"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!

Charlie Bone and the Red Knight, by Jenny Nimmo. The conclusion to this wonderful children's series. Filled with the usual cast of characters, magic and adventure, this last book earns the same high marks as previous works. The basic plot is good vs. evil at a school for the magically gifted. Time travel, shape-changing, ancestral ghosts, power over water -- each child has a special talent and uses it to fight to save their home. The end felt a little rushed, as all the pieces fell into place domino-style, but just a minor criticism. Read Out Loud with child #2. Four stars.

This was a satisfying end to the series, but felt like it was a bit slim in story. Primarily this novel was about the final wrap-up of all the story lines that have twined through the last seven novels. I was pleased to see that Charlie's father didn't just abandon him in the face of the dangers that were swirling around the children of the Red King. One thing I liked about this series was how people could change - they could start out on the "bad" side and then switch to the "good" side.

The eighth and final book in the Charlie Bone series was full of surprises. I noticed that the book is the darkest one in the series. Dark forces such as Lord Grimwald and the knight ally themselves with the Bloors in order to find a will. The book is so dark that during one scene, Maisie tells Charlie that he can't go visiting friends due to recent activity. It's not until Charlie convinces Uncle Patton to accompany him, he is allowed to go. I also noticed that Charlie is more assertive. In one of the early chapters, Charlie opens the dorm window and refuses to close it and refusing to listen to and take orders from Dagbert Endless and his cronies. It's also amazing that all eight books have taken place within a two year time span, showing Charlie's growth and development. Jenny Nimmo's writing style increased in Charlie Bone and the Red Knight. While the series is geared for children ages seven to 10, this book is more for the elder of that range. In this exciting conclusion, fans will discover the answer to several questions: Why did the Bloors keep Billy Raven a prisoner? Why did Grandma Bone (and her sisters and the rest of the Bloors) want Lyell Bone (Charlie's father) to remain hidden?
