The Bone Witch
The Bone Witch | Rin Chupeco
In the captivating start to a new, darkly lyrical fantasy series, Tea can raise the dead, but resurrection comes at a price... 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.

The chapters consist of the story of Tea, a bone witch. At the end of each chapter it flashes forward to the present setting, with a bard (singer/storyteller) listening to the exiled Tea tell her story. You wonder why is she exiled? What led her here? And so you keep reading to find out. A story filled with heartache and magic.

Engaging story. Good writing. Narration was give or take. The characters are developed and mostly interesting.
The first in a trilogy about a powerful young witch who can raise the dead and among other things. Mystical and magical, love and loss, loyalty and betrayal ... this book has it all. I really need the next one cause I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

Added a little more to my walk this morning because I‘m enjoying this book and I felt pretty good. I went 55 mins, almost 3 miles. I know it‘s not much but I‘m damn proud of myself. When the #BFC started I wasn‘t sure I would last 30 minutes now I‘m going almost an hour, and wondering where I can add more.
I really am enjoying this book. The writing is good and the story is interesting. I‘m fully engaged while listening.
Thank you @wanderinglynn

Loving this book so far. The writing is wonderful, the narrators I could give or take but they aren‘t bad. My walk this morning was a little muggy (62* and it rained last night and will probably today) so extra sweaty, but oh my did it feel good! I didn‘t get a walk in yesterday, barely any steps. Man Cub has a dr appt in the city and then errand there and then met my parents to hand over Man Cub for the weekend. Today: 6000+ by 9am 👍🏼 #bfc

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, since I don‘t usually go in for YA. It had some of the problems and annoyances I usually find in YA books, but I will most likely continue with the series and see how things go.

It‘s been a banner year for DNFs, but so far this is better than I had anticipated. YA fiction isn‘t something I usually care for, but the premise of this was interesting and the cover is beautiful so I figured I‘d give it a try.

Did you make a target goal (number) of books to read in 2019? I didn't but maybe I should! Im up to 26 right now! 🧐 My TBR list is huge! Pictured is only a small sampling and I keep adding more. I'm not sure if it's better or worse that I can't see the physical counterparts of all the ebooks I'm buying 😮 I love books! ❤️ I might have a problem. 😂

Q - What's your 2019 number? 🤓

heikemarie Mine was a 75 book goal but I think I‘ll need to up it since I‘m at 36 now. According to GR I own 248 books I haven‘t read yet. I definitely add more on a regular basis 😂 3mo
RiverKScottWrites @heikemarie Wow that‘s a lot! 😮 Yes it‘s an ever growing pile, isn‘t it? Good thing having unfinished reads doesn‘t give me anxiety the way having unfinished work projects does 😂 3mo

I really liked the premise of this book. It‘s a little dark and fantastical. There‘s some rich world building, and enough unanswered questions that I want to read more. My main complaint is that the character development is lacking and the dialogue doesn‘t flow well. I‘ll have to see if the second book remedies some of these faults. Intrigued enough to continue.

jackilynn I was not the biggest fan of the Bone Witch but I figured I would attempt book 2 before I completely gave up on the series. I enjoyed book 2 way more than book 2. 3mo

I very much enjoyed the gesisha-esque women who wield ancient runes and dark magic.

Tea is a dark asha who can control the dead- making her a feared bone witch. However, her mentor Makayla opens the girl's eyes to a new world and begins training her to search and hunt for Daeva- deadly creatures only dark asha can control. Told from both the past and present, one tries to figure out Tea's story and why she turns out the way she does.

My January reads. January started off strong for me. I was hoping to finish 2 of the 3 books I started this week but I've had a head cold that's put me to bed earlier than usual almost every night this week.

EBooks - 3 read/ 2 started
Books - 3 read/ 1 started
Audio - 2 not finished

Total pages read - ~2308 (including books not finished)
Total listening hours - 8(!! About double what is has been the last few months)

Tagged book is the fave.

I loved this book. Reading through some other reviews I see some felt that it wasn't fast paced enough. I'm ok with that. The book starts off in present day with Tea telling her story for a Bard. The longer chapters are for the retelling of her story and then smaller chapters in between for present day. She gives us just enough during present day to keep you hooked without giving spoilers.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ From me.

WhatThePuck @taraWritesSci I feel like the little small chapters in between were like a palate cleanser. 🤣 Breaks it up enough to keep the story from becoming tedious. Not that I felt that any of the longer chapters were tedious, but I could see where it could happen. 6mo

There's nothing special about Tea until the day she accidentally raises her brother from the dead. She's a Dark Asha- both needed and feared by her country.

If you want a fast paced thrill of a book- this isn't for you.

But if you want the sort of slow build story that creeps up on you and oozes into your very marrow with a mix of subtle world building and morally grey characters... wow. Just wow. One of the best fantasy books I've read. Ever.

I have a ritual for the end of Summer. I pick out a book for Halloween, to get me in the mood of Fall. I walked past the window of Griffin Bay Bookstore and immediately chose The Bone Witch.

From the very beginning, I was enchanted. The words stole my attention from everything. Immediately addicted, I devoured each page. Hungrily, absorbing each chapter. I loved Tea! Her spunk and refusal to fall in line make her relatable and exciting.

Despite a bit of a slow start, I really came to enjoy this book! In this case, the slow start can be forgiven because it helps to build the astoundingly detailed & creative world the novel is set in. Some of the best world building I‘ve read in a while, tbh. I loved the rich culture of the Asha, the symbolism of the Heartglass, & the themes of good vs. evil, as well as a bit on gender roles. Can‘t wait to read the next book of the series!

So, I‘m doing a 12-hour marathon starting now & ending at 11:59 pm tomorrow. Anyone want to join?

Solid fantasy novel. This first book of the series contained tons of foreshadowing, definately setting up for the sequels. Tea made for an interesting main character. Is she going to be good or bad? I am hoping the second book answers some questions and has more action.
