Check It Out: The Crown of Bones

The Crown of Bones by Rosalyn Briar 
Dark Fantasy

Gisela knows about sacrifice all too well. She abandoned her education, friends, and fairy tales to support her family and care for her sister. But when she jilts a wealthy suitor, Gisela is chosen for another type of sacrifice. As an Offering to the Goddess Bergot, Gisela and seven others are sent on a deadly quest for a mythical crown. To return home, Gisela must overcome obstacles which darkly resemble the fairy tales she once believed. Weaving through a tapestry of friendship, romance, violence, and magic—Gisela becomes the target of an ancient evil force, while an ominous detail from the past haunts her at every turn. To what lengths will Gisela go to save the ones she loves? Sometimes sacrifices must be made.

Trigger Warnings: This novel contains graphic violence, cursing, and sexual situations.

The Crown of Bones is the perfect mix of old and new style fairy tales. A little scary, a little sweet, a little despair, and a little hope all combine to spin a captivating tale. This isn't a book that you pick up, read a little, and put down for later. I fell into the "just another few pages or maybe a chapter then I'll go to bed" trap, and ended up staying awake until I finished it. Reader be warned - you'll fall in love with this book, and you shouldn't start it too close to bed time! 

Where to buy: Amazon, Barnes & Noble
