John Meaney is one of those authors that you can relate to, especially in the science-fiction world. Growing up and discovering authors, and watching Doctor Who (I mean, who doesn’t?)
Synopsis for Bone Song
Imagine a city named Tristopolis, where tall towers rear beneath a dark, indigo sky, gargoyles glide overhead, while purple cabs drive along the streets. Elevators are powered by boundwraiths. Warmth and power come from reactor piles, deep inside Energy Authority complexes, where the bones of the dead are stacked. Necroflux replays the fragmented memories and feelings of two thousand corpses in each reactor, producing a chaos of mixed identities and suffering that the living would rather not know about.
Tough cop Liutenant Donal Riordan is assigned to protect a visiting diva, Maria daLivnova, who may be a target to those who collect the bones of great performing artists.
But the dark cult is more powerful and secretive than anyone, even Donal’s non-human allies, can suspect. And he has been touched by the bones.
Science Fiction is another genre I absolutely love, especially when it has some horrific scenes. Well, basically anything with horror (even the smallest amount) makes me happy.
