I listened to this audiobook free on Audible as their promotion during the Corona Virus. It was on my wish list for some time, so I was more than happy to listen as I worked on the computer. It kept taking my attention away from whatever I was doing. Getting sucked into this story about Tea, this gi...

I really knew nothing about this book before getting into it. I’d only read the blurb, which although it had interested me because HELLO NECROMANCY (I hate zombies though, I know right?) and I hadn’t read any reviews, so I didn’t know: That it was framed from a bard’s point of view. That it was sol...

It is so hard to say I wasn't at least slightly disappointed in this book. And who knows, maybe that is my own fault. This premise had such sweet sweet promise. My expectations were high. And I have read previous books by Rin Chupeco before and really enjoyed them. I wouldn't go as far as to say I d...

This was excellent! A wonderful fantasy author, with the added bonus of a very fresh Asian-inspired fantasy setting. I'm not actually sure how much was fabricated and how much was inspired by various real-world cultures... I recognized elements from Japanese culture in the geisha-house-like system a...

This freaking book. Just to get this out of the way, this was not a good book. As many reviewers at Booklikes noted, this YA fantasy novel hit every trope that many of us readers are tired of reading. Main character is the best (insert name of thing) ever. There is purple prose galore. World...

The Bone Witch is a beautiful book, telling the story of Tea as she discovers that she is an asha, one with very rare abilities. The writing is lyrical and descriptive, allowing you to see the world through Tea's eyes. It is written in two alternating points of view and the voices are very differe...

The writing is beautiful. The world building is superb. And that alone is why I'm not rating this (usually a DNF gets a 1-star from me). I think I just am not in the mood for a slow-paced novel right now. I've been reading it for over a MONTH. This is unheard of. I whiz through books. I would pick i...

A fantasy book set in a fantasy land with many asha's who all have different skills. Tea is one who has VERY different and rare skills. She is able to do things that a lot of asha's are not able to do. She is taken from her homeland to learn how to use her skills when she is just 14 years old. This ...

The Bone Witch, Rin Chupeco's latest novel is striking. I haven't read anything quite like it, and found it wonderful. Tea can raise the dead. But raising her brother was an accident. Many women are asha, those who can control elemental magic, but very few can practice necromancy. Fortunately thou...

I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review. First off let me say the cover is AWESOME looking. Love the purple and it just overall stands out. So I am not too big on fantasy books just because sometimes the worlds that are created either do not appeal too me or they just seem way to...
