The Time Bubble Series
The Time Bubble is a science fiction series by Jason Ayres. This series introduces two teenagers, Charlie and Josh, and takes the reader through their adventure with time travel. In this series, the characters will have a chance to travel to the future, and while the experience is exciting, it will come with its fair share of challenges. The author also lets us into the characters’ personal lives, and it is exciting how they relate to one another. Are you curious to see how life will look in the future? This series paints a believable picture of how events may unfold in days to come.

The Time Bubble
The Time Bubble is the first book in The Time Bubble series. This book stars two teenage boys, Charlie and Josh, who stumble upon a startling discovery. Like other teenagers, Charlie and Josh are only interested in parties, drinking, and girls. This is until they discover the Time Bubble that can take them to the future. It is all fun when the two boys experiment with the machine only to travel a few seconds into the future. However, things start to get serious when the time jumps turn into minutes, hours, days, and longer. To make things worse, the teenagers do not tell the adults in their lives about their discovery.
Charlie and Josh realize the gravity of what they considered a game when a girl goes missing. The police get involved in the case, and Charlie is listed among the main suspects. Charlie knows where the girl is, but he is unsure that the police or his parents will believe him. Set in a small Southern England town, this story brings a fresh and exciting twist to time travel. The boys discover a time bubble in a tunnel that has just been excavated and decide to experiment with it. As they get caught up in the excitement of experiencing the future, they only think about the consequences much later. One of the characters also discovers just how rich they could become by doubling a penny each day.

As the time travel story unfolds, the author lets us into the teenagers’ romantic intrigue. People who shouldn’t be together are hooking up while those who are meant to be are making a mess of what they have. There is a lot of drama, just like you would expect in a book about teenagers, but the relationships are mostly healthy. One outstanding thing about this book is how well the author has explained the time-travel concept. You will not be guessing about what will happen next, but you will keep hoping that the characters can stop themselves from making mistakes that they might later regret. The ending will come as a surprise and will leave you yearning for more.

The Time Bubble is an exciting read with intriguing characters, an unusual plot, and a fantastic flow. Imagining and relating to the characters, and the rising pace will keep you turning the pages. There are many good relationships in this story, and it is fantastic what the teenagers did to the bad guys. This book is slightly over 220 pages long, and it is perfect if you are looking for a light read to fill a boring afternoon.

Global Cooling
Global Cooling is the second book in The Time Bubble series. The year is 2029, and Earth is in the middle of a huge climate catastrophe. Thanks to an asteroid strike, the globe is covered in ash and dust, making it impossible for the sun rays to pass through. Temperatures begin to go down, and the residents of a small Southern England town have to decide to either wait for it all to pass or flee from their now cold homes. D.I. Hannah Benson and her people choose to stay, but they soon realize that they have a lot on their plate. Food is scarce, power supplies are failing, and individuals with dark motives are taking advantage of the situation. Can the people survive the conditions, or will they change their minds?

Charlie, now with a heavily pregnant wife, is looking for a way to escape. However, when he and Kaylee get to Gatwick airport, they discover that the planes are all grounded. Desperate to find a way out of mainland Europe, Charlie and Kaylee travel towards the coast. They hope they will catch a vessel out if Europe. Josh Gardner, a time-travel expert and his partner Alice are headed to Cornwall. The couple is on a mission to investigate a new time bubble, but the journey is disrupted when the winter intensifies. If only there was a way to travel to the future and escape the current catastrophe.

Set a decade after The Time Bubble, this book shows how the characters’ lives look now that they are in their twenties. Once again, the author combines two strings, time travel, and natural disaster, to weave this intriguing tale. The character development is outstanding, and for anyone who has read the first book, it is fun to see how the teenagers’ lives have transformed now that they are adults. This is a great book that hits closer home, given the current climatic conditions. Since the book is not set too far in the future, it is easy to imagine what would happen in case such a catastrophe happens. Can humankind expect such disasters now that climatic conditions are getting worse by the day?

Global cooling is one of those books you pick and do not put down until you have read it cover to cover. Everything starting with the storyline to the characters is just right, and once the pace picks up, it doesn’t ease up until the end. Fortunately, the book is short enough to be enjoyed in one sitting. Despite the different plotlines, the story flows very well, and you cannot help but wonder how the author will wrap things up in this trilogy. It is fun meeting Charlie and Josh again as well as a few interesting new characters.
