#Weekly Book review via NetGalley ~The Cold Is In Her Bones by Peternelle van Arsdale.

The Cold Is In Her Bones

By  Peternelle van Arsdale.

the cold in her bones

Milla’s whole world is her family’s farm. She is never allowed to travel to the village and her only friend is her beloved older brother, Niklas. When a bright-eyed girl named Iris comes to stay, Milla hopes her loneliness might finally be coming to an end. But Iris has a secret she’s forbidden to share: The village is cursed by a demon who possesses girls at random, and the townspeople live in terror of who it will come for next.

Now, it seems, the demon has come for Iris. When Iris is captured and imprisoned with other possessed girls, Milla leaves home to rescue her and break the curse forever. Her only company on the journey is a terrible new secret of her own: Milla is changing, too, and may soon be a demon herself.

Suspenseful and vividly imagined, The Cold Is in Her Bones is a novel about the dark, reverberating power of pain, the yearning to be seen and understood, and the fragile optimism of love.

The characters in this book were very interesting the villains very complicated, and a plot pulled from a dark fairy-tale.  This was a very suspenseful and quick read, one that held my interest from cover to cover with a very satisfying ending.

Thanks again to NetGalley for the opportunity to review this book.

Available from www.amazon.com, www.amazon.ca, www.kobo.com, and other fine bookstores and libraries.
