A spell-binding tale combining a fascination with magic, a bit of sleuthing, and the charm of adolescent antics with a unique slant on historical witch-hunts.

Third Times The Charm brings together three estranged orphans who, under the protection of their great aunt Abadelle, must find their place in one of the most powerful and esteemed witch families; the Dramsmits. But their transformation from lost waifs into upper class gentry, with its benefits of a regal manor and servants, comes with new responsibility. To protect their arcane lineage from the dark forces that murdered their parents and grandmother, Sharron, Wally and Chip must combine their fledgling power and honour their familial bond.

ROBERT HOWELL lives in Pointe Claire, Quebec. This is his first novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book-wrong age category This fast paced, attention grabbing book is wonderful - but especially for the 8-15 age group. With the magic of the Harry Potter series but far less violent, this debut novel of a detective/magic series is sure to keep the kids reading to the last page, and then ask for more.

Read from the Book

Waking with the dawn, Sharron just knew this was going to be the worst day of her life. Yesterday Mrs Ticktea told her that someone from her family would come to claim her. It was not as if she really liked it at Mrs Ticktea's home for unwanted girls. The work was hard, most of the other girls teased her, the food was barely okay and her bed in the dustiest corner of the attic was always full of spiders. But at least it was a place she had become used to. She had been there for almost a year. That was the most she had ever stayed at one place for as long as she could remember. And she had lived for almost twelve years.But that was about to end. A social worker had come to see Mrs.Ticktea with a story about some aunt from the distant side of her family who had tracked her down and was arranging to have her taken to her new home. When her parents had died in a car crash nine years ago she had been sent from one foster family to another. When she was old enough to understand, she had been told that her parents had come from England and had left no way of contacting anyone from her family. That is why it came as a complete surprise to hear that an aunt had discovered her whereabouts and was going to claim her, as if she were an heirloom that had been inherited. And worse yet she was being moved from her long time home of Chicago to another country. For heavens sake they were moving her all the way to Canada. From what she had been told they were not even civilised there. And they talk funny.
