A review by cbfredriks
The Bone Way by Holly J. Underhill


*Thank you to Netgalley and NYX Publishing for sending me an e-arc in return for my honest review.*


In general this was a sweet sapphic retelling of the Myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, but in the end it lacked in certain areas.

The romance between the main character and her wife was mostly established through flashbacks, which I'm not a huge fan of. Furthermore, there was almost no apparent worldbuilding. I never got the feeling that I could immerse myself into the world because the descriptive part of the story was entirely neglected in favor of a lot of "action".

The writing style in general was nice, but nothing groundbreaking. I did get a little annoyed with the author's habit of starting almost every paragraph with the main character's name.

Nevertheless, the main character was very enjoyable and easy to root for. It took me some time but I came around to the ending after a while. I did expect something a little different though.
