Bone Dressing by Michelle Brooks

Syd is a 17-year-old high school student with a whole lot of woe and angst. A little too much angst in my opinion. It seems like the first 50% of the book was devoted to an internal monologue on how she was dealing with the world and what was being thrown at her.

I wish that the description had emphasized that this was a paranormal romance. I normally don’t go for romance. It’s just not my thing and I found the romantic slant rather tiresome and tawdry.

The overall premise of the book still hooked me as well as other aspects of the plot. There’s a tame panther. There’s a precocious 8 year old. There’s also the matter of reliving Syd’s past lives to right the mistakes they made which is why I had started reading the book in the first place.

So the book wasn’t a complete loss, I also liked the characters despite Syd’s overly embittered tirades and her loss of control where her hormones were concerned over Beau. She was not a bad character. Just given to excess. I suppose that’s what teenagers do, but for the reader’s sake! Go easy!

Taking the plot into consideration and the basic structure of Syd’s character, I give this book 3 of 5 stars. I’m not sure I’m going to continue reading this series, but you never know how optimistic I can be when it comes to the written word.
