In his greatest adventure yet, Charlie must discover the fate of his family, the evil intentions of the Bloors, what has become of Septimus Bloor's will, and, most important, the destiny of the Red King's heirs. But are the Children of the Red King strong enough to defeat the darkness to find the answers?
Join Charlie and his friends as they race to unlock the mystery of the Red King in this final chapter. . . .
Student Review: Jenny Nimmo has done it again! Out of her successful book series, Children of the Red King, Charlie Bone and the Red Knight is the final and by far the best book in the series!
Although somewhat predictable it was made exciting by the fact that the Bloors and Charlie are on the hunt for the Lost Box and the hidden will contained inside. There are a few surprises and for some characters things are changed forever.
I really enjoyed this book and there is no way you can finish the series without reading this book!
