About the series: Charlie Bone is one of the many descendants of the Red King and an inheritor of part of his magical powers. Charlie is determined to find his lost father, Lyell, who was horribly punished for his courage.

Together with his friends, Charlie endeavours to overcome the evil that threatens them. Their struggles, sometimes scary and sometimes humorous, take place during five terms spent at Bloor's Academy, an ancient school where the endowed descendants of the Red King can be watched and controlled.

Werewolves, hypnotists, mind-readers and witches do their best to defeat Charlie, not to mention his sinister grandmother and her three grim sisters . . .
