Overview

In "Eyes of the Storm," book three in the epic BONE series, Gran'ma Ben reveals long-kept secrets about Thorn's royal heritage and the ancient enmities that may lead to war.

In "Eyes of the Storm," volume three of the nine-book BONE saga, Lucius, Smiley, and Phoney survive an attack by the rat creatures and return safely to Lucius' tavern in Barrelhaven. Phoney, desperate to win a bet with Lucius, stokes the townspeople's fear of dragons and boasts that he is a professional dragonslayer.

Back at the farm, Fone Bone and Thorn are troubled by strange dreams, and Gran'ma Ben's reaction to them is stranger still: She reveals long-kept secrets and warns of great danger. Thorn, Fone Bone, and Gran'ma Ben may have to leave the farm forever.

It was okay, but not good.

This is the 3rd book in a (currently) 9 book series. The rat creatures are moving in on the Bones family and their new friends. The book references the 2nd book in the series often and since this was my first Bone book I didn't understand some parts but it was still a nice read. It leaves the reader hanging though! So, I had to request the next book from the library. In fact, I'm also going to read the first two books in the series to make sure I didn't miss anything. I don't think I would recommend this for younger elementary. I think 4th or 5th graders might enjoy them but it is found in the "Young Adult" section of the library and the Juvenile in others. There were just a few words/actions that I thought might not be appropriate for my second grade classroom.I'm not usually into graphic novels, and this will definitely be my first Library Thing graphic novel. But, definitely a good series and I look forward to reading the next ones. Props to Jeff Smith for bringing Bone and graphic novels into the lime light and even helping Scholastic (reputable children's book publishing company) create their own graphic novel site.

This is the third book in the nine book Bone series by Jeff Smith. A great addition to this series, I thought this was the best book yet. The Bones are still in the valley trying to eke out a living. In the beginning of the story they are all helping Thorne and Gma rebuild their house. Smiley Bone and Phoney Bone eventually have to leave to settle their debts in town. A surprising secret is revealed about Thorne's identity and Fone Bone and her are plunged deeper into a strange quest.I loved this book. Loved how the storyline is starting to tie together and how the plot is thickening. There are a lot of great characters here, it is a lot of fun to read and at times very funny. This book wasn't as humorous as previous ones, there are more dark things happening here...but it was still a lot of fun.Overall still loving this series of graphic novels. Wonderful drawings and a wonderful storyline that keeps getting more interesting and complex. Can't wait to read the next book in this series.

In this volume, the mood takes a somber turn as Thorn's past is revealed and old enemies return. Phoney and Smiley Bone provide comic relief as they spend time with Lucius.

This books is very original as well as funny. I love the artwork and the frames move together well. This has piqued my interest in graphic novels even more!

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.Vol. 3 starts off with Fone Bone and Thorn having strange dreams and Phoney and Smiley settling down to life at the farm. Soon enough the latter two are taken back to the village to work off their debt to Lucius. The rat creatures are out after everybody as each party gets caught in a rain storm. Then Gran'ma Ben finally tells Thorn the real story of Thorn's life so far, the mysteries of her dreams and she is stunned. This is a major turning point in the plot giving the story a new direction and mission. Lots of laughs to be had here, as well as tons of action. Rat creature attacks and the return of the red (orange) dragon. (Love that guy!) Another funny, exciting adventure in the Bone series that has me clamouring for Vol. 4.

Up until now, this has been a funny-animal book, with now Smith tips his hand. It's clear that he's had a master plan from the beginning, and now we find out the true identities of the good guys and the bad guys. Well, most of them anyway. There's still lots of questions unanswered...On to Volume 4!

Phone bone falls in love with Thorn and they meet the Rat Ceatures. Continues the Bone stories.
Crowyhead on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Another excellent chapter in the Bone saga. Volume three finds everyone recovering from the attack in volume 2 (and also from the Great Cow Race), and Thorn learns more about her secret past.
