LoveReading View on The Queen Alone

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.

Some of our readers were lucky enough to review the first of the Chronicles of the Tempus Series , The Queen Must Die....here's a taster of what they thought... '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.'

The Queen Alone Synopsis

The final instalment in the extraordinary time-traveling adventures of Katie Berger-Jones-Burg. An historical trilogy for 9-12 year-old readers.

Katie Berger-Jones-Burg is a lonely New York teenager. It's Christmas, and with her pop-star mother away on a whirlwind tour, all is not well with Katie. She is having visions. She remembers...Katie is needed in another time. In 1860 it's Christmas too. Princess Alice is helping her father Prince Albert with his endless stream of work while the rest of the family - including Queen Victoria - are enjoying the wonderful snow. But the merry royal family are under a shadow. There is a plot - both political and supernatural - to bring down the Queen. A Britain without its Queen is weak, and where Britain stumbles, the rest of the world falls...
