"Every one of them is scarred."


As soon as I read the synopsis for The Bone Cutters, I had to snag a copy. This book has a unique premise, and I was very interested in seeing what happened. The synopsis sounds like a speculative fiction version of Unsane, which is awesome.

I'm not sure how to explain my feelings on this book. It starts off well, and then is not focused on the bone cutters as much as I expected. They aren't even in the book as much as other characters, which was odd to me.

Wild, enticing concept--wasn't as central to the book as I'd have hoped.

Promising debut though :)

Strange and terrifying, Dory has been sent to a mental hospital that harbors horrible things. I think the insight to her horror and treatment in this facility by far makes your insides cry. A bone sniffing cutting cult starts a chain reaction that is sends the hospital into crisis mode. Dory finds some salvation and sanity but not without a dash of supernatural. At 103 pages, to much review is a spoiler. Read the story description, tells it all! How this book ends, well that’s the best or worst ...more

I received an Advance Reader Copy (ARC) of my friend and fellow Stonecoast alum Renee S. DeCamillis’s new book. It’s called The Bone Cutters and it’s due out on September 1st from Eraserhead Press. I must thank Renee and the press for the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Anyway, I stepped slightly outside of my comfort zone with this one since I haven’t read much bizarro horror. I’m more into traditional horror, but I do love me some psychological horror, ...more

Dory finds herself in her closet with a bed, a mental institution, under the care of a redheaded nurse with a nametag reading Nurse Hatchet.
Dory doesn’t understand why she has been committed to this odd place. The staff seems shady. She’s being overly medicated for a condition she doesn’t believe she has, but she’s crazy or she wouldn’t be here, right?
She is thrown into group therapy where she quickly realizes she doesn’t belong. This group is full of addicts. She can see their scars, but she

Renee S. DeCamillis gives us a story pared to the bone.

Coming in at a shade under 24,500 words this is a quick read, made significantly quicker by the simplicity of language and rapid pace.

The somewhat unfortunate revelatory back cover blurb gives away far too much of what makes the story interesting— and it IS genuinely interesting. Although there is a strong hint in the title it doesn’t give the reason why the bone cutters are indeed bone cutters or whether it applies to people, creatures or
