Picked up the Libby app from my library that allows members access to ebooks. One of my first selections was an interesting book called the Bone Witch. The author Rin Chupeco writes a vivid story loosely based around the geisha lifestyle with magic and fighting monsters.
The main character is the youngest member of her family and her oldest brother is killed in battle. At his burrial she starts screaming that her brother is alive and not to burry him. She then brings him back to life sorta. She is a bone witch, her powers are over death and the dead. After she raises her brother she falls ill and is taken under the wing of another bone witch. Bone witches are needed to destory the monsters that plague the land. They lay the monsters to rest and take something called a beozor stone. These stones are powerful magic and used in potions for everything. The book is told is a double format that is weird but readable. As a first book in a series it ended on the abrupt side. The next book is in planning but hasn’t been released yet.
All in all a worth while interesting read. Cheers, james
