Book Review: Marrow

by Tarryn Fisher

In the Bone there is a house.

In the house there is a girl.

In the girl there is a darkness.

Margo is not like other girls. She lives in a derelict neighborhood called the Bone, in a cursed house, with her cursed mother, who hasn’t spoken to her in over two years. She lives her days feeling invisible. It’s not until she develops a friendship with her wheelchair-bound neighbor, Judah Grant, that things begin to change. When a neighborhood girl, seven-year-old Neveah Anthony, goes missing, Judah sets out to help Margo uncover what happened to her.

What Margo finds changes her, and with a new perspective on life, she’s determined to find evil and punish it–targeting rapists and child molesters, one by one.

But hunting evil is dangerous, and Margo risks losing everything, including her own soul.

Lori's thoughts: Marrow has been on my TBR shelf since sometime early 2015. I'm trying to work through my massive TBR pile and avoid purchasing any books until I read some of what I already have. I read Mud Vein last year and loved it. I think Tarryn Fisher's writing is brilliant. I never have to worry that I'll be getting the same old story told in a different light. The psychological twists slap you upside the face and leave you wondering what just happened. Have you ever watched a movie that made you go back and re-watch parts of it because you're sure you must have missed something? Did you ever see the movie "Shutter Island?" That movie messed with my head. "Marrow" did that to me. I may need to go back and re-read part of it because I'm still wondering what was real and what was imagination. If you want to go on a psychological roller coaster ride, you have to read this book.
