Charlie Bone: Book 7

The enchanter Count Harken is back to take his revenge on the Red King’s heirs, starting with Charlie Bone’s family! Charlie’s ancestor has been kidnapped and imprisoned in the dark, forbidding land of Badlock, and it’s up to Charlie to save him. Traveling through a painting to the terrifying countryside, Charlie and his best friend’s dog, Runner Bean, take up the quest. But when Runner Bean gets trapped, Charlie needs the help of his friends.

Can they get past an army of trolls, rescue Runner Bean and Charlie’s ancestor, and get out before it’s too late?

Can Charlie outwit Court Harken and his sinister troops, or will the prisoners be doomed to being held captive in Badlock forever?

Runner Bean!  I love that dog, and he plays an important part in this book.  This is when the kids and their pets start to show their true allegiances.  Charlie has to deal with some very serious stuff and my heart ached in a few spots.  Fans of the series, you’ll be holding your breath for the next one.    – Jessica, Teen Librarian
