In the 6th book, Charile's mission is to save the were-beast Asa. But FIRST he has to FINDS him before he can save him. To make things worst, there's a new kid at Bloor's whose powers is to drown people. And to make matters EVEN WORST, Billy can't communicate with animals any longer. This is a truly amazing book, I only started reading it today but I'm already done! I just COULDNT PUT THE BOOK DOWN!!! In lots of ways Charlie Bone is a lot like Harry Potter, I'm suprised I didn't realize this sooner. I'm dying to read the 7th book, two thumbs up for Jenny Nimmo!… (more)

In this story, Charlie must rescue Asa, who is stuck somewhere in the dark in his animal form. Charlie is opposed by a new kid at school with the power to manipulate water. To make matters worse, Cook's family was destroyed by the new boy's father when she refused his marriage proposal years ago, so she is scared and not as much help as usual. Consistently good series. My daughter gives it a five.… (more)

Charlie does something brave for someone who had done the same for him. Despite the changes in his family, Charlie is still mostly on his own with only the assistance of his friends in his pursuit of right. While there is an overarching storyline, I get the feeling that even if that story is resolved, the on-going battle between 'good' and 'bad' descendants of the Red King will continue. I'm curious to see how Ms. Nimmo will end this series.… (more)

The Charlie Bone series will keep those 'when is the next Potter book coming out' jitters at bay. Sorry Ms Nimmo but they just aren't as good. They seem a little more loosly written, not quite as polished. And I can't believe someone hasn't been sued for plagerism. There is a castle that serves as a school, evil teachers/students, nasty aunts, talking pictures, a Pettigrew and many other similarities.
Don't get me wrong, they were entertaining. Just missing something.

Another amazing book in the series of the Children of the Red King series. Chalie Bone finally finds his father and is now trying to save one of the endowed, a were-beast named Asa. He runs into new enemies and makes new allies. This book was exciting and suspenceful. I can't wait for another book by Jenny Nimmo.

Is this series going anywhere? My son highly recommends it, but so far it's doing nothing for me....

Charlie and his friends must rescue an old enemy in this book. Asa has been kidnapped for joining the "other side." Charlie and all of his friends bind together to save him.
