Bone Crier's Moon

I thoroughly enjoyed this and feel like it’s an easy story to read in one sitting. Not because it’s a simple story but because it’s addicting.
The world is unique and so is the magic system. I've never read a book like this one, where the characters use animal bones and get strength and power from them depending on what animal it is they killed. I loved every minute of it.
This story is full of star-crossed lo ...more
OMG, is this really happening? Am I actually loving this cover with cover models/character art? OMG I am!
...star-crossed lovers Ailith, a magical siren and soul-ferrier, and Bastien, her soulmate who's hell-bent on avenging his murdered father, are fated to kill one another.
Am I the only one who kind wants it to end with one or both of them dying? I don't know I just want something that is actually dark. Anime gets away with it all the time, I think books can do the same.

My reaction while reading the description:
Starcrossed lovers & Revenge
and Soulmates that are destined to kill each other
"Kathryn Purdie's new YA fantasy adventure series, Bone Grace—in which star-crossed lovers Ailith, a magical siren and soul-ferrier, and Bastien, her soulmate who's hell-bent on avenging his murdered father, are fated to kill one another. Book one is scheduled for fall 2019."
I swear I will add any book to my TBR shelf that has a cover design done by Charlie Bowater because LOOK AT HER!
I know this book doesn’t come out for quite some time (March of 2020), but I was in a bit of a rut when it came to what I wanted to read next. I knew it wanted to be some sort of fantasy but I just wasn’t sure until I came across this on Edelweiss. What definitely got me was the bit about Ailesse having to kill her soulmate in order to become a Ferrier, only to be kidnapped by him instead, and e ...more
“The Bone Crier” follows the mythology of la dame blanche , women in white whose siren song lures their soulmate to their deaths, and Aileese has been preparing her whole life to complete her rite just as Bastian has been waiting to avenge his father and on a bridge under a full moon brings them together setting off a chain of events that ...more
Certain parts were drawn out, and I always struggle to follow fight scenes (of which there were many). But I loved the friendships - especially between Sabine and Ailesse - and never quite knowing what would be revealed next!
My mind is blown. I can’t even fathom how incredible BONE CRIER’s MOON 🌓 was with its powerful, yet unique and strong characters who kept my eyes glued to the pages.
From the action-filled beginning to its twisty and mind-bending conclusion, I was left with breathless with my heart-pounding. The characters, Bastian, Sabine and Ailesse were such brilliantly contrived and fleshed out characters. The world-building was wonderfully written and based on France which made it even better!

Edit 13.08.19: breathtaking tbh. RTC.
Edit 16.08.19: I don't want to post my new review too early so have this summary I put together:
They say Bone Criers can be found - breathtaking in white - playing their bone-flute song on the night of the full moon. They are the downfall of any man who witness them for surely they will not be able to resist their siren song and will die in the arms of a Bone Crier. Bastion's own fathe ...more
