Join Charlie Bone as he discovers the truth about the Red King, and the key to his own past...The Bloors are gathering their evil forces - thieves, poisoners, kidnappers, swindlers and even murderers from Piminy Street. And Lord Grimwald, Dagbert's father, is enlisted to drown Charlie's father and mother on their second honeymoon using his magical Sea Globe. It looks like Charlie's only hope might be the mysterious Red Knight. But who is he? And can he help Charlie defeat the Bloors once and for all?

Review

"'Charlie Bone is dark, funny, crackling with magic. It's a long time since I've been so absorbed in a story' Artemis Cooper; 'A fast-moving, dialogue-driven romp with plenty of cliff-hangers' Bookseller 'The story is lively, accomplished and dramatic and the writing has an engaging directness and warmth' Helen Dunmore, Daily Telegraph; 'Addicts of Jenny Nimmo, of whom I'm proud to be numbered, will rush to buy The Time Twister... Classic Nimmo territory' Independent 'There's an excitement and originality about her writing in both the words she uses and the stories she tells that make her books a constant delight' Julia Eccleshare, Books for Keeps; 'Another irresistible volume of Jenny Nimmo's excellent and highly acclaimed series' Waterstones Quarterly "This book has been far the best I have read all year! The imaginary plot was full of adrenalin and excitement. All five books have been fantastic! You must read it!!!!!!!!!!" Melika, 11" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Jenny Nimmo lives in a converted watermill in Wales. Her husband, David, is a painter and print-maker, and all three of her children speak Welsh fluently. She finds Wales, a land of legends, a very inspiring place to live. For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books. She feels passionately that every child should have access to as many books as they want. Jenny enjoys writing about magic because it is inexplicable and unpredictable, and anything can happen. In 1986 her book, The Snow Spider, won the Smarties Grand Prix, and in 1987 it was awarded the Tirnan-Og by the Welsh Arts Council. The Rinaldi Ring was chosen as Guardian Book of the Week and was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal and received a commendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice!! :D March 16 2010
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have loved this series for a very long time, and I continue to do so! I am a bit upset that this series has ended, because these books mean a lot to me. In the final installment of the Children of the Red King series, Count Harken returns. I don't want to give it all away; you have to read it! The only thing was that I felt the ending was a little bit rushed. When I got to the end (in like 1 1/2 hours or so...I was excited), I was like "Oh, that's it?" I guess I was just expecting a bit more in the end. Otherwise, this book is great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Charlie Bone and the Red Knight Oct. 9 2009
By Debra A. Arreguin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read this series, because I am giving them to my Grandson for Christmas. I found the ALL very entertaining and I think any child to adult would love them. This one is the final book in the series of the Red King. It needed to wrap-up the story line and did a very excellent job.

I would recommend this book for everyone .... boys and girls children to adults. (easy reading)

3.0 out of 5 stars Up Until the End Aug. 8 2011
By pandagurl77 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I was in love with this book. It was everything I wanted the final Charlie Bone book to be. Up until the end. Up until the very last chapter. Up until the very last sentence. Up until the very unsatisfactory ending. Don't get me wrong. The book is great. But all the ending does is to leave you wanting for more, which is a VERY bad thing to do, considering that this is THE FINAL BOOK. So yes, the only reason I am giving this book 3 stars instead of 5 is because of the ending. The ending of the ending. :(

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat padded June 7 2010
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Charlie Bone series comes to its second conclusion in this book. The Bone series was originally intended to end after book 5 and indeed that book has a completely satisfying ending to the series. After book 5 the focus was intended to shift away from Charlie to other characters. Plans were changed and Charlie remained the focus. It was then intended that there be three additional books. The present book is the last and I regret to report somewhat of a disappointment.

Unlike other books in the series Charlie Bone and the Red Knight can't really be read as a stand alone book; it is actually the second part of Charlie Bone and the Shadow, the previous book in the series. One gets the impression that the story was expanded to fill two books and as a consequence feels somewhat padded. This is especially true of Charlie Bone and the Red Knight. Unlike other books in the series the various subplots don't really seem to gel together. Author Nimmo appears to be just tying up plot threads or introducing other twists just to fill pages. The most egregious example is the Olivia subplot. It just doesn't add much to the overall story.

The big climax itself had too much in common with the climax of book 5 to really be completely satisfying. Saying anything more would give too much away. One thing that can be said is that Nimmo has left much less to pick up on if she decides to continue the series than she did after book 5.

All that said I don't want to leave the impression that this is a bad book. It's not. I recommend it to kids of all ages as they say. If you're new to the series please start with the first book and work forward.

This book was a great read and a great ending to the series. It wraps up the storyline well and leaves you with a smile on your face! I started reading the series to see if my girls would be interested and couldn't put them down! This was the perfect ending!
