Ash and Bone - by Lisa Von Biela - Ghost story
Ash and Bone is an OK ghost story set in the fictional town of Cromwell Bay, California.
Lisa Von Biela's writing shows promise, "The whole town stank of rot. As did his soul. He'd kept his secret for years. No one alive knew what really happened that day. No one had deprived him of the spoils of his acts. Whatever remorse he'd felt at the time had been tucked away so thoroughly he couldn't recall it at all."
My problem with this novella is its predictability and seemingly forced story. The circumstances are just too convenient and the characters are one dimensional.
Ash and Bone is available now from Darkfuse Publications through Amazon.com. If you have an Amazon Prime membership you can read it for FREE through the Kindle Owner's Lending Library.
