"Rarely does an author have the courage to explain the metaphysics of time with crystal clarity in a book pitched at children as young as eight....You'll scratch your head and need to read it all over again right away, but double science has never been so much fun." - Alex O'Connell, The Times
"A heart-stopping prewar adventure with thrills and twists, codes and puzzles, underpinned by an intense evocation of the natural world and an intriguing exploration of the concept of time." - Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
