There’s more than one way to stoke the flames of revenge…
Charlotte Rowe spent the first seven years of her life in the hands of the only parents she knew—a pair of serial killers who murdered her mother and tried to shape Charlotte in their own twisted image. If only the nightmare had ended when she was rescued. Instead, her real father exploited her tabloid-ready story for fame and profit—until Charlotte finally broke free from her ghoulish past and fled. Just when she thinks she has buried her personal hell forever, Charlotte is swept into a frightening new ordeal. Secretly dosed with an experimental drug, she’s endowed with a shocking new power—but pursued by a treacherous corporation desperate to control her.
Except from now on, if anybody is going to control Charlotte, it’s going to be Charlotte herself. She’s determined to use the extraordinary ability she now possesses to fight the kind of evil that shattered her life—by drawing a serial killer out from the shadows to face the righteous fury of a victim turned avenger.
TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
Bone Music is the newest from Christopher and it’s an interesting mix of Serial Killer and SciFi.
Charlotte is going through a lot and trying to deal with the aftermath of who her parents were. Then dealing with what she believes is a stalker. She is then thrown into something else, that can be understandable difficult to deal with. This story had some great character development and I can tell that the author really took his time with it. But for me it was very difficult to get into the story at his fullest. I just have a hard time reading in the third person, I feel with third person I can’t really connect with the characters on a personal and emotional level. Which as a reviewer is very important to me. I feel like I’m the outside looking in. Not to say that no one will enjoy and love this book.
Overall, I have to give this Two Boundless Stars. It was ok, but I feel it could have been better.
