When Charlie turns 12 on New Year's Eve, the Flame Cats give him a grave warning: something ancient has awoken, and Charlie must be watchful.

Meanwhile, pets are mysteriously vanishing from the city, and Olivia is in danger of revealing her newfound powers.

Love the series but not this one!

I'm an avid reader of fantasy and "magic books", and have enjoyed the Charlie Bone series. This one, however, isn't written nearly as well as the others - the plot is hard to figure out and wanders, and too much of the dialogue is pointless. Still, I'll eagerly await the next one and hope for the best!

I have listened to all of the books now with my 8 year old. This one seems to have been a little harder to follow. There were times that I felt like I had missed something altogether, but in the end understood most of it.

Definately a must listen.
