Humanity as we know it ended when the earth was bathed in a blue haze from the skies. The future of our world, adolescents facing the already mind-boggling effects of puberty are mutated into creatures of fantasies, nightmares and science fiction. The transformation began with their bones shattering and rebuilding, it ended with their need for flesh and blood and the clock is ticking to the demise of the human race. How can teens, already chomping at the bit for independence handle what Fate has ...more

Shatterbones was really a surprise. The plot twists was totally unexpected. This is a must read. Makind's future may be in jeopardy.

★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ 1/5 stars

If I were the type of person who could stop reading a book once I'd started this would be a DNF for me. The plot is clichéd, the characters are one-dimensional, it hardly makes any sense, and it reads like a history book if it was written in the present tense for some reason.

I got this book while it was free on Amazon so I didn't expect much. I rarely give 5 stars. Check out my other book reviews for proof. This book deserved it. Great characters, a unique plot that kept me enthralled throughout the story. If you like horror, apocalyptic adventures or sci-fi, you should give this a chance. This won't be my last Robert Brown book and I will be happy to pay for the next one.
