Description

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 . . .

Review quote

"Move over Harry Potter, it is time for Jake Djones to take the limelight. Almost too exciting for bedtime reading" * Daily Telegraph * "History can be fun too! Damian Dibben's books have got kids' imaginations going - and cultivated their interest in the past to boot." * Sun * "The next big thing" * Observer * "A time travelling detective tale. There are desperate chases, hair-raising escapes . . . and more comical or eccentric secondary characters than you could shake a wand at" -- Tony Bradman * Guardian * "We're predicting extremely big things from this new adventure series from Damian Dibben" * Mail on Sunday * "If you've got Harry Potter withdrawal, The History Keepers is just the thing. A cocktail of time travel, secret societies, double agents and edge-of-your-seat excitement, it's sure to fill that fantasy void. The only problem? You won't be able to put it down" * Glamour *
