Review of The Bone Charmer
Review (4.5 Stars): The Bone Charmer was an intriguing and thought-provoking story about how our life doesn’t always turn out the way that we want it to. Saskia comes from a long line of Bone Charmers and she doesn’t plan to follow in her mother’s footsteps. When the day comes for the bones to decide her path in life, Saskia becomes upset and breaks the special bone in half causing her to have two paths in life. She will live each of these lives simultaneously until her mother can heal the broken bone but she must do it quickly for Saskia’s life is in jeopardy in both of them.
This book had me from the very first page and I couldn’t get enough of Saskia’s story. The Bone Charmer was a fresh, well-written and brilliant tale that had this reader guessing how Saskia’s story would actually end. Would she stay a Bone Charmer or a Tutor like she had originally wanted? This book is going to stay with me for some time.
