BOOK REVIEW: The Bone Factory

Posted on July 1, 2009. Filed under: 1 |

The Bone FactoryThe Bone Factory by Nate Kenyon is a quick, chilling horror story that will have you racing for your child’s room to make sure everything is okay. As the story begins, Dave, Helen and Jessica Pierce are excited to be moving to the Jackson area as Dave finds work on a hydroelectric project taking shape in Canada. What they don’t know is that a farmer has been found mutilated, a little girl has disappeared from her home, and deep in the woods a deputy found a gory storage shed all near this hydroelectric facility. Has Dave been hired as a Patsy? Can he protect his family so far away from civilization? But the house is paid for by the company and the family is sequestered at the finest resort in the area until they can move in. It seems like so much good fortune that it can’t be true.

Helen is a devoted teacher that just wants to do right by her daughter. She has been really stressed in the months Dave has been out of a job. Dave is a very educated engineer who just wants credit for his own ideas and is trying to make this job work for the good of his family. The most exciting character in this book is Jessica herself who has extraordinary visions and intelligence. Even the location is a character in this book as it plays its part in chilling, slowing and isolating the characters. The theme of this book is definitely horror of not providing for or protecting your family and learning to believe in the unseen and in psychic powers.

This book made my heart race. It was fast paced and a quick read. The characters were believable and I enjoyed the mention of places familiar to me. If you are sure you want to be scared make sure your family is around. I give The Bone Factory a big thumbs up and would recommend it, especially for camping out.
