THE ENDOWED ARE ALL DESCENDED FROM THE TEN CHILDREN OF THE RED KING.
MANFRED BLOOR
Teaching assistant at Bloor’s Academy. A hypnotist. He is descended from Borlath, elder son of the Red King. Borlath was a brutal and sadistic tyrant.
NAREN BLOOR
Adopted daughter of Bartholomew Bloor. Naren can send shadow words over great distances. She is descended from the Red King’s grandson who was abducted by pirates and taken to China.
CHARLIE BONE
Charlie can travel into photographs and pictures. Through his father, he is descended from the Red King and through his mother, from Mathonwy, a Welsh magician and friend of the Red King.
IDITH AND INEZ BRANKO
Telekinetic twins, distantly related to Zelda Dobinski, who has left Bloor’s Academy.
DAGBERT ENDLESS
Dagbert is the son of Lord Grimwald, who can control the oceans. His mother took the gold from drowned men’s teeth and made them into charms to protect her son. Dagbert is a drowner.
DORCAS LOOM
An endowed girl whose gift is the ability to bewitch clothes.
UNA ONIMOUS
Mr. Onimous’s niece. Una is five years old and her endowment is being kept secret until it has fully developed.
ASA PIKE
A were-beast. He is descended from a tribe who lived in the northern forests and kept strange beasts. Asa can change shape at dusk.
BILLY RAVEN
Billy can communicate with animals. One of his ancestors conversed with ravens that sat on a gallows where dead men hung. For this talent he was banished from his village.
LYSANDER SAGE
Descended from an African wise man, Lysander can call up his spirit ancestors.
GABRIEL SILK
Gabriel can feel scenes and emotions through the clothes of others. He comes from a line of psychics.
JOSHUA TILPIN
Joshua has magnetism. He is descended from Lilith, the Red King’s oldest daughter, and Harken, the evil enchanter who married her.
EMMA TOLLY
Emma can fly. Her surname derives from the Spanish swordsman from Toledo whose daughter married the Red King. The swordsman is therefore an ancestor of all the endowed children.
TANCRED TORSSON
A storm-bringer. His Scandinavian ancestor was named after the thunder god, Thor. Tancred can bring wind, thunder, and lightning.
OLIVIA VERTIGO
Descended from Guanhamara, who fled the Red King’s castle and married an Italian prince. Olivia is an illusionist. The Bloors are unaware of her endowment.
Charlie Bone lives in a city that holds many secrets. They are hidden in the walls and buried under centuries of dust.
The city began nine hundred years ago with a castle. It was built by Charlie’s ancestor, the Red King, so-called because of his red cloak and the burning sun emblazoned on his shield. The Red King was African; he was also a magician.
When the king’s beloved queen, Berenice, died, he went to grieve in the forest. He believed that his ten children were safe in the hands of wise councillors and kind nurses. Besides, each child had been endowed with an extraordinary power.
At that time, the country was a violent and lawless place; murder and robbery were rife. On his way home, the king found that his considerable powers were needed to help the poor and oppressed. He donned a suit of chain mail and a helmet with a plume of red feathers. Then, conjuring up an invincible sword, he rode out to defend the troubled and helpless people.
For five years the Red King fought tyrants, murderers, and plundering nobles. When he finally returned to his castle, he found that five of his children were gone and the other five were using their endowments to wreak havoc on the surrounding countryside. It was these children and their heirs who began the city’s history of dreadful magic and wickedness. Unable to fight his own children, the brokenhearted king left his castle forever.
Charlie’s grandmother and her three sisters all have a part in the evil. While Lyell Bone was spellbound they sent Charlie to Bloor’s Academy, a school run by a family with an especially violent past. Charlie is often afraid of the Bloors and their allies, but, so far, he has resisted all their attempts to crush him, for he has friends among the descendants of the Red King, friends who use their unusual endowments to help him.
With his own talent for traveling into the past through pictures, Charlie is beginning to learn the city’s secrets. It is a dangerous pursuit, but Charlie has his friends to support him and a firm trust in the enduring power of the Red King.
You might think it was rather careless of Charlie Bone to lose his father a second time, especially when he had only just found him. They had been apart for ten long years, spellbound years for Lyell Bone, a time spent in deep forgetfulness, when he could remember nothing of his past or even recall his name.
This time, at least Charlie knew where his father had gone. He was taking Charlie’s mother on a second honeymoon. What could be better than to get away from cold, dark February days, to watch whales and dolphins roll through a sunlit sea? They had asked Charlie to join them, of course, but he had politely declined. His parents needed to be alone and, besides, there were things that he had to attend to at home. A few mysteries to clear up.
