THE BONELESS MERCIES shows off its killer edge in new book trailer!
April Genevieve Tucholke is back with a standalone tale of sisterhood, strength, and epic battles in The Boneless Mercies!
Inspired by Beowulf, the novel follows a band of female assassins– Frey, Ovie, Juniper, and Runa– known for their quick and efficient killing. Still, Frey dreams of a different life. When she hears word of a mythical beast that must be slain, she knows that bringing down the monster is their one shot at a new path, even if it means risking their lives in the process.
Tucholke just shared the foreboding book trailer for The Boneless Mercies, which features a fearsome quote about these badass ladies:
