Title: The Bone Witch
Author: Rin Chupeco
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Pub. Date: 7 March 2017
Genre: Fantasy, Magic, Necromancy, YA
This book is really two story-lines converging. In one, young Tea is learning to control her new magic without letting the darkness in. In the other, the Bard is recounting his meeting with the infamous and very powerful outcast witch (a mature Tea) and what he has learned about her life, So, did the darkness win after all?
The world, the magic, the beasts…all captivating. There are parts where this story moves very slow. Chupeco’s prose is resonant, replete with such detailed description that readers finds themselves meandering along for some time before being reminded that there is also a plot.
Sometimes it is amazing, and sometimes it is just boring.
