Whilst out and about on our Highlights of Cambridge tour, you’ll be swept up in a gripping story, brought to life by our top-notch writers:

You live in medieval Britain, under the rule of the Tudors. As a student at Cambridge, you joined a secret society, "The Gentle Chroniclers", which fights to preserve prohibited books deemed revolutionary by the King.

Your mission is to find "Call to Uprising", a volume which Rosalynd, a fellow member, had hidden before being captured and extorted its approximate location. 

Now that the hiding place has been revealed to the King’s minions, you are the only hope to reach the book before them.
