Book 5 in the Tregarthur’s Series
The Tregarthur’s Series, was inspired by the Ten Tors Challenge, a two day annual event organised by the Army, for 2,400 teenagers to visit ten tors across Dartmoor, UK. A modern day Lord of the Flies, the books follow a group of teenagers who find themselves cut off from the adult world in an unfamiliar environment. It deals with themes pertinent to the lives of young adults, such as bullying, leadership, grief, and friendship, whilst at the same time having a page turning story line full of adventure and mystery.
Each book in the series involves travel to a different time, where the group has to survive using skills and knowledge they have gained from their old life. On a journey from the prehistoric age of the Neanderthals to the 14th century Black Death; from the Convict ships of the 18th century to the more recent discoveries of Marie Curie, the group are drawn back to the strange stones of Dartmoor.
In the final book, Tregarthur’s Legacy, the remaining members of the group are caught up in a never ending war that is raging across a WWI stricken France. In this explosion of past events, Mellanby has yet again delivered a powerful story with themes pertinent to young adults intertwined with mystery, historical fact and adventure that has delighted his growing readership.
