It's 1940 and the Nazis are invading Nick's beloved home, the British Channel Islands. So Nick takes to the skies: He has discovered an old World War One fighter plane in an abandoned barn. Determined to learn to fly, he is soon risking life and limb to photograph armed German minelayers and patrol boats, and executing incredibly perilous bombing raids over Nazi airfields by night.

Meanwhile, the evil pirate, Captain Billy Blood, still desperate to acquire Nick's time machine, returns to Greybeard Island. He kidnaps Nick's sister, Kate, and transports her back to Port Royal, Jamaica, in the year 1781, leaving Nick a message that if he wants to see her alive again, he must come to Jamaica and make an even swap: Kate's life in exchange for Nick's wondrous time machine--that's Blood's bargain.

As fantastic as the first book was . This one is the dead opposite. While it starts out well and feels like the first book it devolves into a long, long, long war story in America in 1781, chapter after chapter after chapter of cannon balls and flying lead. As boring as heck. I stress this is basically the whole book. None of the charm of the first book; the great repartee and delightful characters . GONE MAN ....NOT IN THIS BOOK. I ended scanning much of the second half of the book. It never goes back to 1940 and there was so much story to tell in 1940 and well that was the whole cool thing about the first book it went back and forth in time. Not in this book. If you love the first book as i did, you may well hate this one as much as i did. Also it ends so abruptly like -ka-boom!!! what was that all about ?? Well because the war stuff was so longgggggggg. The editor must have been pulling her hair out till she finally told Mr. bell to just' finish the darn book or else'! Actually with some thought perhaps a editor was totally absent in this book. That could explain a lot.....Maybe you get the point. I cry that I paid almost 6 dollars for this. I would never buy another and I suspect one is planned. Save you loot folks buy the Tim Westerfeld trilogy-"Behemoth", sort of similar but all 3 books excellent.

THE TIME PIRATE, by Ted Bell, is the second installment in the Nick McIver Time Adventure series (the series has apparently been renamed between the first and second books). Our intrepid heroes, 12 year old Nick McIver, and his fearless little sister, Katie, are still having fascinating adventures and preserving the flow of history. And this time, loyal, duty-bound Nick must betray his country, his beloved England, in order to save it.

Like all young boys, Nick McIver wants to grow up to be hero like his father, a highly decorated WWI ace pilot. The values of loyalty, honor, and duty are part of Nick's very soul. Nazis have invaded his home, one of the British Channel Islands, and Nick knows that he must do whatever he can to protect his home, his family, his friends, and his country. To this end, Nick lovingly restores his father's old WWI Sopwith Camel biplane, takes flying lessons from his father, and conducts secret air raids on the neighboring Nazi compounds. Ever brave, Nick faces his fears and does his duty. But his duty comes on other fronts as well. As we learned in the first book, Nick is in possession of one of two time machines invented by Leonardo Di Vinci. The evil pirate captain, Billy Blood is in possession of the other. Blood plans to change history, by ensuring that the Americans lose their battle for independence. Nick realizes that if America never achieves independence, then she cannot come to the aid of Britain in 1940, and his country will be conquered by the Nazis. Nick must travel back to a critical turning point in the American Revolution and give aid to General Washington. But, to do so will be an act of betrayal against England. Can he do it? Can Nick live with the results of his choices? Can Nick alone defeat Billy Blood, and preserve the course of history?

THE TIME PIRATE starts off with a bang and plunges forward with excitement and adventure to the very end. Along the way, Nick meets a number of historical heroes, and he does his very best to do what he thinks is right. I love the values and morals of these books; they are filled with duty, honor, family, country, and politeness - all things I want my children to know. I also love that Nick and Katie's parents are alive, loving, and supportive, and that they form a strong family unit. His parents may not know everything Nick is doing, but they know enough, and while they worry, they understand his motives.

