History Keepers: The Storm Begins by Damian Dibben
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...

"From the moment I began reading I was invited into a world of daring and intrigue that had pace, momentum and was a great deal of fun. It had everything I would hope and expect from a swashbuckling adventure story: secret societies, diabolical arch nemeses, double agents, unlikely heroes, likely heroes… and to add to all this, great heart. There are moments of absurdity and hilarity amid grave danger that are written so well as to make the reader laugh even as they fear for a well-loved character’s life. It’s a difficult thing to achieve but the author manages it...Stand aside Dr. Who; the History Keepers have arrived." - Bookish and Feint
"This is an utterly rambunctious read, full of swashbuckling adventure and peopled with vivid characters. The goodies are very good and the baddies are very bad.. ...Dibben doesn't waste any time at all and it's easy to keep reading for hours without realising. There's a deal of humour, too.. The whole thing has great heart and highspiritedness.. For adrenalin junkies, it’s just great." - The Bookbag.co.uk
