"The Bone Knife is intriguing. That says a lot. The plot is suspenseful, and I love the characters in it. Intisar is a wonderful author. She brings out her characters in a way that they are relatable, and her world is one that you want to immerse yourself in." - Anything in Fantasy
"What a charming introduction to our characters. My only complaint was that the story was too short, so I was glad to hear that it was an introduction to a longer trilogy of books starring the main character. I look forward to learning more about Rae and seeing how she grows and progresses." - Books, Books and More Books
From the Author
The Bone Knife is a short story introducing Rae, the heroine of the companion trilogy I am writing to my debut novel, "Thorn." I can't quite remember how Rae first introduced herself to me, but I've long enjoyed her curious mix of confidence, pragmatism and self-doubt, as well as her wry humor. As I began work on Book 1 of the trilogy, I tried to figure out something of Rae's family and past. I knew she came from a functional and caring--if somewhat flawed--family. And I knew she had somehow acquired a rather nifty bone knife. The story, therefore, is about Rae before her big adventure hits her, when she's still living at home. I hope you enjoy meeting Rae as much as I have enjoyed writing about her.
