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 deep into the heart of the mountains, where they will have to face both the curse and the long-hidden truths about themselves. 

A spooky and atmospheric read that is the perfect novel to quench that Halloween thirst!

The risen corpses are known as "Bone Houses" and the legend has it that it's from a decades-old curse. What brings them about? Is anyone safe? And how can they be stopped? Dive in for a fast-paced tale that will have you completely spellbound!

I devoured this book! Its unique storyline will definitely give you those gothic folklore vibes! It is extremely well written; excellent character development and a storyline that was spread out perfectly! I adored Ryn. She is the kind of female lead that I wish I had in books when I was a young adult. She was fierce! She fought hard, against both humans and undead. She stood her ground and took care of her family. Ellis was also an excellent character. The author portrayed his chronic pain so well. It was almost I could start feeling it for him as I was reading. And the goat! I loved the goat! I am not much of a fantasy reader, but this one definitely hit the mark for me. It is fantastical, dark and thrilling! A beautifully crafted tale that was the perfect pick for my Halloween read!

  1. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542
