Publisher's Summary

Back in Bloor's Academy, Charlie's power takes on a new dimension. He meets a new gallery of characters, including Mr. Pilgrim's replacement, Tantalus Ebony, and the mysterious new student Joshua Tilpin, who appears to be magnetic. But not all is well. Billy has been adopted by the O'Gres, a child-hating couple, who carry with them a gray bag of oaths wherever they go, seducing Billy to sign an oath of obedience, before locking him up behind a force field in an odd place called The Passing House.

Charlie's saga continues

We thoroughly enjoyed this book, as we have the others. It, however, seems to be a pivotal book, without some of the same charm as the others. Nevertheless, very important in the series!

Great Book

Great book, very interesting. Recommend for all ages, (more understandable for kids). It kept your attention throughout the book, which is a plus for readers who lack attention toward their book.
