First Line Friday – 2 September 2022

FLF Banner 2

First Lines Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

Here’s how it works!

“Tonight is the darkest night of the year.”

The Midnight Guardians by Ross Montgomery

This is the Middle Grade Marvels pick of the month for September! I haven’t started it yet, but I’m looking forward to diving into it soon and reading along with the rest of the book club.

Goodreads Synopsis: 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.
