The basement of the New York Circulating Material Repository is home to the mysterious Wells Bequest - powerful objects straight out of science fiction. Robots, rockets, submarines, a shrink ray - and a very famous time machine. And Leo Novikov is about to discover them all . . .
It was an evening like any other for Leo Novikov. That is until a miniature version of himself appears before his eyes . . . from the future! Not only that, he's riding on some kind of weird machine, with his arms wrapped around the hottest girl he's ever laid eyes on! He heads off to the New York Circulating Material Repository to do some research and meets Jaya, the girl from the future. Together they embark on a dangerous mission to save New York City . . . a mission that will take them to the other side of the world, and to the other side of time.
'It was brilliant seeing the story develop across different times and seeing famous objects in other books come to life in the magical library!' * Iona Mackay (Broughton High), Teen Titles *
