THE BONE THIEF: DUOLOGY, by Breeana Shields, Page Street Publishing


“I was absolutely swept away by the world of The Bone Charmer.” – Kendare Blake, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series

A deft exploration of the weight of grief and cost of revenge, Breeana Shields’s Bone Charmer duology reaches its spine-tingling conclusion in this high-octane fantasy-thriller.

Saskia returns to Ivory Hall to train in bone magic, determined to stop Latham from gaining the power of all three Sights—past, present, and future. But danger lurks within the fortress’s marrow. Trials are underway for the apprentices, and the tasks feel specifically engineered to torment Saskia, which is exactly what Latham wants.

As she grows increasingly more suspicious, her thirst for revenge becomes all-consuming. Together with the friends she can trust and the boy she loved in another lifetime, Saskia traces clues from Latham’s past to determine what he’ll do next. Their search leads them across Kastelia and brings them to a workshop housing a vast collection of horrors, including the bones Latham stole from Gran, and the knowledge that the future isn’t all that’s in jeopardy—but the past as well.

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is the conclusion to a duology. I recommend that you read the first book: “The Bone Charmer” first.

Bone magic… interesting. The world-building was done well. The characters… they were okay at times and very engaging at others. I overall enjoyed the story of the second book, but the first was better.

I gave it:

Five star rating – shiny golden stars
