I honestly had a great time with this novel.
That really comes through in your review.
Despite finishing it so quickly, I held off writing my review because I wasn't quite sure how to put into words how much I enjoyed the way Rubin tugged and tied the storyline together to make such a cohesive and enjoyable novel. I'm still not sure if my review will do it justice.
I think you probably have done it justice - it sounds like a great read.
Thank you for your kind words! :D

I've only read a few medical thrillers in my life, and the one I do remember was awesome. I'm not too into blood and guts, so if there's not too much of that I might enjoy it. Thank you for the nice review.

Amazing review. The theme seems to be interesting. It would be different reading about this kind of medical fiction which also has black magic part in it. However, as the reviewer said, that some scenes are quite descriptive and spoke freely about blood which I am not sure I will be able to read because it gets me filled with anxiety.

This is a nice concept especially to those youngsters who didn't know about black magics or voodoo thing. This is a must read for those people who loves to read about adventure and mysteries. :wink2:

The review says that The Bone Curse is a medical thriller that has a black magic plot too. It can be quite interesting to see both together in a novel. As the book is properly edited and fast-paced, it could be a quick read. I like having this intriguing novel on my shelf. Thanks for the unique writing style of Carrie Rubin. It makes me happy that the reviewer has enjoyed each bit of this novel.

I mostly love to read supernatural books, but when you stated that the author has a descriptive writing style, well, I can get down with that. I liked to be pulled right in, as if I'm sitting on the character's shoulder or walking right along side them. I'd love to read this!
