Fascinating world with a tough and very authentic heroine whose gift as a "storyteller" is what both gives her power and also marks her for death. I found myself drawn completely into this world and its characters pretty much from the beginning, when Sally stumbles in to find her grandmother murdered on her own kitchen floor. She manages to pass Sally a final story as she dies, about a creature called a "Bone Collector" who hunts storytellers like the two of them.

From that moment forward, Sally

Some fantasy/sf worlds ease you into them with subtle (or not) explanations of why things are the way they are. Others just plunge you in and challenge you to catch up as the story races forward. This book is definitely of the latter variety. I found myself going WTF a bunch in the beginning, even as I was intrigued by the characters and creepy situations which aren't for the faint of heart. (Eviscerated bodies anyone?) But as everything starts to make more sense and the history of what happened ...more

An unusual horror tale that hits the ground running and makes you hang on for the ride. Sally Gold is a Storyteller, learning her gift in order to fight the Bone Man, a creature who consumes people's stories by eating their bones.

This is not a tale for young people, or those who can't stand gore. But Walker makes you care about Sally and those around her, and you will find yourself reading on to see what's going to happen next.

Skin and Bones is a lush novel filled with the despair of characters trapped in a town cut off from the world. Leslie Claire Walker does a great job of giving us creepiness and horror and hope and love all at the same time. I loved the concept of the bone man and of the importance of the stories we all carry. Kudos to the author.
