In the captivating start to a new, darkly lyrical fantasy series for readers of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir, Tea can raise the dead, but resurrection comes at a price...
Let me be clear: I never intended to raise my brother from his grave, though he may claim otherwise. If there’s anything I’ve learned from him in the years since, it’s that the dead hide truths as well as the living.
When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.
In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha—one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles…and make a powerful choice.
Memoirs of a Geisha meets The Name of the Wind in this brilliant new fantasy series by Rin Chupeco!
I’ve been pretty darned excited about Rin Chupeco’s The Bone Witch, the first in an all-new YA fantasy series set in a world where magic-wielders called asha delight and defend their kingdoms. In fact, I named it as one of the books I was looking forward to the most this year, and I was ecstatic to receive an ARC prior to its release.
But alas, life got in the way (moving cities, a new business to open, a death in the family, and two family members being hospitalized in the span of three months), and I only recently got to immerse myself in the world of the asha. Keep reading to find out what I thought. Read More »
