I don't usually read fantasy, but after this novel it's a genre I'll explore more. Scott Bury is a talented storyteller and had clearly done his homework before launching into this one. His writing is solid and vivid. I had no problem picturing setting, mythical creatures, brutal battle scenes, and feeling the emotional turmoil warrior Javor experienced with the loss of his family, betrayal, and other challenges he faced on his quest. Javor is a brilliant character, brave, fierce, loyal, compassionate, and autistic. Yes, the hero is Asperger's. I confirmed this with Bury (@ScottTheWriter) on Twitter. I applaud how thoughtfully and subtly he "shows " Javor's disability. The clues are in how other characters react to Javor and how their reactions dumbfound him. However, this story isn't about Javor overcoming his disability. He is simply who he is: wonderful and heroic.

I have one caution, which I only give because I have seen this novel labeled as Young Adult. It contains explicit sexual content that makes it unsuitable for younger readers, in my opinion. So don't make presumptions based on Javor's age. The Bones Of The Earth is not written for someone his age. It's intended for an adult audience, which I highly recommend it to.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention my favorite scene, which is probably the most epic action scene I have ever read: a battle with a dragon. Talk about vivid! This is a scene that I hope one day to watch wide-eyed on "the big screen" while absently shoveling popcorn into my mouth. Bury sure knows how to choreograph and describe a fight.

I did my best to enjoy this book because if was highly recommended but it wasn't for me. It took more than 20 pages to get into the story (twice as many as I normally allow) and I thought it had finally taken off but it was just too fanciful for my taste. I found it hard to keep up with the story and the end couldn't come soon enough. Perhaps I should stick to my usual genre and leave books like this to others.

I HAVE NOT QUITE FINISHED THE BOOK YET ,BUT I HAVE FOUND IT INTERESTING, BUT NOT ALWAYS PUT TOGETHER WELL., IT IS DISJOINTED AT TIMES. I ALSO FELT THAT HE WAS ABLE TO BRING TO LIFE THE TIMES AND ATMOSPHERE OF THE PERIOD, ALTHOUGH.
SOME OF THE DESCRIPTIVE PASSAGES WERE RATHER LONG WINDED AND COULD DO WITH CUTTING.
I AM ENJOYING THE READ AND APPRECIATE THE AUTHOR'S WONDERFULLY IMAGINATIVE MIND AND HIS OBVIOUS RESEARCH INTO HIS SUBJECT.I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.

I have absolutely loved this book and I was very sad when I reached the ending. Javor, the main protagonist, is a very special character and it is amazing to see the story and events develop through his eyes. Great book for lovers of both fantasy and historical fiction, based on the decadent era of the Roman Empire.
When the village where Javor lives gets attacked by a hideous creature, Javor's life will change dramatically. Join him in his way to Constantinople, a trip that will be full of dangers, finding enemies, dragons, and other creatures. Little by little, he will learn more about why the events happening are happening like that. People think that Javor is weird, but while you read, you discover why he is so special, and that was something that I loved about this book. It is sweet, it is innocent, and it is completely honest. One of my favourite characters from now on.
I highly recommend this book.
The only bad thing I found, and that's why I removed one star, is that there are many typos and some missing words. It doesn't make the reading difficult, but it can be a bit annoying.
