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.

Despite an unsettling resemblance to Japanese revenants, Rin always maintains her sense of hummus. Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, she keeps four pets: a dog, two birds, and a husband.

REVIEW:
I listened to this audiobook free on Audible as their promotion during the Corona Virus.
It was on my wish list for some time, so I was more than happy to listen as I worked on the computer.
It kept taking my attention away from whatever I was doing. Getting sucked into this story about Tea, this girl who accidentally brings her brother back from the dead.
I really love this concept of heart glass. Being able to read and interpret what anothers' heart glass is feeling, that was cool to read about. 
Almost as cool as the Asha's! These Asha's are powerful and work with dark magic. You just know there is excitement around magic, especially dark magic. This story definitely doesn't disappoint. Tea's training as an Asha is literally what enthralled me the most.
Then there is this;
Is chick pea dip the same as hummus????
I gotta know. When I heard about chick pea dip in the story, I was like.... 😶
Definitely an interesting and engrossing book. I look forward to more from this series and the author.


3.5/5

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
