“Henry’s latest is the tale of a woman trapped by horrifying psychological and human forces, as well as something deadly and hungry in the woods.”
Mattie doesn’t remember how long she’s been living on the mountain with William. She just knows to never make him upset. She realizes they’re not that alone on the mountain when she discovers a mutilated fox in the nearby woods.
There’s something in the woods, something that wasn’t there before, something that cries in the night.
Something with claws and sharp teeth.
Three strangers appear on the mountain, hunting for the creature. Mattie knows when William finds out about the strangers, he’s going to get angry.
Bad things happen when William gets angry.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Christina Henry is a bestselling novelist hailing from Chicago. She is the author of The Girl in Red, The Mermaid, Alice, Red Queen, the recently released The Ghost Tree, and the Black Wings series, as well as short fiction featured in the anthologies Cursed, and Kicking It. Henry’s latest is the tale of a woman trapped by horrifying psychological and human forces, as well as something deadly and hungry in the woods. Christopher Golden (Ararat, Red Hands) says: “Henry’s storytelling is her own sort of witchcraft.”, and Rachel Harrison (The Return) calls Near the Bone “Hair-raising, heart-stopping suspense from start to finish. A perfect nightmare of a novel.”
