Second 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.
Going forward, each book in the Tregarthur Series will involve travel to a different time, where the group has to survive using skills and knowledge they have gained from their old life. This first book involves travel to prehistoric times and basic survival skills such as hunting, cooking, and finding shelter. Throughout the series the mystery of the Tregarthur family haunts them as they try to deal with their own personal problems of dysfunctional families and the trials of growing up.
After escaping their troubles at home, Alvin and Jenna believed they were safe. They hadn’t counted on the return of Zach, ex-school bully turned murderer and his caveman army. Forced through the tunnel they find themselves back on Dartmoor – except that this is definitely not the 21st century.
Struggling to understand the mysteries of the tunnel will they ever return to a safe time and place? Alvin failed to keep Miss Tregarthur’s promise. Now reaching across time, it seems Miss Tregarthur will have her revenge.
A violent heat came from the tunnel walls.
