The eighth and final instalment of the international best-selling series from Jenny Nimmo starring Charlie Bone.
An Academy for magic and special talents. A destiny unfulfilled. A secret legacy. Join Charlie Bone as he discovers the truth about the Red King, and the key to his own past . . .
The Bloors are gathering their evil forces ? thieves, poisoners, kidnappers, swindlers and even murderers from Piminy Street. And Lord Grimwald, Dagbert?s father, is enlisted to drown Charlie?s father and mother on their second honeymoon using his magical Sea Globe. It looks like Charlie?s only hope might be the mysterious Red Knight. But who is he? And can he help Charlie defeat the Bloors once and for all?
All the magical threads come together in this amazing finale to a hugely compelling series.
With nearly 5 million copies sold, Jenny Nimmo?s fantasy series is still charming generations of children over a decade after Charlie Bone was first printed.
