The Midnight Guardians

Author(s): Ross Montgomery

Middle Reader

Staff notes: There have been some stunning new releases in middle-grade fantasy lately, but The Midnight Guardians is a standout. Set during the London Blitz in WWII, Cole must rescue his sister with the help of his imaginary friends – a tiger, a badger and a knight – who may or may not be so imaginary after all. A blend of historical and fantasy fiction, The Midnight Guardians is ultimately about the power of hope. This is a great entry-point for readers interested in different historical and geographical settings, and the importance of learning history. A middle-grade fantasy full of myth and legend, set in England’s “darkest hour” during the Blitz in WW2, from a Costa-shortlisted author. Sometimes at the darkest hour, hope shines the brightest… When Col’s childhood imaginary friends come to life, he discovers a world where myths and legends are real. Accompanied by his guardians – a six-foot tiger, a badger in a waistcoat and a miniature knight – Col must travel to Blitz-bombed-London to save his sister. But there are darker forces at work, even than the Nazi bombings. Soon Col is pursued by the terrifying Midwinter King, who is determined to bring an eternal darkness down over everything.
