#BookReview: Silver in the Bone (Silver in the Bone #1) by Alexandra Bracken

Synopsis: A series opener inspired by Arthurian legend and fueled by love, revenge, and pure adrenaline!

Tamsin Lark didn’t ask to be a Hollower. As a mortal with no magical talent, she was never meant to break into ancient crypts, or compete with sorceresses and Cunningfolk for the treasures inside. But after her thieving foster father disappeared without so much as a goodbye, it was the only way to keep herself—and her brother, Cabell—alive.

Ten years later, rumors are swirling that her guardian vanished with a powerful ring from Arthurian legend. A run-in with her rival Emrys ignites Tamsin’s hope that the ring could free Cabell from a curse that threatens both of them. But they aren’t the only ones who covet the ring.

As word spreads, greedy Hollowers start circling, and many would kill to have it for themselves. While Emrys is the last person Tamsin would choose to partner with, she needs all the help she can get to edge out her competitors in the race for the ring. Together, they dive headfirst into a vipers’ nest of dark magic, exposing a deadly secret with the power to awaken ghosts of the past and shatter her last hope of saving her brother. . . .

This title will be released on April 4, 2023.


Rating: 1 Star
My Review: The best thing about this book was the cover.  This failed to grab me through the entire story.  I swear I have the same issue with all of this author's books.  The start is amazing but once you get to the middle it falls apart.  It gets stagnate and boring and you just want to toss the book across the room.  This one was actually a little better during the middle sections but overall it just wasn't enough to keep me reading. The world building needed more and the characters were kind of boring.
