Osteomancy: Consume something or someone’s bones (and sometimes flesh) and gain their power (yum). For Daniel Blackland of the City of Los Angeles in the Kingdom of Southern California, this is a way of life, and of death.  Daniel has been living off the grid ever since he witnessed his father’s murder (and subsequent consumption) by the oh-so evil Heirarch (yum). Now his godfather has presented him with an offer he can’t refuse. He must breach the unbreachable and retrieve, among other things, an unfinished sword: his father’s legacy … a sword made of Daniel himself. 

California Bones is for people who like Jim Butcher, Richard Kadrey, and maybe a little Scott Lynch and James Ellroy on the literary side, and then a bit of Ocean’s Eleven and a dash of Silence of the Lambs (yum) for the cinematic side. You’ll love this gem. I feel it in my bones.
