The Doomsday Code (TimeRiders, #3)
In 1993 British computer hacker Adam Lewis finds his name in a coded manuscript that is almost one thousand years old. How did Adam’s name get in there... and why?

Confronted by Adam in 2001, the TimeRiders travel back to Sherwood Forest in 1193 to discover the origins of the ancient message. But when a strange hooded man appears interested in the same thing, they begin to wonder what terrible threat this cryptic link from the past holds for the future...
I've fallen really hard for this series. And I will tell you this now: I am getting the next one.
Sparks sputtered from the cage and showered onto the floor. The fluorescent lights across the warehouse ceiling flickered, popped, and went out, leaving them in darkness lit only by the strobing flash of Waldstein's electrical execution.
Maddy, Sal, Liam grow more in this book. They start questioning their jobs and "The Agency". They all startt wondering if history is better the way it is or if it should be changed. And Liam starts to notice he is aging more then the girls. I like that they have doubts. It makes them better. And Bob and Becks are starting to learn how to be human.
The plot was pretty good. It flowed well. It gave hints about something in the future that they will have to worry about. It sets up well for future books. One thing I would like is for Maddy to stop relaying on Foster. I mean, let the guy live whatever life he has left.
I don't have much else to say. I liked the book. I love the series. I will get the next one, and i think you should read this series.
