THE BONE TREATY is a book that took me on an interesting ride.
But before I get started on that I feel the author deserves some serious praise.
It’s rare to find books, especially in YA fiction with a disabled character.
Joplin wasn’t really a major player in the book (until later) but she wasn’t just tucked in the background for the sake of being there.
She was strong, very much her own person and independent (as much as possible). She was also given what an important role in book 2, which is AMAZING.
This is one of the things that made this book for me. As a special needs family I am always looking for books and characters that we can relate to.
THE BONE TREATY is a paranormal romance but don’t expect it to be anything you have read before.
THE BONE TREATY has noting to do with vampires, werewolves or any of the typical paranormal elements.
Even the “love triangle”element is not what you expect. Thank goodness because I am not a real fan of love triangles.
Addison the main character is a 17 year old who admittedly annoyed me at times, but she also surprised me by using her head. Even when it came to the males in her life.
Conal, was my favourite character. He’s what most would call the “bad guy”, I however choose the “less good guy” because good/bad in THE BONE TREATY is not black and white. There are a lot of grey areas.
I like that there is a lot of mystery when it comes to the characters backgrounds, and history. Some answers come out as the book progresses, but I am hoping for a lot more answers in book 2.
The only draw back in THE BONE TREATY is I found it a bit slow and hard to lose myself in the story in the beginning.
Which is why I chose the 4 star rating.
With that said I would still recommend THE BONE TREATY and can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
