Mixing religious aspects with the legends of old, 24 Bones is a book that really impressed me. I'll admit that I did have to re-read the prologue once to really understand what was being set up for me. Still, from that point on I was completely immersed in this story. A warning, don't read this before bed. You won't sleep, you'll just keep reading.

Although I'm not one hundred percent certain about the accuracy of the history described here, I can say that 24 Bones makes it feel real. At the end of the day, isn't that all that matters? Michael Stewart creates a story that meshes the old world with the new, and brings to life an epic battle between good and evil. It honors the idea of balance and ultimate power. There are so many layers within Samiya's story, and it creates a whole reading experience.

It's hard to discuss the characters in detail because they are so vividly written and plentiful. Our group of heroes, and their villainous counterparts race to come out the victors in the quest for domination. I very much enjoyed the blurred lines between good and evil here. Stewart shows that there isn't a stark delineation and that intent has a lot to do with it as well. With twists, and turns, you never quite know where loyalties lie in this book.

Suffice it to say that 24 Bones drew me in from the beginning. There were slight slow parts, but really they were there to set up the stunning landscape the story takes place in. If you are a fan of books that mix fantasy and reality, that blur the line between myth and legend, this is one for you. ( )

Stupid fucking search engine on this site can't stand the preposition by. I type in 24 Bones by Michael F. Stewart and it has a spasm that melts my fucking sim card. GODDAMNPIECE-O-SHIT.

Did you know you can type 42 Hard-Ons by Mikie Stew into Amazon and that beast of a search engine will pull up 24 Bones by Michael F. Stewart? Goodreads could at least learn to accept the word by.

I'll stop now, before my phone or my head explodes.

I'm only here to say this book is fan-fucking-tastic anyway. We need to make that a new shelf: Fan-fucking-tastic.

This book was more incredible than I ever dreamed it could be. The characters were realistic. Samiya, promised to evil, was still a character the reader could love. David, promised to good, was the same. The action was incredible. I really enjoyed this book. ( )

Original review here: http://offbeatvagabond.blogspot.com/2013/05/24-bones-blog-tour-review-25-amazon....

Well, this was quite an interesting read. Michael F. Stewart has definitely delivered an entertaining and complex read. Stewart mixes both Egyptian and Christian religions. The story revolves around a war between two opposing sides. The story is about the fall of the phoenix. The balance of good and evil must be restored. But it seems the evil side, Shemsu Seth, have special plans in play to make sure they break the coming prophecy.

I won't lie, I had a tough time getting into this book. It started off interesting then took a bit of a turn and slowed down. I am all for worldbuilding, but I couldn't connect with the characters. They don't really have any discernible personalities that make them different from any other. We know they are preparing for a war. One side is killing off the other, the Shemsu Hor, who protect the 24 bones of Osiris's spine. They are trying to stop the Shemsu Seth from killing off the companions that hold pieces of the spine and giving them to the Pharaoh of Shemsu Seth. The book follows Sam (Samiya) is the child of shadow and is the leader of the Shemsu Seth. Her mother, Tara, is the a part of the Sisters of Isle. The Sisters keep the balance of good and evil. Along with Samiya, on the opposite side is David (Dawid). David left Canada to go back to Egypt from a message he receives from in his email. He also has a relict that may be a very big discovery. But he is means more to the war that he originally thought.

Like I said, the book was a little slow, but once David and his story is introduced, he kicks up a bit. The book really kicks off in about the second half. I loved it. Lots of twists and turns. The characters and the plot change pace. I love the action. This isn't your usual Urban Fantasy and it is makes it stand out. The book is suspenseful with some paranormal aspects thrown in. I really loved where this book went.

Overall I would recommend this mainly for the second half. I enjoyed it, it just needed a bit more of a pick me up in the beginning. It may be hard to wrap your head around a few things in the book. Like terms and such that could use an explanation or too. The book can be a little confusing at times. But the buildup is still good once you see the connection between the stories. Sam becomes quite the character in the second half and you will love where the story goes. I won't spoil you, but it is good. I love Stewart's take on Urban Fantasy. 24 Bones was pretty dark and intense. But the book takes on more than one genre and is well written overall despite some of my complaints. I say check it out ( )

An interesting story in which the battle of good and evil is fought against the backdrop of Egypt's ancient monuments.
I really enjoyed the story. Stewart makes an intricate mix of religion, myth and history with fantasy and magical elements, and I thought it worked quite well. I like the way in which he uses theory about religion and myth to complement the story.
The story is fast-paced and well written. I very much liked the characters and how they develop, choosing different sides in the course of the novel. The connections between the different characters and groups are sometimes complex, but this also means that the story stays interesting until the end, and makes it much more intriguing than a simple 'good vs. bad' type of story.
I'm looking forward to reading more of the author's work. ( )

Multicultural main characters + Egyptian mythology + strong main female character +EPIC three-sided battle + Fated DOOM + Shades of Grey?

Um, Mr. Stewart? You had me at “hello”.

Or rather, his first scene. A baptism of sorts involving the five elements. Water, Earth, Fire and Air. I was utterly captivated from them on.
 
Michael Stewart successfully combines many elements in '24 Bones'. The general plot is the on-going battle between two rival cults steeped in Egyptian mythology. Every five hundred years, the balance between the fullness (good) and the void (evil) teeters and must be restored. This particular battle plays out in modern day Cairo and is fought on either side by willing and unwilling participants.
