Time is running out & the Dark that’s been chasing Syd for many lifetimes has finally caught up with her.
Sydney Roberdeau lost her parents as a young girl. Waiting for her life to start and the freedom that will come with her eighteenth birthday, Syd spends much of her time haunting the local cemetery. It is there, stretched out among the dead, that she feels most alive, most at home. Until one rainy night when Beau, Sarah and T.J. crash her ghostly sanctuary, appearing out of nowhere, turning her already inside-out world one degree past upside down.
Syd must now revisit past lives, dressing in the bodies of her previous selves & bone dressing. Her only chance to outrun the evil breathing down her neck is to face her own worst nightmares and her strongest desires. But if she can’t stay out of trouble in this life, how can she possibly fix mistakes from past lives? And just how many lives has she lived, loved and lost? What is Syd exactly, and what will she risk for the life of a man she doesn’t remember, the man she spent a lifetime with, the man she loves? Everything including her very own life?
Bone Dressing, the first in a series of seven books, will carry Syd and Beau on an adventure that transcends life itself.

Recenzie: Trebuie sa spun ca doar citind descrierea m-am asteptat ca aceasta carte sa fie buna, insa nu m-am asteptat sa fie chiar atat de buna 🙂 Singura mea problema a fost ca pe alocuri, anumite parti a trebuit sa le recitesc pentru a intelege mai bine ceea ce vroia sa transmita autoarea. Insa, in rest, aceasta cartea are tot ce ii trebuie unui roman bun: personaje complexe, o poveste de dragoste fenomenal scrisa, actiune si umor.
Syd este un personaj foarte antrenant; este isteata, sarcastica si amuzanta, iar de-a lungul cartii nu poti sa te opresti din ras la anumite faze. Cu toate acestea, sentimentele negative sunt transmise si ele foarte bine, iar de multe ori te trezesti gandindu-te ca nimeni nu ar trebui sa treaca prin ce a trecut ea.
In ceea ce priveste actiunea, mi-a placut mult toata povestea, insa as fi vrut ca personajul negativ sa apara mai devreme. Cu toate acestea, tinand cont ca seria va avea sapte volume, banuiesc ca a avut sense intr-un fel sa introduca personajul principal la final pentru a seta scena pentru urmatorul volum.
My review: I have to say that when I read the description of this book I expected it to be good; however, I did not expect it to be THIS good 🙂 My only problem with the novel and the reason why I did not give it 5* was the fact that here and there I got a bit confused by the elements presented in it and had to go back and reread in order to understand it better. However, „Bone Dressing” definitely has all the necessary elements for a good novel: complex characters, great romance, action and humour.
Syd is a very entertaining character; she is witty, sarcastic and fun. Throughout the book you just cannot stop yourself from laughing during some moments. However, all feelings are portrayed in a marvellous way, even the negative ones, and at times you feel like no one should have to go through what she has been through.
As far as the action goes, I loved the plot, however I would have liked to meet the antagonist earlier on. Still, considering the fact that there will be seven volumes, I guess that it made sense for the antagonist to be introduced in the last part of the novel in order to build up the scene for the next book.
Nota mea: 4/5
