Chainbreaker

Please note that this review may contain spoilers for Timekeeper. You can read my review of this novel [here].

Chainbreaker was written by Tara Sim and first published in 2018. It is the second novel of the Timekeeper series and follows on shortly after Timekeeper (2016) left off, with Danny having embraced his calling as Enfield’s resident mechanic. A third instalment – Firestarter – is planned for release at the end of this year.

Danny Hart is the happiest that he has been in years. His father has been rescued and his relationship with his mother has been restored. Better still, he now lives in Enfield and so is able to spend every day in the clock tower with Colton. The danger of the previous few months seems to finally be far behind them. That is, until a clock tower in India is bombed.

Although the tower is completely destroyed, miraculously time continues to flow in the surrounding area. The guild leader expresses a desire for Danny and Daphne to travel to India to investigate, but Danny is at first reluctant to do so. He has heard that rioting in India makes it dangerous for an Englishman to travel there and he is concerned what Colton would do if anything were to happen to him.

Yet, as a second tower is destroyed, Danny realises that he has no choice if he wishes to learn what is happening and protect the clock spirits from harm. As Danny begins to investigate the ruins, he soon learns that the terrorist attacks are simply a reaction to British rule. Meanwhile, back in England, Colton has begun to dream of a mysterious youth named Castor. As his visions grow more vivid, he begins to uncover more about the history of the clock towers and the dark secrets that they hold…
