We were going to die. But we’re St Mary’s and we weren’t dead yet
Max and Leon are re-united and looking forward to a peaceful lifetime together. But, sadly, they don’t even make it to lunchtime. The action races from 17th century London to Ancient Egypt and from Pompeii to 14th century Southwark as they’re pursued up and down the timeline, playing a perilous game of hide and seek until they’re finally forced to take refuge at St Mary’s – where new dangers await them.

Reading A Trail Through Time was an experience in conflicting emotions. On the one hand, I wasn’t sure how to feel about the “big twist” that this book is based on, and wasn’t entirely sold on it by the end. On the other, Max and Leon seemed a whole lot more mature, which was a relief, and Tim had a fair chunk of page-time, which was great.
