Time Castaways The Obsidian Compass by Shurtliff
In this second action-packed book of the Time Castaway series by Liesl Shurtliff, New York Times bestselling author of Rump: The True Tale of Rumpelstiltskin, the Hudson family embarks on a time-traveling quest to rescue Jia from the evil Captain Vincent—but the secrets of their past are catching up and nothing can stay hidden when time reveals all. Now in paperback!
Timing is key. Especially for this rescue mission.
Mateo, Ruby, and Corey Hudson have lost their friend Jia to the villainous Captain Vincent’s clutches, but they’re determined to save her and bring her back to safety. Only their parents won’t let them leave the house. After all, the last time-traveling adventure almost cost the kids their lives. The risk is too high when danger could be anywhere—and any time.
Worse still, without Captain Vincent’s magical Obsidian Compass, the Hudson kids don’t have a way to time travel, until Mateo figures out the secret component to get his own homemade compass working. Soon the whole family—plus their wacky neighbor, Chuck, and his rusty orange bus, Blossom—are swept up in another epic adventure. With their own time-traveling vehicle and some help from history’s most famous young markswoman, Annie Oakley, the Hudson kids are prepared to sneak onto the Vermillion and carry out their mission. But unbeknownst to them, Captain Vincent already knows they’re coming. In fact, he’s counting on it. . . .midd
