Most of you know this The Bone Witch trilogy is a series I hold very close to my heart, but I truly have been looking at this word document for the last twenty minutes completely unable to start this review. I’m not ready to say goodbye, and I’m equal parts in denial that it’s over, but in

The Bone Witch, stripped down to its barest bones, is about a girl and her brother - about relearning what it is to be family.

The Heart Forger is about loving someone despite their flaws and disagreements - about how living separate lives does not mean the lessening of bonds.

And the Shadowglass will be about

Thank you SourcebooksFire and Rin Chupeco for the ARC in exchange for an honest review and Myrth of Cliste Bella for hosting the PH Blog Tour!

A bittersweet but a stellar conclusion for The Bone Witch trilogy.

The last leg on Tea’s journey rendered me speechless. Though I anticipated what’s coming for her, I sobbed like a baby. It was heart-wrenching especially Tea shared a strong bond with everyone. You can’t help rooting for her throughout the book.

This finale is both character & plot driven. Ms

Shadowglass is the last book in The Bone Witch trilogy, the author did an amazing job concluding this series. There was no loose ends or plot holes. Since this book is a conclusion to the series there were a lot of revelations here, we finally know why Tea got exiled, what the Faceless actually wanted to do,the events that made Fox dislike her, what happened to Kalen and who the traitor is. The plot started immediately from where The Heart Forger ended. Tea has finally acquired Shadowglass with ...more
I am struggling to write this review with tears in my eyes because I can’t believe this amazing trilogy is already over and I can’t experience it for the first time ever again. I’m so happy and sad to have been a part of this reading journey and I have not felt this emotional and satisfied with a series conclusion in a long while. I have a lot to say, so there will probably be a lot of spoilers for the previous two books but I will try to be as vague as possible for this one, so proceed with cau ...more

This ended the series well. It started with a driving pace much like the last book, but slowly because a denouement which was necessary but predictable. There were some revelations that provided plot twist material, one of which was a highly interesting reveal while the other was a sort of interesting reveal. It was clear the author had a purpose for this book worked out in advance and maybe I should've felt more emotionally compelled than I did, but as the flash forwards merged into one with th ...more

“I am sorry about many things, but I am not sorry about this.”

I’ve been trying to write this review for a few minutes now, but I still can’t convey the words to describe this third and final book. I really can’t understand how this trilogy is so underrated, because I truly believe this is one of the best YA fantasy stories out there. Rin Chupeco has created a powerful story with an intricate world-building, complex siblings relationships, a beautiful and heartbreaking romance, and an outstan

The Shadowglass was good. I thought it would be the end of the series but the author had other ideas.
Book 4 is uncalled for.
Book 4 should not exist at all.
Book 4 is stretching the plot too far.
I'd like to say I won't read Book 4 but that'd be kinda impossible.
I'm gonna read Book 4. I just hope Rin Chupeco has no plans of writing Book 5.
I definitely won't read Book 5.
One of the best.. PERIOD..
Do yourself a favor and Please read it..

It'll leave you wanting more more and more !!!

How do I read another book after THAT ending?! Sobbing because it was absolutely beautiful seeing Tea's journey throughout the whole trilogy - from a naive and innocent trainee with the ability to raise the dead, to a powerful and revered Dark Asha who can control powerful daeva (demons) from the grave.

Tea is an ultimate anti-heroine who doesn't care what anyone else thinks of her - even if sometimes, it's her closest that lets her down - she's definitely someone with conviction and a strong mo

What am I even supposed to say about this?

Now back to me having a crisis over trying to review this book. It’s been a few weeks since I read the book so details are starting to be a little hazy, but I’ll try my best. All I can really say is that Shadowglass was such a good ending to the trilogy. I got a little worried towards the end about how everything could possibly be wrapped up with the amount of

Such a satisfying conclusion to what has been one of my favorite fantasy series. Maybe the pacing suffered a bit in the beginning, but it improved so much. This series was always about different kinds of love, and the strength that we can draw from them, and it was absolutely beautiful to see such earnest love in every single page. There were different kinds of representation and diversity throughout the story, which was so amazing as well. Of course, I also enjoyed the magical aspe

“The darkness was inside me, I think, long before I raised my brother from the dead. My silver heartsglass merely gave it a mouth, made the darkness realize that it too can hunger…"

4.5 Stars. I'll be honest: The Shadowglass felt like a three-star book for a majority of my reading experience. However, I think I can completely attribute that to the circumstances behind me reading this. I was in a bad mood and I read 1/3 of it
DNF - pg. 180

I just... don't care enough to finish this. The first 80-90 pages were decent and quite the improvement upon Bone Witch and Heart Forger, but the rest of what I read was more of the same horrid writing, lifeless characters, pointless worldbuilding and an untameable need to make Tea look like the best ever. I didn't even get to the Likh (view spoiler) and Khalad bits I heard about (they are my faves, but at what cost)!

Though it has a satisfying conclusion (and it did make me cry), The Shadowglass is a satisfactory ending to The Bone Witch series which, unfortunately, drags a bit too much for my liking.

"I have always known darkness. It has been my friend. Yet it has also been my enemy. Some days, it is a mist over my eyes, leaving me blind to what should be obvious. But some days, I wipe away that fog and see more clearly in its aftermath than I ever have before it."

I’m captivated with The Bone Witch because of the realistical way Chupeco crafted her characters particularly Tea. I love our heroine who’s lured by the dark magic within her, and she’s not afraid to embrace it. She’s vengeful, and

If you're a regular follower of the shenanigans here at The Moonlight Library, you will likely be aware that when I listened to The Bone Witch and The Heart Forger on audiobook, I kind of lost my shit.

This series is AMAZING. The world building is so rich and detailed, the characters are fully formed, with motivations that affect the plot, which itself is full of twists and action and ro

"Have you ever loved anyone so fiercely you were afraid it might shatter you?"

Fellow book lovers, one of my all-time favorite series has finally come to an end. Rin Chupeco deserves a standing ovation. This trilogy is nothing short of phenomenal. It captured my attention from the very first page and it still hasn’t quite let me go. In all honesty, I don’t think this series will ever release me from its
I had a tough time reading this book. I took a bit of a break from it midway because I wasn't that into it (which is really odd considering I gave The Heart Forger 5 stars). Now that I've finished it, I feel quite underwhelmed with it as a conclusion but it's difficult to explain why.

In book 2 I enjoyed the 'then and now' story format. Tea is telling her story to a Bard so we get to see two very different tales unfolding. In book 3, the two stories are getting closer together chronologically an
I think this is 4.5 stars for me.

The Shadowglass is the third and final book in the Bone Witch trilogy, and it finally has the two stories of Tea tying together. It's really action packed, which sometimes left me a little tired. I'm not a huge fan of non stop action.

Also sometimes I got confused between the past and the present, like when they were fighting the Drychta army in both times? I kept forgetting which was which, and only the presence of daeva made me remember which was which.

I am definitely not ready for it to be over. I've had the ARC for a few months (by the time you read this it will have been SO many months) and it's why I put it off so long. I can't even handle how much this book will wreck me. I am in love with The Bone Witch trilogy from the smallest details, Rin's dedications, all the way to the larger themes of ambitious girls and unfair
So I did a thing. I finally finished this trilogy!

So The Shadow Glass was good. Not sure if it was better than the second book but it was better than the first. Heck, anything at this point was better than the first book. In it, you are still with the same gang but Tea is definitely going through some trials on her own. It kind of feels like she has the whole weight of the world on her shoulders and she's just trying to save her loved ones.

I will even admit that so much happen in this last book
