Bone Music (The Burning Girl Series Book 1) review

Bone Music (The Burning Girl Series Book 1) review

               Excellent Book   The prologue of the book is written in first person from the character Trina’s point of view. Trina is the daughter of a murder victim who was raised for the first seven years by the people who killed her mother. The prologue was so wonderfully written that it sucked me into the story from the very first paragraph. The rest of the book is written in third person and follows…
