Annotation 3 Still reeling from their experiences in Roanoke in 1600, Jonah and Katherine arrive in 1611 only moments before a mutiny on Henry Hudson’s ship in the icy waters of James Bay. But things are messed up: they’ve lost the real John Hudson, and they find what seems to be the fabled Northwest Passage—even though they are pretty sure that that route doesn’t actually exist. Will this new version of history replace the real past? Is this the end of time as we know it? With more at stake than ever before, Jonah and Katherine struggle to unravel the mysteries of 1611 and the Hudson Passage...before everything they know is lost.

Booklist Reviews 2011 September #1
Time-fixing siblings Katherine and Jonah are in the middle of frigid James Bay in 1611, where Jonah is acting as a live stand-in for explorer Henry Hudson's son. This is all treacherous Second's fault: he has so completely destabilized Time that there are no guarantees that Jonah and Katherine can preserve history. If they don't, it means the end of them as well as their friends still trapped in 1600. Hudson's ill-fated explorations provide an excellent opportunity for readers to learn about sailing ships, survival, and mutiny. Plenty of action and an extended author's note sustain this fourth entry in the Missing series. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring
Jonah and Katherine travel to Henry Hudson's ship in 1611. There they must stop unethical time-traveler Second from changing history and thus ending the world. The text makes both history and time logic accessible and exciting. Haddix's usual thorough and engaging backmatter sheds more light on the historical mysteries of Hudson's last voyage.

Kirkus Reviews 2011 July #1

The fourth installment of this enjoyable time-travel series for preteens takes readers to a lesser-known historical event than those in the earlier books: the mutiny on Henry Hudson's ship, the Discovery, in 1611.

Jonah and Katherine land on board the icy ship just when the mutineers cast Hudson and his remaining loyal crewmembers adrift, never to be seen again. However, "Second," the rogue time traveler from the previous episode (Sabotaged, 2010) takes charge again, trying to get the children to fix the damage he's done to time, or so he says. As Katherine remains invisible, Jonah takes on a disguise as Hudson's teenage son, which forces him to climb the rigging on the ship and to deal with the egomaniacal Hudson and treacherous, starving crewmen. When Second allows Hudson to find the elusive Northwest Passage, the children begin to worry that time can't be repaired. Fortunately, Haddix has another sci-fi trick up her sleeve and keeps the story suspenseful and tight. Jonah appears to be maturing a bit, although he still has trouble with his impulse control. Best of all, the story feels like real history, with believable characters and plausible events. It will likely spark interest in young readers, especially with help from the afterword, which directly addresses middle schoolers.

Another action-filled and suspenseful historical thriller. (Science fiction. 8-12)
