For as long as she can remember, 20-year-old Finley Montgomery has been able to see into the future. She dreams about events before they occur and sees beyond the physical world, unconsciously using her power to make supernatural things happen.
But Finley can't control these powers - and there's only one person who can help. So Finley moves to The Hollows, a small town in upstate New York where her grandmother lives, a renowned seer who can finally teach Finley how to use her gift - a gift that is proving to be both a blessing and a curse, as Finley lands in the middle of a dangerous investigation involving a young girl who has been missing for 10 months, and the police have all but given up hope.
With time running out, there's only so much Finley can do as The Hollows begins to reveal its true colors. As she digs deeper into the town and its endless layers, nothing is what it seems. But one thing is clear: The Hollows gets what it wants, no matter what.

The Hollows Does More Than Whisper
If you like Lisa Unger's books, I think you will like Ink and Bone. I do and I did.
Lisa Unger creates great characters. I liked Finley and I loved the development of the missing girl's parents. The story was taut and compelling and spent time in unexpected places. I listened almost straight through, getting only 4 hours sleep because there was just no good place to stop.
Most of the book's characters are new to the series but the setting is familiar. (If you're new, The Hollows is a seemingly idyllic, thoroughly creepy place where people go missing at alarming rates.) In Ink and Bone, The Hollows gains full-on character status. It has moved from whispers to storming, from psychic undercurrents to teeming psychic evil. It compels first Eloise and now Findley to lives locked in battle for good over evil. It's all very Stephen King. It induced visions of a TV series, with a cast of supporting characters orbiting The Hollows, taking turns in its spotlight.
As for the narration... I have mixed feelings about Molly Pope's reading. She is quite good as the missing girl's parents, moving seamlessly between the male and female voices. With other female characters, though, she can be strident and overwrought. Further, Ms. Pope's reading is sometimes stilted, as if distracted. Perhaps the uneven narration contributed to my premonition of television... I believe this is the narrator's first audiobook. Her voices are so good much of the time that I wonder how the producers managed to release a less than perfect product.

Fire the narrator
I rarely write reviews, but on this one, if I didn't, I couldn't live with myself. NARRATOR RUINS BOOK!!! I wish I could call Unger and tell her to audition narrators herself. I love her work and feel so cheated to return this one. Did they pull Molly Pope in off the street? Such a shame!
