Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Jenny Nimo's satisfying conclusion (Orchard, 2010) to the series features a missing will, evildoers attempting to thwart Charlie and his friends, and the hope provided by a mysterious Red Knight. All of the endowed will have to use their gifts to defeat the evil half of the Red King's descendants. Simon Jones gives each character a unique voice. Listeners must be familiar with the plots and characters from the previous seven books to understand the concluding title. Purchase only where demand for the series exists.—Ann Brownson, Eastern Illinois University, Charleston

"Charlie Bone and the Red Knight" is the last book of an interesting series. I must admit, many parts in the book went amiss for me because, with the wait so long in between each installment, I simply had forgotten some events and/or names. Don't get me wrong, though- it was a satisfying end to a series I have loved long since the release of the first book. I have always been rather talented in predicting the course of any book or movie, and such was the case with "CB+RK". I could foresee events that were written as if to surprise you, and this toned down the intrigue I felt throughout the book. However, it was still interesting and, for a lover of any of the other books, will be a joy to read.

"Charlie Bone and the Red Knight," by Jenny Nimmo is the eighth and final installment in the New York Times best-selling Children of the Red King series. One-of-a-kind characters, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and hair-rising action make this incredible adventure absolutely impossible to put down, sure to enthrall everyone who reads it! With an unexpected surprise at the end and a few tear-jerking moments, this book has an extremely satisfying ending in which all the problems are finally solved. All the magical threads come together in this powerful conclusion to an amazing series!
