The Bones of Makaidos - Chapter One

The Bones of Makaidos is almost here, so I'm posting a link to the first chapter - Click Here.

Remember, although the release date is April 1, your bookstore might not have the book by then unless you order in advance. Call now to make sure your store has ordered it, and ask when it will arrive.

Those of you who call, I would appreciate it if you would report here what the store says.

Colton said...

Will they have design like the UK covers or the paper backs? Or will you have a brand new cover for the books?

Bryan Davis said...

Colton, the cover of The Bones of Makaidos will be what you see on this blog post.

Araken said...

This is going to be so awesome!

Galadriel said...

Yes! Yes! Man, nice! Oh, I can't wait...

I love the first chapter! I can't wait to read more!

~Prism~ said...

I forgot to mention this before, but I love the images of the hand (I'm assuming it is Saphirra's?) with fire!

That's so cool!

Ella said...

Wonderful! Except for the part where I have to wait at least two more weeks before I can read it!

Nathan Petrie said...

I have some questions about who's in the cover...

There are four dragons...and I'm assuming the one in Sapphira's hand is Makaidos though I don't want you to tell me.
I'd like to know who the other three are...in the back is it Arramos and Clefspeare? or who is it?

Just curious! thanks!

Noooo!! I have to wait at least two more weeks before I know what happens!!

I'm probably guessing that Makaidos is the one in Saphirra's (or Acacia's)hand, but why would he be in that form? That's what I'm still trying to figure out.

Let's see....Saphirra is with Gabriel in the birthing garden...and in the background are two dragons...but could one be good, and one bad? And I also see the horse, (I just forgot his name...) The one other thing I see is what looks like some soldiers or something also in the background. Hmmm.....

Bryan Davis said...

I won't be giving away spoilers on who or what you see on the cover.

Be patient :-) It won't be long now.

Nathan Petrie said...

Anonymous, Gabirel is a guy...the other person in the birthing garden is definitly a girl...I'm excited to find out...though it will be a while before I can read it *sigh*

Araken said...

12 whole days? That's like...266.5 hours! 15990 minutes! 959400 seconds! 959399...

Elizabeth said...

I can't wait. Two whole weeks!!! I'm going to freak if they don't pass quickly. I can't stop thinking 'what's going to happen next?!!' Patience is not my middle name. And what patience I do have is being totally spent on waiting for this to come out. Hurry! So who's the dragon in the sky? Can't figure that out.

Anonymous said...

Nathan--It looked like a guy to me....He/she has a sword...and it's not Bonnie....

Who is it, Mr. Davis?? Could you at least tell us who that is??

Bryan Davis said...

I think I already told who was on the cover in an earlier post, but I'm zipping my lip (fingers?) now. I want to keep the secrets for a little while longer.

Elizabeth said...

Anonymous, Not Bonnie or Gabriel for sure. I'm thinkin' another anthrozil shows up. With wings. Not Bonnie 'cause this girl's dark-headed, not Gabriel, it's a girl. Who? I have no clue. My best guess is another anthrozil shows up in this book. Who knows? We'll have to wait and find out since Mr.Davis isn't talking. Patience!

Anonymous said...

I'm trying to remember what happened in the end of the last book....Because there were two former dragons....and they were talking. I'm trying to remember if they mentioned another anthrozil or not...but I can see it's a girl now. It was hard to see because the image was so small. But I don't have too much longer to wait. As soon as the library gets it in....

Elizabeth said...

Library.... good idea. I'm thrilled about this book. It's going to be soooooooooo good. Well, they all are, but a very good wrap-up book. I just hope it goes really far into the future so Bonnie and Billy, Walter and Ashley, Gabriel and Shiloh, and Sapphira and Elam can get married. Even if it's in the prologue. I just want weeks to hurry up and go by!!!

Nathan Petrie said...

Elizabeth , he did say it was bonnie in the old post..I'm sure of it and I'm gonna look back again...the covers never follow hair styles...look at some of the DIOM covers...Bonnie's got brown hair in them...

Teresa said...

I LOVED this first chapter. I can't wait for the rest. I called my local Family Christian in Chino, CA. They have no clue about it. Hopefully, the Berean store I sometimes go to will be carrying it.

Elizabeth said...

Nathan, Are you serious?! Bonnie looks blonde to me on both Raising Dragons cover and Circles of Seven. Not as blonde as Sapphira and Acacia, but still blonde. And in the books it says "blonde hair" when describing Bonnie. I don't know! I looked for that post, but couldn't find it. I guess we'll have to wait to know for sure!

I-READ said...

Elizabeth, the book says "blonde highlights"
The first chapter was amazing!!! I was skipping all around the house with excietment!!!
I am going to the book signing on the 30th. I can't wait!!!
None of the books stores around Seattle that I go to will have it, they said the will get it a few weeks after April 1st. D= Will you be selling them at the signing Mr. Davis?

Girlnextdoor said...

Some where Mr.Davis said That you would be able to tell if Bonnie had wings on the cover TBOM so if it's not Bonnie then Bonnie turned into a full fledged dragon and for some reason I just don't think he would do that to her.Because that would be cruel, and I don't think Bonnie would like it that much.
Some one might of mention it already but I'm really bad at paying attention

I really love your OOF and DIOM series and I CANT WAIT to get my copy of Bones of Makaidos. I read the first chapter the other night, and was absolutely floored!

I do have on question though. For those who ordered from the official site (I think) will the copies be shipped out before on or after the actual store release date.

Thanks in advance for the info and best of luck in any future plans.

Bryan Davis said...

I-Read, even if the bookstore doesn't have the new book, I'll have some with me.

Anonymous, I will be shipping the pre-orders out Monday morning, two days before the release date.

bookworm said...

bookworm said...

I forgot to ask before, but will you please tell me how to pronounce Makiados? I'm doing the bones of makiados for my book report and I have to present it to the class. Thanks!

Bryan Davis said...

Bookworm, there is a pronunciation guide at the end of the book. If that doesn't help, please let me know.

bookworm said...

Thanks. I just got the book (so far I love it) and the pronunciation guide helped alot.
