Writing as Jon Chant, Jon Kaneko-James brings Great Fire, a history-based urban fantasy for 9-12 year old readers.
Esteban was born with Chronomancy, magic that lets him control time. Visions are a normal thing for Esteban, until he’s dragged out of bed by a dream about his best friend Danny at the centre of a magical inferno. The Monument, the two hundred foot monument to the Great Fire of London, has been blasted apart and something has escaped from a prison made using the streets of the city of London itself.
With only the unbelievably bolshy and persistent Connie for help, Esteban has less than twenty four hours to find Danny and recapture the spirit that burned London: the Great Fire.
