A power as old as King Solomon awakens when a seventeen-year-old girl marks the brooding hot abductor ordered to seize her. Addie Heaton’s not your average high school student. Orphaned at two, she’s spent most of her life reading the emotions of others. It’s a little trick she likes to call color-vision. But lately, a stranger has been trailing her, putting off shades of black and red—colors Addie hasn’t seen since the night her parents were killed—colors Addie never wanted to see again. But when Addie comes face to face with Conal Reed, owner of the terrifying shades, she learns her stranger’s a little different too. He’s brooding hot, mysterious, and all too elusive. Conal loves to materialize, and then vanish at all the wrong times. Nice. Not. After years of keeping her ability a secret, Addie’s found another person with gifts, someone who may know what she really is. But Conal’s not talking. He’s having more fun showing up uninvited, teasing her senses, and disappearing at all the wrong times. Instead of finding answers, Addie finds herself reconsidering ever being alone and naked again.




Plot | Story

The Bone Treaty has and amazing plot that will keep you absorbed from start to end. It’s not just some regular vampire paranormal, but a hardcore paranormal with some really amazing creatures. It’s plot is very unique and the elements used give it a totally new direction. I loved the sizzling love-triangle as well. The entire concept is what makes this book special for me!


The character-connect was invincible! I loved all the characters and developed a liking for almost all of them. I developed an instant connection with Addie and felt all her emotions and anger through it. The characters are so well-developed that it’s impossible to not feel connected to them!


This book has a solid love-triangle, but it’s not that ordinary stuff you read in some sad paranormal books. All the characters are so well-developed that this triangle radiates a realness about it. To be honest, it will be a great relief to find out whom Addie picks up out of the two male leads, Conal and Griffin, as both of them are just awesome! Also the friendship between Addie, Porter and Joplin is worth noting. Though the story wasn’t completely dominated by it but some major twists were and I see a lot of scope for this friendship in the coming sequels.


The writing was surprisingly simple yet absorbing. The first person narration was commendable and I really enjoyed it’s flow.


As I said earlier, the beginning was a bit slow, but I liked it anyway. After just a few pages it picked up the pace and absorbed me like a water absorbing sponge! This book is full of twits that kept me glued to it right from the start. The way Addie’s connection with Porter and Joplin was shown, I was sure that this book is really high on friendship.


The book ended on a great note with just a little bit of something that will keep you on the edge! I’m waiting eagerly for getting my hands on it’s sequel 🙂

Cover Art

The cover is not that bad but it could have been a bit more elegant. A book this good, definitely deserves the best!


The blurb is good enough to increase one’s curiosity, but there’s a lot more to this book than the blurb says. So read it for yourself to find out. If you love paranormal stuff then this one is for you.

    1. Oh yea! Just ignore the cover… lol! this book is really awesome! I’ve requested the author to send me an ARC of the sequel asap! I guess it shows how good this one is! And yea, the love triangle is great… both the guys are just awesome (one is really good and the other one is a badass but again very good!)
