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!

Format: Paperback
And so with "Treasure Hunters," we take the final step before the end of the "Bone" series. In this, the eighth of nine volumes, we see a return to the humor that has run through much of the series ("Ghost Circles" was grim indeed).
"Bone" is an huge story about three "bone creatures" and their adventures in a quaint valley of peasants, hidden princesses, dragons and creatures. Like a dark cloud looming over it all is the menace of a great evil intent on taking over the world. The series starts off lighthearted, but grows to become an epic story rooted in fantasy, without the Tolkienesque elves and dwarves.
This installment bring us into a city rather than the valley that has been at the center of the series. The forward progression for the grand tale is small indeed here. Instead, Smith begins to position all of the pieces of the puzzle for the final climax, while unexpectedly adding a few new pieces - a religious tyrant and an underground rebellion - to make the climax all that much more frantic.
Most of the action in "Treasure Hunters" takes place in the city. Few side plots or diversions outside of the city show up. The result is one of the faster reads of the "Bone" series.
This is the kind of comic tale that will appeal to a wide demographic. Smith combines the classic storytelling perfected by the likes of Carl Barks (Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge) and Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes) - characters with outrageous and expressive faces and gestures - with the epic plotting of a sweeping fairy tale. "Bone" manages to balance the two well enough to be something fans of both Donald Duck and Frodo Baggins can enjoy.
There is no doubt people will still be reading "Bone" 50 years from now. Broad and epic in scope yet personal and quaint, this is a charming story in every way that will surely outlast most other comic works on the shelf.

Bone saga had me hooked at the very beginning. What I didn't like in Ghost Circles' volume was an untilting of the careful balance of the saga between the tragic/epic and the comic/surreal that worked so well in the first volumes. But now,whit the strange situation whitin the walls of Atheia, whit Smiley and his Rat-Creature Friend Bartleby, whit Phoney bent on his quixotic schemes fighting whit giant bees (the same ones whit whom poor hopelessly Thornloving Fonebone had a quarrel very early in the story,in the Spring Fair Episode)and searching treasures even when chased inside and sieged outside...well,I think the Old Jeff Smith has returned!
