Bone Music (Burning Girl #1) Reviews
"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

Years later, the Banning are detained for their horrific acts and Trina is returned to her biological father who takes advantage of what he knew would be a story the media just could not get enough of. Trina, feed up with her father using the p ...more
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
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
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
Growing up, I was always a fan of reading. Always. A book or two here or there, sometimes more in the summer, sometimes more in the winter. But, I always read. Then came a moment in my freshman year of high school where I stumbled upon A DENSITY OF SOULS by Christopher Rice. Mind you, I do not remember how I found this novel, where I bought it, or how I had even heard of it. What I do remember vividly is every moment after I opened the novel. I remember bringing it with me everywhere, sneaking i ...more
Me this entire book:
Hi, my name is Hayley and I’m obsessed with murder, especially serial killers. I listen to a murder podcast while I eat breakfast. It’s my thing. I also love super powers. SO yay for a book that combines the two!
Except this book SUCKED! My god, it took me almost a month to finish this. I seriously dreaded listening to it every morning, it was so bad. One day my roommate walked in and asked why I was listening to a telephone operator. So, yeah, in case you are wondering the na ...more

After her rescue her father sold her story to make money with a horror movie franchise. As an adult Charlotte has gone to extensive lengths to keep herself safe.
This book weaves a tale that turns the table on the female victim trope. The theme of control and manipulation of "Burning Girl" are handled well. But there i ...more
