Bone Crier's Moon Blog Tour

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.

Bone ​Crier’s Moon (Bone Grace #1)
by Kathryn Purdie
Publisher: HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen
Release Date: March 10th 2020
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy


The Bone Crier's Moon by Kathryn Purdie is an addicting novel. It pulls you in right away and holds your attention until the very end. Bone Crier's use bones of animals to strengthen their abilities and senses. Once they collect bones of three animals, they can perform something called the rite of passage to fulfill their purpose of ferrying the dead. There is one more thing. In order to complete the rite of passage, they will have to kill their one true love. This shows the ultimate sacrifice. If one is to fail, then that means death for them as well. 

I really enjoyed the characters in this one. I thought they were very thought out and put together. I really enjoyed Ailesse and Sabine's friendship. I love that it was a big deal throughout the story. These two had a sisterly type of bond that I just couldn't get enough of.

I thought the world building was great. The magic system was very interesting and I was really glad to immerse myself into it. The culture was great. I found myself wanting to know more about this place everyone lived in. I thought the lore of the grace bones and the legends were all interesting.
