Follow-up to The Bone Witch. If you love a compelling anti-hero, this is a must read. Fascinating plot and characters and gorgeous writing.

The second book in the trilogy, we continue with Tea's story... now wondering what caused her to be so feared and hated by those who loved her. It seems like she's the villain in the present setting, and yet I rooted for her every step of the way.

After reading "The Bone Witch", I was glad to see that "The Heart Forger" was immediately avilable for me to read. Following these geshia-like warriors, I was once again enthralled by the storyline and cannot wait to hear the third book... once the library adds it that is.

I really wanted to love this book as much as the first. The plot is still there, but the execution is getting sloppy. More than once she used the wrong character's name, her grammar was horrible, and the romance she threw in - 🙄 It was you quintessential YA romance. Boy despises girl, girl despises boy until they both suddenly realize they've been in love this whole time. I'm sticking out for book 3 bc the plot still has me. 3/5 ⭐

Laughterhp She used the wrong characters name? 😬😬 I read the first one and loved it, but totally forgot what happened so haven‘t read the second one yet. 10mo
WhatThePuck @Laughterhp more than once. I'm wondering how much editing and proofreading happened with the 2nd book. Lol. 10mo

Jess_Franzino While I loved the book, I noticed the typos as well. 10mo
WhatThePuck @Jess_Franzino I could've forgiven the typos. The romance really set me off and the typos were added annoyance. 10mo
Jess_Franzino @WhatThePuck I actually like Kalen/Tea, though mostly because of the mislead about Kance, as well as the irony about the prophecy regarding Tea‘s love, which had originally led Kalen to believe that Tea was a threat to Kance. But, I get how the hate-to-love thing can be cringe-worthy, especially in YA. 10mo

My reading has been very unfocused the past couple of months, so it's taken me a while to finish this book. That has nothing to do with this wonderfully written story at all, though. This book was even more beautiful than the first in this series, the relationships between characters more detailed and intimate. I look forward to reading the next book.

I flippin‘ LOVE Rin Chupeco! This book was even better than “The Bone Witch”. Such beautiful emotion, political intrigue, & astounding characters. The relationships between the characters are just so well developed & the dialogue is snappy and realistic, yet poignant all the same. Tea‘s relationship with both Kalen & her brother have stolen my heart. Also, SUCH AN ENDING. Don‘t think I can survive the wait til March 1st for the final book.

There is not a character named “Vador”. His name is “Vanor”. WTF, editor? 😂

Ye_Mighty_Andy_Spare I always think of editors like goalkeepers - they try to catch everything, but some mistakes slip through. They might have been super-busy the day they read that section and were rushing through it because their boss had dumped a load more work on them. Or they might have had a big personal issue distracting them at the time - close family member being in hospital or something 12mo
Jess_Franzino @Ye_Mighty_Andy_Spare I was just surprised, especially since this particular book is the kind that would have been combed through many, many times prior to publication. Wasn‘t complaining, just mildly amused that I spent a solid five minutes trying to figure out who “Vador” was 😂 (to be fair, this particular series has A LOT of characters). 12mo
Ye_Mighty_Andy_Spare Vader would have been more fun :-D I'd drop the publishers a line - they'd prob appreciate the chance to correct the mistake in future editions 12mo
Jess_Franzino @Ye_Mighty_Andy_Spare That‘s a good idea, especially since I do adore Rin Chupeco‘s books! Of course, I must triple check and make sure that “Vador” isn‘t Vanor‘s long dead brother, or something similar, as that wouldn‘t be surprising given all the different families 🤣 However, given the context, it seems “Vador” meant “Vanor”. 12mo

I really wanted to like this book. I loved The Bone Witch and the world created by Chupeco. The writing in The Heart Forger was weak and a bit dull. There was too much jumping around and I ended up confused. This was a let down after enjoying The Bone Witch so much.

Not as good as the first book, but I still enjoyed most of the world building. I think this book suffered from weak villians and overly complicated politics of its world, the former being dull and the latter feeling like it was made up as it went for plot reasons. Also the framing device with the Bard should not have involved so much action since it really didn't have the kind of weight the main story did. Still curious to see what happens next.

The Bone Witch, the first book in this series, was one of the best books I read in 2017. And this book was just as good and had more action. But it took me FOREVER to get through it. This book was longer and I have had a busy couple of months. But still! I am still excited for the 3rd book though. Im just in love with the mashup of geisha culture and magic that Rin Chupco has created for this world.

Some parts read weird, tenses got all wonky or I couldn't tell who was saying what, but overall intriguing and very cool. Tea is a complete badass and going back and forth from her in prime and her journey into that badass is a format I'm not usually a fan, but it works very well here! I have no idea when the next one comes out, but anticipating!

I liked book 1 (Bone Witch) but LOVE book 2! The present vs past narration pulled me right back into the story—plus gives tantalizing hints about where key players end up. It is nonstop action, twists, & plot movement—and the love story is super satisfying. Tea has grown into a full-blown, balls-to-the-wall hardcore magnificent woman equipped to save kingdoms from bad guys & challenge questionable authority by pushing the limits of her magic. 5⭐️

“The Deathseeker kissed her cheek, her nose, her lips. “I promise. And whatever happens, know I will be with you. Until the very end.” 😭and I did tear up.

5⭐️ AMAZING. Completely action packed for the entire book. The dual storytelling is a tale rife with action, magic, daeva, runes, political intrigue and murder, betrayal, forgiveness, friendship, and love. I loved the sequel more than the first. Just an amazing tale that took my breathe away.

Jess_Read_This I just can‘t reiterate enough how action packed this story is. I had to put it down for a bit to take a break and just ruminate on what was going on. I love Chupeco‘s storytelling in this as she weaves past and present together. I can rave on and on about this one. 2y
