Very entertaining, well written.

I enjoy this series nearly as much as the Harry Potter series and more than the Percy Jackson series. Charlie Bone is a very likeable hero and the story line is entertaining.

Hard to listen to

I found the narrators voice hard to listen to- simone jones was wonderful in the bartimeus trilogies,but his voices here sounded horrible. The men sounded like they all had colds , the women sounded like men and all of the children except the main character were high pitched and squacky. I have not been able to listen to this book with the same rapture because the narration is soo poor. Disappointing-I have beenting for this book to comeout for sometime.
