Marrow by Tarryn Fisher is set to release later this year, and like Mud Vein–and the others before it–most can’t wait to get their hands on Margo’s story. I’ve been lucky enough to have read a very small bit of Marrow so far. And I’m chomping at the bit for more. In true Tarryn style, we’re getting what we want from her stories, yet it’s still different enough to keep me engaged.
So–below is the synopsis and a teaser graphic. Tell me, what do you think? Have you read Tarryn’s other books? Share this post, comment with the link to where you shared, and I’ll pick a winner to receive a signed copy of any of Tarryn’s books (US only).
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.
I am a real life villain, truly. I drink sick amounts of Starbucks. Most of the time my hair smells like coffee. I was born in South Africa, and lived there for most of my childhood. I moved to Seattle just for the rain. Rome is my favorite place in the world so far, Paris comes in at a close second. I read and write more than I sleep. When I was eleven, I wrote an entire novel about runaway orphans, using only purple ink. I am addicted to Florence and the Machine and will travel to see concerts. I love scary movies and giraffes. I spend way too much time on Facebook. Meet you there?…
