My Summary:  Ever since Finely Montgomery was young she has been able to see people others could not.  Her grandmother, Eloise, says she has the gift – the psychic ability to see the departed that her grandmother also possesses.  After years of struggling with an unbelieving mother, Finely decides to up and move in with Grandma Eloise for college, in The Hollows.  Quickly Finely and Eloise are at the center of an investigation involving a missing girl abducted while on a hike through the woods with her father and brother.  Are the voices Finely hears from the other side those of a girl who has passed on or is she still alive?  With winter approaching quickly, it is of upmost urgency they find the young girl soon.

My Thoughts: Ink and Bone, a well written suspenseful mystery told from third person POV, took me on an twisty-turny adventure through an intriguing psychic and ghostly world.  The characterization of the protagonist, Finely, a thrill-seeking-motorcycle-riding-bad-boy-dating young woman, had me cheering for her from the beginning.  I found the storyline of this novel to be very captivating and the prose to flow nicely.  I recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good mystery with a supernatural twist.

Upon Googling Lisa Unger, I learned she has several books out.  I look forward to reading more from her soon.
