Book Review: Bone Dressing by Michelle I. Brooks

Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Published: April 20, 2011 
Publisher: Savage Enterprises

The Blurb:
Time is running out & the Dark that's been chasing Syd for many lifetimes has finally caught up with her.

Sydney Roberdeau lost her parents as a young girl. Waiting for her life to start and the freedom that will come with her eighteenth birthday, Syd spends much of her time haunting the local cemetery. It is there, stretched out among the dead, that she feels most alive, most at home. Until one rainy night when Beau, Sarah and T.J. crash her ghostly sanctuary, appearing out of nowhere, turning her already inside-out world one degree past upside down.

Syd must now revisit past lives, dressing in the bodies of her previous selves & bone dressing. Her only chance to outrun the evil breathing down her neck is to face her own worst nightmares and her strongest desires. But if she can't stay out of trouble in this life, how can she possibly fix mistakes from past lives? And just how many lives has she lived, loved and lost? What is Syd exactly, and what will she risk for the life of a man she doesn't remember, the man she spent a lifetime with, the man she loves? Everything including her very own life?

Bone Dressing, the first in a series of seven books, will carry Syd and Beau on an adventure that transcends life itself.

My Review:
Bone Dressing is the first in what will be a series of seven books by Michelle I. Brooks. The blurb and premise behind the book really grabbed my attention; however the external and internal chatter from the main character was constant and distracting through the first half of the book. I always enjoy a sarcastic and snarky character in my reading, but I felt like it really took away from what was going on within the story. For the second half of the book, the amount of babble diminished significanlty, and I was able to really enjoy the story without the sidetracking and distractions. I grew very attached to Beau. He has a lot of secrets, and I hope to learn them as the series progresses. If you can overlook the blabbering of the first half, you'll find an interesting story. Give it a chance.
