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.

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)

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!

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. :(
A fitting end to a great series Aug. 16 2010
By Cheryl A. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This review refers to the audio version.

This seems to be the last in the Charlie Bone "Children of the Red King" young adult fantasy series, and it was definitely a winner with all of the loose ends tied up nicely. Charlie's parents are still off on their second honeymoon, his friend Billy Raven has been captured by the evil enchanter Harken and trapped in Badlock, and Charlie must find a way to rescue him--and then discovers that his parents may be in danger as "Dagbert the Drowner's" father is in town, probably to do harm to the Bones by causing a disturbance in the sea.

Charlie and his friends are also looking for a box that holds the Red King's true will, which leaves his true heir (believed to be Billy Raven, NOT Ezekiel Bloor!) as the owner of Bloor's Academy as well as much other property and wealth. Charlie and his friends are fighting the evil heirs of the Red King with all their magic and might on several fronts, and are helped in the background by the Red Knight--a mysteries figure that no one knows the identity of. As all the different threads begin coming together towards an exciting conclusion, Charlie and his friends' lives are hanging in the balance.

Very well done, enjoyable end to this series, although the actual end itself was perhaps a bit rushed. I'm now going to have to seek out more books by this author, as she's got a couple of other series that were written before this one. Highly recommended, but do read these in order, or they won't make much sense.
Great finish to a great series Feb. 2 2011

I am an adult who reads as many kids' book as adult books, and really enjoyed this series. My teenage niece did also. The characters are fun - a boy that can travel into pictures, one that controls weather, and one who can call up his ancestors. My favorite is one that blows up lights as he passes underneath them.
This is a good series for kids that might not be ready for the deadly endings of Harry Potter. Characters were fun and had more interesting "endowments" than simply being wizards or wiches. I enjoyed Harry Potter and don't agree with complaints about this being a bad imitation. About the only thing they share is the good vs. bad theme. Note - they should be read in order.
