ARC Review: All the Murmuring Bones by A.G Slatter

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.

ARC Review: Fireborne (Aurelian Cycle #1) by Rosaria Munda

What a tense and wild ride this was! Fireborne is an amazing fantasy debut that looks at the period just after a revolution succeeds and asks important questions about politics in general.

“And as with God’s the world quaked, to see them fireborne.”

I love the way that the story unfolds, acclimating the reader to the world and the way that the regime has improved society over the last ten years. By the time talks of war began, I was rooting for the new regime that I really connected with Lee and Annie’s actions. Is new always better?
