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. Turns out they're very good at running a tavern (after some initial hiccups). Meanwhile, Thorn and Fone start having scary nightmares and Grandma Ben starts making plans to protect the village.
Most of the book though takes place during a fierce rain storm. The Rat Creatures are back with a vengeance and in Doctor Who fashion there's a lot of running.
From this point on the series goes into high gear. More and more of Rose and Thorn's background will be revealed. By Eyes of the Storm I was hooked. I am currently trying to finish the series but books five and nine are hard to come by at my local library.

You know, thanks for this reminder. I have to, in fact must read one of these books. Darn...keep forgetting.

After having the series recommended to me by a dozen different people, I felt obligated to give it a try. I'm glad I did.

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.
