1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 3 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Reason for Reading: next in the series.

Tension mounts as our story nears its end. This volume isn't quite as dark as the last entry but it is intense as lines are drawn and the sides gather to prepare for the final battle. Capturing the princess is the enemy's main objective, while gathering the troops and still finding a last minute way to stop The Lord of the Locusts is our heroes'. Humour is also a big part of this volume as Phoney is once again on one of his schemes to become wealthy as indicated by the title of this volume. I don't want to say much more for those who haven't read this far yet. But the second last book in the series keeps the quality one has come to expect from this series, ends with a note of doom, making one eager to read the final volume. A great series for kids and adults!

He's 7 years old, going on to 8 and he has thoroughly enjoyed this series. It is passably entertaining for myself to read to him. Nice quality book overall.

We finally get to Atheia Feb. 15 2011
By K. Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the eight book in the nine book Bone series by Jeff Smith. It was another excellent addition to this series and filled with more humor than the previous book, despite the darkness of parts of the tale.

The Bones along with Gran'ma Ben and Thorn have finally reached Atheia. Here they reunite with some of Gran'ma Ben's old friends. Atheia is under rule of a dictator like man and they need to decide if they can count on his help in the upcoming battle against the King of Locusts. Meanwhile Lucius and crew are also trying to make their way to Atheia through the Ghost Circles.

This was another great installment in this series. There was a lot more humor packed into this book than in the previous one. So, despite the darkness and serious surrounding the upcoming war, I found myself laughing out loud a number of times. It was great to be back with Thorn, Gran'ma Ben, and the Bones...I love how Thorn is young and funny but has moments where she is tough as nails.

I have been missing the inclusion of the Dragons some; I was hoping they would feature more in these later books but mostly they are just talked about.

The book ended well but I am very eager to see how things are wrapped up in the ninth book, Bone, Vol. 9: Crown of Horns. The illustration is as excellent as ever and remains consistent with previous books.

Overall I loved this book and can't wait to read Bone, Vol. 9: Crown of Horns to see how things wrap up.
Great lead-in for a big finale Nov. 4 2014
By Joseph M. Reninger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Bones, Thorn, and Gran'ma Ben make it to Atheia, human capital of the valley. The city is getting ready for a siege and is overwhelmed by refuges fleeing from the ghost circles that are creating havoc in the valley. People wait at the gates to be allowed in. Thorn's group bribes their way in. Inside, things are also bad. Water is being rationed by the military force in control of the city. The force calls themselves the Vedu and they've outlawed dragon-lore and have no interest in returning royalty reestablishing their authority. Thorn and company will have to tread lightly. Unfortunately, Phoney Bone is only interested in finding the fabulous treasure he assumes must be in the city...and he wants to mint gold coins with his image on them. Political intrigues, both significant and slight, abound.

The amazing blend of comedy and drama continues in this volume, setting up an epic conflict for the next (and final) issue.
