Read full description of the books Skin and Bone:This, the sequel to "Tooth and Claw", is an altogether darker story than the first. The abandoned animals have been stricken by drought, and are in a very bad situation indeed. A few brave souls decide to follow the river upstream to find more water and food, but instead find more suffering and peril. Meanwhile, the animals back in the town have fallen for the devious wiles of Skrinkle and his clan. Skrinkle is a shape-shifting fox, who lures the animals in with supplies of food and water, only to turn on them and terrorise them in an even worse way than the bogeyman of the first novel. But a new character offers hope - can they really defeat Skrinkle if they do as he says?
Stephen Moore is particularly skilled at communicating the atmosphere of resignation and fear which pervades this book. He creates and deepens the characters very subtly, making them utterly believable. Although this is a YA novel, it would probably be better for the top end of the age group - Moore doesn't shy away from the suffering and death of some of his cast which, while upsetting for the reader, makes the entire story so much more plausible. The novel is not without hope, especially in the ending, and celebrates resourcefulness and friendship. Highly recommended.
I received a free ARC from the author, in return for an honest review.
Read information about the authorStephen Moore is the author of the fantasy novel, GRAYNELORE. Published by HarperVoyager. (Paperback and Ebook.)
A published author since 1996 I've also written several well received fantasy books for older-children/middle-grade and young-adult readers. Including, among others, TOOTH AND CLAW, SPILLING THE MAGIC and FAY. (Published by Crossroad Press.) Along the way, I've had books translated into Italian, Hebrew and Russian. (Though, to date, I've never set eyes on the Russian translation...!)
Truthfully, I'd rather be writing books than writing about myself. I live in the North of England. A beautiful land I never tire of exploring; full of ancient Roman history, medieval castles and remnants of the infamous Border Reivers.
Long ago, before I discovered the magic of storytelling, I was an exhibition designer. I have fond memories of working in the strange world of museums. Sometimes I can still be found in auction houses pawing over old relics!
I've shared my home with a number of the animals that frequent my books, if not the flying pigs! I love art and books, old and new. I'm into rock music, movies, theatre and RPG video games! But mostly I like to write, where I get to create my own worlds. If I had to name my favourite book of all time it would be, Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stephenson. The first book to inspire me as a child. Maybe, my own books are OK too?
