Happy Birthday James Dashner!

Dashner writes amazing time travel fantasy adventures.

Have you ever wanted to travel to a different time?

In The Journal of Curious Letters thirteen-year-old Atticus "Tick" Higginbottom begins receiving mysterious letters from Alaska, signed only "M.G.," and the clues contained therein lead him on a journey to the perilous 13th Reality.

After being kidnapped by Mr. Chu, in The Hunt for Dark Infinity Tick and his friends Paul and Sofia must survive a series of tests in several different Realities.

Mistress Jane has tapped into the universe's darkest secret to create the Blade of Shattered Hope, and in her quest to attain a utopian reality for the future of mankind she is ready to risk billions of lives to set her plan in motion.

Is history broken?  Can we go back and fix it?

A Mutiny in Time is the first volume of the Infinity Ring series.

Best friends Dak Smyth and Sera Froste, together with the young Hystorian Riq, must use the Infinity Ring to travel back to a mutiny on the Santa María to correct history.

John Flanagan, Australian author

Are you looking for adventure in another place and time? Well, then you must read John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series and the spinoff, The Brotherband Chronicles.

These two series take place in a combination of Medieval and Viking Times. The main characters are orphans and misfits who are taken under the wings of some of the powerful men in their countries. The young men are involved in battles against bullies, strange creatures, invading armies and even pirates! Ranger's Apprentice starts with The Ruins of Gorlan. There are eleven books in this series. After you've read these you may want to read the first book in the spinoff series, The Outcasts.

If you've read these, did you have a favorite character or book?
