Publisher's Summary

"Twisty, grisly, genre-bending and immersive, Not Even Bones will grab you by the throat and drag you along as it gleefully tramples all of your expectations." (Sara Holland, New York Times best-selling author of Everless)

Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market - until she's betrayed.

Nita doesn't murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet - her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they've been "acquired". Until her mom brings home a live specimen and Nita decides she wants out; dissecting a scared teenage boy is a step too far. But when she decides to save her mother's victim, she ends up sold in his place - because Nita herself isn't exactly "human". She has the ability to alter her biology, a talent that is priceless on the black market. Now on the other side of the bars, if she wants to escape, Nita must ask herself if she's willing to become the worst kind of monster.

Oh snap

I didn't even know this was a book until somebody had done a comic based on this book that I thoroughly enjoyed but was too impatient to wait for the next week, and somebody put in the comments that this was a book and oh my goodness I'm so glad they did AND talk about a cliff hanger ending 😱😱😱😫😫🥰

Amazing, thrilling story from start to finish.

As soon as I started listening I couldn't stop. Only listen to when you have 10 consecutive hours to spare :)

Definitely worth your time

I felt that the story was a little lacking at the beginning, but my view changed literally 45 minuets in. Well done

A great concept...

...and a strong start. but obviously, the ghost writer quit a couple chapters in, and was replaced by this Rebecca person. The author took what was a clever idea and an interesting world, and strangled it with lengthy pointless prose, characters that make the most frustrating decisions, and casual racism.

This is the first book that my fiance and I actually didn't finish, as it was that frustrating to listen to.

I wonder if the webcomic is better.

Entertaining Premise

Creative and original plot that loses a bit of pace toward the end. I love the lead, though. She's fun to follow. Will read the second book.
