A Captivating Continuation of the Blood of the Fae Saga!

The second book in the Blood of the Fae series, Ruins of Bone, is another captivating story by Sarah Chislon. I was completely captivated by the detailed world-building, well-rounded characters, and the fluid progression of the main plot as a dedicated fantasy book reader.

The author skillfully draws readers into the magical worlds she has created with her lyrical and vivid words. Ruins of Bone’s rich descriptions, with their unsettling beauty and lurking dangers, created a picture so real that I could just feel the age-old magic pulsing through the pages.

One of the strengths of Chislon’s writing lies in her ability to breathe life into her characters. There’s no denying the character’s development, and the supporting cast gives the story more nuance. The motivations and challenges of each character are skillfully explored, giving the impression that they are real people living in this surreal universe.

The book moves along at a good clip, alternating between fast-paced action scenes and slower, more reflective passages. Plot twists are skillfully written to keep readers on the edge of their seats and wanting more. The complex network of pacts, betrayals, and old predictions gives the narrative a complexity that is thought-provoking and captivating.

Ruins of Bone stands out for its ability to combine classic fantasy elements with novel, creative concepts. Chislon skillfully weaves mythology and folklore into the story to create a magical and intriguing whole. Beyond ordinary fantasy material, the series is elevated by its philosophical depth as it explores issues like power, fate, and the consequences of actions.


While Ruins of Bone is undeniably a worthy successor to the first book in the series, it also manages to stand on its own, offering a unique and compelling narrative that will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next installment. For fans of fantasy who crave a captivating journey into a world of magic, mystery, and mythical creatures, Ruins of Bone is a must-read. Sarah Chislon continues to prove herself as a master storyteller in the fantasy genre, and I eagerly await the next chapter in the Blood of the Fae series.
