The Chime Seekers is a magical story of an unusual world that exists alongside our own. A world where faeries rule and nothing quite makes sense. On nights when the veil between this world and our own is thin, anything can happen. Darkness creeps in, tricks are played, babies stolen and lives changed.
When Yanni moves to Fallow Hall, he hates everything about it. The house, the town, the fact that his parents seem to care more about his baby sister than him. Life is terrible. Yanni’s anger grows and this flawed main character wishes for the unthinkable, not expecting someone to show up who will actually do everything he’s secretly dreaming of.
Realising his horrible mistakes, Yanni and his cousin, Amy, must set off on a quest to defeat an evil faerie and put everything back the way it was before. They face challenges at every turn in this exciting story of goblins, magical necklaces, changelings, talking ravens and grumpy signposts. The power of love proves stronger than the power of lies and tricks – and there is nothing more powerful than a name.
The Chime Seekers is the perfect story for anyone who loves the idea of faeries living alongside us. Those who have heard their music and spotted a magical creature or two at twilight will recognise many of the characters in this brilliant tale (and may just try some of the protective charms themselves).
