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.

A lot of times my own hype gets in the way, but my expectations were exceeded – I read this book twice in as many weeks, and if that isn’t an indication of the magic within these pages… I don’t know what will convince you.
