A SUNDAY TIMES CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK

From the author of The Roman Mysteries comes a nail-biting time-travel adventure, set in Roman London - where past meets present.

Billionaire Solomon Daisy is obsessed with the skeleton of a blue eyed African girl from Roman London. When his tech guys accidentally invent a time machine he decides to send London schoolboy Alex Papas on a mission. Time travel is easier for kids, and Alex knows Greek and a little Latin. The portable portal is placed in London's Mithraeum, recently relocated back to its original 3rd century AD site. Now all Alex has to do is go through and find the blue-eyed girl.

There are just three rules:
1. Naked you go and naked you must return.
2. Drink, don't eat.
3. As little interaction as possible.

But Time Travel is fun fair, and there are more ways to die in Roman London than Alex could have guessed.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Caroline Lawrence's latest venture into time travel is a riotously enjoyable read that brings the sights, sounds and smells of ancient London vividly to life. The premise of Alexander Papas' time travel back to third century CE London is delightfully satisfying, quirky and - best of all - written with a real eye for historical detail, based on the finds at the London Mithraeum. - Emily Hauser (author of For The Most Beautiful)

Lawrence brings her scholarship and invention to a grisly adventure that reveals how brutal and unhealthy Roman times were, as Alex and an unwelcome companion face dangers ranging from gladiatorial contests to tempting flirtations. - Sunday Times
