Why I Read It: Next in a series. Only two more to go before I'm finished!!

JEFF SMITH COULD YOU BE ANY MORE DEPRESSING?? I THOUGHT THESE WERE FOR CHILDREN!!

Seriously though, I've been saying in every review since volume 3 "this series just keeps getting darker and darker" (because it has!) but this volume takes the cake. Someone (semi)important DIES for crying out loud. It's mostly "off-screen", but still. Grim.

I liked this volume, but it felt like a lot of build-u

Bone Vol. 7 Ghost Circles by Jeff Smith
The style of how this book was written compared to the others has little saturation and has a focal point on the main characters as they walk through the destroyed forest.
The characters are likeable because no two are alike at all. Some of the characters like Thorn and Fone Bone are developing slowly through th

2015 reread? I started to doubt if I actually ever finished this series way back in the day, but I do remember a piece of Vols 8 & 9, so I guess I did? Hmm. Anywho.

Life as we know it has ended, so many are dead, and you cease to exist if you touch the invisible circles that cover the valley. Let's take a walk.

It's a very nice book but I really want to know more about the ghost circles. I want to know more about it because it's crazy how Thorn went into the circle and the never explained a lot about it. It's also a amazing book because there is a lot a twists.

Ghost Circles, by Jeff Smith, was a good book to read. What caught my attention from the begining was how the cover looked and i skimed through it and it had images and i like when a book has images because I can kind of see whats happening. Also, as soon as i started reading it had action since there was a war going on and i wanted to know why there was war going on because there is always a cause for a war to start. So i wanted to

In the Bone series Ghost Circles in the 7th graphic novel. In all there are about 9. Ghost circles was a great enjoyable book with about 150 pages. In the beginning of the book one character named Jonathan was extremely injured and laying inside a cave. You figure out during this time that Lucius was with the Hooded One and that the regiment was attacked by the rat army. Lucius ever since had been a traitor, but no one knows where his location is.

This is the seventh book in the Bone series by Jeff Smith. We all read it independently and I'm so glad that our girls like the story.

The overall story for the series is fun, exciting, and full of drama and intrigue. This book was a bit slow and almost depressing, as the outcome of the war is still uncertain, and the evil forces have gained a stronger hold. Still, we see a glimmer of hope on the horizon and we are looking forward to an exciting conclusion. We are all hooked!
