You know that saying ‘be careful what you wish for’ because sometimes when your wish comes true it isn’t exactly as you had imagined it turning out. Well, meet Robyn Silver who yearns to have a more exciting life, the kind of life where she would own her own swimming pool or win a lifetime supply of pizza. Unfortunately for Robyn the reality is the sudden appearance of creepy creatures around town which are invisible to everyone else and the mysterious destruction of her school, which throw her unexpectedly into an incredible adventure beyond the realms of her wildest dreams. Robyn is an ordinary girl forced into extraordinary circumstance by pure chance being born at the stroke of midnight has bestowed upon her special monster-hunting powers. Sometimes there is only so much excitement that a 10 year old can handle and so the story begins.
This action packed new adventure series from Paula Harrison had me intrigued from the moment I first set my eyes on the brilliantly bold cover from Renée Kurilla. Hinting at the danger and drama that lies beneath, it’s a wonderful tale stuffed full of monsters and adventure which will hold you in its grip from the moment you turn the first page. Paula takes you on a thrilling ride and provides plenty of edge of the seat moments to keep the reader engrossed in the story. Renée Kurilla’s illustrations are full of energy and capture the peril the Chimes are facing perfectly. I loved the addition of the glossary at the back ‘The Chime Monster Compendium’ is full of monster facts designed to terrify and amaze. A cracking new series, I’m thrilled that there is more adventures coming from Robyn Silver with the second book due in Autumn 2017.
