Medicine has no cure for evil…
🔹If you got cut by an old bone in the Paris catacombs and your Haitian friend swore it cursed you, would you believe her?
🔹If people close to you succumbed to a grisly illness with no medical cure, would you start to have doubts?
🔹If a practitioner of dark magic hungered for your blood and threatened your family, would you suspend everything you believe to be true and enter an occult world as foreign to you as it is frightening?
In The Bone Curse, if Ben Oris wants to save his loved ones from a deadly illness, that’s exactly what he must do.
With the help of his Haitian friend, this rational, logical, science-minded med student must use Vodou to find a cure. But first, he must battle the mysterious priest who’s bent on vengeance and determined to have Ben’s blood as his own.
Advance Reader Copy Giveaway:
The Bone Curse (ScienceThrillers Media), a medical thriller with supernatural elements, is the first in my planned series about a scientist who gets caught up in otherworldly situations. Its release date is March 27, 2018. To formerly announce it, I have:
- 3 paperback Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) to give away to U.S. readers
- 3 electronic ARCs to give away to non-U.S. readers
Woot woot, I’m so excited I could boogie!
The hope with ARCs, of course, is early readers and early reviews, but there is no obligation to do either. Reviews can be left on Goodreads at any time. They can be left on Amazon once the book is officially published. Reviews should mention that you received an ARC from the author.
Because there are issues with holding giveaways on our blogs, I’m going to use Rafflecopter for the giveaway.
Oh, I hear you:
“Those are annoying.”
But I promise I kept the requirements to a minimum. No having to share on Twitter. No having to like my Facebook page. No having to land on Mars. Instead, all you have to do is submit your email (for winner notification) and answer a fun, simple question. Click on the appropriate Rafflecopter giveaway below to see what it is.
Good luck and…
…watch out for those curses.
Early Praise for The Bone Curse:
“A tense, perceptive tale of an investigation into a terrifying threat.” –Kirkus Reviews
“A teeth-grinding story of ancient curses and mystical remedies … The Bone Curse will keep even the most skeptical reader awake long past midnight.”—Andra Watkins, New York Times bestselling author of Not Without My Father and author of the Nowhere Series
“From the first page to the last, the tensions never let up … Bravo to Rubin for creating another fast-paced medical thriller that both keeps you turning pages and opens a window into a world most of us have never considered.”—Audrey Kalman, author of What Remains Unsaid and Dance of Souls
“A sizzling slice of Vodou served alongside methodical medical science. What’s not to love? Unique characters, a plot that galloped along, and some damn fine writing, too.”—G.M. Barlean, author of The Rosewood Series
“A cursed medical student… a vengeful Vodou priest… a vast subterranean Parisian catacomb with more secrets than the bones that rest there… what could go wrong? Take note medical thriller fans, the genre has a new contender, and her name is Carrie Rubin.”—Larry Brooks, USA Today bestselling author
