When Lucy and Oliver Tinker and their father arrive in Watch Hollow, they have no idea that anything evil is afoot. They’ve been brought to this rundown home in this isolated small town by an offer from a mysterious stranger that’s too good for them to refuse. All Mr. Tinker needs to do is restore the house’s clock and fistfuls of gold coins are his to keep. But it doesn’t take long for Lucy and Oliver to realize that far more than the clock needs saving. It quickly becomes clear that both the magic within the house’s walls and the animal guardians that are charged with protecting it are in dire need of help.
