Not all that glitters is gold you guys… I really wanted this book to be wonderful and magical and maybe a little creepy. I just loves the cover and though ‘This one just has to be amazing!’ But… It didn’t turn out as expected actually.
For starters, I absolutely
hated didn’t enjoy tha fact that every chapter is being deprives of its mystery and suspense because our witch is being interviewed by a really nosy guy we don’t know much about.
It took me many many chapters to get over it and even then, I started skipping those parts because I wanted to go on with the story, which wasn’t much suspenseful to be honest.
I liked the premise of the story. A little girl wakes her beloved brother from the dead and has to face the stamp and social shunning she get’s for being a ‘bone witch’. She get’s picked up by a very powerful black asha ( the politically right word to call a bone witch) and starts as an asha apprentice of sorts.
The story was entertaining and funny but sometimes I felt it was a little too obsessed with details instead of the plot.
The main characters and basically all other characters were rather flat. I could feel that there was more to some of them but there was rarely a glimpse of it in the text itself.
*I received a ARC from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
