It is the year 1258. Europe is cloaked in the Dark Age while the great city of Baghdad has become a centre of learning for scholars, merchants and explorers. It is in this foreign Arab world, that Dak, Sera and Riq must now navigate the narrow alleyways and exotic spice and rug markets to identify SQ Agents from Hystorians and fulfil their next mission. They must prevent a great library, The House of Wisdom, from being destroyed by the enemy.

In their ‘own time’, the children's world is being split apart by cataclysmic events, caused by rips in history. It is up to them to travel time, repairing these gaps where they can. Along their journey Sera, Dak and Riq are helped by Hystorians, custodians of true history. But there are also SQ Agents at every turn, desperate to prevent the children from setting history straight.

Cave of Wonders is the fifth book in the time travelling, multi-platformed adventure series, Infinity Ring. Each book is written by a different author and continues the adventure undertaken by three children in an effort to save the world. There is a top secret clue, hidden inside the cover of the book, which may be opened at the conclusion of the story. This clue gives access to a new adventure awaiting the reader on 

This fast paced, time travelling adventure series is a good one for eight to fourteen year olds.
