Publisher's Summary

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.

HUH?? I'm so confused LOL

Here is another book by Tarryn that I just don't think I completely get! It kept me interested from the beginning and I was enthralled throughout because I had no Idea what was real and what wasn't. I don't think I really grasped what the author was trying to say but that is about me and not her writing style. If it's not black and white, I don't always get it. I will say this was a complete mind f*ck! I love Tarryn's writing style!

The narration was good and fit the character perfectly!

Loved this journey!

What a trip! This excellent narration carried the story along swiftly and expertly. You can't help but love the main character and all her flaws. Only one part of the book left me slightly confused so I may return to it again to see if there was something I missed. Overall, I was fully involved in this story and wanted it to go on & on - perhaps there is a Margo part 2 in the works? I hope so.

Not My Favorite

What disappointed you about Marrow?

I feel that the writing was juvenile while trying desperately to be deep & mature. I don't think this story was nearly as good as it could have been. The writer tried too hard & I think it made the story fall flat in areas that should have been exciting & descriptive. Some parts I feel deserved a lengthy explanation were casually passed over, and left me throwing my hands up in the air feeling like I missed an entire chapter.

Would you be willing to try another book from Tarryn Fisher? Why or why not?

I don't see why not. Although the writing wasn't my favorite I enjoyed her creativity.

What three words best describe Audra Pagano’s performance?

Weird. Choppy. Inconsistent. The narrator would pronounce names a certain way through half the book and then all of a sudden pronounce them differently and then switch back at the end. It was very distracting. At some parts it sounded like she was stumbling through through the book, like she lost her place. Not my favorite narrator.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I liked the plot a lot, I enjoyed the creativity, I just think it could have been executed a lot better.

Not Really a Thriller, But a Beautiful Book

I'm a mystery/psychological thriller fan, and I wouldn't really call this either...not really suspenseful. However, it was very psychological. What the book lacks in suspense, it makes up for in engrossing language and well written character development. Despite my having expected it to be something different than what it turned out to be, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Fisher has a way of drawing you into the world that she has created and making you feel the things that her character feels to the extent that one can when reading fiction. I didn't mind the voice of the audio book narrator, but I didn't think she did some of the phrasing or emotion justice. She sounded a bit wooden in parts, as if she was reading the story aloud without being connected to it. That didn't detract from the story, but I did get a bit distracted by it a couple times and had to back up and listen to certain parts again. It was an excellent book, though, and one I'm glad to have read. I enjoyed Mud Vein too, so I will definitely be on the lookout for future works by this author.

Gritty and Creative

TF really knows how to write grit. And villains. And villains you end up rooting for in the end. I enjoyed reading Marrow. It wasn't my absolutely fav TF book, but it's creative and different and complicated, all of which I like.

As for the narrator, it was really hard to get past her pronunciation of human, when she said it as you-men...ugh.

Great Narration

I heard about Tarryn Fisher in Colleen Hoover's CoHorts group and everyone raves about how amazing her books are. I felt like this book had a very slow start and I kept waiting for it to pick up. It did pick up a little bit, but I still contemplated putting it down and labeling it as a DNF several times throughout the book. This was a very twisty and dark read. I felt like it was quite unique and I still have questions about Judah. There are many people who will absolutely love this book, but it isn't for me. I still think I will give some of Tarryn's other books a chance because their blurbs have caught my attention.

Tartan Did It Again

This book is a must read. I was in edge every chapter and every time I thought I had it figured out and that the end was nearing, surprise.
I enjoyed other books by this author but this was was by far within my top.

4.5 out of 5 "Margo and her Poetic Vengeance" Star

This is not your typical story…this one might make you want to DNF even…but stick with it, because it may surprise you. It did me. Thank you, Tarryn Fisher, for a story that made me stop and seriously think and will also stick with me, for a while to come.

This is not a romance, although it has something like romantic moments. It's a story about seeing things that make you angry, like really angry and taking your own form of punishment out on the perpetrators. Margo is like the Punisher.

I took a half star off, mainly because I was really confused at one point, things got all crazy. If anyone has read this, they might know where that happened at. I had to re-listen to some sections, but all in all, her ending paragraphs in the epilogue made this story make sense, somehow.

Good Read

This was a good read BUT not a fan of the narrator. She was very one dimensional in her tone an fit ruined for me some very sinister moments.
