Blackford House than meets the eye And before they can entirely understand the strange world they’ve stumbled into Lucy and Oliver must join forces with a host of magical clock animals to defeat the Garr a vicious monster that not only wants Blackford House for itself but also seeks to destroy everything the Tinkers hold dear. Talking animals are always a tricky proposition for me but I found Watch Hollow to be a charming read with enough creepy overtones to make my horror jaded heart happyI started this as a buddy read with Jess from Storytime in the Stacks and swiftly found that I wanted to keep reading it This isn t a book you want to spread out over several days It s one you want to curl up with and blast throughOut of the two children that we follow for the story Lucy and Oliver I have to say that it was Oliver that stole my heart He s a sweet good natured boy that has been forced to grow up way too soon due to the fact that life can suck He s a good big brother to Lucy Lucy herself is young enough to see the magic in everything hot tempered and seems like she would be an absolute handful Not necessarily in a bad wayWhile I liked all the good guys in Watch Hollow I have to say that I found the Garr to be a bit much Not how he acted but how blatant he was about what he wanted Maybe for younger middle grade readers it ll be perfect though Subtlety isn t always their strong suit lord knowsThe pacing is fantastic I adored the characters I was supposed to like I found myself invested in seeing the clock get restored And did I mention how freaking cool the idea of a clock that runs an entire house is The end had me giving a mental cheer for the children and definitely warmed my blackened heart a bit Overall this was just a fun read told by a talented author and I hope I can get my middle grader as interested in it as I was
