Product Description

Sixteen year-old Gary, desperate for a girlfriend, finds a pair of time-specs in a London park. They flip him into twenty-third century submerged London, a terrifying place where he meets the beautiful young Beetie, but he soon learns that love also brings unbearable burdens. Together with other rebels holed up in the disused London Underground, she leads Gary and his irrepressibly annoying friend, Mike, on a journey of passion, deceit, loyalty and terror… a journey to uncover the dark mystery of the Terminus, involving an enigmatic time-traveler called ‘God’ and an ancient Atlantean artifact.
‘Once you pick up this chilling book, be prepared to climb onto an emotional roller-coaster which you can’t get off until the story reaches its dramatic conclusion...’

More About the Author

Oliver Eade (1945-) is a retired hospital doctor who now writes for children, young adults and adults. An avid reader since childhood, he is atill drawn to 'Magical Realism', that space between reality and fantasy into and out of which children slip so easily in their play... and a driving force behind the myths and legends that span the world.
His first published children's novel, Moon Rabbit, a winner of the Writers' and Artists' 2007 Year Book New Novel Competition and long-listed for the 2008 Waterstones Children's Book Prize, brings together western and Chinese culture (Oliver's wife is Chinese) in a magical yin-yang journey of a Scots boy and Chinese girl to mythological China. The sequel, Monkey King's Revenge, was published in 2011. His dark fantasy for children, Northwards, was set in America where his eldest granddaughters live, as was a fun spoof on war, The Rainbow Animal (2012). Another children's fantasy, The Kelpie's Eyes, is due out in 2014. Set in Scotland, it's a tale of sisterly love spanning three dimensions.
Oliver's debut adult novel, A Single Petal, is also set in ancient China. It won the Local Legend 2012 Spiritual Writing Competition and focuses on one man's journey from loss to enlightenment whilst facing treachery and personal danger in a time of political upheaval. A collectioon of adult short stories, Lost Whispers, was published in 2013.
Oliver's futuristic young adult fantasy romance, The Terminus, set in London where he was born and brought up, was published in 2013 (Mauve Square Publishing). Also a playwright, his surreal comedy, The Gap, toured in Scotland in 2012, doubled with another play. A short play, Sodden Flodden, formed part of a multi-writer production marking the five hundredth centenary of the Battle of Flodden.
He was winner of the SOMW Wilfred Hopkins Prize for creative writing in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, and was awarded the 2010 Writer of the Year status by the Society of Civil and Public Service Writers.
Oliver travels regularly to China with his wife to visit her relatives and see more of the country he so loves. A keen amateur photographer (he did a diploma in photography) he has self-published a photographic book, Changing Faces and Places in China.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read 2 July 2013
By Simon
Format:Kindle Edition
Dystopian horror meets time travel in this enthralling tale. Teenager Gary suffers the agonies of first love against a backdrop of a drowned London two hundred years in the future. Together with his friend, Mike, and twenty-third century girlfriend, Beetie, he faces all the paradoxes of time travel and is able to influence the future by going back and changing the past.

This book has it all; tension, menace, love and betrayal and it deserves to become a great success in the YA market.

This is a great novel which I thoroughly enjoyed. Aimed at young adults, it ticks all the boxes. There is environmental catastrophe, young love, time travel, danger and excitement. What more could you want?
