Book Review: The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

I got an eARC of this book from NetGalley so first off, Thank You NetGalley for this early copy.  And now let's get to this review, because this book was so freaking good, it's not out until March 7, and it's nothing like I have read before in the Witchy world and this makes this book unique.

And I'm going to stop babbling because once I start I never finish, right?  Okay, let's do this:

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco


When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns that she is a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and not wanted by her community.  But Tea finds solace and guidance from a wiser bone with, who takes her and her brother to another land for training.

In her new home, Tea pulls all her energy into becoming an asha-one who can wield elemental magic.  But dark forces are approaching fast and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome obstacles, and make a powerful choice.

This book was written so differently from what you are used to, Tea tells her story to a bard, while she is already an exhiled asha and she is living on a beach full of skulls during present time.  And then we see the past time, when Tea was getting trained to become an asha, when her powers weren't fully yet, when she lived in a community full of ashas and spellbinders.  When in this community she met the people that trained her, the guys that loved and her brother.  But, even when we go back and forth you never really know what caused Tea to be exhiled and you just keep on reading because the past?  It's so freaking interesting, because there are things happening there that keeps you on wanting to know more about it.  And the present time?  Tea, appears crazy at times, doing crazy, dark magic and you wonder what the heck happened and what the heck is she planning.

The end left you speechless and wanting more, I definitely want to read the next book for sure.

4 out of 5 stars and how gorgeous is this cover?
