Bone Crier's Moon by Kathryn Purdie - A Review

Well, I don't know what to say about this book.

Bone Crier's Moon by Kathryn Purdie is a Young Adult Fantasy book, it's kind of a retelling of The Dames Blanches story and it's published by Katherine Tegen Books.

I really liked it in the end but I had other expectations from it. As I said it is kind of a retelling of The Dames Blanches which sounds very interesting and I really liked the world building around it. 
It's also a hate - to - love romance trope which I wanted to be more prominent in the story as it's one of my favourite tropes in books. 
I liked the writing and the pacing of the book. There were some twists that I wasn't expecting and the ending left me wanting more.

Regarding the characters, my favourite was Sabine (who is a side-character) and Bastien. I liked that every  chapter was from the POV of a different character and I think it gave more to the story.

I am eager to see what will happen in the sequel, Bone Crier's Dawn which would be published in February 2021.

Rating : 4 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
