Trina, feed up with her father using the p ...more
Big thanks to Amazon Publishing for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review!
This cover caught my attention and then after reading the first line, "They didn't plan to kill my mother", I was hooked. BONE MUSIC by Christopher Rice looks like an intimidating read with the over 400 pages to it, but I promise you, it's a fast read!
Charlotte Rowe spent the first part of her life being raised by the only parents that she knew. Little did she know, they were a pair of serial killers who had ...more
4.5 this book so surprised me stars
Walking into my local library, I spotted this book on a shelf for new arrivals. Looks interesting I thought, but really another thriller? This one looked different because it was not only a thriller but also had a sci fi mention in its book cover blurb. So, I picked it up thinking I'll probably read a bit and set it down. I was totally wrong.
This book provided many hours of the "I just could not put it down" minutes. It was fascinating how the author wove a sto ...more
I didn’t do too well with this one. Interesting premise, and good writing, but it just didn’t do anything for me!
I’m so thankful to Little Bird Publicity, Thomas & Mercer, and Amazon Publishing for providing my free copy of BONE MUSIC by Christopher Rice - all opinions are my own.
“All she feels is the bone music and the sense that she has become not darkness but a great fire, bringing a sudden, blazing end to it.”
This book literally grabbed my attention from the very first sentence and just kept hold of me the entire time I was reading it! It’s one outstanding thriller and Rice is one hell of a writer ...more
The magic of a story, for me, begins and ends with characters. Whatever the plot is, however intricate and compelling it might be, I first have to believe the characters and I have to feel the emotions. I had that connection here, immediately. Charlotte is a riveting main character. No character feels minor. I got to know them all, to varying degrees, and they all came alive on the pages.
The writing drops us right in the midst of Charlotte's life. Rice strikes that perfect balance between provid ...more
First in The Burning Girl sci-fi thriller series and revolving around Charlotte Rowe, as she’s known now.
A story narrative that uses in medias res with that confusing interview to pull you in and then goes backwards and forwards, using lots of flashbacks and incorporating the angel-devil inner conflict, mostly with Charlotte and somewhat with Luke.
It’s a common enough sub-theme, that family is what you make it, not just blood. You can’t help but laugh and cry at the same time at the start ...more
DNF @ 26%. I like kick-ass chicks but not chemically enhanced.. As for the male lead - “But he’s a bigger fan of actually getting to know a woman, and relieving himself with porn until the time’s right to hop into bed with her” - I’m old-fashioned, but not my notion of a romantic hero. The flat present tense prose is terribly monotonous too.
