    Where time travel is done right. How do you review the best time travel books you've ever read? Well, let's start at the beginning where In Times Like These we meet Ben and his very likable and sometimes very funny friends who are accidentally thrown back in time. Then they are challenged to figure out how to get to their own time. They meet a lot of interesting and helpful people along the way. But, not everyone is helpful. They learn how to time travel! And trust me, there is nothing easy about Where time travel is done right. How do you review the best time travel books you've ever read? Well, let's start at the beginning where In Times Like These we meet Ben and his very likable and sometimes very funny friends who are accidentally thrown back in time. Then they are challenged to figure out how to get to their own time. They meet a lot of interesting and helpful people along the way. But, not everyone is helpful. They learn how to time travel! And trust me, there is nothing easy about it! The main reason I really like this series is that time travel is a lifestyle for many of the characters. There are jumps all over the place, with our friends traveling forward and backward in time. We meet the charming man who discovered and developed time travel! Van Coops has an extraordinary imagination when it comes to creating the science behind time travel. The Chronothon is an action packed race through time encompassing many locations and an onslaught of perils! Our hero Ben has his work cut out for him. But he learns creatively how to survive and succeed. There were many scenes that kept competing for my favorite! The storyline has thoughtful and touching moments too, made me cry. This book has a bit more depth and complexity but still a lot of funny parts and also scary, stomach clutching parts! A little something for everyone. Also romance blossoms a bit more and is well done. The interesting characters and the friendships made were strong and well developed in this book. I came to really love and care about many of the people in this story. The Day After Never starts right from the ending of the Chronoton. Lots of questions are answered with a whole new group now asked! We switch back and forth between two times and two worlds and I'm not sure how many Ben's! Van Coops does an excellent job of keeping the reader engaged in both worlds with intriguing clues to our mystery. As the story unfolds, emerging events give the reader lots to ponder. Van Coops does an amazing job creating new developments that build up the suspense but yet tie up all three books beautifully. My favorite scenes are those of the future which is described so vividly. There are lots of problems for Ben and everyone to solve and the solutions are never what you expect! The twists and turns and surprises in this book are fabulous. I have read many time travel books and these are by far the best and most satisfying due to the creative imagination and excellent writing of Nathan Van Coops.

    This by far bypasses both the Hunger Games and Divergent series. DISCLAIMER : Contains spoilers Nathan Van Coops has out done himself this time. Nathan Van Coops wrote all three of these books so that they could be read independently of each other. In Times like These (Book 1): Ben Travers and his friends are playing a softball game and a series of unfortuent events catapults a normal group of friends into a world that they do not understand or that they do not want to understand. They meet the first This by far bypasses both the Hunger Games and Divergent series. DISCLAIMER : Contains spoilers Nathan Van Coops has out done himself this time.

In Times like These (Book 1): Ben Travers and his friends are playing a softball game and a series of unfortuent events catapults a normal group of friends into a world that they do not understand or that they do not want to understand. They meet the first scientist that discovered time travel, Dr. Harold Quickly, and he teachs them how to be time travelers and helps them get back to 2009. What I enjoyed the most about this book is how Coops portrayed the confusion and the fear that the friends get when they discover that they went back in time to the 1900's. I would certainly reccomend this book because if you have a ereader because this book is free for kindle. The Chronothon (Book 2): Be Travers is at it again in this thriller. Ben mistakenly signs up for a chronothon, a race through time to get certain objectives. After discovering that the race is rigged, Ben must stop the plan before it can fully take shape. What i liked most about this book is the way that Nathan made this book independent of In Times like These and how he used his vast imagination to come up with the objectives and locations used in the book. This book costs money, but if you have kindle unlimited, i would certainly reccomend that you check this book out The Day after Never (Book 3): Ben Traver is caught up in another time shaping event. A group called the Eternals is trying to ressurect Zurvan, there leader from the Neverwhere, a world thay exists between death and life. The Neverwhere can be changed by your memories and it can allow you to se what is happening in your other selfs body. To stop this group Ben must team up with Quickly and figure out what they are up to before time runs out. What i liked most about this book is the imagination that Coops had in creating the Neverwhere. Again it is not free but highly recommended if you have kindle unlimited. Nathan Van Coops is my favorite author and i cant wait to see if he will release a forth book in this series. ill be waiting -Nick Pease

    So good I've been lost in this trilogy for the past few weeks, and now I'm in mourning. I loved everything about the story and characters in their entirety, and the way the author has woven together the time streams with pseudo science that is so imaginative and yet so believable is just incredible. I wholeheartedly recommend this series to everyone, and I doff my cap to you Mr. Van Coops. I'm planning to blink back to the start and do it all again ;-)

    The best most in depth time travel book I've read This is by far the best ever. This series is complicated in its simplicity and you will find yourself flipping back pages to see what you missed. I'm sorry it's over. I wish I could go back in time and tell my younger self to read it.

    Kindle Unlimited although must have picked up at least 2 of them on freebie days. Got confused a bit too many times, although that does happen in time travel books, but a bit too much so didn't love it but did like it. Found it odd that the 3 set had same title as the first book. 1 In Times Like These 2 The Chronothon 3 The Day After Never In Times Like These (3 Book Series)

    All in the Detail. I am a huge fan of Time Travel stories This series has to be one of the best that I have read. Van Coops deal with some very complex issues associated with time travel and he does it well. He explains the mechanics meticulously. Some of the concepts he introduces are interesting and essential to the story. As for the story itself, it is an excellent adventure. Bill and Ted would be proud. It is reasonably fast paced, exploring many periods of human history and possible futures All in the Detail.

    The best time travel trilogy I've read to date! I don't know where to begin. I haven't encountered a time travel trilogy that only gets better in each release. The author did very awesome in tracking down every single "period" of the travels of each characters in their different versions. As well as interweaving the biggest arc of all in each novel arc and the side arcs and the minor arcs. I can not even imagine how time consuming it all was, unless of course he himself is a time traveler. Then ag The best time travel trilogy I've read to date! I don't know where to begin.

As well as interweaving the biggest arc of all in each novel arc and the side arcs and the minor arcs. I can not even imagine how time consuming it all was, unless of course he himself is a time traveler. Then again, he already showed us how he tracked of time for each character, if you think about it. Great characters. The actions are intense, you want to just skip to know the ending but you know you can't. The growth of the characters, especially, Ben and Mym were simply perfect. The comical dialogues. The adventures in time. The use of various historical records and future imagination combined, made this trilogy one any time travel fanatic should never miss. I'm sure this series is a legend in the time travelling community. Then again, the author might actually be a time traveller, could very well be their story, of Ben and Mym. Or maybe, I'm a time traveler who wants to leave a mark here in December 2017 because I saw my review in the Temporal Academy in 2317. We can't have paradoxes, right? ;) Mabuhay! -2317.

    Almost 5 Stars Highly recommend this trilogy. After reading the first book on as a freebie from Kindle Prime, I joined Kindle Unlimited to read the rest of the series. I haven't been able to put it down. This well worth purchasing as a keeper; I want to read it with my grandchildren in a few years! There are a quite a few parts of the story from the first book which I think could have been brought forward. There are so many directions which this series of stories could take. Keep writing, @NathaVa Almost 5 Stars Highly recommend this trilogy. After reading the first book on as a freebie from Kindle Prime, I joined Kindle Unlimited to read the rest of the series.

    Refreshingly solid and enjoyable So many books I have read lately seems they’re just turned out with not a lot of depth. This was enjoyable and well written. Reminiscent of the back to the future trilogy but only in the theme, the stories were original and hard to put down.
