Life was very ordinary for eleven-year-old Robyn Silver. The often-ignored middle child in a big family, the most excitement she had was the dash to the dinner table to reach the last slice of pizza. Until... she begins to see creepy creatures around her town - creatures that are invisible to everyone else.
When her school is forced to decamp to mysterious Grimdean House and she meets its equally mysterious owner, Mr Cryptorum, Robyn finds herself catapulted headfirst into an extraordinary adventure - with more excitement than she could possibly have imagined. Be careful what you wish for...
Robyn Silver: The Midnight Chimes was published this autumn! Here are some quotes from reviews of the book:
"Paula has an eviable talent in telling a non-stop action adventure, and quickly portrays the world Robyn is living in. With the strange creatures and mysterious events, I think this book would appeal to fans of Harry Potter andThe Spiderwick Chronicles." - @hellopipski's blog https://hellopipski.wordpress.com/2016/08/30/robyn-silver-the-midnight-chimes-by-paula-harrison/
"I enjoyed the book a lot and found it difficult to leave. After finishing the final page, I instantly wanted a sequel." - Wonderfully Bookish https://wonderfullybookish.co.uk/robyn-silver-paula-harrison/
"it was one of those books that just makes you wish you were a child again" - Heather Reviews https://heatherreviews.com/2016/09/04/blog-tour-new-release-book-review-robyn-silver-the-midnight-chimes-by-paula-harrison/
"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" - Book Lover Jo https://bookloverjo.wordpress.com/2016/08/29/robyn-silver-the-midnight-chimes-paula-harrison/
"If you'd like to learn how to fight vampires using garlic butter and a baguette then this is the book for you. The Midnight Chimes is the first book in a brand new series and I for one cannot wait to plunge into more adventures with the Bat Club and hopefully see more of the stunning illustrations by Renee Kurilla." - The Bookish Outsider http://bookishoutsider.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/robyn-silver-midnight-chimes-paula.html
The boldest, brightest new heroine is back: and Robyn Silver's life hasn't got any quieter since defeating the evil vampire Pearl in The Midnight Chimes. She's now a fully fledged Chime Child and monster-hunter-in-training alongside best friends Aiden and Nora.
The three suddenly start seeing nightmares - in the form of black beetles - appear around town. Who wants the people of Grimdean to be losing sleep - and why?
