In The Bone Witch, Tea mastered resurrection―now she’s after revenge…
No one knows death like Tea. A bone witch who can resurrect the dead, she has the power to take life…and return it. And she is done with her self-imposed exile. Her heart is set on vengeance, and she now possesses all she needs to command the mighty daeva. With the help of these terrifying beasts, she can finally enact revenge against the royals who wronged her―and took the life of her one true love.But there are those who plot against her, those who would use Tea’s dark power for their own nefarious ends. Because you can’t kill someone who can never die…War is brewing among the kingdoms, and when dark magic is at play, no one is safe.

Omg where do I even start with this review?

How about the fact I’ve been up for close to 28 hours now. Not cause of the book, I’d finished that a few days prior. But because I’ve just travelled home from my vacation in Ohio.

Future me maybe dont agree to things straight after your holiday (omg i have a book event tonight too oh no).

Anyway now we are done with my excuses for this incoherent rambling of pure love for this book!

Returning to Tea’s world was no chore. I fell back in easily and was instantly whisked away on her adventures.

I still adore the dual narrative/time setting that Rin uses throughout but I must say the present day intrigues me the most.

I love reading about Tea being very powerful and doing what she has too to prove everyone wrong and help put an end to some very nasty people but at what cost?

Though now I’m typing this I also really loved reading about Tea’s past as she expands her knowledge and with the help of Fox and her friends piece together the information they have to find out the truth about the sleeping sickness.

Another element that is really important in the past is that you start to see more examples of why Tea may have a black heart in the future. Its clear she’s not as strong against the dark any more, now she has the taste for it.

The character development is just *mwah* I LOVE IT.


For those of you who have read it will understand me when I tell you I was lay on my friends bed squealing whilst reading about certain thigh scars. And on the other end of things when certain three headed good boys are good.

(Meanwhile my friend is waiting to buy her copy of the book like Lauren will you shut up!!!)

((The answer was no))

As always I loved reading about the daeva, the variety of runes, and the faceless.

I truly can not wait for book three because I can already tell its going to ruin me.

P.S. Lihk has stolen my heart.

5 stars / 5 stars
