Fate vs. Free Will with Breeana Shields

a few months ago

In a world where bones have magical powers and are able to tell secrets of the past, present, and future, things can get a little complicated. This is especially true for Saskia whose mother is a Bone Charmer. It’s her responsibility to tell seventeen year olds, including Saskia, what their futures hold.  

When Saskia is assigned to be a Bone Charmer herself and is paired with a partner she hates, she is infuriated that her mother chose this particular path when there were other options. As they argue over her future they cause a fracture in one of the bones.

Now the bones, and Saskia’s future, are split. She will have to live two different timelines simultaneously until she can make things right again. But which path will she choose?

“I was trying to explore the ideas of fate and free will and what roles those play. What do we get to choose and what is meant to be?” Breeana Shields said about her third novel, The Bone Charmer. “I hoped readers would think deeply about those things.”
