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 race 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.

"Montgomery's latest is an enthralling, Narnia-flavoured novel with the folkloric feel of a Christmas classic." —Guardian

"The Midnight Guardians is torch-under-the-duvet, can't-stop-reading magic. British folklore rebooted … in an edge-of-your-seat, heart-filled search for hope in the darkest hour." —Piers Torday

"I inhaled this wonderful book in one sitting ... humour, beautiful writing, heartbreak, hope, and a fat badger in a waistcoat. I'll be recommending it to everyone." —Katya Balen

"Spectacular. A story of real and rare power—The Midnight Guardians is one of the best books I've read in years." —Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of Julia and the Shark
