Timoken is a prince born in a secret kingdom. At his birth, a forest jinni bestows magical gifts upon him: a cloak made by the last moon spider and a potion called Alixir.

I am a huge Charlie Bone fan and I can't wait for this to come out. Jenny Nimmo is a brilliant authoress who really knows how to capture a childs attention (I read them at age ten {well except for book eight which came out last year}_ I'm twelve and now I've read most of Nimmo's work.) Although I must say that sometimes she could have done better in how sha said things, (Ex.): Lucretia saton the sofa, and Lucretia said,. as opposed to a better form of: Lucretia sat on the sofa and said. But Nimmo is an excellent author and I'm sure I can't wait for the secret kingdom.
