Schoolboy time-traveller Jack Christie is thrown back to 1940s Nazi-occupied France. With the Battle of Britain and the German Vengeance programme underway, the Second World War is at a crucial point. Jack and his best friend Angus take a more senior role in VIGIL's attempts to prevent intervention in history, attempting to stop the Revisionists from their highly volatile nuclear plan to stop the war. With spitfire dogfights, jeep races and thrilling chases, the boys have their most hair-raising adventure yet, including involvement in an assassination attempt on Hitler himself. Just as all seems lost, Jack's father returns and a nuclear disaster is averted in the nick of time.

In the latest instalment of the Jack Christie novels, there is no short of action and adventure for Jack and his good friend Angus. When VIGIL security is breached, the boys have no option but to travel back in time again – this time landing themselves smack bang in the Second World War.

Jack and Angus find themselves involved in an assassination attempt of Hitler, an underground rebel base in Paris and an extremely risky rescue mission. The boys get themselves in more than a few sticky situations, but the action is nicely balanced by the humour, which is not in short supply.

Day of Vengeance was an extremely enjoyable read. It is very well written, easily throwing the reader into the excitement and danger alongside Angus and Jack. What I enjoyed most, was the connections to the future, and how, unwittingly, the boys contributed to certain things in their present time.

This is a book that can be enjoyed by everyone – boys, girls and adults alike. I cannot wait to see where the author will take Jack and Angus, and me also of course, on their next adventure.
