Welcome to my stop on the Titan Books blog tour for All the Murmuring Bones! You may or may not know this about me, dear reader, but I am addicted to mermaids and I love Gothic fiction. So naturally when Titan contacted me about this book I jumped on it so fast. (Seriously, Titan does a fantastic job curating their recommendations to my interests, thank you Polly!) This debut explores themes central to Gothic horror and ultimately exposes the home as a source of horror for women in society.
All the Murmuring Bones truly is a “spellbinding tale of dark family secrets, magic and witches, and creatures of myth and the sea; of strong women and the men who seek to control them.” I adored this intensely feminist tale and watching fairy tales come to life in a way.