At that moment Charlie was standing by the gate of the house where he was born. It was an old, redbrick building, with a steep slate roof and four steps up to a blue front door. Charlie and his mother had left the house when he was two, and he couldn’t remember it at all. Even the name was unfamiliar to him: Diamond Corner — it stood on the corner of Diamond Street and Lyme Avenue.
Charlie was twelve now, a boy of medium height with dark, unruly hair and walnut brown eyes. A boy who was ordinary in every way except one: He was a picture-traveler, a talent he had inherited from the legendary Red King.
Beside Charlie stood a very tall man with strong, finely chiseled features and straight black hair that almost touched his shoulders. He wore a long, dark coat and the brim of his black hat had been pulled down, as if to shade his eyes, though there was not the slightest glimmer of sunlight on this murky Sunday afternoon.
“Needs a lot of repair,” the man remarked, looking at the dark holes where slates had fallen from the roof.
“I wish I could move in right now, Uncle Paton,” said Charlie.
“You won’t have to wait long,” said his uncle. “They’re starting work next week, builders, painters, plumbers, and roofers.”
“Let’s have a look.” Charlie opened the gate and walked up the overgrown path. His uncle followed, jangling a bunch of keys. As they drew closer they notic
ed a light in one of the lower windows.
“Someone’s in there.” Charlie ran up to the door. His uncle, only a pace behind, leaped up the steps and fitted one of his keys into the lock. The blue door swung open and Charlie stepped inside.
A stale, mildewy smell filled the hallway. The floorboards were damp and dusty, and strips of ragged wallpaper hung from the dark-stained walls. Charlie trod as lightly as he could, but the bare boards creaked with every step he took. He quickly opened a door to his left and looked into the room where he had seen the light. It was empty. Uncle Paton nodded at a half-open door on the other side of the room. “The kitchen,” he whispered.
A shuffling sound could be heard. It was difficult to make out where it came from. Charlie sprang across the room, his uncle’s heavy footsteps pounding after him. But the kitchen too was empty. A sharp bang sent Charlie bounding through the kitchen and into the hallway. The back door swung open, hitting the wall behind it with another loud bang. A blast of cold air hit Charlie as he squinted outside. He was just in time to see two figures slip through a broken fence at the end of the yard.
“Hey!” cried Charlie, running through a sea of long, dried grass and weeds. When he reached the fence he peered into the narrow gap. But the intruders had vanished.
“Could have been tramps.” Uncle Paton kicked at a pile of newspapers in a corner. “Let’s go, Charlie.”
“Can’t I go upstairs?” begged Charlie. “I want to see if I can remember the room where I slept.”
“Go on, then.” Uncle Paton followed Charlie up the stairs. When he reached the top, Charlie stood and stared at the two doors in front of him. There were two more leading off a hall to his left, and another on his right. He chose this last one.
“You did remember, Charlie!”
“I just guessed,” said Charlie. He pushed open the door. “OH!”
It was impossible to move any farther into the room. Every floorboard had been lifted. Some stood against the walls, others lay scattered on the narrow planks that supported the floor.
“How very odd!” Uncle Paton peered over Charlie’s shoulder. “I didn’t know the builders had started already.”
They looked in the other rooms. Every one was in the same state; floorboards were wrenched up and thrown carelessly into corners or strewn across the thin planks.
“Looks like someone’s been searching for something,” Charlie remarked.
“A pretty desperate search,” his uncle agreed. “I imagine they did the same downstairs, but relaid the boards in case anyone looked through the windows.”
“I don’t like to think of strangers coming in and trashing my old home,” said Charlie.
As they went downstairs they kept an eye open for any sign that the boards might have been pulled up. And this time they noticed the splintered wood, the nails that had been unscrewed, and the slight wobble in the banisters.
“It might be a good idea to change the locks,” said Uncle Paton, when they were standing in the street again. “I’ll tell the agents.”
They began the walk home to number nine Filbert Street. Uncle Paton was thinking about the intruders and failed to notice that the streetlights had come on. Before Charlie had time to warn him, his uncle carelessly glanced upward and the light over his head gave a loud pop and exploded.
Uncle Paton ducked as a shower of glass rained down on his head. “Bother! Bother! Bother!” he cried.
Paton Yewbeam, another of the Red King’s descendants, had inherited an unfortunate endowment. If he so much as glanced at a light that was on, whether it was in a window, a building, on the street, or at home, the element would reach such intense heat that the bulb inevitably exploded. So Paton rarely left home in the daytime. Traffic lights, brake lights, and shop windows were all at risk from his unhappy talent. And he found it very embarrassing.
This time Uncle Paton’s accident had revealed something. In the bright flash that momentarily filled the street, two figures could be seen cowering beside a hedge. The moment lasted less than a second but their faces were printed sharply in Charlie’s mind. They looked … not quite human.
Charlie had blinked against the shower of glass that fell onto his uncle. When he opened his eyes again, the figures had vanished.
