Synopsis

The History Keepers 2: Circus Maximus by Damian Dibben

The History Keepers are in terrible danger once more. Stocks of Atomium - the crucial ingredient which allows them to travel through time - are perilously low, and the agents must embark on a risky mission to find more. And now a new and even more evil member of the Zeldt family is planning a hideous take-over of the Ancient world, and they are forced to travel further back into history than ever before in order to save the day. Well, all of the days actually.

When Jake and the History Keepers receive a cryptic message, all their skills are put to the test. Who is the sender, and where on earth - and from what place in time - has the code come from? The clues lead them to AD 27 - the last-known whereabouts of Agata Zeldt, 'the most evil woman in history'. None but the bravest agent could possibly travel that far back in time. The agents must embark up on another rollercoaster adventure that will take them from the frozen wastes of Sweden, right into the dangerous heart of the ancient world.
