Book Review: Boneseeker by Brynn Chapman

Boneseeker by Brynn Chapman
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal/Historical Romance/Mystery)
Date Published: June 17, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books

Arabella Holmes was born different and raised different. After it became apparent she wouldn't fit the role of a proper 1900's lady, her father, Sherlock, called in some lingering favors, and landed her a position at the Mutter Museum. The museum was Arabella's dream; she was to become a purveyor of abnormal science. What her father called a BoneSeeker.

Henry Watson arrives at the Mutter Museum with a double assignment--to become a finder of abnormal antiquities and to watch over and keep Arabella Holmes. An easy task, if he could only get her to speak to him instead of throwing knives in his general direction.

But this is no time for child's play. The two teens are assigned to a most secret exploration, when the hand of a Nephilim is unearthed in upstate New York. Soon, Arabella and Henry are caught in a fight for their lives as scientific debate swirls around them. Are the bones from a Neanderthal ... or are they living proof of fallen angels, who supposedly mated with humans according to ancient scrolls?

Sent to recover the skeleton, they discover they are the second team to have been deployed and the entire first team is dead. And now they must trust their instincts and rely on one another in order to survive and uncover the truth.

Boneseeker by Brynn Chapman was a mysterious and suspenseful story starring two main characters who are the children of some pretty famous characters we all know and love. Arabella Holmes is someone everyone can relate to in some way. We may not all be scary intelligent like she is, but we've all felt like we didn't fit in with the human race at least once or twice or a million times. She grew up with Henry Watson. A Holmes and a Watson together again? Can you smell the trouble brewing? Needless to say, they have a long history. Though the story is built primarily around the mysteries surrounding some ancient bones, you do get some romance thrown in the mix as they scramble to figure out their feelings after not seeing each other for four years.

Boneseeker was a book that will appeal to a variety of audiences. Whether you like historical fiction, mystery, humor, romance, or all of the above.. this book is for you.

The ARC of Boneseeker by Brynn Chapman was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Check out my review of Where Bluebirds Fly by Brynn Chapman and Heart Murmurs by Brynn Chapman writing as R.R. Smythe

Born and raised in western Pennsylvania, Brynn Chapman is the daughter of two teachers. Her writing reflects her passions: science, history and love—not necessarily in that order. In real life, the geek gene runs strong in her family, as does the Asperger’s syndrome. Her writing reflects her experience as a pediatric therapist and her interactions with society’s downtrodden. In fiction, she’s a strong believer in underdogs and happily-ever-afters. She also writes non-fiction and lectures on the subjects of autism and sensory integration and is a medical contributor to online journal The Age of Autism.

She also writes under the pseudonym R.R. Smythe . Check out my interview with the author as R. R. Smythe!
