  • Cassie
    Thank-you, Edelweiss, for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review! 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 e...

    Real Rating: 3,5 starsBone Crier's Moon tell us the story of three main characters: Sabine, Ailesse and Bastien. Sabine and Ailesse are best friends and part of a clan of Leuress, women who ferry the dead into the underworld or paradise. They must do it with the help of bones from animals and a sacred bone flute. If the dead are not ferried they become something like invisible danger. Bastien is a boy driven by revenge because his father was kill...

    I really enjoyed this! A coven of women who ferry the dead to the afterlife, forbidden romance, supportive friendships and a fantastic ending all make this book. Bone Crier’s Moon and it’s stunning cover by Charlie Bowater is about Bone Criers (or Leuress) who use the bones of animals to strengthen their own abilities and senses. After they have collected the bones of three animals, they can perform their rite of passage and fulfill their pur...

    WOW! Okay, wow. Where to start.This book completely won me over. I had some trouble in the beginning because some of the descriptions and explanations were a bit wordy, BUT the world is just so cool that it doesn't matter! This book is about a group of Leurress who are charged with ferrying the dead into Tyrus' underworld or Elara's eternal paradise. The Leurress ferry the dead once a month and they used a sacred bone flute to call them. If the d...

    Well, this is a first. Two stars always felt too harsh to me, but I just couldn’t with this book. It all stems from one very OBVIOUS thing that is lacking; character depth. Who was Aileese—besides a Bone Crier/Siren—you ask? I HAVE NO IDEA. She was literally just some girl had to kill some guy to secure her role in her society of Bone Criers. No depth to her character at all. We got no backstory, no unique traits, no development, no nothing...

    **I received this as an egalley from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.**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...

    This had a strong start but then slowly turned into your run of the mill fantasy that had me go from singing it’s praises to struggling to make it to the end. “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 ...

    Absolutely beautiful! The world building, the system of magic and collecting of bones, everything was very well thought out. I was in this book’s grip after the first page. The descriptions of these characters were so brilliant and vibrant. I even loved our villains because of their complexities! Love love LOVE.

    A whirlwind chase involving fated loves, bone magic and twisted secrets! 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!

    Jul 28, 2019My 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 wri...

    ARC provided by the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.2.5I have to start this review out by saying that there’s a love triangle in this, and it’s definitely the icky sort... I feel like when it comes to love triangles, the only chance I might like it is if our main protagonist has to choose between two equally great people. In this one, like so many others, it’s a choice for the love interest of the main protagoni...
