This is the third book I've read by Clare B. Dunkle, and I've really enjoyed them all. What's more, they've all been really, incredibly different books. The Sky Inside is a dystopian future scifi about a boy who leaves his domed world to find the truth. The House of Dead Maids is a seriously freaky prequel to Wuthering Heights that explains how Heathcliff is adopted by Catherine's dad. And this book is a werewolve-ish (he's like no other werewolf I've read about) romance-ish story set in probably 15th or 16th century Scotland. Wa-huh? How does one author write all these books and succeed in all of them?

I really like her female protagonists in House of Dead Maids and By These Ten Bones -- honest but not naive, hard working but not power hungry, and generally clever, good girls. I didn't mark any quotes, I think I was reading too fast for that. :)
