    I enjoyed this book and how fast paced it was. Little adventures, lots of view points and a little romance make this book a fun fast read. Love the strong willed female main character, Gabrielle. Hope she gets her wish.

    Another lighthearted and fluffy novel, this time focusing on Tristan getting together with Rosalie and Drekh finding his place in life. Again: simple and sweet. The narrative voice is charming.

    Reviewed by Jocelyn Pearce for TeensReadToo.comReaders met Gabrielle, the half-Elf princess of Verdeau with a talent for healing, in Holly Bennett's THE BONEMENDER. Now she's back in THE BONEMENDER'S OATH, along with many characters whom readers of THE BONEMENDER will be glad to see back in its sequel. The war between Gabrielle's people and those of the mysterious Greffier across the Krylian mountains is done, but Gabrielle's struggle to keep her people together and herself alive, while keeping to the oath she swore as a bonemender, is far from over. She's not alone, however; she's got Feolan, the Elf she loves, Derkh, the boy from Greffier whose life she saved during the war, and her family. Speaking of her family, Gabrielle's brother Tristan has troubles of his own. He's fallen in love with Rosalie, but he's not alone in wanting her as his wife. The dark and dangerous LaBarque wants Rosalie for himself, and he's crazy enough to do whatever it takes--unless Tristan can stop him in time, saving himself as well as Rosalie. Aside from their personal troubles, there are politics to consider for the people of Verdeau. They want peace in the Kryllian Basin, after the war in which many of their people, including Gabrielle and Tristan's father, the King, were killed. However, the Greffaires might have different ideas about what is to come. Objectively, THE BONEMENDER'S OATH is not an exceptional book. The writing isn't breathtakingly brilliant, nor the plot. Still, though, everything mysteriously comes together to make a powerful story that will grab the reader's attention and refuse to let go! I read this book in one sitting, and I know I won't be alone in that. It is recommended to have read THE BONEMENDER before reading this novel; I don't know how confusing it would be to someone who has not read that, but certainly more so than to someone who has. THE BONEMENDER'S OATH will meet the expectations of readers of Holly Bennett's previous book, with the same great characters and way of drawing you in completely; it is a highly recommended read for fans of fantasy!

    It was kind of difficult to orient myself in the beginning, mainly b/c the sequel hits the ground running exactly where the first book left off. Having read the first book some years ago, I struggled to reestablish connection with plot and characters. Most series will catch the reader up on previous events rather early, but not this one. It's not a fault necessarily; the books may simply have to be read immediately one after the other for the best effect.The author has a lyrical style which isn't pretentious. It's hard to balance beautiful language with high tension. The author manages to convey much with little, and for someone whose eyes normally glaze over during setting descriptions, I enjoyed her imagery very much. Things that might have been handled differently were the pacing and the overall plot. The thread with Tristan/Rosalie/LaBarque was the weakest point of the story, even though it takes up half the length. This is why I didn't give the book a higher rating. The whole LaBarque revenge ploy seemed like unrelated, flimsy filler compared to the Derkh/Feolan/Gabrielle arc, which had more continuity and gravity in the context of the first book. I wish the author had spent more time in certain scenes; the book seemed to rocket along, and I'd sometimes feel like I'd missed an important event. I normally think that books can't move fast enough, so for me to think something moves too quickly... well, it was a first.Anyway, I will proceed on to the last book in the series. I have faith that things will end well for me as a reader and for Gabrielle et al. =]

    I'd like to start by saying that I've enjoyed this series so far,both Bonemender and now, Bonemender's Oath. I was enchanted by Gabrielle, the half-Elf princess of Verdeau with a talent for hand healing. What I liked about the main characters in the Bonemender series is that they are not only believable, but their people who I'd like to know personally as friends. The war between Gabrielle's people and those of the mysterious Greffier across the Krylian mountains is over, but Gabrielle's struggle to keep her people together and herself alive, while keeping to the oath she swore as a bonemender, is far from finished. She's not alone, however; she's got the Elf Feolan, her soul mate, Derkh, the boy from Greffier whose life Gabrielle saved during the war, and her family, including Tristan who has fallen in love with Rosalie, but he's not alone in wanting her as his wife. The dark and dangerous LaBarque wants Rosalie for himself, and he's crazy enough to do whatever it takes--unless Tristan can stop him in time, saving himself as well as Rosalie. Objectively, THE BONEMENDER'S OATH isn't the best book I've read, but it's a moving story that will grab the readers attention and carry you through to the end of the story. It certainly drew me in completely and I certainly would recommend this fantasy to anyone who enjoys this genre. Jack Murphy

    First Reactions: I read the prequel to this over a year ago and it took a few moments for me to catch up in the story of Gabrielle, Féolan and the other characters. Holly Bennett's style is completely different from the most recent books I've read (or atleast for this small series). You will read a few paragraphs with one character and their POV and then the next moment you are somewhere else reacting to what the other Charry did or doing something at the same time as the last little scene.Gabrielle's the main character, but the other characters you meet are equally as strong since you read about them a lot and experience their problems and thoughts. I think I'd say I like the style except she jumps just as I'm in the moment and I have to wait. Oh well though. Here books aren't as long as Inkheart and Inkpell, but they hold that fantasy element that keeps the reader's attention throughout the novel.

    I read through this pretty quickly, though it's hard to tell if it's because it's a quick read, or if I just liked it so much I didn't want to put it down. The book picks up pretty quickly where the first one left off, so at first, if you haven't read the first one very recently, it can be a little confusing. But it smooths out from there. This time around, there were multiple storylines to follow, but it never got convoluted or confusing. Because of this, however, it was hard to figure out the over-all storyline of the book. However, the book flows well and the characters are just as fun as the first time.

    I'm enjoying these books. They are fairly non-complex ("simple" sounds so insulting); the action is not too intense or gorey; the romance is quite tame. In fact, I have to say that I like the fact that virtually all of the characters are not only believable, but nice people; the kind I would enjoy being around. So often, antagonists and side characters are neurotic and certifiably annoying; is it so they stand out? So the conflict is easier to write? I don't know. But these characters, I like. The plot is somewhat predictable, but interesting enough to keep me reading. Perfect sit-around-all-day-fighting-a-cold books.

    This was a good sequel to The Bonemender. The shifting point of view is sometimes difficult to follow, but it also drives the story and kept me reading. I also like the balance of strong male and female characters. The only part I hate was the cover of the book. Who is that a picture of? Gabriele is supposed to be in her 30s so I don't think it could be her. Despite the unattractive cover I would still recommend this book to any fantasy lover.

    This book was good if you liked the first(The Bonemender). It didn't have as much charm as the first, since we were already introduced to the world and wonder of the things in it, so it's not a book you want to pick up if you haven't read its predecessor. However, those who enjoyed The Bonemender will enjoy it for the continuation of the story and characters they liked.

    It was sweet but tried to have too many plot lines for such a short book. I hope things get more streamlined in the next one

    Sequel to 'The Bonemender'. Didn't seem quite as strong or novel as the first, but still enjoyable.

    I liked the first book better but this book was by no means substandard. The story line wasn't as interesting to me but once again I loved the characters.
