I love the Charlie Bone series! It fills that Harry Potter void. Great for kids (and adults who love juv. fiction). Imaginative and fun!

This is the 5th book in a series, and I do not recommend reading it without reading the first 4, but that said I believe it to be the best of the series. It almost reads like the end of the series, as many dangling threads are wrapped up in this one, especially the long-obvious location of Charlie's father. It will be interesting to see where Ms. Nimmo goes with the next book in the series (due out in 2008, I believe)!

More of the Red King's history is revealed in this fifth book of the series. Sharp readers will have already figured out the fate (and whereabouts) of Charlie's father long before the reveal.

This is part 5 of a wonderful series that is only somewhat like Harry Potter. There is school and wizardry, but that's really the only sameness involved. This well written series certainly can stand toe to toe with any other member of that genre! A great read and I recommend you start with #1

One of the scarier but ultimately more satisfying books in the series. I enjoyed reading this with my 9-year-old son.
