From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kathryn Purdie comes a high-stakes fantasy duology flush with doomed romance and macabre magic, perfect for fans of Stephanie Garber and Roshani Chokshi. Bone Criers are the last descendants of an ancient famille charged with using the magic they draw from animal bones to shepherd the dead into the afterlifelest they drain the light from the living. Ailesse has been prepared since birth to become their matriarch, but first she must complete her rite of passage: to kill the boy shes destined to love. Bastiens father was slain by a Bone Crier and hes been seeking revenge ever since. Now his vengeance must wait, as Ailesses ritual has begun and their fates are entwinedin life and in death.

I enjoyed this read and am looking forward to the next book. I liked the plot twist (which I didn‘t pick!) and the supporting characters a lot.

Sorry the picture isn't super nice. My Island is so so messy and I couldn't get a good picture of everything!

Avanders Yay I‘m glad you like everything!! I‘m especially glad I guessed right that you‘d like that moon calendar! 🥰😘♥️ 2y

Another middle of the road YA fantasy novel. Interesting concept but wasn‘t executed well enough for me. There‘s another coming soon but I probably won‘t pick it up. At least it‘s off the TBR pile! #bookspinbingo

Bone Crier‘s Moon is a retelling of a French folklore called Les Dames Blanches. I thought overall it was unique in its mythology and magic system. And I was leaning more toward 4 stars until the last 75 pages or so. Then it took a bit of a haphazard crash when it tried to inject too many YA tropes to set up even more melodrama and a quasi-cliffhanger. 3.5 🌟 I‘ll likely read the next one.

And this is my #doublespin for September! #huzzah 🎉

TheAromaofBooks Great progress! And boo for books that go randomly off the rails at the very end! 😂 2y

#87 of my year and this one I received from my Owlcrate subscription and put it on my bookshelf and forgot about it till now. I always feel like you read the books you‘re meant to, when you‘re meant to read them. Let‘s see if this resonates with me in the way I need atm. Listening to Wishing Well by Juice WRLD🌻

Caffeinated_Reader Such an awesome and heartbreaking tale. I love the story of the ferriers, so cool to think about. Not so much what they have to do on their right of passage night lol but everything else is very cool. I definitely look forward to the next book. 2y

Bk4 of my #JuneBookHaul is (finally) the March FairyLoot book. Only took 3 months to arrive🕜 It‘s a beautiful edition at least with glittery sage green edges, a poster under the dust jacket & signed. It was a tossup to keep this one or the Owlcrate version with gold edges & a slightly different cover but I ended up giving that to my daughter instead. Bone Criers are women that ferry the dead to either Heaven or the Underworld but at a cost.

marleed Very pretty! 2y

I am not a young adult anymore. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this audiobook a great deal. It was action-packed, easy to follow and had relatable characters.

Just finished. It was ok but a little long, the romance felt too rushed. Plot twists were interesting but I don‘t think I‘m gonna continue on to the next book personally.

🎧 I did indeed enjoy it! I recommend this audiobook if you like YA romance with a twist. Well ... not a lot of romance. I‘d listen to book two. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/3

🎧 OMG I hate myself for enjoying this teen/ya romance 😆 the first hour I was thinking WTF is going on, this is stupid ... this would qualify as my anti-genre before today. Then it grabbed me. Maybe it‘s the fact that so far the star-crossed couple wants to kill each other. It could be more clear at times but I assume that if history is any indication then it‘ll make sense soon enough. Great narration, fun action & good story SO FAR (@ 60%)! 😁

Centique I have this reaction to YA quite often - I start off not liking the writing or something but then the story has such heart and great characters and I get totally hooked. Makes me prepared to always give these books a few chapters to grow on me 😍 3y
Twainy @Centique I agree! I‘m not fond of the whiny insecure girl filled with angst trope ... but I‘ve been really lucky with strong female characters and the level of teen romance in the stories I‘ve read has been tolerable 😆 I liked this one as it was weird? Unique? Different? 3y
Centique @Twainy I‘ll have to try it! 3y

How can so much thought be put into the cover but not the actual book itself? It was boring. All you got straight from the start was action. Action, drama, fight scenes, over and over and over again. Everything is surface level with absolutely no depth. Character development was poorly attempted or not done at all and world building was non existent. The story itself has promise but was not executed well at all which is so sad.

This was a great read! It‘s the first book though where I loved the sidekicks more than the main characters. Marcel and Sabine were so well rounded and interesting! That said, I did like Bastien and Ailesse, too. I‘m really looking forward to the sequel. 🦉 🌙 And, how beautiful is this OwlCrate edition? The edges are gold, too. I only wish mine did not have a flaw in the book jacket (bottom right corner).

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This story is about doomed love and trying to save it. It was bittersweet and well done. There were a few times I was bored and guessed one thing. The cover is beyond gorgeous. The world building and character development was great. Recommend.

I really didn‘t expect to like it. And then it sucked me in. I can‘t wait for the second book... audiobook wasn‘t as good as the print edition. The Cover art isn‘t my fav either.

I love !ndigo! I can‘t believe how many great books I found. Books that won‘t be released until next month, paperback copies of books that are new releases in the US and therefore are only in hardback, and great bargain books!

Found this book today and I couldn't help starting it. It's pretty good so far.

Didn't get a great amount of time in yesterday so going to try to get that number up way more today since I'm feeling a little better, at the moment anyways.
