Goodreads Summary:

In Saskia’s world, bones are the source of all power. They tell the future, reveal the past, and expose secrets in the present. Each village has a designated seer who performs readings for the townsfolk, and in Midwood, the Bone Charmer is Saskia’s mother.

On the day of her kenning—a special bone reading that determines the apprenticeships of all seventeen-year-olds—Saskia’s worst fears come true. She receives an assignment to train as a Bone Charmer, like her mother, and even worse, a match-making reading that pairs her with Bram—a boy who has suspicious tattoos that hint of violence.

Saskia knows her mother saw multiple paths for her, yet chose one she knew Saskia wouldn’t want. Their argument leads to a fracture in one of the bones. Broken bones are always bad luck, but this particular set of bones have been infused with extra magic, and so the break has devastating consequences—Saskia’s future has split as well. Now she will live her two potential paths simultaneously. Only one future can survive. And Saskia’s life is in danger in both.

My Review:

I really liked the author’s Poison’s Kiss duology, so when I saw this one was from her as well, I hopped right on to read it! The idea of the story line being dual POV from the same MC but with a different version of herself was a neat concept!

Have you ever wondered what your life would have been like if you’d taken a different path? I’ve often wondered that, and this story gave a cool glimpse into two separate paths with a fantasy spin on it! I’d have to say Saskia’s bone charmer chapters were my favorite, though! And can I just say—Bram!

The writing created quite the page turner, and there were twists and tons of interesting descriptions! Now, based on the ending I’m assuming there will be another book?
