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.
Every good epic not only deserves but needs a prequel. So Jeff Smith’s Bone, one of the great graphic novel epics, gets a teasing look at what happened in that magic realm before the series started in earnest. Opening with a Nordic saga-like origin myth about how the dragon queen Mim was driven mad by the lord of the Locusts and buried in stone to protect the world, Rose shifts into a traditional fantasy melodrama about two princesses. —Publishers Weekly
