This is another solid volume of the mighty Bone epic. Things trundle along nicely but there is little high drama and few moments of excitement. Things are drawing to an end but are doing so slowly. New characters, and the odd mystery, are introduced late in the day and you get the feeling that things are getting a little flat. There is a dramatic ending however and you know the final book with be an exciting end.
The art is neither better nor worse but lacks the flair of some of the previous books.
A Thumbs Up!
