Bone: Treasure Hunters by Jeff Smith

Book Jacket

The Bone cousins, Gran'ma Ben, and Thorn reach the city of Atheia, where they prepare to battle the Lord of the Locusts.  Meanwhile, Thorn's visions are becoming more threatening and Phoney Bone is convinced Atheia is rich in gold, and he is determined to find it!


The penultimate chapter in an epic story of hidden royalty, a potential end-of-the-world crisis, and a little guy thrown into a situation too big for him to handle--except maybe he can!

Atheia is a pretty cool city, and finally the Bones unusual appearance, and everyone else's non-reaction to them, makes sense.  There are other crazy creatures in the Bone universe.  Bartleby and Smiley continue to be my favorite, and I continue to worry for Thorn's safety.  Phoney is starting to annoy me--his unceasing greed had better have a point, because it's getting old.

Also, I really want to have a rooftop secret hideout.  That is the coolest thing ever.

Four out of five gigantic bees.
