Praise

“Henry’s storytelling is her own sort of witchcraft.”—Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Ararat and Red Hands

“Hair-raising, heart-stopping suspense from start to finish. A perfect nightmare of a novel.”–Rachel Harrison, author of The Return

“Henry has expertly walked the line between psychological suspense and horror to crowd-pleasing results for years, and this title is no exception. Hand out freely to fans of Sarah Pinborough, Jennifer McMahon, and Zoje Stage.”–Library Journal

“Near the Bone features compelling and creative characters, descriptions of snow so realistic that they’ll make you reach for a blanket and a monster so terrifying that it is sure to haunt the dreams of even the most stoic reader…Near the Bone is a terror-ridden yet poetic hike that will leave your nerves frazzled and heart.”-BookPage
