VOYA
With Queen Rose banished and Princess Thorn, along with her loyal friend Fone Bone, imprisoned by Tarsil the Usurper, the future of the city of Atheia looks grim. The worst, however, has yet to begin. The Queen's sister Briar, who is possessed by the evil Lord of the Locust, has returned. When she defeats Tarsil and penetrates the city's protective walls, the clash for control of the alley and ultimately a climactic struggle of good versus evil ensues. As the fierce battle wages around them, Fone Bone and Thorn huddle in their dungeon prison, beaten and bruised by their captors. Thoughts of escape are clouded by Thorn's vivid dreams of dragons and the vision of her dead mother's command to find the elusive Crown of Horns. Once free, they must not only confront the daunting physical obstacles in their search for the Crown but also those of their heart and mind as well. With its intricately detailed images and character revelations, this satisfying ninth and final volume of the critically acclaimed Bone saga continues the series' tradition of the ideal balance of humor and drama. To fully understand the background of the Bone cousins and the other key characters, readers should begin with the first installment, Bone Volume One: Out From Boneville (Cartoon Books, 1996). A user-friendly Web site created by the author (http://www.boneville.com) complements the series. Librarians will want to purchase multiple copies of all nine books in the saga for their collections, for their mass appeal ensures that the volumes will be in constant circulation.
