The swashbuckling first book in an explosive new series. Imagine if you lost your parents - not just in place, but in time.
Jake Djones' mum and dad have gone missing and they could be anywhere in the world - at any time in history. Because the Djones family have an astonishing secret, which for years they've managed to keep - even from each other. They belong to the History Keepers: a secret society which travels through the centuries to prevent evil enemies from meddling with history itself.
In the quest to find his parents, Jake is whisked from 21st-century London to 19th-century France, the headquarters of the mysterious History Keepers, where he discovers the truth about his family's disappearance - and the diabolical Prince Zeldt's plan to destroy the world as we know it.

"My tweens loved it"
My 11 year old boys loved the historical references intermingles with an exciting story. Fantastic
"a brilliant story well read"
interesting ideas , found by recommendation will look for more!
would recommend if you like Percy Jackson type stories ..
This book is incredible! I listened to it and I have absolutely no dislikes whatsoever. I recommend this book to children who love history.
"excellent adventure story for family listening"
really good imaginative story
The Young James Bond series. Though Young James Bond is not such fantasy, the kids loved the young hero/heroine protagonists in both, and the stories also reach out well to adults too.
Very good story telling (though his american accent is a touch artificial!)
really enjoyed it with our kids aged 9+ - good entertainment for the whole family
The narrator had a prefect accent for each character. The story kept on the edge of my seat as to what would happen next.
"Great idea good story interesting development"
It was a good book and I have listened to it three times I love the idea behind how they time travel and that the book tries to describe historical places and time periods. Though these descriptions only partially are based on historical time periods it is nice to see that this book at least follows it a little.
Though not a big character Rose was so funny I loved her. The other Character I loved was Topas it is nice to have a good female character that actually has a interesting story behind her.
Maybe skip the Italian accent.
Move yes tv series no.
Though he is ok in this book I feel that Jake in general is very stupid and it is bugging me.
