The Scar Gatherer is a series of seven time-travel adventures for 8 to 12 year olds, spanning seven periods in British history, from Roman times up to the Second World War.
The second book, Saving the Unicorn's Horn, takes Joe back to the Viking age.
What can you do when your closest friend lives hundreds of years away?
Joe Hopkins is staying in York for October half-term. He hasn't seen Lucy since the beginning of September and he's really missing her.
But when at last he slips through time again, he's alarmed to find himself in a different world altogether. This isn't Roman Britain. It's Jorvik, in the age of the Vikings.
Joe is relieved to discover that Lucy is here, but dismayed that his former enemy seems to be in this new world too. Can Joe protect Lucy from harm this time, and stop the prophecy of the unicorn's horn from coming true?
“One measure of a good read is the pleasure felt on discovering that there is a sequel, and these stories meet that criterion."
