{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} The Bone Witch - By Rin Chupeco


Author: Rin Chupeco
Release Date: 3/7/2017
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N

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.


Such a graceful way of spinning paranormal with a twisted version of an ancient culture. Seeing this entire book through the eyes of Tea I feel was a very smart move on the authors part. Tea is one of those main characters that took me a while to warm up to. She has the potential to blow everyone's mind, but she just hasn't come to that point yet. 

One thing that I appreciated was the amount of stunning detail that was woven into this novel. From the skies, to the description of the Bone Witch, you could tell that the author spent countless hours bringing her vision for this entire world to life through these pages. Allowing room for this world to grow, the plot really picked up about half way through the book. All the build up that happened within Tea's journey is coming to a beautiful head. Embrassing what she's meant to be is always fun to watch, so I can only imgaine what the next book in this series will bring!

Overall I enjoyed this unique tale, it was out of my normal setting & I always have a place in my heart for something a little different.

Tea sounds like a really interesting character. I like characters that aren't immediately lovable-- ones that you have to get to know to see their true motives. I'm glad you enjoyed the book-- thanks for being part of the tour!
