The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wholly compelling dark tale of mystery and intrigue with some terrifically witty turns of phrase as orphan Pin Carpule meets the Bone Magician and gets drawn into a world of the secrets surrounding bone magic and its powers. The more Pin discovers, the more scared he becomes. Will he be able to save himself? If you like this we recommend you try The Black Book Of Secrets by the same author, which is equally gripping and cleverly drawn.

Synopsis

The Bone Magician by F E Higgins

The Silver Apple Killer preys on the people of Urbs Umida, a rotten and wretched city. Two things connect the victims they all had a small silver apple in their pocket, and they had all recently visited a notorious inn to see one of two acts: the hideous Gluttonous Beast and the astonishing Bone Magician.
