    5. Wanted to add a few words on the book, instead of just stars I honestly can t recommend this series enough I could try, but you d want me to zip it after three pages of gushing Since page one of the first book in the series I have loved these characters They felt real, I felt homey in their homes well, at least Karn s village So much so, I had that cringing anticipation, knowing bad things were going to happen That eager anticipation of the character s adventure is a rare thing in books It s why [...]

    8. Thank you to Penguin Random House for sending me a copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review As soon as I finished Frostborn, I instantly picked up my copy of Nightborn and I m so glad that I did Nightborn was even better than Frostborn, which I didn t think would be possible In Nightborn, elves have tried to find out where the horn went, though Orm the dragon ate the elves who came All he knew was that there were coming back because they thought that it wasn t the last horn an [...]

    10. So normally, I am not a big fan of middle grade reads I have tried and tried reading them in the past and to no avail, I have not been able to finish them This book has become my exception to that rule If you enjoy high fantasy, then you should probably pick up this series.I had not read the first book and went into this completely blind I must admit that although there were a few times that I seemed to get confused, I was able to follow the book through for the most part which made me VERY happ [...]


    11. This second adventure in the Thrones Bones series has Karn being sent by the dragon Orm to find the second of the horns that control the dragons Orm has already sent Thianna looking and she has disappeared Karn is willing to search but he is much interested in finding Thianna than he is in finding the horn.Desstra is a Dark Elf who is also searching for the horn She wants to become an elite agent of the Underhand and must successfully complete this mission Her plan is to pretend to befriend Kar [...]


    12. Full review on my blog, Dizneeee s World of Books.The adventures and events chariot fighting, y all were amazingly described and I could see the images clearly in my head This book was definitely a movie for my brain Lou Anders is a great fantasy storyteller I am still thoroughly enjoying this series and I cannot wait for the next book Again, if you enjoy middle grade, fantasy, adventure, or friendship, this is a book and series for you.


    13. FIRST THOUGHTS This sequel is definitely much fast paced than the first But in the best way I liked seeing our two MCs again, but I also fell in love with a new character This book is so fun


    14. A fun follow up to the first book, our two heroes are separate but soon end up on the path to finding one another I loved the new characters, Desstra is definitely unlike the other dark elves and has a conscious, but it gets her in trouble with the other dark elves.


    15. Another action packed excursion into the world of Thrones Bones Written by local author



    16. 3.5 stars from Kat, read the full review at FANTASY LITERATUREDisclaimer just so you know, some of the books we review are received free from publishersNightborn is the second novel in Lou Anders THRONES BONES series for middle graders I enjoyed the first novel, Frostborn, for its likeable protagonists, sense of adventure, touch of humor, and warm heartedness It d be best to read it before beginning Nightborn.The beginning of Nightborn finds Karn, our young gaming hero, back on the family farm B [...]


    17. Karn Korlundsson was heading to the fur market when the dust clouds started Taloned claws swooped over him and bore him into the clouds He soared through the sky to Sardeth, the Blasted City, home to the massive dragon Orm The great creature s interest in the renowned young man was keen Word had reached Orm that a dreaded Horn of Osius, forged to control the formidable dragon race, might still exist When Karn learned that his friend Thianna had disappeared while searching for it, he agreed to Or [...]



    18. An excellent follow up to the first book, adding a new character and new locations I wasn t sure about the new character at first, but I very much liked that Karn and Thianna were allowed to progress they had their character development and sort of learned their lessons in the first book, and I m glad they weren t sent back to square one, taught the same lesson over again, or anything like that Also A dragon content, Orm was already my favorite character I thought the modern style of humor was [...]


    19. When I first read Frostborn, two years ago, Nightborn didn t exist But I adored the first book, and so I tucked it away in my mind to come back to later, hopefully when there was a sequel I forgot It wasn t until I was playing tafl one day that I remembered And this time, there was a sequel 30 pages in I considered marking it a DNF I was having a hard time getting into it, but I decided to give it another chance I am so glad I did I love these books, with all their culture, their humor, their lo [...]


    20. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.After reading Frostborn, the first Thrones and Bones book, I knew that I had to read Nightborn, the second book in the series Lou Anders world intrigued me, and I wanted to see where he would take readers next Luckily for me, the publisher sent me a copy to review Readers can enjoy the second book in the series without reading the first book, but I wouldn t recommend it Lou Anders sets the foundation of Karn and Thianna s friend [...]


    21. Karn is a gamer his favorite game is Thrones and Bones after which the series is named When his best friend Thianna half giant, half human is kidnapped, he s tasked by the dragon Orm to find her Easier said than done, for he must travel far from his rural home to the city of Castlebriar, deal with duplicitous elves, and solve riddles Thianna was on a quest to find a horn, much like the one they discovered in book one, FROSTBORN these horns make it so the user can speak with and coerce magical be [...]


    22. Review originally posted on Children s AtheneumIn this sequel to Frostborn, Karn Korlundsson has settled nicely into his life as the son of a Jarl, learning how to trade and bargain His adventuring days are over, or so he thinks When Karn is whisked away to have a another face to face encounter with a dragon, he finds himself on a quest to find his missing half Frost Giant friend Thianna and another horn of power However, finding a half giant isn t as easy as he thinks it should be, especially w [...]


    23. Nightborn Thrones Bones 2 by Lou Anders was a fantastic follow up to its predecessor, Frostborn We are once again immersed into a world of magic and mythical creatures, and are once again shown the value of true friendship.Where book 1 showed us the growing friendship between Karn and Thianna, Nightborn shows us the value of the friendship that these two characters have That through thick and thin, and with whatever is on the line, the friendship and loyalty that Karn has for Thianna supersedes [...]



    24. Nightborn is the second book in the Thrones and Bones trilogy It picks up shortly after the events in Frostborn Karn is learning to be a farmer and a trader and doing well at it Before he can settle in though he is summoned by the dragon Orm for a quest It appears the Horn of Osius from the last book is not the only one Orm has already sent half giant Thianna after the new horn, but she has disappeared Karn is sent south to find her and the horn Karn is not the only one on the quest for the horn [...]


    25. This was an action packet adventure that definitely succeeded its predecessor in a way that not many authors can do From the start I am captivated by the fictional world where elves, dragons, giants, gnomes, and exist Aside from the adventure and action, which there is a ton of, I found that there wasn t a single part of this story where I was bored or didn t want to continue reading It takes a lot in a middle grade book for me not to get bored and Lou Anders excelled in this.It was also great [...]


    26. Another delightful entry in the Throne and Bones series, with the right mix of adventure, friendship, and humor to make it enjoyable for boys and girls alike I m starting to suspect that, when it comes to comfort reading, I might actually prefer middle grade to YA, since the emphasis in middle grade fantasy is on adventure and we re likely to see strong friendships between boy and girl characters Frostborn was a winner in that regard, and this follow up does not disappoint.Karn comes into his [...]


    27. In this sequel to Frostborn, gamer Karn Korlundsson is basking in the glow of his heroics regarding the horn of Osius Much to his dismay, he learns that there is a second horn that must be found and destroyed Even worse, his best friend Thianna has gone missing while searching for it He immediately sets off to find her To complicate matters, two Dark Elves are searching for the horn as well, and will stop at nothing to get it This is another exciting adventure filled with riddles, strategy, intr [...]
