Day 52: The Skeleton Song by Angela Kulig
Summary From Goodreads:
Drowning might not be the way most adventures start, but it is the only way at Skeleton Lake. When Death is your only companion, darkness is always on the horizon.
In the prequel to SKELETON LAKE, Cassie chooses
the wrong brother. That leads to a series of events that take all of her choices away. For in a world of beautiful bones and false flesh, sometimes life after death is killer.
It’s time for another edition of Frodo’s Hobbit Sized Reviews! This is where I write a review in the time I have before I go to work or before I go to bed. Short and sweet just like 2nd breakfast!
In this prequel we find out more about both of the main male characters of Skeleton Lake, Raiden and Conrad, as well as much more about Cassie, the underlying current of the book. Where as in Skeleton Lake Cassie is but an ever-present whisper, in The Skeleton Song we see everything from her eyes. She has a powerful voice and a compelling one as well. She isn’t a very likable character because of the actions she takes, most notably romantically.
The writing is excellent per usual, the story is a nice one and does give the added depth that I was looking for. I can see why Kulig wants The Skeleton Song read after the main novel, it enriched the experience of Skeleton Lake, but didn’t overpower it. There is action, drama and romance in The Skeleton Song. It’s a wonderful short piece, if you liked Skeleton Lake you’ll love this too. Thanks as always for reading and come back tomorrow for Day 53!
