Midnight for Charlie Bone (The Children of the Red King Series, Book 1)
Charlie Bone discovers that he has an endowment (which is a gift) that helps him listen to voices in pictures. In the middle of the story, Charlie Bone resists getting hypnotized by Manfred Bloor. At the end of the story, again Charlie resists being hypnotized by Manfred. Manfred is evil, and he's trying to get a lot of information out of him to learn the good endowed children's secrets.
He runs home and he discovers the onimouses, and their three cats, the flames. The flames are the Red King's three leopards. That information will help him in the later books.
