Gates of Rome is the fifth book in the Time Riders series. Liam and Bob head back into Roman times to resolve a time contamination. While they are gone, other time agents attack the field office leaving Maddy and Sal to escape into the past. All the team are now stuck in ancient Rome unsure how to get back to their own time or why they have been attacked. Trapped in a time when Caligula is ruling years after he should have died, knowing that the time contamination has caused New York to not exist, Liam, Maddy, Sal and Bob have to figure out how to fix things from where they are and hope that somehow they’ll return home.
Alex Scarrow provides another action-packed, fast-paced and excellently written book, continuing and adding to the previous books in the series.
