the world. Fortunately, she’s got superpowers and friends that just may help her succeed. Two thumbs up for intense scenes and an intriguing story.” –Achicana24, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

RUGOSA: A survival story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Omaha lives in a dystopian United States that traded it’s debt for sovereignty. The World Union Government is in charge, and it’s tearing the resources from cities, including the people that live there. Omaha is forced to take action when a government general comes between him and his girlfriend. Leaving his family with a backpack of supplies and a slingshot, he goes after his girlfriend. Does he have what it takes?

What do readers say?

“I am a fan of Creek Stewart and was looking forward to his first novel, Rugosa. Well it finally arrived and I liked it a lot. It was a good dystopian future novel that sneaked in many good survival skill tips. I liked the skills part because they were great info. but didn’t take me out of the story, Creek managed to integrate the tips so they really feel a part of the book. All in all a really good read.” –patrick t christman, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Hornet’s Nest: A Post Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series by Bobby Akart

Another EMP Dystopian novel that makes me hope for more in this series. This is book five, and it doesn’t disappoint. Coach Casey and his team called the Tigers will help the town deal with a problem that has been present for several decades. How well will they band together and solve the problem? And if they can overcome the odds, how will they continue to deal with the aftermath of a crazy huge solar flare?

What do readers say?

“This series just keeps getting better and better! Think you’d be willing to follow a 15 year old girl into battle??? I bet you would if that girl was Alex, I know I would! Thanks to Bobby Akart, we see just how much common sense our kids can have, if only we would teach them. This book, and the series have so many highs and lows, it’s quite the emotional roller coaster! I gotta say though, I wanted to kick somebody’s a$$ at the end of this one. Definitely a 5 star book by a 5 star author!” –Colt Payne, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

 

Paper and Fire (The Great Library) by Rachel Caine

This is the second book of young adult dystopian scifi Great Library series, and the third book is coming out in July. All the knowledge in the world is controlled by The Great Library. In the name of “the greater good”, a private citizen cannot own books anymore. Jess has been inducted into The Great Library, but it’s not what he expected. His girlfriend is a prisoner in a tower, and he lost his best friend. Jess will have to choose between being loyal to The Great Library, to his friends, or to his family. London is in flames, what will he choose?

What do readers say?

I was greatly impressed with the first book, and that continued with the second. Great characters, great story, great setting and great political system. My regret is having to wait for the next installment.” –Amazon Customer, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]
