Review: Crossroads of Bones by Luanne Bennett

Title: Crossroads of Bones
Author: Luanne Bennett
Series: Book One in the Katie Bishop Series
Genre: Urban Fantasy

My Rating: 4 Stars!


Book Description:
Katie Bishop would have taken her secret to the grave, but . . .
a bunch of fat cat society folks smelled her out and made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

Katie just wants to run her tattoo business quietly under the radar. But when a man walks into her shop and hands her a drawing of the same tattoo she's been dreaming about for weeks, things start to spin out of control. The last two people who tried to apply that tattoo are dead.

Only half human, it's her other half that an elite group wants to hire-a group of Savannah's more privileged citizens, including the city's reigning coven of witches.


There's a rogue god on the loose, and Katie is the only one who can send him back to hell before he breaks open the crossroads and lets the underworld waltz right in-if he manages to get that deadly tattoo inked onto his back.








Crossroads of Bones was such a, pick up on a whim, not expect anything, but got a whole lot of fun, surprise kind of a read. I truly had no expectations going into this one other than I liked the cover and the synopsis sounded intriguing. 

I picked it up because I wanted something fresh and different and lets face it, I'm always on the lookout for a new UF series.

I got all of those things in Crossroads of Bones. It was fun, exciting, original, adventurous, and full of the voodoo hoodoo madness that I've come to expect in stories set in the south that are riddled with the unknown and the mysterious.

I devoured this in one day and I was sad that book two wasn't out yet. I loved Katie and her rag tag bunch of friends and I wasn't ready to say good bye to them yet. I can only hope that book two isn't that far away because I think this is a series I could truly get into and enjoy and love. 

So glad I took a chance on it and can't wait for more.

  9. Books that surprise you are the best! I love grabbing something random and falling in love with it! I like that the main character does tattoos, and I'm curious how witches and a god fit into her life. Thanks for sharing this! <3

  16. You've been picking up some great urban fantasy. That's the thing about reading a book in series fast, then you have to wait a while for the next books.

    1. I know, that is always the worst. This is one of my favorite genres though and thankfully I have a lot of series to keep me busy until the next ones come out.
