Bone: Eyes of the Storm: 07/14/10

Eyes of the Storm plays out the consequences of Phonicble and Smiley's scheme to rig the cow race. They are up to their eyeballs in debt to Lucas and must work at the tavern to pay it off.

I'm glad to see you're enjoying this series. My daughter has the first two books, and she keeps getting after me to read them. I think I will.

I am. It took me about midway through the first book to get excited about the series.

Jeff Smith is always on the ball. The Bone books are fantastic.

I would call them very good but sometimes the Bone cousins kill the mood for me.
