“Believe every story you hear.”
I have so many mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, Bone Crier’s Moon was SO GOOD. I loved the characters. The descriptions were incredible. The story idea was super unique and interesting. It was easy to lose myself in the story and the awesome action scenes.
On the other hand, it was SO repetitive. The book could have been cut in half and still come out the same by the end. The book not only ended on a cliffhanger, but it was a frustrating cliffhanger. It would have been nice to have at least some sort of resolution by the end of the story.
The themes of love and friendship were present throughout the entire book. What does love really mean? What does it look like? Is love really predicted by the gods? Or is it only just a game? This book is great for those looking for a unique fantasy romance with a darker edge.
My rating: 4 stars
I lunge for him, and we begin a new dance, this one more deadly, more passionate, more inflamed.
Bone Criers have a sacred duty. They alone can keep the dead from preying on the living. But their power to ferry the spirits of the dead into goddess Elara’s Night Heavens or Tyrus’s Underworld comes from sacrifice. The gods demand a promise of dedication. And that promise comes at the cost of the Bone Criers’ one true love.
Ailesse has been prepared since birth to become the matriarch of the Bone Criers, a mysterious famille of women who use strengths drawn from animal bones to ferry dead souls. But first she must complete her rite of passage and kill the boy she’s also destined to love.
Bastien’s father was slain by a Bone Crier and he’s been seeking revenge ever since. Yet when he finally captures one, his vengeance will have to wait. Ailesse’s ritual has begun and now their fates are entwined—in life and in death.
Sabine has never had the stomach for the Bone Criers’ work. But when her best friend Ailesse is taken captive, Sabine will do whatever it takes to save her, even if it means defying their traditions—and their matriarch—to break the bond between Ailesse and Bastien. Before they all die.
