Rae knows how to look out for family. Born with a deformed foot, she feigns indifference to the pity and insults that come her way. Wary of all things beautiful, Rae instantly distrusts their latest visitor: an appallingly attractive faerie. Further, his presence imperils the secret her sister guards. But when the local townspeople show up demanding his blood, Rae must find a way to protect both her sister's secret and their guest. Even if that means risking herself.

What people are saying:

"The Bone Knife was interesting, intriguing and kept me wondering what would happen next throughout the whole of it. The pace of and way Intisar tells the story helped keep this air of mystery and darkness around the characters, especially around the unexpected fairy visitor, Genno Stonemane." - Black Lilies Are Deadly 11/7/2012

"Rae was a wonderfully illustrated character. She isn't your typical damsel in distress, beautiful, perfect, blah, blah, blah... but she was actually human. She is disabled, looking at her foot, she isn't very beautiful, and she doesn't trust beautiful things. But. She has spirit, she is protective of her family, and absolutely wonderful in her own way. I loved Rae." - Anything in Fantasy 11/6/2012
