Summary

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.

Spellbinding Sequal

As this beautiful yet dark tale continues, I find that I have become even more enchanted with these books. With what feels like a nod to Japanese or Eastern culture giving it a particularly special originality, I feel like The Bone Witch and now this sequel have a wonderful spellbinding quality that leaves me hoping that this world continues to grow even after we find out what happens to Tea and company. Excellent narrative, very well narrated by the Will Damron (the present) and Emily Woo Zeller (the past) and a fantastic journey that I look forward to continuing.

Complex world building

If “Memoirs of a Geisha” by Arthur Golden, the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo, and the “Song of the Shattered Sands” series by Bradley Beaulieu got together and had a baby - I think this is the book they would birth. Rin Chupeco has mastered the art of complex world building, as well as weaving together split chronological narratives in a delightful teasing play, drawing the reader inexorably onwards into the drama. Well narrated, this audio book is definitely worth a listen!

Great story!

Loved the story, but sometimes the females voices for the male characters was confusing as to who was speaking. Can't wait to download the third book though!

The first book was amazing! This one was a slog

I love the world building in the first book and was very excited to read the latest volume. Unfortunately, the back-and-forthing between two narrators to bring two sides of the story together was sort of neat but ultimately distracting. I think this was partly the case because I wasn't crazy about the male narrator's voice and the fact that he pronounced some names and places differently than the female narrator. She did a great job with her side of narration but this book just didn't pull me in the way the first one did. I'm not sure if I would read a third installment if one comes out.

An Excellent Follow-up to The Bone Witch

Although it took me quite some time to finish this audiobook, it was not because it was difficult or unengaging. To the contrary, it was an excellent book that had I been just reading, would have been finished with months ago. This was simply a matter of not making enough time to listen often enough.

Also, I will repeat a sentiment that I hope I remembered to offer when I reviewed The Bone Witch...these narrators, Emily Woo Zeller in particular, are just phenomenal and totally MAKE these books. I look forward to other books narrated by her in the future.

Regarding the story itself, Chupeco writes exceptionally well also. The story is engaging even when there isn't a ton of action going on, though there IS plenty in this novel. He also made this into a very BALANCED read. No crazy twists or an outrageous number of sad events that weren't bouyed by some other activity or action. This was no disappointment by any means!

This series is the best I've read in awhile.

It keeps you on your toes and keeps you guessing. It has drama, romance, and so much more. I can't wait for the next book to come out.
