Description

Bone Black is a powerful and incisive narrative that meditates on justice and revenge. After Wren StrongEagle’s twin sister Raven mysteriously disappears one evening, Wren is devastated—and angry. When the local police do little to solve her sister’s case, Wren decides it is time to take justice into her own hands. What follows is a thrilling and evocative story, and a penetrating social critique into prescient issues faced by Indigenous women today.
