    Our heroes and heroines just managed to survive and succeed in their first time mission mostly by luck. They’re now in intense training and the leaders even have them merged in as shadows of another squad with none other than President Nixon as their new leader. None of them are too happy about this, but they do admit they need more knowledge before heading into the field again. And Delia and Titus keep bumping heads. They soon get called in to help when sensors indicate something is whacky with Our heroes and heroines just managed to survive and succeed in their first time mission mostly by luck.

None of them are too happy about this, but they do admit they need more knowledge before heading into the field again. And Delia and Titus keep bumping heads. They soon get called in to help when sensors indicate something is whacky with the timeline in Versailles in the 1700s. Are they prepared for just HOW whacky things really are and can they fix the problems?Get ready for another wild ride through time! That second half of the book especially takes a lot of close reading and observing of pictures to follow well. Which isn’t bad. It would kind of be a disappointment if a time travel adventure didn’t get a little wild and weird. I like the personal development that’s also happening, and the building of skills among the team members. The mystery of what caused the rift between the Earl and Lyndon also gets a little development and a mind-blowing ending to this book. It was a really interesting choice to have Nixon as their leader, but it wasn’t bad. I had students asking me before Christmas when this book would be coming out. They are quite eager for it to hit the shelves and I don’t think they’ll be disappointed, but they will be just as eager for book 3 to come asap. I’ve had several students read the first book that were sucked in because it was a graphic novel with an attractive cover even though I’ve never seen them reading any other time travel books or scifi in general for that matter, so it seems to be a good gateway book for them to taste test whether they like those genres. This entire series is recommended if you’re looking for a book to get a reluctant reader devouring a book, and as mentioned, get those who might think they don’t like scifi sneaking over to check out other scifi books. And of course, hand this to those faithful scifi/time travel fans, and graphic novel fans.Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content (there’s an almost kiss, but nothing happens). Some perilous situations but everyone seems to end up ok.I received an ARC of this title from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Librarian: This is one of many fun graphic novel series currently out that appeal to the Middle School Market. There's certainly no shortage of Graphic Novels to choose from, and I understand that it's a struggle to choose the best fits. That Being said, I think that this one is a good choice for a lot of libraries. Its blend of sci-fi adventure and typical young teen drama mean that it should appeal to a wide swath of readers.

Reader: I truly loved the first book in this series. It was a great ride that made me smile from beginning to end. And after that ending I really wanted to know what would happen next. This one didn't quite live up to expectations. I really wanted to love it like I did the first one, but in the end, I just found it fine. Not bad, but not great either. Still I remain curious about what comes next. I'll definitely read the next one.

    This is a pretty solid series so far. The new, youngest Epoch group have started running missions since the dramatic events of volume 1. Only, things are getting a bit out of hand. Assigned to shadow a more experienced Epoch group our protagonists get caught in a time loop. The consequences if they can't get out of it? Certain death (and maybe the universe exploding). The art's kind of rough in this arc, but I assume that will be polished up, since that's what happened in Vol. 1. While entertain This is a pretty solid series so far.

The art's kind of rough in this arc, but I assume that will be polished up, since that's what happened in Vol. 1. While entertaining, the story got very confusing, very quickly. I'm not sure a time loop was the right decision for this volume. It might have been helped if more had been done to differentiate which character was from which time period. Overall, I enjoyed it.3/5 stars.

    I'm glad to see the science and fun continue in this volume! While the plot got a little confusing, I appreciate Loux's commitment to his characters--the friendships between Delia and the girls are heartwarming, and Titus butting heads with both Delia and Dex made me chuckle. I also giggled at some of the references (including a Futurama-esque Nixon and the brief Trump cameo).I hope there's not another two-year gap between volumes, though; these cliffhangers are killer.

    4.5⭐s Excellent! It was a solid second book in the Time Museum series. The time traveling becomes more complicated but still relatively understandable, And I was invested in each character especially as the team dynamic began to change! Plus it ended on a massive cliffhanger!Can’t wait for book 3!!! 4.5⭐️s Excellent! It was a solid second book in the Time Museum series.

    It did get quite confusing in the end. I found myself having to go over the explanation a few times. Overall I can’t wait to see where the time museum goes!
