If you’ve been keeping up with all my screaming lately, you’ll be aware that I have completely fallen in love with Rin Chupeco’s The Bone Witch series. Thank you so much to Rin Chupeco, Sourcebooks Fire and Myrth for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this blog tour. Without this, I wouldn’t have discovered another epic series to cry and flail about.
I’ll be posting the blog tour schedule below so you can check out other bloggers’ posts too! Let’s support this book and send all our praises to my favorite three-headed dragon who can turn you into ashes in a blink but is still adorable all the same.
(I will also be posting my first attempt at an aesthetic mood board below so just pretend you like it and we can call this a day thank you very much)

In the highly anticipated finale to the Bone Witch trilogy, Tea’s life—and the fate of the kingdoms—hangs in the balance
Tea is a bone witch with the dark magic needed to raise the dead. She has used this magic to breathe life into those she has loved and lost…and those who would join her army against the deceitful royals. But Tea’s quest to conjure a shadowglass—to achieve immortality for the one person she loves most in the world—threatens to consume her heart.
Tea’s black heartsglass only grows darker with each new betrayal. And when she is left with new blood on her hands, Tea must answer to a power greater than the elder asha or even her conscience…
Thank you to the publisher for giving me a copy in exchange for an honest review.
It has been a while since I binge read a series and said, “I’M IN SO MUCH PAIN GIVE THESE BOOKS MORE LOVE AND ATTENTION YOU COWARDS!!!”
I only started reading The Bone Witch series a month ago but I find myself so attached to this trilogy now that I consider it to be one of the best YA Fantasy series out there.
MORE THOUGHTS ON THE SHADOW GLASS:
• The Shadow Glass tied up the missing links to Tea’s tale seamlessly all the while making me feel as if I’ve run 10 miles with all the heavy breathing my lungs made while reading. It was THAT thrilling and breathtaking. I still loved the storytelling till the very end, with the flashbacks narrated by Tea and the present narrated by the Bard fitting perfectly.
• It also showed more of the Seven Kingdoms that Rin Chupeco created vividly and I loved that very much. I’m still reeling from the complex world-building of this series rivaling even George R. R. Martin’s and Brandon Sanderson’s with its meticulous details. Each kingdom has its own mythology, political history and architecture. I am the kind of bookdragon who’s always thirsty for excellent worlds to get lost in and… THIS SERIES DEFINITELY KEPT ME HYDRATED, ADAM. No doubt about it.
• I also can’t deny that I loved all the character developments in this book. I understood Tea better here and it was only in this book that I grasped the scope of her connection with and love for Kalen.
Have you ever loved anyone so fiercely you were afraid it might shatter you? It was a blessing and a burden I carried.
• Tea and Fox’s sibling relationship is also realistic in its ups and downs. I admire how Chupeco wrote Fox to be such a three-dimensional character with his misgivings and imperfections.
• How can I also forget my love for the queer couples in this series? Shadi and Zoya make one of the best f/f pairs for they complement each other beautifully. HELLO TO LIKH AND KHALAD TOO. I was one step away from screaming at them to just admit they have feelings for each other. The both of them are just too pure okay?? I will take a bullet for them. Or, you know, shield them with runes because there are no guns in this world.
• There’s also a whole scene here where Tea was just full-on bookdragon mode and IT WAS SUCH A HUGE MOOD. Will forever live for that.
“Tea,” Althy said, “focus. Remember that we have a purpose in coming here.”
“Yes,” I found myself saying, “to read everything we can get our hands on.”
“Oh dear,” murmured my asha-sister. “We’ve lost her.”
• The Shadow Glass gave me a lot of feels with all the plot twists and betrayals it held. It has a mix of mystery and magic that made my reading experience 100% memorable. This was the best conclusion I have hoped for and my heart is full of love for it.

I will certainly miss this world and all its characters. Nevertheless, I’m sure this won’t be the end. I will visit Tea’s tale over and over again because it’s what it deserves.
