Children's Literature - Toni Jourdan
The sixteen towers of the Red Castle are no longer safe. Even with the wizards vanishing spell making it invisible to outsiders, the Red King, Timoken, his wife, Berenice and their nine children realize there is a trouble from within the castle’s walls. As a baby, Timoken’s mother placed a web from the last moon spider around him, giving him immortality and many extraordinary powers. As a child, Timoken and his sister, Zobaydan moved to Britain along with his camel, Gabar. They have kept to themselves in the northern forests, knowing that if the King of England knew of their whereabouts, he would feel threatened and start a war. But jealousies can start up anywhere. Petrello, age ten, sees the sibling rivalry that is building up. Because of their father’s powers, each child develops their own unique power at its own unique timing. Petrello is afraid he will never develop a power. Borlath, the eldest, burns objects with his touch. Amadis can talk to animals, Olga can move objects, and even Cafal changes into a were-beast. Life is idyllic until one day when the bellringer is abducted and the family’s castle is suddenly under siege. Who can they trust? Who could have stolen the seeing stone? Petrello feels helpless. What can he do to help his family and what strangeness is happening to his brother, Tolomeo? An exciting installment in the “Red King” series. The magic, the characters and the many amazing animals, like the leopards and their golden powers, make for quite a page turner. My favorite special relationship is between Gabar, the camel and the dragon, Enid Lots of adventure woven into a wonderful family tale of how important relationships can be. Reviewer: Toni Jourdan; Ages 8 to 12.

    Only One Problem

    While I loved the book and I loved the ending I had only one problem. The book before this one talked about how the Red King and his friends are still eleven and twelve year old kids and in the end(don't read any further if you haven't read the second book) Berie(the nick name for Bernice) the Red King and the rest of their friens unite after Berie finds a baby boy that is the grandson of one of their protecters a man named Erie(can't quite remember if his name is Erie because it's been a while since I have read the book so somebody please correct me if I am wrong) the magician.(Do not keep reading if you have not read the third book which is the book I am reviewing right now) but all of a sudden in the third book they fast forward the story by more then a decade and make the story be focused on the Red King's children of which whom we barely know about from the Charlie Bone series. Don't you'll think that's a bit wierd? I mean why call it Chronicles of the Red King if you don't focus it mainly on the Red King? You know what I mean? I don't know maybe it only bothers me because I've given more thought to it or maybe it it only bothers me because it was to abrubt for my liking. After all it was only two books and all of a sudden the Red King aged more then a decade. Personally I feel like it would have been better if the author divided it into seasons like the 39 clues where the books are divided by each battle where the first few books are divided into a section called the clue hunt and then the next few books are called Cahills vs Vespers and the next and final few books are called Unstoppable, which by the way, isn't over yet if you want to start reading the first part of the series. It makes the series more interesting because with each major villain they divide it into a series where the characters age a little bit so the readers aren't like, "What the?! I could have sworn that in the last book the characters were kids!"
    The author should gave done that so the series didn't start and end so abruptly. It's a good series but I felt like she could have continued it to answer questions like,"What do the children of the Red King do in the futer."All though I guess she feels she answered those questions in the Charlie Bone series. But this book series was just to short! But let me stop critisizing and point out some good things. I like how she brought Charlie Bone in the series by using his time travel abilities even though Charlie lives hundreds if years in the futer. That was a good effect. I also like the plot of the story and how she talks more about the Children of the Red King's supernatural powers and how they inherited them from the King. That's all the opinions I have and anyone who reads this review I welcome helpful critisizim. But if you are a fan don't be like,"Shut up! There is nothing wrong with the series!" And start an online fight because of my opinions. Because while I have my own opinions yoy have yours, so I hope you will respect mine as I respect yours. So anybody who reads this review I hope you liked it and with your review please tell me if you liked mine and feel free to point out any points or mistakes I may have missed or forgotten to mention. See ya!
    -from blacksparrow87 a sixth grader who loves
    to read books.
    P.S I highly recomend for middle grade readers and mature young readers to read the 39 clues, spirit animals,and infinity ring.
