I picked up this gorgeous book during a book haul a few weeks ago. There it was, on sale, coquettishly winking at me, so I had to take it home. What I didn’t know, because I have been living under a rock apparently, was that this little tease was part of a series called The Hollows, and Ink and Bone is THE FIFTH BOOK in the series! So, I have paused my reading, in order to go back and start from the beginning. That said, I’ve read enough of it to know that I like it quite a bit so far.
Ink and Bone (The Hollows #5) *Hangs head in shame
In this explosive psychological thriller by New York Timesbestselling author Lisa Unger, a young woman’s mysterious gift forces her into the middle of a dangerous investigation of a little girl’s disappearance.
For as long as she can remember, twenty-year-old Finley Montgomery has been able to see into the future. She dreams about events before they occur and sees beyond the physical world, unconsciously using her power to make supernatural things happen.
But Finley can’t control these powers—and there’s only one person who can help. So Finley moves to The Hollows, a small town in upstate New York where her grandmother lives, a renowned seer who can finally teach Finley how to use her gift.
A gift that is proving to be both a blessing and a curse, as Finley lands in the middle of a dangerous investigation involving a young girl who has been missing for ten months and the police have all but given up hope.
With time running out there’s only so much Finley can do as The Hollows begins to reveal its true colors. As she digs deeper into the town and its endless layers, nothing is what it seems. But one thing is clear: The Hollows gets what it wants, no matter what.
As I was saying, from what I have read so far, I can tell I’m going to like this series. It is a psychological thriller but it has that paranormal twist that makes it border on horror. Naturally that appeals to me. I also really like the author’s style.
I plan on making a start with Fragile now, and read these books in order. I think I’m going to have to splurge and buy physical copies of the whole series. I hope it’s worth it.
Without giving away spoilers, let me know if you’ve read this series and enjoyed it.
Have a great day!
