Hot on the heels of Vulgar the Viking and the Terrible Talent Show, today we have our SECOND Kindle Daily Deal, with Christopher Edge’s fantastic Shadows of the Silver Screen – the second book in the Twelve Minutes to Midnight trilogy. You can buy the Kindle editon, just 99p for today only, here.
The year is 1900, and in Shadows of the Silver Screen, a mysterious filmmaker approaches The Penny Dreadful with a proposal to turn Montgomery Flinch’s sinister stories into motion pictures. With Monty installed as the star of his production, filming begins but is plagued by a series of strange and frightening events. As Monty pleads with Penny to help him, she is drawn into the mystery, but soon finds herself trapped in a nightmare penned by her own hand. Can Penny uncover the filmmaker’s dark secret before it’s too late?
An absolute must for fans of Philip Reeve, Marcus Sedgwick and Anthony Horowitz, The Telegraph called Shadows of the Silver Screen “a serious (and playful) intelligent historical thriller for children.” You can read the first chapter for free below, or explore the series from the start with Twelve Minutes to Midnight, here.
