THE HEART FORGER, by Rin Chupeco, Sourcebooks


In The Bone Witch, Tea mastered resurrection―now she’s after revenge…

No one knows death like Tea. A bone witch who can resurrect the dead, she has the power to take life…and return it. And she is done with her self-imposed exile. Her heart is set on vengeance, and she now possesses all she needs to command the mighty daeva. With the help of these terrifying beasts, she can finally enact revenge against the royals who wronged her―and took the life of her one true love.

But there are those who plot against her, those who would use Tea’s dark power for their own nefarious ends. Because you can’t kill someone who can never die…

War is brewing among the kingdoms, and when dark magic is at play, no one is safe.

Due out: March 2018


I received this book in exchange for my honest review.


Stronger and even more in-depth world building.  All the characters, present and accounted for and developing perfectly. A Protagonist at the fork in the road: if she goes one way, she’ll become a villain, if she goes the other… so stay tuned for book three!

Past to present perspectives fills in many holes and answers a lot of questions.  A love story of sorts that’s not taking over the book–love it!  Lots of subtle and not so subtle mysterious elements to keep the plot pushing forward at a steady and easily transitional pace.  Tension, tension, tension… love it!

What a great premise! The whole concept for this series is excellent, well-researched (so far), tangible and what a ride!

Many times in a series you find the sequel not as good as the first.  Well, that is NOT the case here. “The Heart Forger” is so much more than the first.  Even the magic in the second book is more bad-ass and developed further.

The Protagonist continues to grow and develop with the secondary characters helping her to reach her goals.   All are likable and you want to know more about each.  There’s a full range of emotions felt while reading this book and I enjoyed experiencing every single one of them.  I was entertained and can’t wait for the next segment in this series.

The narrative of the Bard fills in many answers to questions. Great writing style and excellent voice of the author spins a tale you just have to read!

I love this book and give it:
