Mystery/Thriller

Ink and Bone by Lisa Unger

This book was given to me as an advanced copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

When I read the description for this novel, I almost jumped up and down in my seat for excitement. It literally has everything that I love all rolled into one. Mystery? Check. Crazy killings and kidnappings? Check. Badass female protagonists? Check!! Supernatural events? CHECK, CHECK, AND MORE CHECKS! I’m so grateful I got a chance to read this novel so here is my review!

Finley Montgomery is not your ordinary twenty-year old. For as long as she can remember, Finley has had a special gift: she can see into the future and can see beyond the physical world, allowing her to make supernatural things happen. But Finley has no control over her powers, which seem to be growing stronger every day. The only person who can help is her grandmother, Eloise, who lives up in the Hollows, a small town in upstate New York. Finley decides to move there to continue on with her life – while learning how to use her gift. But this “gift” seems both a blessing a curse, as Findley finds herself drawn into the investigation of a young girl that has been missing for ten months. With time running out, Finley is starting to feel the supernatural pull of the Hollows. Will she be able to get to the little girl? Or will the Hollows take her instead?

This book was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Every single aspect of it was well thought out. The story, the characters, the supernatural… it all fit in seamlessly. This novel had so many different areas that it explored; from the need to belong and know who you are to the question of whether there is an afterlife, everything was covered in a brilliant way. I could not put this book down and nor did I want to! Apparently, there were three short stories that the author wrote prior to this novel that were on the same topic of The Hollows; I plan on getting my hands on them ASAP, just because I liked the story so much! There is no need to read the short stories before this one as it all flows well. I cannot wait to read more by this author and I urge you all to give it a shot, too!

Happy reading~
