chilling town secrets buried in the darkest of places.The book started off so good The prologue had me hooked but it just went downhill from there This is the second book in this series and is NOT a standalone I was so lost on half of the stuff with Eric and Susan because there was literally no backstory to help from book one to two I felt that the visions and seeing the dead stuff either needed to be amplified or just taken away I just didn t feel it enough The story line was pretty good and if it had been written differently orfully it would have been an incredible read However, the end just left me hanging with the story Like how was Gus in this whole thing Who was the Sheriff s son Where did Darla go Or What happened to Darla So many questions left unanswered Hidden Bones Review2 stars Vivian Barz thriller has some interesting ideas and dark, horror influenced sequences but is let down by clunky dialogue and unconvincing characters.Hidden Bones starts with an excellently

and helps establish some key plot points about a sinister crime organisation The first couple of chapters build on this strong start and allude to the events of the previous book in the series in a way that is not too jarring for readers like myself who approached Hidden Bones as a stand alone novel.Barz has crafted an intriguing plot featuring a missing person case and the story jumps between a number of subplots which help keep the narrative engaging However, the rising tension is often undermined by the characters making stupid jokes that seem out of place given the stressful situation that they are in Additionally, too many chapters in the middle of the book feature unnatural dialogue where characters stand around and explain the plot to each other.The descriptions of the scenary are elegantly written but the dialogue routinely ruins the atmosphere An early example of this is Chapter 5 where a sinister mood is created through the behaviour of the locals in the town of Clancy The tone is abruptly ruined by the characters commenting on how unsafe the town is for tourists I would have preferred it if the writer trusted the reader to be able to make inferences from the descriptions rather than have the characters tell the audience how they should be feeling at every point in the story.The dialogue so frustrating because it lets down the parts of the story which are genuinely great Eric has psychic powers and although this supernatural element is introduced in a slightly over the top way for people who are unfamiliar with the series so far, his horrifying visions are a real highlight of the novel Hidden Bones has some major flaws in terms of its dialogue and uninteresting characters but the fast paced plot and well written descriptions kept me mostly engaged throughout the story
