Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Hower
This book is number seven in the "Bone" series. A volcano erupts and releases the Lord of the Locusts. He and the rat creatures have destroyed the valley. The dragons had protected the valley in the past, but they have since left and gone underground to dream. Now it is up to Thorn, Gran'ma Ben, and the Bone cousins to save the valley. They must travel to Atheia to reach safety. As they head down a tunnel to escape, they begin to hallucinate. When they exit at the end of the tunnel, the valley seems to have been completely destroyed. Thorn claims that it is only partly destroyed and the rest is just an illusion. She believes she can undo some of the destruction with her new powers, which she took from the Lord of the Locusts when he tried to possess her. Their journey becomes increasingly difficult as they must navigate around the ghost circles. The bone cousins add humor and thrilling adventure to the story. The book is action packed and full of truly unique characters. Children that enjoy comic books will like this book. It is hard to follow if the other books have not been read.
