Free Sample

Following an initiation test to steal a priceless Fabergé egg, Kit Marlowe finds himself enrolled in a spy school for the descendants of famous families, based in the heart of London. It turns out his father’s ‘office job’ is a cover – he’s actually a spy – and Kit’s whole family have been lying to him about their past. As the school term starts, Kit joins his friends – Abigail Newton, Max Faraday, Eddie Austen and Leila Wedgewood – to learn all there is to know about espionage. His language skills may be unparallelled, but can he pass cryptanalysis, camouflage, hacking and forgery lessons? And as if school wasn't interesting enough, Kit manages to fall foul of a Russian oligarch, Mikhail Pasternak, after stealing a vial of Doomsday bugs which was hidden inside the jewel Kit was forced to steal. When Kit learns that Pasternak plans to indoctrinate leading figures from around the world to create a legion of death, he chooses to thwart the Russian and pits himself against a very dangerous and frightening adversary. In a thrilling climax, Kit faces Russian assassins that have broken into the school looking for Kit and the bugs. The game is on and Kit needs all his new skills to save his own life and those of his closest friends... C A Lockwood's debut novel takes a light-hearted and humorous look at the perils of being a not-so-normal teenager. Taking inspiration from Jonathan Stroud's Lockwood and Co. novels and Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series, The Doomsday Bug is the first of a trilogy of fast-paced thrillers that will appeal to readers aged 12 years and older.

America’s #1 radio talk-show host and multi-million-copy #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a book for young readers with a history teacher who travels back in time to have adventures with exceptional Americans.

MEET RUSH LIMBAUGH’S REALLY GOOD PAL, RUSH REVERE!

Okay, okay, my name’s really Rusty—but my friends call me Rush. Rush Revere. Because I’ve always been the #1 fan of the coolest colonial dude ever, Paul Revere. Talk about a rock star—this guy wanted to protect young America so badly, he rode through those bumpy, cobblestone-y streets shouting “the British are coming!” On a horse. Top of his lungs. Wind blowing, rain streaming...

Well, you get the picture. But what if you could get the real picture—by actually going back in time and seeing with your own eyes how our great country came to be? Meeting the people who made it all happen—people like you and me?

Hold on to your pointy triangle hats, because you can—with me, Rush Revere, seemingly ordinary substitute history teacher, as your tour guide across time! “How?” you ask? Well, there’s this portal. And a horse. My talking horse named Liberty. And—well, just trust me, I’ll get us there.

We’ll begin by joining a shipload of brave families journeying on the Mayflower in 1620. Yawn? I don’t think so. 1620 was a pretty awesome time, and you’ll experience exactly what they did on that rough, dangerous ocean crossing. Together, we’ll ask the pilgrims all our questions, find out how they live, join them at the first Thanksgiving, and much more.

So saddle up and let’s ride! Our exceptional nation is waiting to be discovered all over again by exceptional young patriots—like you!
