About the Author
Jenny Nimmo lives in a converted watermill in Wales. Her husband, David, is a painter and print-maker, and all three of her children speak Welsh fluently. She finds Wales, a land of legends, a very inspiring place to live. For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books. She feels passionately that every child should have access to as many books as they want. Jenny enjoys writing about magic because it is inexplicable and unpredictable, and anything can happen. In 1986 her book, The Snow Spider, won the Smarties Grand Prix, and in 1987 it was awarded the Tir na n-Og by the Welsh Arts Council. The Rinaldi Ring, was chosen as Guardian Book of the Week and was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal and received a commendation.

I think it is the best one so far and probably one of the best books I have ever read.
The ending was a bit strange as you didn't find out what happened to some of the characters - e.g: one of the students 'dies' but later comes back to life without a proper explanation.
I hope there will be another book.

Having said that, the book itself is just what you would expect from the series and obviously a must have for Charlie Bone fans.
I would also recommend: Garth Nix: Sabriel and Harry Hope: The Elements of Lore