“Come on, Charlie, let’s get out of here before someone sees us.” Uncle Paton took Charlie’s arm and pulled him away from the scene of his crime.
“Someone did see us, Uncle P.,” said Charlie. “I think it might have been THEM. You know, the intruders. But they weren’t exactly people. If you know what I mean.”
“I do not.” Uncle Paton gripped Charlie even tighter. “Quick, quick! Over here.”
Charlie found himself being dragged across the street. A fast approaching car gave a warning hoot, and Uncle Paton hauled him onto the sidewalk.
“What did you say about not-exactly people?” Uncle Paton tugged the brim of his hat. Now even his nose was hidden.
“They were weird, Uncle P.,” Charlie panted. “I can’t explain.”
“Try,” commanded his uncle. “I want to know what kind of creatures we’re up against.”
Uncle Paton set off again at his usual breakneck speed. Charlie had to make little skipping movements in order to keep up with him. “It’s not fair,” Charlie complained. “Your legs are twice as long as mine.”
“I want to put distance between myself and the streetlight,” Uncle Paton snapped. He turned a corner and slowed his pace. “Now, try again. What made these things inhuman, Charlie?”
“They were a bit hairy for one thing,” said Charlie. “And their eyes — their eyes, well, I think they were too far apart for a human, they were more like dogs — or, or —”
“Wolves?” his uncle suggested.
“Maybe,” Charlie said cautiously. “If wolves have yellow eyes.”
“Hmmm. Why do I think that the Bloors have something to do with this? Tell me, did your father mention anything that he might have left at the old house?”
“Nothing,” said Charlie. “But then there were so many things that he’d forgotten.” He smiled to himself. It was enough that his father had remembered his mother and himself. “His memory is coming back, though. Every day something new pops into his head. Maybe when he comes home again he’ll be completely recovered.”
“And that’s what they’re afraid of.” Uncle Paton came to a standstill.
“Who? What?” asked Charlie.
“Listen, Charlie. We believe that Manfred Bloor hypnotized your father because he caused old Ezekiel’s accident. But I have come to believe that there was more to it. I believe your father was hiding something that the Bloors wanted. Perhaps they hoped that under hypnosis he would reveal its hiding place. But this never happened. And now they’re afraid that he will remember and find whatever it is before they do.”
Charlie couldn’t imagine what had led his uncle to his conclusion. But Paton Yewbeam had an inquiring mind. He was writing a history of the Red King, and his room was crammed with huge books that covered every subject Charlie had heard of, and a lot more that he hadn’t.
Diamond Street lay on the outskirts of the city, and it took Charlie and his uncle nearly an hour to get home. By that time dusk had fallen and a thick mist was creeping through the streets. Curiously it smelled of salt, though the sea was at least thirty miles away.
Charlie’s grandmother Maisie met them at the door. She had the look of someone who’s had a nasty shock. “Grandma Bone’s back,” she whispered, turning out the hall light in case of a Paton accident.
“Back?” said Paton loudly. “Why on earth …”
“Shhh!” Maisie put a finger to her lips. “Come in here.”
Charlie and his uncle followed Maisie into the kitchen. The table had been set, and while Maisie ladled mushroom soup into three bowls, she told them about Grandma Bone’s dramatic arrival.
Grandma Bone was Paton’s sister. She was twenty years older than he, and they’d never gotten along. She didn’t e
ven get along with her only son, Charlie’s father. As soon as he’d come home after ten long years imprisoned in Bloor’s Academy, Grandma Bone had moved out. She’d gone to live with her three sisters at the end of a grim and gloomy alley called Darkly Wynd. Charlie had hoped he would never see her again.
“She’s still got a key,” Maisie told them. “She marched in, dumped her bag in the hall, and said, ‘I’m back!’ ‘Why?’ I asked. Well, that was wrong for a start. ‘Anyone would think you were sorry,’ she said. ‘I am,’ I said. ‘I thought you’d gone for good.’”
Charlie began to giggle. Paton asked, “But what is her reason, Maisie? Why has she returned?”
“A wedding!” said Maisie.
“Whose?” begged Paton.
“Your youngest sister, Venetia. She’s getting married next week.”
Charlie choked on his soup. “Great-aunt Venetia? Who on earth would want to marry her?”
“Who indeed, Charlie love,” said Maisie. “But some poor man is soon going to rue the day.”
“How extraordinary.” Paton stared at Maisie in disbelief.
“Grandma Bone is very put out,” Maisie went on, “but her sisters are all for it apparently.”
“Phew.” Paton blew on his soup, which couldn’t have been that hot because he’d already swallowed several spoonfuls without a murmur. He was trying not to show it, but anyone could see that he was utterly baffled and extremely shocked.
