First sentence:

Hey, Jonathan!

Acquired: Purchased a new copy from an online retailer.

Reason for Reading: next in the series.

This volume is one big journey as Gran'ma Ben, Thorn and the Bone cousins travel across a barren land scattered with ghost circles to reach Atheia, the ancient city of the royal family.  A brief flash to the Lord of the Locusts and occassional jumps to villagers after the previous battle give a change of pace.  But for the most part we have a plot-focused, forward-moving, action-high journey in progress that is a quick, enjoyable read.  It's been a good 3 months since I read the last book, so it was a delight for me to come back to this series and find these old friends as delightful as ever.  Humour and adventure abound, while this is quite a dark ,and a bit scary, volume.  Great stuff!  Just two more books to go!  (and the prequel)
