Week 40 Review: By These Ten Bones

From Goodreads:
There's hidden places all over this land-old, old places. Places with a chain for them to chain up the wolf when it's time.

A bone-chilling tale of werewolves and love, set in medieval Scotland

A mysterious young man has come to a small Highland town. His talent for wood carving soon wins the admiration of the weaver's daughter, Maddie. Fascinated by the silent carver, she sets out to gain his trust, only to find herself drawn into a terrifying secret that threatens everything she loves.

There is an evil presence in the carver's life that cannot be controlled, and Maddie watches her town fall under a shadow. One by one, people begin to die. Caught in the middle, Maddie must decide what matters most to her-and what price she is willing to pay to keep it.

My Review:
What a really great book! I loved it! It had a really unique twist on a pretty popular myth, that the myth was actually more of a human shape then what the name would suggest, which I hope is a big enough hint, but will this do?
And now I feel a bit silly seeing the Goodreads description, but I like the picture :)

I just really liked that twist, it was really good, and yeah.

I also liked the characters, the sacrifices that they went through...well, giving your life for someone is pretty big, and how the book dealt with that in the end, just amazing!

Loved this book, love this author's writing, and yeah. Check it out!
