Heart-stopping fantasy from the Costa-shortlisted and critically acclaimed author of the bestselling The Midnight Guardians.

Step into a world of faerie tricks and hidden danger... When an evil faerie steals Yanni's baby sister and swaps her for a Changeling, Yanni is swept into a dangerous race against time to get her back.
For faeries delight in tricks and rescuing her won't be easy. With the help of his cousin, Amy, and the reluctant Changeling, Yanni must travel to goblin palaces and battle-swept oceans, discovering ancient treasures and secrets along the way. Yanni will need every drop of courage and even a few tricks of his own, if he's to outwit the faerie and save his sister...

Ross Montgomery brings the magical world of British folklore to life in this contemporary fantasy novel. Bursting with Ross's trademark charm, humour and heart, and with echoes of David Bowie's Labyrinth, The Chime Seekers is perfect reading for fans of Emma Carroll, Piers Torday and David Solomons.


The Chime Seekers grip me that keeps my attention all the time. I’m so excited for the adventure especially knowing that this has a faerie in it!

Yanni felt sad after his sister's birth. He felt like his parents doesn't pay attention to him like they used to be. With moving to a new town, he even feels devastated about it. Right on the night of Halloween, when his parents went out for anniversary dinner. They left him to babysit his sister along with his cousin and he make a wish that he should not in the first place.

An evil faerie pay a visit to his house and took away his sister. For that, along with his cousin, they both are on a mission to rescue his sister which means he needs to enter the other side of the world. He has to battle the tricks that have been thrown at him in other to save his sister also explore the fae world.

It is nail-biting along the way following the adventure/battle to rescue Yanni's sister. I was enchanted by the story, got tricked by the evil fae, and heartwarming at the end. Love the friendship development in this book. It's really a fantastic story! Enjoy it so much!
