#BookReview: The Bone Witch (The Bone Witch #1) by @rinchupeco

Genre: Fantasy 
About the Book:

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.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I tried this book a little while ago and ended up DNFing. Well, I have to say that I am glad I gave it another go because this book was so good.
Do I Recommend this book?  Yes

Notes and Opinions: This book is written as an interview. You have the one character who is learning the story of the Bone Witch Tea. I do not think I understood that the first time I tried to read this one.  But this time around I made it all the way through and I couldn't put it down. This is a beautifully written story about a girl who ended up being something that she didn't ask for.  I loved all the descriptions and way the story was told. It was different than any other fantasy that I have read. I have to say that if you love fantasy and amazing stories then you should check this one out.
