The Bone Keeper: A Novel
Twenty years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods trying to find the supposed home of The Bone Keeper. Only three returned. Now, a woman is found wandering the streets of Liverpool, horribly injured, claiming to have fled The Bone Keeper. The investigating officer, DC Lousie Henderson, must convince skeptical colleagues that The Bone Keeper may be more than an urban legend. However, when a body is unearthed, the case takes on a much sinister turn.
The Bone Keeper definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. The author did a fantastic job setting the scene throughout the whole novel. The sense of something dark lingering within the story itself made me want to read on, although the story has a sense of being a crime thriller mixed with just the right amount of horror, making the story even more terrifying. As well as the writing being absolutely amazing, I couldn’t help but enjoy the lore of The Bone Keeper. The lore behind the myth of the Bone Keeper, as well as the song or poem about the story, had a small-town vibe about it, as if the legend was passed down as the area’s buggy man (much like the man with the hook of urban legends).
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
