The beast raged; it punctured the air with its spite. But the girl was fiercer.

Tea is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy makes her a bone witch, who are feared and ostracized in the kingdom. For theirs is a powerful, elemental magic that can reach beyond the boundaries of the living—and of the human.

Great power comes at a price, forcing Tea to leave her homeland to train under the guidance of an older, wiser bone witch. There, Tea puts all of her energy into becoming an asha, learning to control her elemental magic and those beasts who will submit by no other force. And Tea must be strong—stronger than she even believes possible. Because war is brewing in the eight kingdoms, war that will threaten the sovereignty of her homeland…and threaten the very survival of those she loves.

Angie’s Thoughts:

I’m absolutely in love with this book! The intricate details the author put into The Bone Witch is flawless. She opens up a whole different world of witches, humans and the creatures that live amongst them. I have never read a book quite like this one.

The Bone Witch is about a young girl named Tea who just found out that she’s a dark asha or a Bone Witch. Lady Mykaela took her under her wings to teach her how to harness her dark power before it consumes her. Also to protect her as people look down on Bone Witches as they think they are evil.

Even though Tea is young starting out in the book I never really got the sense I was reading from a young girl’s perspective. She seemed much older and wiser beyond her years and I think that’s another reason why I enjoyed this book so much. There was some acting out like you have from any young girl but it wasn’t annoying and didn’t make you want to put the book down.

In fact, I couldn’t put it down. I read it every free chance I had and dreamt about it when I wasn’t reading it. That’s the amazing world and storyline Rin created. You could close your eyes and see the landscape, the Asha’ka, all the different hues, the oracle and her home, the Asha, and even the daeva.

The Bone Witch is an intriguing tale of beauty, love, deception and what one would do at no costs to avenge the love she lost.

The Verdict:

About Rin Chupeco

Despite an unsettling resemblance to Japanese revenants, Rin always maintains her sense of hummus. Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, she keeps four pets: a dog, two birds, and a husband. Dances like the neighbors are watching.

She is represented by Rebecca Podos of the Helen Rees Agency. She is also fond of speaking in the third person, and may as well finish this short bio in this manner. While she does not always get to check her Goodreads page, she does answer questions posed to her here as promptly as she is able to.
