“In the Bone there is a house. In the house there is a girl. In the girl there is a darkness. Margo is not like other girls. She lives in a derelict neighborhood called the Bone, in a cursed house, with her cursed mother, who hasn’t spoken to her in over two years. She lives her days feeling invisible. It’s not until she develops a friendship with her wheelchair-bound neighbor, Judah Grant, that things begin to change. When neighborhood girl, seven-year-old Neveah Anthony, goes missing, Judah sets out to help Margo uncover what happened to her. What Margo finds changes her, and with a new perspective on life, she’s determined to find evil and punish it–targeting rapists and child molesters, one by one. But hunting evil is dangerous, and Margo risks losing everything, including her own soul.”

Marrow… Marrow… Marrow…

I mean, how do I do this? How do you make a review when all the feels are spilling out from you. I don’t know what to scoop first. It actually took me a few weeks to finally start drafting a review for this book, same with Mud Vein. Fisher, what have you done?! These books scarred me! They were too good I don’t know what to say anymore.

If you are going to read this book, make sure you read Mud Vein first. Both books are exceptional but I love Marrow more. They are kind of connected. Actually, that goes with all of Tarryn’s books. The characters are connected and she leaves messages and symbols in every book.

Marrow is about the story of Margo. She had a dark childhood. One that nobody would even dare live for. His father left and eventually her prostitute mother died. Leaving her with money and the eating house. In the course of being alone, she found comfort with Judah. They became very good friends until Judah left the town and joined his father. Because of her sad, lonely dark life, she decided to leave their hometown too and start a new life far away from the eating house.

Margo’s life was full of vengeance and revenge. She did not want anybody to feel the same way as she does so every time she heard a crime, she plans out a revenge for the victim. The things she did was where she was good at. It was planned out perfectly. All of them. And that was were the story cycled. I don’t want to spoil anymore just please read this book. It was so so so good!

Tarryn’s books are dark, sad and badass. It shows the weakness of the human nature and how they rise and become strong out of the problems that occurred to their lives. The symbolism in her writings is very relatable. You just have to look and read between the lines, every time.

If you happen to read Tarryn’s books and loved it, there are discussions groups for both Mud Vein and Marrow. Also, we have a fan base group in FB. It is called PLN. Hit me up if want to be a member of these groups. I can send you the link 🙂
