Summary (from Goodreads): The beast raged; it punctured the air with its spite. But the girl was fiercer.
Tea is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy makes her a bone witch, who are feared and ostracized in the kingdom. For theirs is a powerful, elemental magic that can reach beyond the boundaries of the living—and of the human.
Great power comes at a price, forcing Tea to leave her homeland to train under the guidance of an older, wiser bone witch. There, Tea puts all of her energy into becoming an asha, learning to control her elemental magic and those beasts who will submit by no other force. And Tea must be strong—stronger than she even believes possible. Because war is brewing in the eight kingdoms, war that will threaten the sovereignty of her homeland…and threaten the very survival of those she loves.
Review: DNF @ 40%
What drew me to this book was the cover and the description of the book. Sadly, this did not give me any pleasure to read. It felt like a chore to read. Nothing happened. I did not feel anything for the characters at all who were very flat. I have no recollection of what this “world” was like. There wasn’t that much necromancy involved.
The only portion of the book I liked was when she was on the beach talking to that guy about her past. But those parts were very small and took forever to get to.
Judging by other reviews. I am not the only one who shares this opinion of the book.
If you choose to read it, I hope you enjoy it more than I did!

Oh, I am sorry you had a rough time with this one. I haven’t gotten a copy of it, because of all the negative reviews. Hope the next book you pick up is better!
It had so much potential. But sadly I couldn’t push through. I am reading A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray and I am flying through it. You should pick it up after Truthwitch! 🙂
I did finish, but I understand the need to DNF. The first half was the better part, so I think you made the right choice for you ❤️
