Mystery of the Night Watchers by A.M. Howell



This book is set in the Edwardian era. This time period is described very well, so I learnt that in 1910, people were getting used to modern luxuries that we take for granted. This book is about Halley’s Comet, which some were afraid of and some were delighted with. It is perfect for readers of 9-11 who are looking for a story filled with buried secrets and dark lies. As well as this, this book boasts a beautifully vindictive villain… By: Lupita (age 9). Rating: 4.5/5.
