Der Fantasyroman spielt in Greenwich, London.Die Hüter der Zeit sorgen dafür, dass die Zeit verrinnt und alles in geregelten Bahnen läuft. Dazu muss der amtierende Zeitmeister regelmäßig neue Zeitmesser herstellen und am Neujahrestag in Gang setzen. Doch als Tim kurz vor der Inbetriebnahme merkt, dass das Herz des Zeitmessers, der Tick, fehlt, ist die Aufregung groß. Würde das doch bedeuten, dass die Zeit für immer still steht.Die hinterhältigen Wrackas sind für den Diebstahl verantwortlich. Doch keiner der Hüter der Zeit kann in deren Welt. Nun ruht alle Hoffnung auf Snot, einem Wrackamädchen.Manchmal ist die Handlung etwas platt, z.B. als Tid gleich wenige Stunden nach dem Kennenlernen Snot sein größtes Geheimnis anvertraut. Aber das tut dem Gesamteindruck keinen Abbruch. Die Charktere werden nacheinander ausführlicher vorgestellt, so dass die Handlung immer komplexer wird. Auch wenn klar ist, dass die Mission gelingt, spannend zu lesen. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The Guardians look after time for all people. Humans always rush around claiming that they do not have enough time, but no one thinks of guarding it. The Guardians do this and in every region of the world there is one who protects time for us all. In Greenwich, it is Old Father Tim. When the Wreccas, who populate the Underneath (below ground), send Snot to steal the Tick, their only intention is to wreak havoc on the Guardians who live Topside. They don't expect Snot to find out that she feels more at home Topside and that she really rather likes Tid (Old Father Tim's grandson) who she has to trick. And little do they know that without the Tick, time will stop forever. 10 yrs+… (more)
