My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book one of the 'Children of the Red King' series. The Red King passed his powers down through his descendants. One midnight, Charlie Bone finds he can hear voices in photographs. He is whisked off to Bloor's Academy where he meets friends with other talents and discovers mystery and adventure around every corner. Much different from the Harry Potter series. Very enjoyable characters and storyline that is fast-paced and easy to read.
