The Bones of the Past
An army created from dark magic is on the move and ready to destroy anything that gets in its way. Bialta is a city littered with criminals but protected by the Night Guard, who roam the streets to kill the monsters that devour souls. Maura, a quiet housewife, is thrown into a battle to save the city of Sacral and ultimately finds herself leading a band of mages and fighters against ruthless invaders. Jenus and his Warchosen soldiers are held captive by an ancient race thought to be long extinct. A young girl possessed by a hungry demon haunts the alleys and becomes more powerful with each passing day. Humans, mages, warlocks, and demons fight to rule this dark, magical world in Bones of the Past, the first book in Craig Munro’s Books of Dust and Bone series.
Riding on the popularity of George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones and Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicle, this recent entry into the fantasy genre isn’t quite able to pull the separate storylines together. Perhaps the second installment will provide the links between characters and plots that seem to be lacking in this complicated yet promising new series.
