I never liked the Bones series much as a child, but my cousins Cedrick collected every book. They are part of the rare books my partner agrees to read (childhood nostalgia is strong!)
Maybe I would have enjoyed Bones a lot more, if I started with this prequel.

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.

It’s hard to find good fantasy graphic novels that make my heart happy. This was a really good one. I regret how long it sat on my shelf, untouched.
My partner complained the bone people aren’t part of this prequel, but the lack of puns helped me appreciate the world building differently.
My favourite part was the ending, which was a lot darker than I expected. It felt like a classic fairytale. I love authors who don’t coddle children.
Maybe I’ll reread the Bone series with an open mind.
