Kreya always wore her coat with many pockets when she went out to steal bones.
Friday 56: 
Kreya felt as if she were screaming from within her skin -- her mind, her soul, her very blood felt as if it were screaming. She couldn't make sense of this.
This week I am spotlighting The Bone Maker by Sarah Beth Durst. She emailed and asked if I was interested in reading her latest fantasy. Here is the description from Amazon:
From award-winning author Sarah Beth Durst, a standalone epic fantasy set in a brand-new world of towering mountains and sparkling cities, in which a band of aging warriors have a second chance to defeat dark magic and avenge a haunting loss.

Twenty-five years ago, five heroes risked their lives to defeat the bone maker Eklor—a corrupt magician who created an inhuman army using animal bones. But victory came at a tragic price. Only four of the heroes survived.

Since then, Kreya, the group’s leader, has exiled herself to a remote tower and devoted herself to one purpose: resurrecting her dead husband. But such a task requires both a cache of human bones and a sacrifice—for each day he lives, she will live one less.

She’d rather live one year with her husband than a hundred without him, but using human bones for magic is illegal in Vos. The dead are burned—as are any bone workers who violate the law. Yet Kreya knows where she can find the bones she needs: the battlefield where her husband and countless others lost their lives.

But defying the laws of the land exposes a terrible possibility. Maybe the dead don’t rest in peace after all.

Five warriors—one broken, one gone soft, one pursuing a simple life, one stuck in the past, and one who should dead. Their story should have been finished. But evil doesn’t stop just because someone once said, “the end.”


  1. I love that opening line. I immediately have to wonder why she is stealing bones, of all things. Reading the synopsis, this sounds like a book I would really enjoy. I hope you enjoy it when you read it! Have a great weekend, Kathy!

  2. I'm intrigued and I love her name! Happy weekend!

  3. I'm really looking forward to this one. Thanks for sharing!
