Publisher's Summary

Ted Bell's Nick of Time is an epic adventure story starring young Nick McIver, who uses a time machine to rescue two young children taken prisoner by pirates. Along the way, with courageous feats of derring-do, not to mention his resourcefulness, our young hero - "the most reliable boy in England" - changes the course of events in two time periods, the Napoleonic Wars and World War II.

It's like the good guys always win!!

I'm 34 years old, and was wanting an adventure. This was IT! I wished it could go on forever.

A frolicking good time

I'm a big fan of Ted Bell's Alex Hawke stories, so I had high expectations from this book, and I wasn't disappointed. The genre is very different from the Alex Hawke books, but the high excitement and excellent character development made this a joy to listen to. I love the way Ted integrated a fantasy pirate adventure with a time travel story, and grounded it all with historically significant characters. It was like Pirates of the Caribbean meets The Hunt For Red October. This is one I will definitely listen to again.
