REVIEW: All the Murmuring Bones

“If I know anything for certain it’s that neither love nor hate is ever simple.”


All the Murmuring Bones is a haunting family story set in a world of vengeful magical creatures. Miren is born into a family steeped in history and tradition but their wealth has faded and her grandmother is ruthless in her pursuit of restoring their former glory.

I’ll admit, the first 20% was heavy and dark and had few fantasy elements – I considered DNF-info but I’m glad I stuck with it. Miren comes into her own as the story progresses and ends up on an interesting journey to discover what happened to her parents. Along the way she meets mythological creatures of all sorts, flexes her own magic and uncovers just how far some people will go for power and wealth.

There are lots of fun fairytale, mythological elements but with that you need to check some logic at the door as this one progresses. Some character interactions / reaction and plot progressions just didn’t make sense to me. But in the end it entertained me and that’s what it’s all about! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this novel. All opinions above are my own.
