4.0 out of 5 stars A highly worthy Thumbs Up! 20 July 2013
Format:Paperback
This is the last volume - the bitter end. Actually it is not that bitter at all. There is a little bit of Magical McGuffin and waiting for the cavalry aspect to it. But it is well paced, dramatic, has a few surprises and a real laugh out loud moment. It feels good to reach the end of the line.

The art is excellent as always with some nice touches worth remembering. There isn't a lot you can do to shake things up at this stage but there are some well thought out scenes.

A highly worthy Thumbs Up!

4.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 11 Mar 2009
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
From the very first page, the ninth installment in the BONE graphic novel series starts off with a bang.

It begins with Thorn and Fone Bone, who are imprisoned by their own people, having the recurring dream of when her parents gave her away to the dragons. This time, however, the dream is clearer than before - she is able to see her mother.

With this dream, Thorn figures out that the only way for the war to end is if she finds the Crown of Horns. But Fone Bone is quick to object, since the object could just lead to an unclear end to the war.

Outside, the war has begun between the enemies - the Pawan and rat creature army led by Briar - and the city of Atheia. Although Atheia's army are able to force the enemy to retreat, they are still surrounded by them. With this, despite objections, Thorn understands that it is up to her to save her Gran'ma and her city, even if it could mean that it will end her life.

So as Phoney and Gran'ma hold down the fort and venture off on their own journey, Thorn and Fone Bone, along with Bartleby, are off to seal the fate of their city. Whether or not Fone Bone is right is a different story. Finding the Crown of Horns is a challenge with so many obstacles standing in their way, and what it could possibly awake is what makes this installment darker than those before.

As the first BONE graphic novel I've ever read, it definitely grabbed me from the start. For one, the art and the colors are extremely stunning. The plot itself is intriguing and compelling and is full of action and ferocious creatures that no one should ever have to encounter. The intensity of the war is balanced by the hilarious characters of Phoney and Smiley, who just put a smile on the reader's face whenever they are featured in the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story and Great Art 11 May 2009
By A Runner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a good series that adults and children can both enjoy. There are many funny moments and a compelling storyline, but it might be a little too scary for very young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars powerful, exciting finale to a most enjoyable series 1 Jan 2012
By Nicola Mansfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Reason for Reading: next and last in the series.

A powerful, exciting finale to a most enjoyable series. Coming up to this last book I had some trepidation. Would it be worth the journey? Would it be a satisfying end? I can wholeheartedly say yes to both those questions. First off we are presented with a nice fat volume considerably larger than previous volumes, letting us know we can settle down for a good read. Action-packed, with a conclusion worthy of the eight previous volumes it took to get here. All major characters have their fates determined and get closure and it is not all "happy, happy, joy, joy" for everyone either. I'm not going to say anything about plot in this review, you'll just have to read this far yourself to find out on your own. But I highly recommend the series. Some volumes are better than others, but all rated high with me, either 4 or 5 stars. The story takes turns towards the darkside and is lightened up every now and then with a humorous side story. And all throughout the story, even though it does get mighty dark at times the humour is always there too. My favourite characters were the Red Dragon, Ted the leaf bug, and Bartelby. My favourite of the main characters was Smiley Bone. If you haven't had the pleasure yet, take some time out and read the series as it is a great ride with a satisfying ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book That Made My Daughter READ! 11 Aug 2011
By RevMrsBlack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the last in a series of books/comics that MADE my child want to read. These books are written for children in the 10-13 years of age. My child HATED reading and it was difficult to help my child advance in school. The Teacher thought this book series might help. She was right! Now, my child reads voraciously and reading skills went from BELOW BASIC to ADVANCED by the end of the School year!
I have read these books and find them appropriate (in my opinion)for the above ages. I hope this helps and KUDOS to the Author for writing this entertaining and interesting series of stories. I hope this is a good reading idea for children who simply need something interesting to SPARK their desire for reading. As a Parent I would be remiss to reccomend a book without ENCOURAGING other Parents to read this first or ask their childs teacher to see if it is appropriate for your own child.
Thank-you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular finish for this series 22 Feb 2011
By K. Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the ninth and final book in Smith's Bone series. It did a very nice job of wrapping up the series, I loved it.

The book starts out bleakly; Thorn and Fone Bone have been beaten and locked in the dungeon, Gran'ma Ben is on the ramparts trying to fight off hordes of rat creatures, and Lucius is missing. This book takes us through the final battle, the search for the Crown of Horns, and the events following.

Illustration is in keeping with previous volumes and is very well done. I would recommend reading all previous volumes before this one so that you have a good appreciation for what is happening in this volume.

The book starts bleak but there is a lot of humor peppered throughout. There are a couple nice twists in the story, although for the most part it ends as you would expect it to end. It is a very solid fantasy and I enjoyed how it all ended. The story was nicely wrapped up.

There were some characters that I wish we had spent more time with; for example I think the character of Rock Jaw could have been used to make thing even more interesting.

Overall this has been just a wonderful fantasy graphic novel series and this installment only added to the wonderfulness. If you haven't picked it up to read, you should! It is just a wonderful series. Now I will be picking up Tall Tales (Bone Prequel) and the prequel novel Rose (Bone). I will also be checking out the future release Quest For The Spark #1 (Bone) illustrated by Jeff Smith and written by Thomas Sniegoski (who also writesA Kiss Before the Apocalypse: A Remy Chandler Novel the Remy Chandler urban fantasy series which I enjoy).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Graffic Novel 14 May 2009
By Wixom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Love the Bone series. My son is not the best reader. Getting him to read anything is a painful task. I saw the "Bone" books at a sale and on a whim bought volume 1 and 2. Let me just say that he became ravenous for these books. I was at the store or at Amazon as soon as the next one was released. The story line is fantastic. The drawings are beautiful. These books have spread throughout our family. I'm sorry the series is over. But I'm sure to re-read them soon! I can't wait to see what Jeff Smith comes up with next. He truly is a master with this genre!!
