The second book in the stunning repackage of the NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling Children of the Red King series!
Time travel, a mystery from the past, and danger around every corner . . .
Charlie Bone hopes that the new term at Bloor's Academy will hold no unwelcome surprises. But then his distant relative Henry Yewbeam appears out of thin air, twisted through time from 1916 by Henry's wicked cousin, Ezekiel Bloor. Ezekiel, who is still alive, still nasty, and now ancient, vows to track Henry down and get rid of him once and for all. And with Charlie's scheming Yewbeam aunts also on the prowl, Henry desperately needs Charlie's help just to stay alive. Can Charlie and his friends send Henry back in time before it's too late?

Jenny Nimmo is the author of the NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling Charlie Bone series as well as GRIFFIN'S CASTLE, THE DRAGON'S CHILD, and the award-winning Magician Trilogy, all published by Orchard Books. Several of her books have been awarded and shortlisted for the Smarties Prize, the Carnegie Medal, the Whitbread Award, and the WH Smith Mind-Boggling Books Award. She lives with her husband in an old mill in Wales.
A young adolescent discovers he has supernatural powers and is sent off to a school for special youngsters, where he makes friends and enemies and finds himself in fantastic adventures. If this sounds like a cheap Harry Potter knock-off, don't be fooled. Jenny Nimmo, author of dozens of children's fantasies, has a brilliant sense of storytelling and a well-tuned ear for good writing. Shakespearean actor Simon Russell Beale adds wonder to this book with his rich baritone reading. At times, particularly when depicting evil characters, Beale descends into a gravelly bass, which can be off-putting, especially with teenaged characters. In this, the second of Nimmo's Charlie Bone novels, a boy who mysteriously disappeared in 1916 suddenly appears at modern-day Bloor's Academy without having aged a day. Charlie must find a way to protect his 11-year-old ancestor from wicked relations. S.E.S. 2004 ALA Notable Recording © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
