About the Author
There's something fishy going on at Bloor's Academy, the magical boarding school 12-year-old Charlie Bone attends. New student Dagobert Endless is endowed with the talent of drowning people--and he's getting Charlie into trouble. But what else is he responsible for? Is he connected with the mysterious howling in the night, the ramblings of a strange beast, or missing were-boy Asa Pike? Simon Jones blends an invigorated, snappy read with vocal cameos of a host of characters. Among these are the mean, elderly voice of Charlie's unlikable grandmother, who is suspicious of Charlie's sleuthing; the squeaky voice of his best friend, Billy; and the growling tones of his supportive Uncle Peyton.

The Bloors are still the antithesis to Charlie and his will to do what is right. I would love to see Charlie go more head-to-head with Manfred Bloor, and I would love for Charlie to use his endowment much more than he does as it is such a cool endowment. The contrast bentween Tancred and Dagbert Endless and their shared ancestral endowment was of great interest as was Katya Kettle's shared skills of her descendant, of Feromel the blacksmith.
All in all I think this series is great and the books are just the right length. I just wish they would come out at a faster pace. I can't wait for the next installment. I hope we have a huge showdown between all of the endowed children where the background story is minimal and the exploration of their endowments is at the forefront. Keep the books coming.
An altogether delightful book.
