Book Review: Marrow

Title Marrow

Author Tarryn Fisher

Release Date April 16, 2015

In the Bone there is a house.

In the house there is a girl.

In the girl there is a darkness.

Margo is not like other girls. She lives in a derelict neighborhood called the Bone, in a cursed house, with her cursed mother, who hasn’t spoken to her in over two years. She lives her days feeling invisible. It’s not until she develops a friendship with her wheelchair-bound neighbor, Judah Grant, that things begin to change. When a neighborhood girl, seven-year-old Neveah Anthony, goes missing, Judah sets out to help Margo uncover what happened to her.

What Margo finds changes her, and with a new perspective on life, she’s determined to find evil and punish it–targeting rapists and child molesters, one by one.

But hunting evil is dangerous, and Margo risks losing everything, including her own soul.

Review

As soon as I read the blurb for Marrow, I knew I had to get my hands on it. After waiting (very patiently!) for a few months, it was finally out!

I thoroughly enjoyed *most* of this book. Like, 95% of this book was amazing. It was the twist that I didn't enjoy... mostly because I'm not completely sure I understand. Not understanding tends to lessen my enjoyment of something (as I believe it would for most people). However, it was still an amazing book. I love this one even more than I love Mud Vein. However, this is one of those books that I find hard to recommend. Some will absolutely love it and some won't. I understand that (even if I totally disagree).

Tarryn Fisher is pro at writing these books that are dark and twisted and complex. I think she's an incredible writer. I will certainly continue to read her books.

Favorite Quote
Judah says that where we’re from is in us—in our marrow. You can put us anywhere else in the world, but we carry our origin with us everywhere we go. If he’s right, I’ll never fucking get away.
