5☆ A Must Read Fun Supernatural Mystery

I have a guilty pleasure for vampire and Witches books, so as soon as Shannon invited me to read The Scented Bones I jumped at the chance!
I mean who could resist that cool cover it's fab!

The Scented Bones isn't like your typical fantasy vamp, witches, werewolves books.
This is a fun, magical/fantasy mystery with plenty of quirky, endearing characters , that once you start reading its hard to put down!

Angel is a Anthropologist and a Witch. Although she does

Wow, what a phenomenal paranormal must read! I loved everything about this gem of a novel! Even though this book was short & sweet and could be gobbled up in less than a day, it was packed with fantastic characters, great world building and a fast yet detailed plot!

I have to admit, paranormal is definitely my thing. I love anything with witches and vampires and werewolves, and you know what? You get all of those in this fast-paced, fun read. Angel is definitely a great heroine to root for, and learning about her history adds a lot of charm to the book that I really loved. While I could go on and on about it, I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say this...

There was a few twist and turns I didn't see coming. I always appreciate that because I ty

Entertaining mystery with many suprises.

Each bring a new element complexity to the story. Despite the solemn nature of circumstances humorous and easy to read. I appreciate her relatable emotional reactions to circumstances. Yet they don't overwhelm the heroine in her path. Dealing with paranormal hierarchy doesn't make her task any easier. Excited to see what comes next in this series.

Usually when you think of paranormal characters like witches, werewolves, vampires etc. you think of books that are very ominous and heavy, like something with that Dun-Dun-Dun background music. When I read The Scented Bones, I was really surprised at how light and fun of a read it is. I devoured the entire book in one setting, at night, and still slept like a baby afterwards. I wasn't consumed with nightmares, or tossing round all night because I'd freaked myself out with the creepy creeps. So ...more

was keen to read The Scented Bones after taking part in the book trailer reveal in August. Even though I don’t generally enjoy horror I am a huge fan of paranormal and so the idea of a paranormal, mafia, detective book sounded fantastic!

I am going to get the bleurgh moment out of the way first and say that I am really not keen on the cover. It doesn’t really convey the quality of the writing within its pages and if I was to see it in a book shop or library I would probably walk right past. Once

This is a great, fast paced, mystery that I could not put down. The plot is tightly woven, with intriguing characters, and a mystery that kept me guessing. I enjoyed this book and following along as the clues were put together.

At the moment I flipped the first page of The Scented Bones I began a journey through a world I now feverishly await to delve back into. It’s a gripping journey that breaks down the modernity of everyday life and reveals an antique paranormal complex beneath.
From her seemingly mundane occupation to her deep paranormal past, Angel is a character whose circumstances tear her from a life of normalcy and in turn, push you closer to the edge of your seat. As the holiday spirit is in the air, someone’

If you’re a fan of the paranormal, then this is the book for you! From shape-shifters, to witches, to vampires and were wolves, Angelina Kernerhas created a unique world, full of fascinating characters. I honestly couldn’t put this one down.

The Scented Bones was a fun read which I couldn't put down until the last page and Angel, made for a great lead character! I could tell the author put a lot of research into the forensic and other parts of the story. I especially loved all the interesting characters and all the paranormal infusion.

There were some great twists that left me craving for more books in, "The Svabodina Case Files" collection.

Overall rating: 4.6

I am a huge fan of a certain similar TV series so thus storyline with paranormal characters elevated my interest. Of course this authors ability to breathe life into these characters quickly captured my attention and I disappeared into the pages happily. There are crap loads of intriguing situations and details so needless to say, I want more ! A wonderful read that I am glad I have been exposed to! All my reviews are always voluntarily written.

Angel is a forensic anthropologist and a witch. She's studying a skeleton when she discovers that it isn't human and then it vanishes. Working with a psychopomp and werewolves will prove challenging, if not deadly. Will the victim have justice or will Angel join them?

Goes down as another off my 2019 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book with non-human characters. We have witches, werewolves, vampires and many more that will show up as the series continues. The Mafia paranormal families are causing trouble and Angel seems to be at the centre of it with a bones case she was working – one where they go missing. Vampires – the Kamorra – and werewolves – the Tarotia – seem to be at the top of it, but which to be more afraid of is anyone’s guess. Let’s the supernatura ...more

Werewolves, witches and vampires, a paranormal mafia- oh my! The story features Angel, a unique forensic anthropologist who also happens to be a witch. Her case involving missing bones of a supernatural victim makes an interesting, entertaining mystery. This mundane loved it and highly recommends spending an afternoon in Angel's world.
