Product description

Review

“Henry’s storytelling is her own sort of witchcraft.”—Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Ararat and Red Hands

“Hair-raising, heart-stopping suspense from start to finish. A perfect nightmare of a novel."–Rachel Harrison, author of The Return

“Henry has expertly walked the line between psychological suspense and horror to crowd-pleasing results for years, and this title is no exception. Hand out freely to fans of Sarah Pinborough, Jennifer McMahon, and Zoje Stage.”–Library Journal

“Near the Bone features compelling and creative characters, descriptions of snow so realistic that they'll make you reach for a blanket and a monster so terrifying that it is sure to haunt the dreams of even the most stoic reader...Near the Bone is a terror-ridden yet poetic hike that will leave your nerves frazzled and heart.”-BookPage


Praise for Christina Henry's novels


"Satisfyingly upends the familiar tale of a clever girl, a dangerous wolf, and a brave savior, and folklore fans will enjoy this bloody near-future variation on a familiar theme."—
Publishers Weekly

"An engrossing page-turner that will delight anyone who loves running through thought experiments about the apocalypse.”—Paste 

"A riveting rewrite of Peter Pan."--
The Wall Street Journal

"Multiple twists keep the reader guessing, and the fluid writing is enthralling....This is a fine addition to the shelves of any fan of children's classics and their modern subversions."--
Publishers Weekly

"This wild, unrelenting tale, full to the brim with the freedom and violence of young boys who never want to grow up, will appeal to fans of dark fantasy."--
Booklist

"A horrifying fantasy that will have you reexamining your love for this childhood favorite. Smooth, velvety prose blends well with the deliciously complex characters and intricate story line."--
RT Book Reviews (top pick)

"It's full of magic and passion and courage, set against a convincing historical backdrop....Henry's spare, muscular prose is a delight. I loved this novel."--Louisa Morgan, author of 
A Secret History of Witches

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best offering by a incredible writer. Try her other books!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 25, 2021
I adore Christina Henry's books and have devoured all her others, loved them and recommended them. I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed in this one. Don't get me wrong, I was gripped by it, however it felt like it came to such an abrupt end, with no real tying up of loose ends.
As always, Christina isn't afraid to up the gore factor and it has her usual almost magical qualities to it , I was just left wanting somewhat.
However, it certainly won't put me off buying more. For me, all her previous books have been the full 5 stars 🌟 so I think for one to not quite make the same high grade is perfectly acceptable.
If you're a fan please don't avoid it on the strength of this review, however , if you're considering this as a first read of this author , please try one of her others instead , as to me, this is not a true representation of her incredible writing talent.
