"Move over Harry Potter, it is time for Jake Djones to take the limelight. Almost too exciting for bedtime reading" (Daily Telegraph)

Jake Djones is your ordinary fourteen year old boy, until he learns that his parents are missing but not just in modern day, but somewhere, anywhere, in history. They work for an organisation called The History Keepers who travel through time to keep history the same as it has always been known. Jake is quickly thrust into a world that he struggles to comprehend but a very curious nature, a strong, protective and passion filled heart compel him to surge forward and go above and beyond what is expected of him to save his parents. I loved Jake. I liked how he didn't listen to orders and did what he felt was right, I loved that he followed his heart, that he was smarter than he gave himself credit for and I just enjoyed the journey that he took himself on.Read more ›
As a teacher of A levels I was delighted that historical events were seamlessly woven into the story, AND there were enticing references to the History of Ideas, which students of all subjects find fascinating. Throughout is a friendly humour both intelligent and lavatorial; this book is not mean and worthy, it has a vast range of time, space and appeal.
History Keepers may not catapult your child into being a renaissance man/woman, but its a good start.
This would make a wonderful film!!!! I now plan to read the sequel.
Time travel, double agents, secret societies, comedy, growing up and who knows, perhaps romance kept me entertained and engrossed through this book and straight in to the next, Circus Maximus. I'm looking for more and hope Damien Dibben comes up with a grand finale soon to the trilogy.
He devoured all of Harry Potter at age 8 over a summer and has continued to read at a furious rate ever since. He's read every thing from Alex Ryder, Percy Jackson, The Conspiracy 365 series and now the Cherub and Henderson boy series.
This one went the same way as everything else although I think he found it slightly harder work (a good thing). I won't give the story away but as soon as he finished it he was asking for the next in the series..... So I reckon it's worthy of 5 stars!
Jake Djones (cool spelling) is caught up in a centuries old agency's fight to preserve history as we know it.
With a host of colourful characters (Nathan is my favourite) this book is good enough to be enjoyed by all ages and I can't wait for the next adventure.
