Charlotte Rowe spent the first seven years of her life in the hands of the only parents she knew - a pair of serial killers who murdered her mother and tried to shape Charlotte in their own twisted image. If only the nightmare had ended when she was rescued. Instead, her real father exploited her tabloid-ready story for fame and profit - until Charlotte finally broke free from her ghoulish past and fled. Just when she thinks she has buried her personal hell forever, Charlotte is swept into a frightening new ordeal. Secretly dosed with an experimental drug, she’s endowed with a shocking new power - but pursued by a treacherous corporation desperate to control her.
Except from now on, if anybody is going to control Charlotte, it’s going to be Charlotte herself. She’s determined to use the extraordinary ability she now possesses to fight the kind of evil that shattered her life - by drawing a serial killer out from the shadows to face the righteous fury of a victim turned avenger.

Superhuman miracle drug!
So I'm not real sure how I feel about this book. It had a lot of potential but somewhere along the way I derailed.
The publisher's description sets up a story of a very traumatized young woman with PTSD. When her psychiatrist gives her an antidepressant (it's not) she instead gets superhuman strength that lasts for three hours. There's a lot of other things going on but that's pretty much the gist of the story. She's a guinea pig and he wants to study her.
I guess I was looking for a little more reality and a little less Marvel. The book is enjoyable and I did finish it. I think it could have gone into the background more and fleshed out the characters better.
I don't think this it worth a credit but if it were on sale it's entertaining if not believable.
Lauren Enzo does a very good job narrating.

Really good story
Would you consider the audio edition of Bone Music to be better than the print version?
No - the voice of the narrator can be distracting at times. My main issue is the way she reads different voices, particularly male voices. Generally, she does a very good job, but I found that every time she did a male voice, it distracted me somewhat and pulled me out of the story a bit. I wasn't quite as immersed in it as I like to be. All in all, her performance is quite good, but a male narrator for those parts would have been better.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Bone Music?
I really appreciate the moment early on in the story when the main character stops being a victim and hiding from the world and realizes she can do amazing things.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Yes it did.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Victim or vigilante?
Any additional comments?
Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the genre. Narrator does a very good job considering her task. One person reading all voices in a story is not easy to do and make the story believable.
