The Bone Gate

Once bitten twice shy doesn’t apply to books by Rory Michaelson. Quite on the contrary, for their Lesser Known Monsters series I would rather say, hit me, baby, one more time!

Joking aside, I am not joking. Unlike some authors who fall victims to their later books in the series, Rory has upgraded Lesser Known Monsters to The Bone Gate, adding a few spicy The Little Book of Lesser Known Monsters short stories in between their two novels.

Rory’s queer, paranormal romance, horror, dark fantasy cuisine is gourmet. It is a three-star Michelin literary gastronomy.

From jokes, funny dialogues, giggling and LOLs as an appetizer, The Bone Gate warms up to a suspenseful, dark, bloody, and raw main course squirming on your plate with decaying and foul-smelling body remains. If your stomach is not full and rising after licking your fingers on the last page of the book, Rory will serve you a hungry expectation of a delicious dessert, The Thorn Earth (Lesser Known Monsters Book 3) coming out in 2022.

I am overjoyed and grateful to the author for receiving a complimentary copy of The Bone Gate. And for the time I enjoyed spending with this entertaining, funny, dark, and scary story while holding a beautifully designed paperback in my hands.

Kudos to the author Rory Michaelson, illustrator Axel Toth, and Rory’s and my book designer Dean Cole!

I have purchased an eBook and received a paperback this book at no cost and with no obligation toward the author. When I like a book this much, I will shout from the rooftops about it. This is my honest review, as honest as it gets.
