No! This book is an outstanding book in an outstanding series. The Bones of Makaidos is a fitting end to the best series of books I have ever read! If you have read any of the books in the Dragons in our Midst or Oracles of Fire series this one is a MUST read. While I read I felt like I was in the story itself, crying with them, laughing with them, fighting with them. In the ultimate battle of good vs. evil I felt joy at surprise reunions and sadness over the loss of loved ones. In the end I was left with a happiness that can only come from experiencing God at work in this world of ours. The Bones of Makaidos provides a Happily-Ever-After ending that is like no other and will leave you, as the reader, longing for an adventure like this.

Format: Paperback
This book is amazing. Words can't describe. I've cried more in this book than the other 7 put together - some were tears of sadness, but most have been tears of joy. Each time you read it it'll be just as powerful as the first time, if not more. It was really cool discovering what an oracle of fire really is, and why Bonnie's last name is Silver. All loose ends will be tied, and when you read the last page, you'll be left with a sense of satisfaction, a sense of peace that's hard to describe.

I had been waiting for this book for a long time, and I got it the day it came out. I read half of it in a day because it was so exciting! "The Bones of Makaidos" answeres questions from the previous books and wraps up the series. But I think it would be cool to see Bryan Davis write another series after this one! You will definitely not want to miss this book!

Format: Paperback
The Bones of Makaidos is a stunning epic, and my favorite of all the books. Are Heroes have been training for four long years to meet the enemies army that seeks to destroy Second Eden. Are heroes have all grown up faster in Second Eden, and Bonnie and Sapphira find themselves in a realm that they never knew existed, the lowest realm of all The Valley of Souls, where these souls await resurrection to life, and the only way to get out alive is to be consumed by fire. Sapphira and Bonnie under go training themselves to be able to fight in Second Eden. But what everyone doesn't know is that the army that's coming isn't coming just to attack Second Eden, but Heaven it's self. A must read adrenalin pumping epic. A read of sacrifice, love, romance, forgiveness, and a passion and obedience to do whatever is asked of them even if it means death. A must read story in a must read series, that never disappoints no matter how many times you read it, an epic stunning conclusion to the Oracles of Fire series. What you thought was the end of the world of our heroes was only the beginning. There's third new and exciting series called Children of the Bard you can find book 1 Song of the Ovulum, and be reunited with Billy and Bonnie and meet there children in a new epic.

Format: Paperback
I consider Bryan Davis' books to be very complex and sometimes altogether confusing. This does not always work out for the better, but in the case of Bones of Makaidos, it worked out fantastically! Everything comes through in the end; every pressing conflict is resolved and temporary peace seems to have been attained. Something that set this book apart from the most of the series is the passage of time. At one point in the book, about four years are skipped. Looking back, I could not really say at which point it was; it was quite abrupt and surprising. This book shows the characters' trust in God, or lack thereof, very well. When, in Eye of the Oracle, Davis shows the passage of time, Sapphira doesn't age physically or even mentally quite so much. What sets this book apart from every other book in this series is the mental and physical improvement of the characters. This is very real and challenges us to be like them: having faith in God and following Him through whatever He sets out for us. This 674-page book earns five stars!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dancing Oracle on October 31, 2010
Format: Paperback
The Bones of Makaidos may be my favorite book of all time. It is full of epic battles, a touching romance, fiery trials, and the answer to the questions of many: What is an Oracle of Fire? The beautiful wedding reveals the benefits of purity, as the virgin bride and child of doubt come before the alter to join hands in marriage. Friends separated by time, distance, and even different dimensions are reunited. It offered a magnificent conclusion, with a "Happily Ever After" feel, yet emitted a bit of mystery, leaving room for a few more adventures. I was in tears by the end of the book, missing those characters who sacrificed their life along the journey of eight books, and so entirely happy for those characters who had kept the faith despite the trials and struggles they went through. Bryan Davis has created a wonderful, amazing, and all around beautiful story. He has helped me learn to become an Oracle of Fire. I highly recommend you continue the adventure of our beloved characters in this spectacular book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bones of Makaidos is a brilliant conclusion to the Oracles of Fire series. Billy, Bonnie, Walter, and Ashley, the main characters, are finally grown up as they face the final battle against Arramos, Goliath, and Flint. Sapphira and Bonnie face trials in the Valley of Souls; Billy and Elam have gone for years without them. Finally, the three couples come together at the soul in the end, what all readers have been waiting for throughout the eight books. Good defeats evil, sacrifice abounds, and the characters fight for the lost, innocent, and suffering. The themes in this book, and in all of Bryan Davis's other books, are unimaginably real and touching. Filled with adventure, excitement, and passion, Bryan Davis weaves a spellbinding tale that is sure to enflame the passion for God in our souls.

This is, and will always be, my favorite book. And this is an avid reader and writer speaking.
