THE BONE MAKER is an Apple Best Book of the Month!

Got some lovely news today! Apple Books chose my new epic fantasy, THE BONE MAKER, as one of the #BestBooksOfMarch! So absolutely thrilled! Check it out here:

Apple Books Review: "In this captivating stand-alone fantasy adventure from celebrated author Sarah Beth Durst, a magical warrior takes risks in battle -- and in love. It's been years since Kreya and her small band of fighters defeated an army of skeletons led by the evil sorcerer Eklor. Kreya lost her husband, Jentt, in the conflict; now she's tired and lonely. With her mystical powers fading, Durst's heroine decides to use Eklor's forbidden magic to resurrect Jentt -- sending her on a perilous journey to fix the cosmic imbalance that her wartime actions created. We were amazed by the rich detail and fascinating history of Durst's fantastical world, where the power of magic is matched by the sheer force of the characters' emotions. Awesomely epic and deeply moving, The Bone Maker put us under a deep spell."

First Sentence of THE BONE MAKER

 My favorite sentence to write is the first one. It invites the reader into your world. Here's my first sentence from THE BONE MAKER (coming 3/9/21 from Harper Voyager):

"Kreya always wore her coat with many pockets when she went out to steal bones."

THE BONE MAKER, coming in March!

 Just switched to my 2021 calendar and it's starting to sink in...  It's a new year, which means new books! In March, my next book for adults, THE BONE MAKER, comes out from Harper Voyager! It's a standalone epic fantasy about bone magic, second chances, and five former heroes -- one broken, one gone soft, one pursuing a simple life, one unable to let go of the past, and one dead. I loved every second of writing it, and I can't wait to share it with you!
