A full-length compilation of Deeper Realms instalments 1 – 4 with two new stories!

From across the globe come tales of strange creatures and phenomena which science is hard pressed to explain, but when the mysterious Ravenna Friere walks into Dr Eve Wells’ life, the anxious young palaeontologist finds herself drawn into a world of terrifying answers.

From the frigid shores of Loch Ness, to the blazing deserts of Egypt, Ravenna leads Eve and fellow time traveller, curator Polly Nightingale, on the trail of troubling anomalies which threaten the very integrity of reality. Alone on the Cornish moors, Eve comes face to face with a fabled creature set loose from the depths of the past; while in Cold War Britain, the emergence of a long dead virus presages events of almost biblical impossibility, when she and Ravenna find themselves in a valley of fabled sea serpents, fighting for their lives.

Drawing together four of Dr Eve Wells’ most notable adventures – plus a preview of the forthcoming novel Dinosaur Girl – this single volume provides an exciting window into Ian Roberts’ eclectic time travelling world.

“Eve Wells fought the urge to glance across the crowded student concourse. It was not the girl from the photograph, it couldn’t possibly be.
She took a deep breath, forcing herself to concentrate on the notes in front of her, but before she could stop herself, her eyes had darted to the figure by the window once more. It just couldn’t be her – and yet there she was: the same confident features, the same Mediterranean complexion.
She blinked a couple of times as if hoping the figment of her imagination would disappear; but the girl was still there, gazing lazily at her phone – dark eyes focused on the glowing screen. Eve looked briskly away trying to put the stranger out of her mind. But it was impossible.”

“Eve let out a slow breath, trying not to dwell on the horrible conclusion her mind kept leaping to: whatever had made the prints was massive – far bigger than any living feline.”

Phantom big cats: a moorland tale, urban legend or evidence of something darker?

Palaeontologist Eve Wells is less than impressed to find her weekend interrupted by enigmatic time traveller Ravenna Friere, but with a young zoologist missing on the Cornish Moors, the palaeo-artist quickly discovers she has walked into something far more dangerous than an unsolved hoax.

“‘You don’t seriously think ..!’ She felt her skin begin to crawl. Exposed to the virus. Her hands were beginning to tremble, but she ignored the sensation.

‘At first it will seem like you have a cold – a fever …’ she hardly seemed to hear.

Three friends, an inexplicable death and a deadly virus absent for twenty years.

With the mysterious death of a junior microbiologist in the late 1990’s, Dr Eve Wells and curator Polly Nightingale are drawn to post-cold war Britain, where only their intervention – and the guidance of time traveller Ravenna Friere – can halt a life threatening disease with the potential to decimate the present.

“‘So – what do you think we are dealing with here?’

‘Dealing with?’ Professor Saraceni said lightly, ‘why a mystery of almost biblical proportions – the utterly impossible.’ Eve swallowed nervously as he weighted the tarp against the breeze – the bones were unmistakably human.”

The legend of God’s Mirror, a valley of long-dead sea monsters, and an archaeological mystery of almost biblical impossibility.

With the discovery of human bones in a remote Egyptian dig site, Dr Eve Wells finds herself drawn into a palaeontological conundrum too incredible to keep buried. With a team of evolutionary specialist’s eager to make sense of the valley’s secrets, she and time traveller Ravenna Friere find themselves in a race to contain the prehistoric past, before their own incredible secret is blown wide-open.

Join Eve and Ravenna once more in this thrilling final instalment of Deeper Realms volume one.

“‘Go,’ she hissed, fighting the fear which occupied her mind, ‘go get Adam …’ She kept her voice low and measured, little more than a whisper, her eyes locked on the huge tapering muzzle.”

With her fiancé’s life in danger, palaeontologist Eve Wells finds herself forced once more to aid the enigmatic Ravenna Friere, travelling to the jungles of West Africa to investigate a team of scientists hunting a legendary creature.

But the Nandi Bear is no mere African folk-tale, and as Eve begins to suspect that at least one long extinct creature still roams the ancient woodland, she finds herself plunged into a series of terrifying events, which both shake her faith in her time travelling companion, and leave her wondering at the identity of the enigmatic woman who steps in to save her.

“Her voice seemed to lose its power, her eyes drawn up to the towering prow, transfixed by the haze of light around the forward lamps, the damp sheen of spray on the glistening hull. ‘It’s going to hit us!’ she found herself hissing as pure terror seemed to sap her strength.”

A passenger liner destined for destruction, a mysterious saboteur, and deadly secret which could change the course of the First World War.

When museum curator Polly Nightingale accompanies time traveller Ravenna Friere on a mission to the Irish Sea, she has little idea that her intrusion into the Edwardian era will take a truly deadly turn. Trapped on board the five star liner RMS Lusitania, Polly finds herself in a race to make sense of the threat to the wartime vessel; while the troubling discovery that her friend Dr Eve Wells is also aboard – summoned by a mysterious young woman claiming to expose Ravenna’s motives – leads to an ethical dilemma which could alter the course of world history.