Uncle Paton’s four sisters were each as bad as the other. They loathed their only brother and spent their lives tormenting him just because he didn’t agree with their morals and made very sure they knew it. All four of them were mean, spiteful, arrogant, dishonest, and greedy. In fact, Charlie couldn’t find enough words to describe how horrible they were. None of them had ever given Charlie a kind word, let alone a birthday present, not even Grandma Bone.

Description: Twenty eight florins a month is a huge price to pay, for a man to stand between you and the Wild. Twenty eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern's jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip the head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men - or worse, a company of mercenaries - against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder. It takes all the advantages of birth, training, and the luck of the devil to do it. The Red Knight has all three, he has youth on his side, and he's determined to turn a profit. So when he hires his company out to protect an Abbess and her nunnery, it's just another job. The abby is rich, the nuns are pretty and the monster preying on them is nothing he can't deal with. Only it's not just a job. It's going to be a war. . .

Description: The New York Times bestseller and one of the 100 Most Notable Books of 2005. In the tradition of This Boy's Life and The Liar's Club, a raucous, poignant, luminously written memoir about a boy striving to become a man, and his romance with a bar. J.R. Moehringer grew up captivated by a voice. It was the voice of his father, a New York City disc jockey who vanished before J.R. spoke his first word. Sitting on the stoop, pressing an ear to the radio, J.R. would strain to hear in that plummy baritone the secrets of masculinity and identity. Though J.R.'s mother was his world, his rock, he craved something more, something faintly and hauntingly audible only in The Voice. At eight years old, suddenly unable to find The Voice on the radio, J.R. turned in desperation to the bar on the corner, where he found a rousing chorus of new voices. The alphas along the bar--including J.R.'s Uncle Charlie, a Humphrey Bogart look-alike; Colt, a Yogi Bear sound-alike; and Joey D, a softhearted brawler--took J.R. to the beach, to ballgames, and ultimately into their circle. They taught J.R., tended him, and provided a kind of fathering-by-committee. Torn between the stirring example of his mother and the lurid romance of the bar, J.R. tried to forge a self somewhere in the center. But when it was time for J.R. to leave home, the bar became an increasingly seductive sanctuary, a place to return and regroup during his picaresque journeys. Time and again the bar offered shelter from failure, rejection, heartbreak--and eventually from reality. In the grand tradition of landmark memoirs, The Tender Bar is suspenseful, wrenching, and achingly funny. A classic American story of self-invention and escape, of the fierce love between a single mother and an only son, it's also a moving portrait of one boy's struggle to become a man, and an unforgettable depiction of how men remain, at heart, lost boys.

Description: I Corps, Republic of South Vietnam, bloody 1968 Live the harrowing highs and traumatic lows of one marine youth who finds his seven-month “in country” war-weary self carrying a field radio burden for a suspect glory-minded forward observer artillery officer who’d yet to learn the undeclared war was a government sham, a political ruse that would one tragic day force the FO team’s “command structured” relationship to a “who’s responsible” head over a short round of friendly artillery, which put their field commander permanently out of action. The resolve-testing war with the North Vietnamese Army, the near immobilizing, ever-sweltering jungle mountains and sandy flatlands, the thought-friendly villages, the two of our people executed, the four enemy prisoners executed in turn, as well as President Johnson’s bombing halts and retaking enemy positions are the nerve-pickling building blocks shackled themselves together like a confrontation-packed novel about combat-weary vets not taught to run from a political fight either. Experience the combative days, literally sweat the chancy nights, devour the popular songs . . . when lucky enough to hear such haunting “sounds” as “Get Off My Cloud” by the Rolling Stones. For one can’t simply “throw their rifle down and quit!” The corps will toss said shameless in the brig for untold years; though a panicked one can steal away into the masking jungle and surrender, yet hard-core enemy will put a bullet through a deserter’s enlisted head like a pesky bunker rat, unless one’s a commissioned officer, then the VC “might” keep said alive as a “peace”-bargaining chip. One may understand the historic reason why many the combat marine during such oh-so-questioning times likened themselves to the politically used, if not correct, title of Uncle Sam’s misguided children—know what it’s truly like to stalk and be stalked, kill or be killed, fear and be feared.

Description: In this compelling family saga set during a tumultuous era in Boston history, 1960-1984, James Carroll chronicles the lives of two brothers, Nick and Terry Doyle, as they strive to move beyond the strictures of their working-class Charlestown neighborhood to' the city below.' Though one brother is drawn to the worlds of politics and real estate and the other to the underworld of organized crime, their fates remain inextricably linked as each struggles to break free of the blood tie holding him captive to the past. As in his previous best-selling novels Mortal Friends and Family Trade, James Carroll seamlessly blends fiction and history to create a gripping tale of family bonds and ethnic violence, vows and betrayals, and political intrigue in the inner sanctums of both church and state.
