Bluebirds Audio Book

Share
From the voice actress:Winding down on production of the audiobook Where Bluebirds Fly by Brynn Chapman.

This is such a rich story. Hard to categorize, it's part science fiction, part historical romance, part YA. Two orphans lives are entwined (although they are born centuries apart) as they struggle with the Salem witch trials, a mysterious corn maze, time shift, childhood trauma and healing, synesthesia, Asperger's, and so much more.

Look for it's release in July, 2014 on Audible and Amazon. Meanwhile, here's a tidbit of what's to come . . .

Boneseeker review

Share
Made me super happy, and a little teary.
ARC Book Review: Boneseeker
posted in Books by wingedcreature
Boneseeker CoverBook: Boneseeker by Brynn Chapman

Expected Publication is June 17, 2014 by Month9Books|Expected Number Of Pages: 345

Where I Got It: I got a digital review copy directly from Month9Books, which hasn’t influenced my review in any way. Promise!

Series: None that I’m aware of (but I’m hoping there’s a sequel coming)

Genre: YA Historical Fiction

You can find Boneseeker on goodreads & Brynn Chapman on Twitter, Facebook & her website

Goodreads Summary:

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.

What I Thought:

I really enjoyed Boneseeker! It’s different, but different in a good way.

It’s definitely a different take on Sherlock Holmes, and there’s something very philosophical about the book. I definitely can’t wait to read it again, because I feel like it’s a book that needs at least a couple reads for everything to sink in.

I have to admit that I’ve never read Sherlock Holmes, and after reading Boneseeker, I’m a little inspired to read Sherlock Holmes now. But I liked that Boneseeker followed the story of Arabella and Henry, and their friendship/relationship. And I love the historical feel of the book, and how odd Arabella seemed. Yet her personality worked so well for the book. She really is spirited and adventurous and smart and I loved that about her. She and Henry are a great team, and they really balanced each other out.

Arabella really is the kind of person I could working at a museum, and working at the Mutter Museum seems to fit her too. A museum of strange things seems to fit her curious nature. And with people following her in order to keep her from the expedition so she doesn’t discover Nephilim bones made it more interesting. Especially given that Arabella very much believes in science, and thinks the bones found are human ones. Searching for these bones at a time when the science of studying bones seemed relatively new is different, but a different I like because the book was set during a time when things like phrenology (measurements of the skull that told you about a person’s personality) were popular. Science really has come a long way, and the different areas of science in Boneseeker do a great job of showing that.

Let’s Rate It:

Boneseeker is really different but in a good way! I loved Arabella, and I wish we saw more of her in Boneseeker. And I’m also hoping that there’s a sequel, because I’d love to see where things go for both Arabella and Henry. Boneseeker gets 4 stars.
