Crown of Horns: Bone Graphic Novels #9 (Reissue) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

BONE is more thrilling, adventurous, and hilarious than ever in this conclusion to Jeff Smith's bestselling comic book saga!

It's full-fledged war as Briar, the rat creatures, and the Pawan army storm the city of Atheia. The Bone cousins, Thorn, and Gran'ma Ben are all there to defend the Valley and stop the return of the Lord of the Locusts. When Thorn goes inside a ghost circle, she hears a voice urging her to seek the Crown of Horns. What follows is another dangerous journey for Thorn and loyal Fone Bone as they race to the sacred grounds of the dragons, searching for the one thing that may save them all. This is the breathtaking conclusion to Jeff Smith's nine-book graphic novel series.

Review:

"There really aren't any superlatives left to lay at Smith's feet for his timeless achievement...A masterful rendering now fully ready for a whole new generation of readers." Booklist

Review:

"In this ninth and final volume of Smith's award-winning Bone series, Thorn and her loyal friends must defeat not only the evil Briar Rose but also free the land and its inhabitants from the Locust spirit. Beaten by tyrant Tarsil's soldiers, Thorn and faithful Fone Bone are locked in the dungeon, as Briar Rose and her army storm the castle. Spurred on by a recurring dream, Thorn is determined to break free and find the Crown of Horns, which will destroy the nightmare spirit known as the Locust but may also kill Thorn herself. The Locust was imprisoned within the legendary dragon queen Mim, whose body was encased in stone but who now threatens to break free. With the help of Gran'ma Ben and Fone Bone's cousins, Smiley and Phoney, Thorn is able to escape and make her way to Tanen Gard, the dragon burial ground, where she hopes to find the Crown of Horns. Smith expertly combines all the best elements of fantasy epics like Lord of the Rings — a plucky hero(ine), all manner of creatures, and a kingdom rich in mythological history — with enough humor to appeal to readers young and old. (Feb.) Publisher's Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"The quality and consistency of both artwork and story makes this series and its climactic conclusion one of the best graphic novel series for readers of all ages." VOYA

Review:

"Both a stirring high fantasy and animated comedy, Bone is one of those rare graphic novel series that succeeds on multiple levels." Children's Literature

About the Author

In 1991, Jeff Smith launched a company called Cartoon Books to publish his comic book Bone, a comedy/adventure about three lost cousins from Boneville. Word of mouth, critical acclaim, and a string of major awards helped propel Cartoon Books and Bone to the forefront of the comic book industry. In the Spring of 2005, Harry Potter's U.S. publisher Scholastic entered the graphic novel market by launching a new imprint, Graphix with a full color version of Bone. Out from Boneville, bringing the underground comic to a new audience and a new generation.
