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.

Tea learns of her necromantic powers when she accidentally raises her brother. She‘s taken under the wing of another bone witch to learn how to protect the kingdom from the dark forces trying to destroy them.

The world building was truly amazing in this, lush & vast. Unfortunately, there was a lot of info dumping, this felt very slow throughout, & this really felt like a prologue expanded into a whole book. It all felt like set up. 🌕🌕🌕🌑🌑

I enjoyed this more in audiobook form than the first time that I read a physical copy. The narrator is excellent and really put a lot of genuine sounding emotions into her voice. The story is fascinating to me. Not certain when I'll get to the next book, as I now have two other audiobooks that became available. Maybe the end of the month or November.

I read this book several years ago and remember enjoying it. I read the second book, but don't remember much about it. I meant to read the third book but it's been so long now that I figured I should start again from the beginning. This time, I'm listening to it on audiobook.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks So pretty 💜 5mo
Gissy I liked that trilogy but is so sad, glooming. I enjoyed the audio and the cover are spectacular. 5mo

This book kind of dragged on in the beginning and middle but by the end I found myself needing to know more about this bone witch, the world she lives in, and what her plans are. It was basically a very long introduction to this story and how she got to where she is. I do want to read the second book to see what happens, but I‘m not racing to buy it.

I think this probably would have been better if I had read the print version as opposed to the audio. It was kind of hard to follow and one of the narrators liked to whisper a lot. Either way I'm not planning to carry on with the series.

(2017) It's a YA fantasy about a girl who accidentally raises her brother from the dead. The deed reached the ears of a bone witch -- whose magic involves raising and killing demon-monsters -- who takes the girl under her wing for training. It's very YA with its magic school and its super special heroine and its first person narration and its general angst and im not YA so probably not the best to judge it.

YA fantasy where Tea will discover that she is a Bone Witch when she raised her brother from his grave without knowing what she was doing. This first book is to describe Tea‘s training as bone witch and how she will discover her powers. I really enjoyed it. Ready for the second book. 3.5/3.8⭐️

3.9⭐️ don‘t get me wrong, the story is really good. There‘s just a lot going on as it jumps from one part of the story to another. The story starts in the present, and you‘re aware that something has taken place and through back-and-forth between the present and the past, you still don‘t find out what happened. I know, it‘s a trilogy and we‘re gonna find out in the next book, but the cliffhanger sucked. #TeamHendrix #scarathlon2021 #scarathlon

#LittensDressedInBlood Today's prompt is Black Magic Woman

I love this series (as well as her The Girl From the Well duology), and main character Tea definitely fits today's prompt. She's a bone witch, capable of raising the dead. Bone witches are not exactly popular in Tea's world, and after she's betrayed, she sets off on her own dark path.

It had me hooked from the first chapter with its hero to villain to Anti Hero arc. The MC an innocent young woman with a hated power, that uses her progression to change her world and the monsters lurking around it. Written in first person perspective to get an inside depth into the character's change to really emphasise the plot and side character arcs within the story. Greed and power, love and acceptance,magic and hate.
A 5⭐ series ❤

Tea is a Bone Witch, a witch that can resurrect the dead. Not her choice and she is ostracized by her community for it. While she is a powerful being, she wants to become an Asha, a witch that can use elemental magic. These books are amazing.

The first time I picked up this book I didn‘t get very far. At first I felt that I didn‘t have the attention span to dive into a world with lands and kingdoms that I would have to keep track of. However, I am glad I picked it up a second time. I chose not to focus on the minute details of the kingdoms because the main storyline is badass! The author sets a great foundation for the main character and writes a beautiful picture.

When Tea accidentally raises her solider brother from the dead she finds out she‘s a “bone witch” or “dark asha”. Mentored by a fellow dark asha she learns the ways of asha and magic welding. There was a lot of world building, which caused the story to drag at times. I am however, intrigued enough to continue on to the second book which I‘m hoping has a faster paced plot.

Tea dreamed of becoming an asha, a powerful elemental magic user. But when she discovers the dark runes by resurrecting her brother, the elements are blocked from ever reaching her. This is a chilling coming of age tale filled with death and magic. The Bone Witch is the perfect tale for readers who are looking for a darker young adult story. #youngadult #fantasy

This was so much better than I was expecting it to be! I‘ve seen it get mixed reviews and some criticism for being “slow” but I personally thoroughly enjoyed the detailed world building. Reminiscent of Interview With a Vampire in the way this was told, I liked the mystery of the present mixed with the first hand accounts of the past. I‘m looking forward to reading the next one!

I‘m giving up on this one - I‘m slowly realising that maybe YA fantasy just isn‘t my thing any more. The story was moving like molasses and there was so much description. Mainly of clothing. And the foretelling was a little too heavy-handed and unnecessarily cryptic. But another book off my backlist! #bookspinbingo @TheAromaofBooks

I really liked this. There's a framing narrative of the present day set against the main body of Tea's magical training. I have to say I'm more curious about the framing narrative timeline because we only get to see glimpses of what is going on there. As soon as I read the last page I wanted to immediately download the second installment.

A friend sent me this series at least a year, if not longer, ago so it was more than time to finally pick up the first book.

I'm not sure what I expected but this wasn't bad. A bit on the dark side (which I love) and it was interesting watching Tea grow into herself as the story went.

This is also a story told as a story of the past and I absolutely love that.

I'm interested enough to see what happens next!
