Rin Chupeco became an instant favorite of mine with her 2014 debut book Girl in the Well. I could write paragraphs about how much I love her but for now I will just say this; she only has a few books out but her distinct writing style and storytelling abilities put her among the best in her field and make her an author to watch. With her newest title, Bone Witch, she has once again proven this. It is a beautifully written dark fantasy that will take your breath away and leave you wanting.— From Faith's Picks (page 1)
A Publishers Weekly Most Anticipated Young Adult Book of Spring 2017
In the captivating start to a new, darkly lyrical fantasy series for readers of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir, Tea can raise the dead, but resurrection comes at a price...
Let me be clear: I never intended to raise my brother from his grave, though he may claim otherwise. If there's anything I've learned from him in the years since, it's that the dead hide truths as well as the living.
When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she's a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.
In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha--one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles...and make a powerful choice.
