Great news, everyone!!! Our favorite author of the amazingly witty Artemis Fowl series is back again, this time with a teen novel!!! I just found out about it not long ago, and I was so excited to read more of Eoin Colfer’s work. This series is honestly so good that I wasn’t satisfied with only three books in the series.
It’s about a boy named Riley from the Victorian era, who somehow gets transported to modern day society. There, he meets the young FBI agent Chevie Savano, and together they try to stop Albert Garrick, the assassin-for-hire who has followed Riley from his own time, from returning to his own time with knowledge about modern society.
Gwyneth Shepherd is from a family that passes a gene of time travel through its female decendants. Her sophisticated and beautiful cousin Charlotte had been born on the prophecised day, and had been prepared by the family her entire life for time travel, but somehow, it is Gwyneth who unexpectedly spins to another era in the middle of class!
Now, Gwyneth needs to unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to cover up her ability, and get herself educated on history. She is introduced to Gideon, a time traveller from another family that passes the time travel gene through the male line. Love blossoms, and together, they journey through time to 18th century London to discover who they can trust.
