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!

10-13 year olds.
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.
The amazing blend of comedy and drama continues in this volume, setting up an epic conflict for the next (and final) issue.
