Nail biting adventure powers this time slip story in which three young people are transported back in time to search for their missing parents. Will they find their parents and, even if they do, will they be able to return home unless they can find the key to their time machine? Garry Douglas Kilworth is also the author of Jigsaw.


The Hundred Towered City by Garry Kilworth

What awaits Jack, Annie and Davey when they are transported back in time to the gothic city of Prague, to search for their missing parents? Trying to avoid capture by the secret police, they find themselves running through dark and dangerous cobbled streets and meet some very shady characters. Where are their parents and who has stolen the key to the time machine? Alchemists, mythical creatures and a man with a hook for a hand hold the answers they're looking for. Will our young heroes be in time to save their parents from eerie Karlstein Castle? And even if they do, how will they return to the present day without the key.


A fantastic read that will have imaginations working overtime * The Bookseller * Attica is his boldest yet * Carousel * Timeless and tremendously appealing * The Bookbag * Adventurous, enigmatic, tense and nerve-racking - like Lost, but better * Graham Marks *
