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

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 be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
