Summary: As war spreads through the valley, the Bone cousins join Gran'ma Ben and Lucius at Old Man's Cave to make a stand against the rat creatures. But not everything goes as planned. By the end of the book, Phoney Bone is strapped to a stone altar and about to be sacrificed; Thorn is lying lifeless nearby; and the rumblings of an earthquake suggest that the Lord of the Locusts is about to be released. Fone and Smiley Bone must do something drastic to save their friends.

My rating: 8/10.
My Review:

♥ "When we dream, we peer through a foggy glass into the river and see a world that is connected to all other living things. That dreaming world exists even when we are awake."

♥ "Ah, yes, your soul is that bit of the dreaming that makes you you. Each of us, in fact, is a small concentrated bit of dream carried along in the currents of the great dreaming river that flows all around us. Within ourselves... the dreaming may flow in many directions, but occasionally there is one born within whom all the currents are aligned. Such a person would be very strong and gifted by fate."
