The stirring prequel to the award-winning, bestselling Bone series!

When a terrifying dragon attacks the small towns of the Northern Valley, a young Princess Rose (known later as Gran'ma Ben) must defeat it. The beast is actually the ancient evil, the Lord of the Locusts, and while Rose faces danger with honor, her elder sister, Princess Briar, follows a more sinister path.

An unforgettable story with beautiful, sweeping artwork, this prequel explores the fateful beginnings of the epic Bone saga.

Much darker and heavier story than in the original 9 books. For example: I was about in tears in the last couple of pages.

I agree with NobleSix, but it definitely clears up a lot of the backstory. 3.5 stars

While this is an important part of the BONE series and it's mythology, what really makes this book stand out is the art of Charles Vess. It can almost stand on it's own. Saddly it lacks the light hearted fun in the face of terror that the Bone series excells at.

Who knew Gan'ma Ben could ever be so young and adorable.
