Waterstones Says

Boasting unique plotting and a glorious cast of characters, the gripping sequel to Monstrous Devices sees Alex and his grandfather embark on an important mission that turns into an eerie adventure filled with ancient secrets, near-escapes and otherworldly magic.

The thrilling sequel to Monstrous Devices - Alex and his grandfather hold the fate of history itself in their hands in a Rick Riordan meets Raiders of the Lost Ark adventure of epic proportions!

When Alex's grandfather sent him a tin robot with strange powers, his world changed forever...

Now, Alex must help his grandfather rescue his old friend Harry, who has fallen into the clutches of a formidable foe. The duo's mission takes them on a desperate dash across Europe, chasing down the mystery Harry was investigating when he disappeared. But can Alex work out the ancient secret that lies hidden in the depths of Germany's Black Forest and harness the powers of his robot before it's too late?

Innocent lives - and even history itself - are at stake.

'Alex and his granddad's next breathtaking adventure is set in a magical and mysterious corner of Europe... a superbly assured sequel where detailed settings, a clever plot, and cliffhanging action combine in an unforgettable read.

Highly recommended.' - South China Morning Post
