The Darkness Within
What makes Bone Dressing a dark series? Well, that really depends on your definition of what makes a dark series ... dark. To some, dark may simply mean a 17-soon-to-be-18-year old girl struggling to become a woman. To others, it may be defined by that same girl learning to embrace herself, mistakes and all, or exploring her sexuality and finding herself unable to deny it. Yet other readers may see profanity, arson, past lives and cemeteries as dark. Likewise, heartache, self-hatred, even suicide, could better describe dark. And, of course, there are those who may reserve that title for teachers who abuse their authority by mentally, emotionally and sexually abusing their students.
But perhaps dark is more physical, involving torment, pain, torture, loss of blood, and murder ... or is simply defined by things that go bump in the night.
So, what about Bone Dressing, is it a dark series? That's simple, really. No matter which of these defines your darkness, Bone Dressing has it ... and so much more. Sweet dreams!
WARNING: The StoryWriter General has determined that Bone Dressing is a dark YA series and that, once reading the first book has begun, lack of completion of all seven books may be dangerous to your past lives ... and all your future sweet dreams.
