Publisher's Summary

Charlie hopes that the new term at Bloor's Academy will hold no nasty surprises. But then Henry Yewbeam appears, twisted through time from the icy winter of 1916.

With the scheming Yewbeam aunts on the prowl, and the Bloors out to catch him, Henry will need Charlie's help just to stay alive. Bloor's Academy can be a very dangerous place!

    "The Children of the Red King Book #2"

    I read these out of order, but this is a great read.

    "Deeper than you might think!"

    The Time Twister is my favorite of the Charlie Bone books. I love them all. This book had a great impact on me. So much of coming of age in Hollywood is about loss of innocence. This story says to me that innocence has great beauty and power. The Harry Potter books get me through until the next Charlie Bone book is released.

    Story
    "Thin plot. Not as good as the 1st book"

    The 1st book was a fun kids book, but this one seems like it got rushed to the printer. The "cousin" of Charlie is frankly too dumb to live. Characters that were fairly fleshed out in the last book at times did things that were out of character, and several leaps were made to conclusions for no apparent reason.

    Great narrator. So-so book.

    "Awesome!!"

    I love this series, it's has a very comfortable style and the narrator is excellent. Its almost like watching a movie withe the various voices he has at his be beckoning call. I highly reccomend this book for adults and children.

    "Loved It!"

    I am really enjoying listening to this series, and I would highly recommend it for both children and adults. I tried it out because I was a big Harry Potter fan, and while I agree that the idea was probably taken from the Potter series, the characters are there own and quite enjoyable. I'm looking forward to continuing with this series as Charlie finds out who he is and what talents he possesses. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed!!!

    "More Magical Adventures"

    Bounces into now and then, and entertains in the present. Great read! I read it twice

    "Excellent Read!"

    My son, who is 9 years old, Loves to listen to Charlie Bone on audio. I have to admit that after listening to the first one, I was anxious to hear the second. It was great! I can't wait to listen to the next Charlie Bone book!
