Egmont Books, 2009. ISBN 9781405248235.
(Ages 8 and up) Recommended. In this eighth and final book of the Charlie Bone series, we find Charlie still missing his parents, the Pets' Cafe closed, and Billy trapped in Badlock. To make matters worse, it seems that the Bloors are becoming more of a threat, as they recruit stronger and more dangerous allies in their race to find the box which holds the secret to the Bloors' power. Charlie's parents are in danger, and he no longer knows who he can trust. Then a mysterious Red Knight appears, and Charlie must discover if he is really there to help him. With a huge cast of characters, readers may find themselves needing to refer back to the family tree at the start of the book, but all the characters are intriguing and have their own role to play. A very satisfying end to the series.
