What I'm Reading Wednesday: "The Bone Witch," by Rin Chupeco

It's a new year, so I thought I'd start a new feature here on Susan Heim on Writing: What I'm Reading Wednesday! Each week, I'll share what I'm reading with you, and I hope you'll share what you're reading, too. This will be a great way to discover new books and authors! This week, I am reading...

The Bone Witch
by Rin Chupeco

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.

Memoirs of a Geisha meets The Name of the Wind in this brilliant new fantasy series by Rin Chupeco!

So far, I am completely captivated by this book and can't wait to share my upcoming review with you. It releases on March 7, but you can pre-order your copy on Amazon.
