Read Boneyard (Deadlands, #3) Online Free - The newest book based on the hit Weird West RPG franchise Deadlands!
Step right up to see the oddities and marvels of The Blackstone Family Circus and Travelling Wonder Show! Gasp at pit wasps the size of a man’s forearm. Beware the pumpkin-headed corn stalker, lest it plant its roots in you!
Annie Pearl is the keeper of oddities, the mistress of monsters. Her unique collection of creatures is one of the circus’s star attractions, drawing wide-eyed crowds at every small frontier town they visit. But Annie is also a woman running from her past . . . and the mother of a mute young daughter, Adeline, whom she will do anything to protect.
Hoping to fill its coffers before winter sets in, the circus steers its wagons to The Clearing, a remote community deep in the Oregon wilderness, surrounded by an ominous dark wood. Word is that a traveling show can turn a tidy profit at The Clearing, but there are whispers, too, of unexplained disappearances that afflict one out of every four shows that pass through the town.
The Clearing has it secrets, and so does Annie. And it may take everything she has to save her daughter―and the circus―from both.
A gripping tale of the Weird West, set on the haunted frontier of DEADLANDS, the award-winning game from Pinnacle Entertainment Group.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC!
I've been a big fan of Seanan McGuire for a while so I was super excited to get this ARC, only to realize, belatedly, that it was a part of a series based on a western-style tabletop RPG filled with darkness, magic, monsters, undead, mad science, and a very particu...

Seanan, I doubted you, and I shouldn't have. #ashamed.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy for review (and additional thanks for adding the Kindle version so I didn't have to try to read this on a really tiny phone screen in an even tinier font that settings wouldn't...

While I’ve read a lot of tie-in fiction in my time, this might be one of few instances where I’ve picked up a book based on a franchise or media property that I’ve had no prior experience with. Happily, like most media ti...

I was a bit worried before I started this because I have no experience with the game this series is based on or the other two books in the series itself, but I will read every single book Seanan writes so I decided to dive right in. And although I'm sure there are some hidden Easter Egg type thin...

These characters have internal battles they are fighting before they come to the external ones. They grow in their experiences and understandings along with fighting what's after them. Great parallel here with both. Sometimes external battles help make the internal ones clearer. Annie has more ba...

This is a tale filled with rich characterisation and a story that will hold your attention. An impressive read. The worldbuilding is so close to reality that it takes little to cross into a world where monsters can be found and created. As the story progresses new facets of the characters are rev...

“Run?” asked Annie. “Run where? The trees close in on all sides. If...

I think, having read a few of Seanan McGuire’s novels now, I can safely say that she has a wonderful ability to write about the dark, the different and the downright creepy. So, given that I love the dark and the different loving this book wasn’t really a s...

I received an eARC of this book in exchange for my honest review from NetGalley.
I will be totally honest and say that Deadlands: Boneyard is not my cup of tea. I am not familiar with the Deadlands RPG system that the books are based around, but I don’t think that affected my overall enjoyment of...

I’ve read all of Seanan McGuire’s novels and so very many of her numerous short stories. She has certain themes that she’ll hit over and over. For instance, she like seasonal monarchs, Snow White, mermaids, and circuses or carnivals. (In fact, my next review will be for Into the Drowning Deep, a...
