Book Review of “Ink and Bone” By Lisa Unger
Twenty-year-old Finley Montgomery is rarely alone. Visited by people whom others can’t see and haunted by prophetic dreams, she has never been able to control or understand the things that happen to her. When Finley’s abilities start to become too strong for her to handle – and even the roar of her motorcycle or another dazzling tattoo can’t drown out the voices – she turns to the only person she knows who can help her: her grandmother Eloise Montgomery, a renowned psychic living in The Hollows, New York.
Merri Gleason is a woman at the end of her tether after a ten-month-long search for her missing daughter, Abbey. With almost every hope exhausted, she resorts to hiring Jones Cooper, a detective who sometimes works with psychic Eloise Montgomery. Merri’s not a believer, but she’s just desperate enough to go down that road, praying that she’s not too late. Time, she knows, is running out.
As a harsh white winter moves into The Hollows, Finley and Eloise are drawn into the investigation, which proves to have much more at stake than even the fate of a missing girl. As Finley digs deeper into the town and its endless layers, she is forced to examine the past, even as she tries to look into the future. Only one thing is clear: The Hollows gets what it wants, no matter what. (From Amazon)
I rate this book a solid 4 out of stars
** I was given this book for free, in exchange for an honest review**
This book has it all, psychics, missing children, adulterous adults, young love, tattoo’s, family love, heartbreak, shock factor, plot twists, and somewhat of a happy ending. It is safe to say it’s a bit of a roller coaster. But, a well written roller coaster. I am so glad I finally read it.
This is the first book I have read of Lisa Unger, and it’s safe to say that I will read more. There was a moment, where I was almost fearful of finishing the book, but that moment passed, and I’m glad it did.
Have any of you read this? What were your thoughts?
“Her mother always said that when you were sad or worried or angry, that you had to do something. Anything. Go for a walk. Make cookies. Draw a picture. Clean your room. Never just lie there and feel sad or mad, because those feelings become like weights, holding you down, and they only get heavier, and you only get less likely to move them.”
