I don't want this series to ever stop.

Got a feeling that finale will be so epic.

Blizimo se kraju. Grad u opsadi, niko nikome ne veruje a situacija sve mracnija i teza.

I'm crying foul on this one because Thorn's bare leg poking out of a big pile of bad guys makes me sort of queasy. I've not been a big fan through this whole series of her shorts/skirts/whatever she's wearing having to end precisely where her thighs split, and come on, did she have to get her clothes ripped off in that melee?

Phew! After a few slower volumes this one makes up for it! Briar has reached a new level of terrifying and the quick jumps from groups of characters made it impossible to attempt to stop once I started. The next time someone offers me tea (and I happen to holding a large sword) I am so pulling a "Thorn Thunk!". I'm always amazed at how well Smith is able to juggle humor and creep creep creeeepiness in these. This one in particular made me feel a little hopeless, which is amazing considering when ...more

I haven't given this series enough praise in regards to character development. I've rattled on and on about the hilarity and epic-ness(which is understandable as both are huge), but the way these characters have bonded is really amazing.

I'm scared to read the next and final volume. I'm almost positive I'm gonna be saddened.

This 136 paged graphic novel was a great read. It talked about this princess trying to get into a city and to save the creatures in it from something they call 'ghost circles.' It is a very good graphic novel that talks about what she goes through to survive and how her friends and family help her do so. It has a lot of mystical creatures included in it and a lot of magic as well.

I loved reading this novel because the graphics were so nice to look at and they were so interesting. They made me f

This book is about people trying to escape and get inside a village.And then they get inside the village and they are there for a long time. Then one day they went to the square market and saw some food and tools and wanted to see how people pay for things.And they thought you pay with eggs and they went and asked some one.And they said no you pay with gold coins. I reccomend this book to my friend from my old school.

Ci stiamo avvicinando alla conclusione, ancora due numeri e l’epopea dei cugini Bone giugnerà a termine. Un’epopea che, andando avanti con i volumi, si fa sempre più fantasy e cupa.


Sono lontani i tempi in cui pensavo “oh, guarda che buffi questi Bone… sono di chiara ispirazione Tolkeniana, paiono hobbit scagliati nel mondo esterno. E la loro estraneità al resto del mondo è evidenziata perfettamente dall’aspetto buffo”. Sono lontani anche i tempi in cui ogni cinque pagine si rideva per una scenet

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 L

Tak jako takřka každá rozsáhlá série, i Kůstek má svůj "připravovací" předposlední díl. Ten, v němž se toho zase tak moc nestane, figurky se zdánlivě bezcílně pohybují po šachovnici, nenachází mnoho odpovědí (spíše zakopávají o další otázky) a připravují se na bouři.
Austen Gerrian
This book was the lead up to the ending to the series so it had to be good and it was. Smiley and Phoney hope to get to Athenia, not for safety but for GOLD. They eventually find gold.

I wasn't really wild about this one. First off, I think a major issue I had with this book is that it is Volume 8 in a series and I have not read any of the other books in the series. I grabbed it at the library during the 2014 week of Challenged and Banned Books (ALA) - the genre this year was Graphic Novels.

Compared to the other graphic novels I've read in the past few weeks (Persepolis, The Color Trilogy by Kim Dong Wha, Maus 1) the panels were very busy - too busy for me to take the images

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 ...more

This is the eighth 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!

Bone Vol 8 Treasure Hunters 5 Stars, buy it

Self purchase, comixology, reread review

Everybit as good as the other volumes. Fantastic, great for kids of all ages. I know all of my reread reviews on these are all the same but when a series is that great, you can’t help but repeat yourself with how awesome it is. The art is fantastic and so is the writing. I Love Lucius and how cranky he is. Of course the bones are awesome. And the Stupid Stupid Rat Creatures are hilarious, but I love only Bartleby.

The Bone series has often discussed the kingdom of Atheia. Here, in the penultimate volume, the characters finally get there. Besides being swarmed with refugees from the ghost circles, the kingdom is under the control of a corrupted stickeater named Lord Tarsil, who's banned dragon talk and won't take too kindly to our heroes.

So, things are bad. It's the kind of place Phoney Bone would see as a financial advantage...which is basically what he does. Everyone else knows this isn't a good place to
