My hate for Phoney Bone intensifies. He continuously makes mistakes that hurt others with little to no self-reflection. Many different characters warned him where his actions would lead this time, but he didn’t listen to a single one… how dare he act surprised when it actually happens? What did he expect??? He remains my least favourite character, he’s on the good side only through association (he behaves like a bad guy every book!)
I love the dragon and he’s hilarious, but his actions often confuse me… I suppose that’s a good thing, for dragons to be mysterious. It’s fitting.
I didn’t care that much for grandma Ben & Lucius when I read this series as a child, but they are high on my list of favourite characters, this time. I got excited to hear more about their feelings & past.
