The Cold Is in Her Bones



One girl must uncover secrets of the past to save her friend from a terrible curse in this dark and mesmerizing story of love, revenge, and redemption inspired by the myth of Medusa.
Milla knows two things to be true: Demons are real, and fear will keep her safe.

Milla's whole world is her family's farm. She is never allowed to travel to the village and her only friend is her beloved older brother, Niklas. When a bright-eyed girl named Iris comes to stay, Milla hopes her loneliness might finally be coming to an end. But Iris has a secret she's forbidden to share: The village is cursed by a demon who possesses girls at random, and the townspeople live in terror of who it will come for next.

Now, it seems, the demon has come for Iris. When Iris is captured and imprisoned with other possessed girls, Milla leaves home to rescue her and break the curse forever. Her only company on the journey is a terrible new secret of her own: Milla is changing, too, and may soon be a demon herself.

The Cold Is in Her Bones is a novel about the dark, reverberating power of pain, the yearning to be seen and understood, and the fragile optimism of love.


My Review


If I had been wearing socks while reading this book, they would have been blown away. In fact, I am still absorbing what I read. I loved this book so much. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book by this author.

Everything about this book was awesome from Milla, the lead character to the whole storyline. There was just something about this book that had an ease about it. It was kind of like a fable tale. Milla is like the hero you never knew you needed. She was great. Her companions Sverd and Selv were more than just snakes. They were a part of Milla as her protectors. Author, Peternelle van Arsdale will sweep you away within the pages of The Cold is in her Bones!
