  • Erin
    Thanks to NetGalley for an advanced ebook in exchange for an honest review.The sequel to The Bone Witch, a fantasy series that I started last year but that I had obviously forgotten that I struggled with the storyline. But I had stated in my review of book one that I was intrigued enough to see where Rin Chupeco would take Tea, her brother Fox, Kance/Kalen/Khalad, and the rest of the cast. We have the future Tea telling her tale to the Bard and t...
  • Christina (Ensconced in Lit)
    I enjoyed this installment a lot more than the first. I think now that we are introduced to all of the characters, the story finally has room to expand and move. It seems that Tea, the bone witch, hovers between being a villain and a hero, and there's a love story brewing that I cheered for, as I ship these two characters together very much. The bard's story makes more sense in this installment, but it is an odd mesh of future and present that I ...

    Unfortunately this second instalment in The Bone Witch series was such a disappointment for me when compared with the first book. Which is such a shame as I absolutely LOVED the first one with a passion, wrote it a glowing review, have been recommending it to everyone, and have been eagerly waiting to see what would happen next for about year and a half. Now I wouldn’t say this was a BAD book. It’s perfectly fine. It’s alright. It just didn...

    A solid second book in this series, but not better than the original. This self-comparison is always the struggle when looking at fantasy series. Chupeco built her world even more clearly here, defining many important relationships and deepening the examination of political intrigue. The "past perspective" of this book kept me intrigued and reading, but the "current story line", told from the Bard's point of view, often lost my attention. Unlike ...
  • Shelley
    Pretty twisted story with an even more twisted ending. I do hope the third book is as good as this one.
  • LaRonda (Flying Paperbacks)
    You can see my full review here!As the second installment the this series, I can say it is better than the first. All of my issues with the first one which wasn't many were improved in this one. Tea's character development, the expansion of the world and the inclusion of relationships that will possibly impact not only the main character and her choices, but the events in the story made this an unputdownable read. The romance is turned up a notch...

    I really enjoyed the first book in this series and this one did not disappoint! I know a lot of people had issues with the slowness of the first, and the pacing was better in this one. There is still the two narratives going, Tea’s story from the past and then the Bard’s tale from the present, which in this book got a little confusing, mostly because the two stories are beginning to catch up with each other, which made it a little harder to k...

    I got this ARC from Sourcebooks Fire in exchange for an honest review and let me tell you, I'm so glad I did. It was a ride and so intense, from start to finish. The character development is great - not only Tea grows, makes mistakes and learns about herself through this book, we also see more of all of the side characters we were introduced to in the first book. It's feel like a proper gang and I can't help but loving them and their interaction....

    While I do my best to NOT spoil a book, "The Heart Forger" isn't due out until March of this year- please read with caution!I'll be blatantly honest- I was not looking forward to reading this book. Why? The first book! I read "The Bone Witch" last year (around this time actually) and was pretty disappointed with it. Normally when I know a book is included in a series, I try to be gracious with the first book; it's laying the groundwork (essential...

    5/5 stars"'Thank you, Usij.' 'Oh?' 'If it were not for your Savul, my brother would not have been killed, and I could have lived the rest of my life oblivious to my true abilities. You are the reason I am standing here, and I am the reason you will die today.'"I really loved The Bone Witch and The Heart Forger did not disappoint. The book picked up right where The Bone Witch left off, alternating from the present, Tea raising the daeva to go to ...

    For more reviews visit glimpsesofmybooks.blogspot.comI enjoyed The Bone witch... But I LOVED The Heart Forger! 💗 This book was nothing short of amazing. I expected it to be good, I did not expected it to rock my world. I finished reading it at about 2:30 am and then re-read all the quotes and passages I marked (I use Post-it flags, in case you wondering). It was THAT good! I know I convinced some of you sunnies to give The Bone Witch a try via...

    So, this isn’t supposed to be released until March 20th but my local B&N had a boatload up on their shelves so I had to snatch it up to read. I’m…kinda disappointed. Honestly, I really don’t know how I feel about the book. The beginning was good, the middle was alright, the ending was excellent, and the plot twist was amazing but I didn’t love it it. I’m not going to really give a full review review like I normally do but here are som...

    A special thanks to NetGalley for sending me an ARC of this book!Last year I was pretty damned stoked about reading THE BONE WITCH by Rin Chupeco. I really do love me some witch mythologies, and even though it sounded like it was higher fantasy than I can usually tolerate, I went ahead and gave it a whirl. And yeah, it was a little more high fantasy than I like. But I really liked Tea, the dark asha who has the ability to resurrect the dead. I li...
  • Olivia Farr
    "The Heart Forger" continues Tea's story right where we left off in the first book. In this continuation, we still see the same double style with the present/future in italics told by a bard with the 'bone witch' and the brunt of the book in normal font of Tea's past, which leads up to the italicized present/future. It had been a while since I read the first book, and I quickly learned that I needed to remember more of the first book than I did, ...

    Considering that it had been a while since I had read the first book, I struggled a bit to recall the different elements of the story and the connections between the different characters. But once I refreshed my memory, I was able to really enjoy the story.This novel was a lot more action-packed than the first book, which would please a lot of people who had struggled with the slower pace of The Bone Witch. I liked that the story expanded beyond...

    I first discovered Rin Chupeco by catching an interesting spine title amidst a clutter of other books. The Girl in the Well fascinated me immensely! Ever since then there has not been a book yet by this wonderful author that I have not devoured. The Heart Forger starts where we last left off. Tea is regaling the Bard with the tale of how she came to be the dark asha who commands terrifying daeva. We are carried along with him in this tale of intr...
  • Dawn Taylor
    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. I have read a lot of reviews of this book series that complain that the plot is too complicated, with too many characters, and it moves too slowly. I can see their point. In the beginning of the first book, I was lost for quite awhile. This is a complex world with a lot of characters to remember and that takes time to develop. That being said, I was still intrigued the entire time a...
  • Callon
    I probably enjoyed this book as much is the first. The characters had already been developed in The Bone Witch, so most of the development was building up on that foundation. I found that Rin Chupeco managed to maintain the surprise through the text, building up to what may not be a grand reveal but still moderately surprising nonetheless. I found myself questioning the characters, attempting to decide certain facts before they were revealed, an...
