Series Spotlight: Midnight for Charlie Bone (The Children of the Red King) by Jenny Nimmo

I could never get into the “Harry Potter” series. *GASP!* I tired reading it when I was ten and just couldn’t do it. It will probably be a different

story now but I haven’t had the time to pick it up. The purpose of me telling you this is to highlight a series I read when I was 16 working at the library.

“Midnight for Charlie Bone (The Children of the Red King)” is my FAVORITE wizard, witch, save the world series. Written by Jenny Nimmo in 2003 this story is pretty close to the “Harry Potter” series. Bone is sent to Bloor’s Academy by his aunt and there he discovers that he is the descendant of the powerful Red King, along with a few other kids.

What I loved about this book was Nimmo (the author) was able to get me to like fantasy. The twist the turns, the details are perfect and I fell in love with the entire series. This series came well after “Harry Potter” which was released in 1997. But I couldn’t understand why this series never got the attention it deserved. Even if some people consider it a water down version of “Harry Potter” it still is a pretty damn good series.

In this week’s series spotlight “The Children of the Red King” gets a 9 out of 10.
