The new school year at Bloor's Academy doesn't begin well for Charlie Bone and forebodes hardship for the endowed descendents of the Red King. Will Charlie find his father? As she has done in the previous three books, Jenny Nimmo melds remarkable comrades, adventure, and fantasy into a whirlwind outing. Simon Russell Beale continues as narrator for the series. His commanding voice brings authority and depth to the tale. His Charlie is ever determined, if sometimes scared or chagrined. His supporting cast stands out--a scheming Ezekiel, a comforting and majestic Uncle Yewbeam, and an ethereal Alice Angel. Beale's pacing keeps the listener on edge.
