"a rich and satisfying novel"

All the Murmuring Bones by AG Slatter (Titan, £8.99) returns to the gothic fairytale settings of her short stories (her 2014 collection The Bitterwood Bible and other Recountings won the World Fantasy award). It is a rich and satisfying novel about a young woman, born to be the last hope of a once powerful family, who resists an arranged marriage and won’t stop at murder or magic to survive in a world of abusive men and dangerous, supernatural creatures. Shifting between scenes of wonder and horror, a complex plot is gradually revealed, as well paced and gripping as a thriller.
