Bone Dressing by Michelle Brooks

Description: Time is running out … the Dark that’s been chasing Syd for many lifetimes has finally caught up with her …

Sydney Roberdeau lost her parents as a young girl. Waiting for her life to start and the freedom that will come with her eighteenth birthday, Syd spends much of her time haunting the local cemetery. It is there, stretched out among the dead, that she feels most alive, most at home. Until one rainy night when Beau, Sarah and T.J. crash her ghostly sanctuary, appearing out of nowhere, turning her already inside-out world one degree past upside down.

Syd must now revisit past lives, dressing in the bodies of her previous selves … bone dressing. Her only chance to outrun the evil breathing down her neck is to face her own worst nightmares and her strongest desires. But if she can’t stay out of trouble in this life, how can she possibly fix mistakes from past lives? And just how many lives has she lived, loved and lost? What is Syd exactly, and what will she risk for the life of a man she doesn’t remember, the man she spent a lifetime with, the man she loves? Everything … including her very own life?

Bone Dressing, the first in a series of seven books, will carry Syd and Beau on an adventure that transcends life itself.

This was a book that was hard to put down. The action and the intense feelings of Syd put you right in the middle of the action. There are few authors that have actually wrapped me up in their description so much that I have actually cried right along with the main character, and this is one of them.
After reading Michelle’s bio, I knew I had to read this book. Her dead on sense of humor was too good to resist and this book didn’t disappoint.
The only reason that Bone Dressing didn’t get 5 stars from me was because at times I found myself lost – kind of like I was missing something important. It may have been just me, and I will read the book again to make sure. It wasn’t enough to distract from the reading or not want to continue following Syd and her new companions in their next adventure. If you like YA fantasy written with vivid descriptions and a wonderful sense of humor, don’t miss this story.
Can’t wait until the next installment!
