The Secret of the Bird God by Evadeen Brickwood
01 Nov 2017
Finding their way back to Alesia and their home in the future turns out to be more difficult than the time travellers expected. War breaks out in the Mediterranean Sea and forces Katherine, Trevor and Chriseis to travel overland. Nothing here is the way they thought it would be and who has ever heard of Egypt without pyramids? To top it all off, evil giants continue to haunt them and somebody seems to be standing in their way. Eventually, they find out the shocking truth. Can the elusive Bird God help the children get to safety in time?
