December 2014 Book of the Month A thrilling grand finale for The Chronicles of Tempus. As ever, the characters of modern day Katie and Victorian James and Princess Alice are the guides through this fast-paced time slip adventure in which jeopardy comes from Lord Belzun and his sinister team. Set at the heart of the Victorians in the family of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and their children and interweaving real characters from the past such as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, The Queen Alone brings the period to life and shows it in a fresh light by linking it so strongly to the present.

'Time travel, conspiracies, gruesome murders and supernatural creatures – this book contains them all!' and 'It was unputdownable. I loved the excitement of the plot, the suspense and the way you really were given a feel of Victorian Britain.'
