First things first, if you haven’t read book 1, The Bone Charmer, stop reading cuz ~spoilers~ and go read it! Then come back and read this review!🤣
So I really liked The Bone Charmer and couldn’t wait to dive back into this world.
This was a great conclusion to the duology! I love the magic involved in it and the idea of bone magic is so cool. We get to see even more of the ins and outs of how bone magic works which I loved. The different timelines scheme of it can be confusing so make sure you’re paying attention! I think the author did a great job in laying everything out and building this world up. Saskia has many obstacles to overcome in this, including grief and revenge, as she works to uncover what Latham has in store for after murdering her mother. The character development is much more in depth in The Bone Thief (as it should be ) and we get even more twists this go around!
It was dark, it was gritty, it was action packed! This beautifully written fantasy is a series you should definitely check out.
