I felt like this volume was better than volume 2. I feel like the story is starting to go somewhere and it's taking off. A mystery was revealed while at the same time more questions were asked leaving us with more mysteries.

The series had given very slight hints at foreshadowing at an outcome and here it is confirmed. It's a nice reveal. Everyone is back and the stakes get raised.

This book was on some best of lists and I'm glad I'm taking the time to read them. I will see if my nephew wants to

Just as enjoyable as the last two volumes. The mysteries deepen here, progressing the story forward steadily. No idea where this is headed, but I’m enthralled enough to find out.

Picking up where Book #2 ended, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone are working off their debt to Lucius, while Fone Bone and Thorn are having really strange dreams. Grandma Ben reacts awfully strangely when she hears them talking about it. After avoiding them and dealing with the rat creatures again, she eventually reveals a secret to them that is a game changer. I like Ted because "bugs know a lotta stuff folks wouldn't s'pose they'd know."

Now it's getting good! This began as a simple cartoon with tiny glimmers of a darker understory and now, almost 600 pages in, we are finally getting to the meat. I can see why so many people love this. It's a very, very slow boil, but if I were reading this as it was written, I don't know that I would have been patient enough to get this far.

I am really looking forward to book four.

A beautifully illustrated adventure. Every panel is carefully crafted and draws you into the strange world of Bone. Wish I read this as a kid.

I’m stricken by the detail Smith uses from panel to panel, especially with facial features.

Bone: into the storm is part of a book series about these creatures called bones. In this volume, they find themselves in a war between the rat creatures and themselves. This could mean they have to leave for good!

Characters- Fone Bone- One of the three bone cousins who got chased out of Boneville and eventually found themselves in the valley. He is short, smart, has big feet, a big nose and he is very bright white colored. He also has a secret affection for Thorn.

I find this volume difficult from a ratings perspective. If you are reading all of the volumes back to back, as you should be, there is nothing wrong with this volume. We get a huge reveal, rat creatures being rat creatures, and Phoney's bar bet with Lucious kicks off. It's a fast and entertaining volume that propels you into the next volume.

But by itself... if you were reading these as they were released and had to wait what would seem like forever between volumes... I can see this o

I didn't get into this installment as much, although I enjoyed the Moby Dick spoof. This volume ends with a possibly interesting setup for the next book's storyline, but I find I am not interested enough to continue. The information comes too slowly for me and without another cow race (see Volume 2), there is nothing to keep me in it for the long haul.

I was slightly disturbed that Thorn, the main female character, seems to be wearing less and less clothing as the series goes on. Does the writer

This is the third book of the bones series. The series is a graphic novel Fantasy series. In this book Fone Bone and Thorn are having really strange dreams and Grandma Ben is reacting oddly when she hears them talking about it. She then reveals a secret to them that changes things. They may have to leave the farm for ever.

Mean while Smiley and Phoney are with Lucius at his bar working of a debt they owe. Then Phoney makes a bet with Lucius. The steakes are high. Who could be the better bartender

Part of dark history is finally revealed and things start to move. I love how Jeff is working with tension, not giving too much from the start, but slowly building it, revealing things piece by piece, until everything falls in together. 4.5*

This is what I have been waiting for.

In my reviews of the first two volumes of Bone I felt that even though the Bone narrative was setting up some larger story arc, the pace was a little to leisurely for my liking, and while I was willing to excuse that Out of Boneville was going to be largely expository in nature, I was slightly (very slightly) annoyed that The Great Cow Race was more of the same. I posited that perhaps future volumes would make the first two volumes look somehow greate

I was unable to get the chance to read the first Bone book, so I skipped straight to the third book. It was a little hard to follow some of the topics they talked about but I slowly started to understand what was happening. I enjoyed reading this book a lot, it had some funny moments and also some very serious moments. I like the illustrations a lot, they were ver clear and made the book so much better. While I was reading this book I found it a bit weird how some random characters came in and o ...more

This one wasn't as funny as the first two volumes, but it did have its moments, particularly with Smiley Bone. He is the comic relief throughout the novel and even though he is the village idiot character, the author writes him in such a way that you aren't left face palming after he says or does something, but rather laughing or grinning like an idiot. At least that's how I was.

This one's content was definitely a lot more serious, and started to answer a lot of the questions that plagued me thr

The books continue to be excellent.

This book was more plot and backstory heavy than the previous installments, and with it brings a lot of possibilities for the future. Identities are revealed, the brewing of a coming war beginning, and the poor Bone cousins are caught up in the heart of it. To make matters worse, Phoney Bone isn't keeping his mouth firmly shut when it comes to a certain dragon... and indeed claims he's going to go out and slay it. Not the best thing to do when the dragon is all

SPOILER!!!! It was a great book there is some action when there is rat creatures. Also there is some conflict between rose and her grandma throughout the story it turns out she is a princess and her parents were killed saving her. Another thing is her grandfather owns a bar and challenges fone bones cousins to see who will make the most money by selling beer.

I really enjoyed this, but I don't remember ever reading this volume. Even though I have already read this, I didn't remember reading this. I'm also really excited because I have completed my 2019 reading challenge. I am really excited to finish this series this time, though.

The book i did for my red dot was “Bone: Eyes of the Storm” by Jeff Smith. The book is the third book in the book series in the Bone series, it’s about 170 pages long. My most honest opinion it was probably the most boring book that I’ve read from the series, the first and the second book did a better job than the third one. It felt like a filler in the book series for many things to come later in the fourth book. There are some parts of the book that explained a lot that was going on within the ...more

Definitely some more exposition dumping in this one and it’s all predicated on the “young hero confronting withheld knowledge” trope that I’m honestly pretty tired of but have at least seen subverted a few times recently. There’s a lot of forward movement in the narrative here and we’re finally going into the meat of the story hopefully. Excited for volume 4.
