The reluctant assassin is Riley, a Victorian boy who is suddenly plucked from his own time and whisked into the twenty-first century, accused of murder and on the run. Riley has been pulled into the FBI’s covert W.A.R.P. operation (Witness Anonymous Relocation Program). He and young FBI Agent Chevie Savano are forced to flee terrifying assassin-for-hire Albert Garrick, who pursues Riley through time and will not stop until he has hunted him down. Barely staying one step ahead, Riley and Chevie must stay alive and stop Garrick returning to his own time with knowledge and power that could change the world forever.

The Infinity Ring is a new interactive series like The 39 Clues. It’s one of those books that comes with extra bits and pieces so that you can find out more about the story and the characters. The Infinity Ring series is all about time travel so you follow the characters through different time periods. Each book comes with a Hystorian’s Guide, which is your key to unlocking the next adventure in the online game.
Book 1 is called A Mutiny in Time by James Dashner and it’s out at the end of the month.
When best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste stumble upon the secret of time travel — a hand-held device known as 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.
Now it’s up to Dak, Sera, and teenage Hystorian-in-training Riq to travel back in time to fix the Great Breaks . . . and to save Dak’s missing parents while they’re at it. First stop: Spain, 1492, where a sailor named Christopher Columbus is about to be thrown overboard in a deadly mutiny!

Six Days by Philip Webb is a very cool book that I’m reading at the moment. It’s set in a future London where the city is being torn down to hunt for a mysterious ‘artefact’ that is incredibly valuable. If you like books like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld then Six Days is the book for you.
