Charlie Bone and the Beast (The Children of the Red King #6)
Life should be perfect for Charlie now that his parents have been reunited. But mystery and adventure always find him. This time Asa, a fellow classmate who changes into a beast at dusk and Charlie's sometime enemy, is missing. His parents seek out Charlie for help, and now Charlie needs the help of the Flames to rescue his classmate.
Manfred Bloor has also taken the new endowed student, Dagbert Endless, under his wing and Charlie is highly suspicious of the pair. Can the Flames and Charlie rescue Asa without being caught by Manfred and Dagbert?
Charlie Bone has just found out he is "endowed" with a magical ability. He is a descendent of the Red King. The Red King had several children, with half good and half bad. The descendents have fought against each other and all endowed children attend Bloor's academy, next to the ruins of the Red King's castle. The headmaster of Bloor's academy would appreciate it if all the endowed just turned evil but that is too much to ask for from Charlie Bone and his friends who seem to constantly get in the headmaster's way!
