Bone: The Dragonslayer: 09/03/10
The Dragonslayer is the fourth installment of the Bone series by Jeff Smith. By this volume I was well and truly hooked. I went through a weekend reading the remainder of the series except for volumes 5 and 9 which weren't available at my library.
Phoney Bone has hatched a new scheme, to charge protection money from the villagers. He's calling himself the Dragonslayer but as far as he's concerned, dragons aren't real. They're just a local superstition, right?
Wrong! Phoney's in over his head again and he's dragging along Smiley and Fone. Besides the dragons, there are the rat creatures, lead by the ferocious Kingdok, and the Hooded One who could be worse than either the dragons or the rat creatures.
By The Dragonslayer the series is going at full speed. The plot threads are weaving together, conflicts are brewing and it's hard to stop reading.

These really sound like they might be interesting reads.

They are. I had some problems with the early books but loved the series as a whole.
