    This urban paranormal fantasy exceeded my expectations. I'm so ready for the next book in this series! I love the different povs through out this book. The different creatures introduced are some we know well and others we may have only heard of and never understood but the author roun...

    I definitely enjoyed this new mythological fantasy story. It was very original in overall plot. Unlike other similar stories, it did not spend much time with the backstory of our main character. A little more of that might have been nice, but sometimes that comes across as just "filler...

    Rachel Marks hits it out of the park with this tale of adventure, love, and intrigue. I loved the characters and the plot. This is a story of demigods and demigoddesses, pixies, and druids. There is a secret to uncover that rises from the past to reveal and an evil deed that destroyed ...

    When a young homeless girl is invited to a party her whole world implodes. Sage has fandangled her way through the foster system, slept in odd places but had no idea that Celtic mythology was about to come to vivid life. Maybe it's because Sage has seen the seedy side of life, the unde...

    This was a good story I was not expecting it to be how it was. I kinda liked that I had no idea what the heck was happening and where the story went. A homeless girl who grew up on the streets makes friends and gets to go to a party where she can eat, rest and shower. Her life complete...

    This is one of those books that you devour in one setting, I couldn't put it down even though I was bleary-eyed. Sage is a young girl whose mother was an addict and instead of staying in the foster system she chooses to live on the streets with her person she considers her best frie...

    I've read all of Rachel Marks' books so far, and this is definitely my favorite! Maybe it's because it's been a while since I've read a Fae-centered book. (OK, technically Celtic gods, but the feel is the same.) Or, maybe it's just Marks' wonderful writing. Probably both :). But mostly...

    This was a good story I was not expecting it to be how it was. I kinda liked that I had no idea what the heck was happening and where the story went. A homeless girl who grew up on the streets makes friends and gets to go to a party where she can eat, rest and shower. Her life complete...

    I definitely enjoyed this new mythological fantasy story. It was very original in overall plot. Unlike other similar stories, it did not spend much time with the backstory of our main character. A little more of that might have been nice, but sometimes that comes across as just "filler...

    Rachel Marks hits it out of the park with this tale of adventure, love, and intrigue. I loved the characters and the plot. This is a story of demigods and demigoddesses, pixies, and druids. There is a secret to uncover that rises from the past to reveal and an evil deed that destroyed ...

    When a young homeless girl is invited to a party her whole world implodes. Sage has fandangled her way through the foster system, slept in odd places but had no idea that Celtic mythology was about to come to vivid life. Maybe it's because Sage has seen the seedy side of life, the unde...

    I've read all of Rachel Marks' books so far, and this is definitely my favorite! Maybe it's because it's been a while since I've read a Fae-centered book. (OK, technically Celtic gods, but the feel is the same.) Or, maybe it's just Marks' wonderful writing. Probably both :). But mostly...

    First off, this book was MUCH better than I was expecting. There was much more depth to the story than I expected, since it was marked as sci/fi & fantasy, but ALSO Teens/YA. Some of the Teen/YA books tend to skim the surface of depth, but don't always hit it. Readers are quick...

    I've read all of Rachel Marks' books so far, and this is definitely my favorite! Maybe it's because it's been a while since I've read a Fae-centered book. (OK, technically Celtic gods, but the feel is the same.) Or, maybe it's just Marks' wonderful writing. Probably both :). But mostly...

    Fire and Bone Oh my goodness, what a deeply engrossing book! Sage is a homeless waif, abandoned at a young age, she is scared by it. Then all of a sudden she finds out she is so much more. This is a world of Gods, Demi's, vampires and oh so many creatures of lore. This story is full...

    THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD. Ahem. Seriously, this is a fantastic, immediately-engaging YA urban fantasy that mashes up Irish mythology and Southern California. I was happy to provide it a blurb! ...

    I loved this book and can't wait for more of this tale! Great story! It's got a little of everything I love in a story! Gods and Goddesses, magic and mayhem! Characters you care about! ...

    Rachel Marks hits it out of the park with this tale of adventure, love, and intrigue. I loved the characters and the plot. This is a story of demigods and demigoddesses, pixies, and druids. There is a secret to uncover that rises from the past to reveal and an evil deed that destroyed ...

    When a young homeless girl is invited to a party her whole world implodes. Sage has fandangled her way through the foster system, slept in odd places but had no idea that Celtic mythology was about to come to vivid life. Maybe it's because Sage has seen the seedy side of life, the unde...

    This was a good story I was not expecting it to be how it was. I kinda liked that I had no idea what the heck was happening and where the story went. A homeless girl who grew up on the streets makes friends and gets to go to a party where she can eat, rest and shower. Her life complete...

    Fire and Bone is a blend of dark fantasy and humor, integrating ancient Celtic mythology with modern day Los Angeles. I'm all about it! Aged out of foster care and living on the streets, Sage is ripped from everything she knows and discovers that she is a Celtic demi-god with burgeonin...
