Bone Music (Burning Girl #1) Reviews
Bone Music was a pretty interesting audio book. I feel like I zoomed through half of the book yesterday and then the rest of it today. Well, that's because I did. I actually started the audio kind of late then I went to sleep (yes I sleep people) and started it as soon as I got to work. It definitely made work more tolerable.
Charlotte, also known as Charlie, was so freaking lovable. I instantly liked her character and thought she was a super bad ass. She also had super strength and shit when she ...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
Thank you so much Amazon Publishing and LMS for sending me a copy of Christopher Rice's new novel in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed Bone Music, it was completely unique and very refreshing. I haven't read a story quite like this one and it made it that much more engrossing. A badass female lead with a dark history, entertaining side characters, thrills mixed with science, all elements that added to make this a four star read! I can't wait to see where this series goes.
Not what I expected.
The storyline, premise, goal...all good! Characters OK. Seemed all over the place to me. Definitely not what I expected. Was not an easy read...at times did not really want to finish. Will try another of his books anyway.
Bone Music is a great read with a heroine who's trying to outrun her tragic past, rebuild her life, and learn who she can actually trust.
Charlotte Rowe was kidnapped as a child, her mother was murdered and she was raised by serial killers (this sentence alone had me hooked and convinced me to give this book a try). When she was 8, she was rescued and returned to her father, only to be exploited by him when he turns her troubled life into a book and later on into a movie franchise. ...more
"They didn't plan to kill my mother. She wasn't like the other women, the ones they stalked and captured. The ones who came to in a cold root cellar miles from where they'd been abducted, hog-tied and disoriented, their faces pressed to the dirt floor."
What an opening, right? After a long and fruitless reading slump, I was beginning to think that maybe my love of thrillers had dissipated. The domestic, trendy, psychological thrillers just haven't been doing it for me lately; I was in desperate n ...more
This is an intense, fast-paced thriller that I really enjoyed! It follows this girl named Charolette Rowe, who gets kidnapped as a baby. These serial killers murder her mother, and then they can't bring themselves to kill her too, so they raise her as one of their own. She is raised by these two serial killers until she is seven years old; when they are finally caught and she is sent home to her real father. Her Father decides to sell her story to the media and she gets labeled as the "Burning G ...more
Bone Music will take you on a fast-paced, thrilling ride through the world of 'what if' to land somewhere between reality and science fiction.
I'm not going to lie - I have a thing for superhero stories. With that said, when I first read the summary for this book (I know, I know...it's rare that I do this) I was intrigued. A thriller that also has the feeling of a superhero origin story? Um, sign me up! A strong female lead? Yep, that too!
Then I started the book and, while it was a little diffe ...more
