Seventeen-year-old Aderyn (“Ryn”) only cares about two things: her family and her family’s graveyard. And right now, both are in dire straits. Since the death of their parents, Ryn and her siblings have been scraping together a meager existence as gravediggers in the remote village of Colbren, which sits at the foot of a harsh and deadly mountain range that was once home to the fae. The problem with being a gravedigger in Colbren, though, is that the dead don’t always stay dead. The risen corpses are known as “bone houses,” and legend says that they’re the result of a decades-old curse. When Ellis, an apprentice mapmaker with a mysterious past, arrives in town, the bone houses attack with new ferocity. What is it that draws them near? And more importantly, how can they be stopped for good? Together, Ellis and Ryn embark on a journey that will take them into the heart of the mountains, where they will have to face both the curse and the deeply-buried truths about themselves. Equal parts classic horror novel and original fairytale, The Bone Houses will have you spellbound from the very first page.
I really enjoyed this read. I thought it was a had such a fun setting and also such a fun cast of characters. I don’t normally love books about zombies but this book so refreshing and just a fun fast pace read. I really did enjoy the main characters in this book a lot. I found them both to be super compelling. I thought the characters voices could have been clearer because I sometimes struggled to remember who’s head I was in and would have liked something like chapter heading to make it more obvious. I rather enjoy this read and thought it was such a solid standalone read, that impressed me. I will def read more by this author in the future.
