The Bone Witch

The Bone Witch
by Rin Chupeco
Sourcebooks Fire, 2017, 411 pages Young Adult Fiction

Tea has a very strong gift for death magic which causes most of the people in her land to fear, avoid, and respect her. After raising her brother from the dead, Tea undergoes the training to become an Asha, someone who can wield elemental magic. She will have to face many obstacles and make choices that will impact the world.

This was a book with beautiful world building. Think Geishas with magic powers; it was absolutely fascinating exploring this world where magic and tradition are so saturated in the culture. This is not a standalone book, and because of this I am very excited for book two Rin has set up a fantastic story and I am excited to read the follow through.

I LOVE this book! I'm a big fan of world-building and the world of THE BONE WITCH is fascinating. There's so much going on between the "present" and flashbacks, it's going to be so interesting to see how Tea changes. I'm so excited to see where the next book takes us; the end of this one is a mic drop!
