Actual rating: 3.5/5

Engelmeier’s debut impressed me on many levels. It starts off with a strong voice, a wide cast of characters, and a distinct sense of place and setting. Not an easy task when the story encompasses the whole Multiverse and revolves around the possible end of the Infinity. Imaginative and unique world-building coupled with a solid plot and a healthy dose of twists and turns kept me glued to my e-reader. Sure, few things irked me and resulted in a lower rating but don’t let it fool you. En

Let me start by saying that I made it about 50% of the way through this book before I finally gave up. I’ve been working on it for a few weeks, but it feels like a chore. I was waiting for the promised plot to get going, but it’s just not there. It’s long, complicated, and disorganized.

As a grad student, I don’t get a lot of time to read for fun. I honestly can’t remember the last time I got to read something I enjoyed before this, but the second I got A Shard of Sea and Bone, I couldn’t stop reading. 530+ pages flew by in a matter of a few days. L.J. Engelmeier has a way with words, and here, that means that she’s managed to make them hook the reader so much that the amount of new character and place names don’t overwhelm so much as excite. With each new person, realm, or spe ...more

L.J. Engelmeier, granddaughter of a mortician, grew up in a household where death was dinner table conversation. She could tell you in detail about men who shot their cheating wives during breakfast, phantom feet wearing spatterdashes that walked the funeral home’s halls, and the hilarious story of a homeless man’s head that lived in a bag in the garage. She lives in southern Illinois with her cat ...more
