Well, our debate for where Sammy Carter should go next – the tombs of Ancient Egypt, or Sherwood Forest at the time of Robin Hood – is certainly hotting up on Facebook; if you haven’t already let us know where you’d like Sammy to go, check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/piatkusfiction
Not wanting to sway you, but two fans of the series in the Piatkus Fiction team have very definite ideas of where they’d like the next story to be set . . .
Dom – Ancient Egypt
If there’s one thing I like, it’s a rollicking, no-holds-barred tomb-raiding adventure. Maybe it’s from growing up on a healthy diet of The Mummy and Lara Croft, but for me there’s something irresistibly creepy about a sepulchral lair where anything is possible, and danger’s always lurking in the shadows. And if there’s one woman who can thrive in this kind of environment, it’s Sammy.
Throw one of the greatest love stories in history – that of Antony and Cleopatra – into the mix and I’m sold: that’s why I’d like to see Samantha Carter go back in time to kick some Ancient Egyptian vampire butt.
Anna – Sherwood Forest
I’ve always been a huge fan of Robin Hood, in fact the fox from the Disney version was my very first crush (oh stop looking disapproving, I know I’m not the only one). The brave band of rebels against the brilliantly evil Sheriff and false King – it’s a classic story I love in all its incarnations, from the surprisingly dark original book to pretty much everything about Kevin Costner vs Alan Rickman. I can’t wait to see Sammy in Sherwood and I think Tim could have so much fun within Robin Hood’s world. To be honest though, the most important reason that Sammy should go to Sherwood Forest is as follows: Harry + green tights. Enough said.

The second addictive adventure in Tim O'Rourke's acclaimed Sammy Carter series
It's been a year since Samantha Carter blasted back to 1888, barely escaping with her life. Now, returned to present-day London with only her nymphomaniac flatmate for company, she's starting to believe that everything - the blood-curdling vampires, her strange and sudden skills with a gun, even her mysterious lover Harry - was nothing but a dream.
Just when Sammy is about to lose all hope that her friends and memories were real, it finally happens again. This time she's pulled back to a city she does not recognise: a London in the grip of a terrible plague, where death haunts the night and a deeper, darker threat lurks underground, waiting for its chance . . .
Fighting side by side with her friends once again, Sammy encounters horrors beyond her imagining; yet what really terrifies her are the endless questions, one most of all: who is she really? Torn between the life she longs for and the life she can believe in, Sammy must decide whether she's brave enough to risk everything, even her heart . . .
