Review originally posted here.Why I Read It: Next in a series. Only two more to go before Im finished!!JEFF SMITH COULD YOU BE ANY MORE DEPRESSING?? I THOUGHT THESE WERE FOR CHILDREN!!Seriously though, Ive been saying in every review since volume 3 this series just keeps getting darker and darker (because it has!) but this volume takes the cake.

Someone (semi)important DIES for crying out loud. Its mostly off-screen, but still. Grim.I liked this volume, but it felt like a lot of build-up. It mostly consists of the Bone cousins, Thorn and Granma Ben making their way to Atheia. Now Im embarrassed to say this but: I had no idea how the ghost circles actually worked- it confused the hell out of me. Ghost circles are explained briefly in one of the first two volumes, but I forgot how Thorn explained them and they dont really re-explain in this volume. And that whole bit with Thorn and Fone Bone touching and being in that strange golden place??

That confused me too. Was THAT the real Valley, or is the ash-covered place theyre stuck in the real Valley?? But the better question is: why cant I grasp this? These are for children for crying out loud.Anyway, despite my confusion this was actually a good volume. A little slower moving to some of the previous ones, but never boring. Theres some humour (I especially loved the bit where Smiley doesnt want Fone to see him without his vest on -- the whole issue of clothing with the Bones baffles me, but Smith clearly lampshaded it in that scene), and we get some back-story on Lucius.

And Bartlebys back!!! I was so happy about that. He can talk now, which was kind of weird, but hes as cute as ever.Final Verdict: This volume of the Bone series manages to be the grimmest one yet. Even with all the Bad Times happening though, Smith still manages to infuse some of his awesome humour, along with a good story. I was confused about how some things worked in this volume (most notably the ghost circles), and the plot was a little slower moving this time around, but it was never boring either. Im excited for the last two volumes of this series.