Although it is marketed to grades 5 through 8, THE TIME PIRATE is really for the adventurer in all of us. I wish I had had something like this when I was learning history; history might have "stuck" with me better. I definitely would have enjoyed it more. And I did some checking: while the story is fictional, the facts are not. THE TIME PIRATE is rich in details and history of the both wars- the American Revolution and WWII.

IMHO, THE TIME PIRATE does what most sequels fail to do; it not only equals the first book in the series, it surpasses it. THE TIME PIRATE is a grand mash up of the best of Horatio Hornblower and Harry Potter. I hope Ted Bell plans many more books.

I just wish Ted Bell would write more about Nick the time traveller!!
Ted, you don't write fast enough for me.
Now that Vince Flynn is dead, it's up to you and Brad Thor and Brad Taylor to take up the slack.
Your Hawke books are too far between and you only wrote the two Nick books.
Write faster, please !!!!
I LOVE everything you write!!!! I even pay full price for your books...

Time Pirate, Ted Bell's new Young Adult novel and sequel to Nick of Time, comes back full steam ahead with a rip-roaring action packed adventure story for boys and men of all ages! 464 pages of non-stop thrills and chills that will have you on the edge of your seat from page one to the end.

Time Pirate picks up right where Bell left us at the end of Nick of Time, on the island of Greybeard in the British Channel Islands, with 12 year old Nick McIver getting ready for the inevitable coming war. The year is 1940 and as we start out this installment, the Nazis are slowly approaching and inching their way to invading the islands. Nick McIver's friend Winston Churchill is doing his best to forestall the onslaught, but the powers that be have British troops retreating leaving the islands demilitarized and abandoned to fight for their lives on their own.

This story is pretty complex and involves many paralleled events that put Nick McIver and his friends Gunner, Lord Hawke, Commander Hobbes and his adorable little sister Katie, in quite the tailspin as they once again risk their lives for home and country. One day Nick uncovers his father's old WWI fighter plane, a dilapidated old Sopwith Camel. With the help of Gunner, the islands Inn owner, they rebuild and rejuvenate the old plane to it's original glory. After Nick presents his father with his old war prize, Angus McIver teaches his son to fly it himself just in time to do some real live spying and reconnaissance work for Churchill as his daily flights take secret mission photographs of the enemy. Death defying barnstorming scenes with Nick in the air shooting at Nazi's, and German parachuters sailing onto home grounds, have Gunner and Nick realizing it's time to fight. Together with the help of weapons specialist Hobbes, they create apple size bombs that allow our young hero to teach the enemy a few lessons.

But that's not all that's in store for Nick McIver. His old arch enemy, the evil pirate of the Caribbean, Billy Blood, is out for revenge after Nick sliced of his hand and comes to kidnap his sister and bring her back to 1781. Billy Blood wants the second time travel orb that Nick has in possession and uses Katie as bait to get Nick to travel back to the high seas to get his sister back in trade for Leonardo Da Vinci's time machine. And while we the readers witness more high seas battles of wit with cannons firing and pirates dueling, Nick uncovers Billy's secret mission to band together 100 pirate ships that will attack and overtake an armada in the Americas. His plan involves another historical event that involves George Washington, and General Lafayette amidst the American Revolutionary War at Yorktown Virginia, the crucial battle that ends the winning war for America that sent the Redcoats packing! Masquerading as a British drummer Boy, Nick goes undercover surviving in the wilderness alone, killing indians and becomes a double spy for both England and America, helping George Washington win the war.

This is a superb action novel that never lets up. It is finely written with wonderful characters both good and bad, and reflects detailed historical research on the author's part that surely adds to the success of this series. When it comes to action and a hero destined for the classics, you can't beat Nick McIver and his Time Travel adventures. Time Pirate has you hearing the clang of Pirate swords, cannon fire exploding upon tall ships of the high seas, the sound of blunderbusses and flintlocks, cavalry horses stampeding, and droning airplanes complete with bombs and bullets flying as Nick McIver once again saves the day. Fabulous, absolutely positively fabulous!
