The dramatic finale to The Bone Witch series! Tea's dark magic eats away at her, but she must save the one she loves most, even while her life—and the kingdoms—are on the brink of destruction.

In the Eight Kingdoms, none have greater strength or influence than the asha, who hold elemental magic. But only a bone witch has the power to raise the dead. Tea has used this dark

“There are worse things than black heartsglass, Tea. Silver is just as capable of hate.”

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 awe of how

------------------------

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

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.

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 ...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

Wowowowowow.

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

"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

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)!

"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

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

“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

So... The Shadowglass .

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

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.

But the

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 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

The Shadowglass is the third and final installment in author Rin Chupeco's The Bone Witch trilogy. This captivating fantasy series features Persian and Asian influences, while focusing on witches, curses, and resurrection. In the Eight Kingdoms, none have greater strength or influence than the asha, who hold elemental magic. But only a bone witch has the power to raise the dead. Tea of the Embers has used this dark magic to

Well, I finally made it to the end! I didn’t really enjoy this one as much as the first two books of the trilogy, but this was much more complex! Was it my fault? I have no idea!

The Shadowglass is the conclusion to the epic journey of our beloved Bone witch, Tea. In the first book, The Bone Witch, we got to learn about the world of Asha, skilled witches that resemble geisha a lot! They fight, they throw magic spells, they dance and entertain, they are political

“I will save the kingdoms, and I will save you in the process, and maybe I will save the bits and pieces of myself that need rescuing too.”


The Shadow Glass follows Tea, a bone witch with the power to raise the dead. She's used this magic to bring her brother back from the dead, as well as those who will be helpful to her and join her army to fight the royals. But Tea's journey to find a shadowglass—to achieve immortality for the one person she loves most in the world—threatens to destroy

Rin Chupeco is an absolute marvel with world-building. She has managed to create a beautiful and complex world including a detailed magic system, all the while telling this riveting story of a girl growing into her powers. The world of The Shadowglass is full of different countries, different cultures, and different people. These are genuinely imaginative lands with a basis in Asian culture. The only part of this book that was disappointing was knowing that my time in the world of The Bone Witch ...more

(Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

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

At first, I thought that this trilogy would not be for me, but then I picked up Heart Forger and found redeeming qualities that made me enjoy it. This action packed, fantasy trilogy involves slow burn romances, epic betrayals, and otherworldly magic that all combine to make this a story of major proportions. Tea is an intellectual, caring, and strong MC that is also diverse. I cannot get over the cover designs or the well crafted stories that Rin Chupeco has made and I am very thankful to be a ...more

A solid end to a very interesting trilogy. I don't want to say much since saying really anything about this book would probably end up spoiling something. This series is packed with plot and is very quick paced. Nothing is unaccounted for and everything is important.

Great series. I loved the ending.

Whenever you really love a series it is really difficult to write a review for the last book. It is no different here. I stumbled upon The Bone Witch by accident when the arcs were first going out and the second I finished the book I requested an arc for the second one. I really enjoyed the book.

The second book, The Hear Forger, is going to be one of my favorite YA fantasy reads for a long time still. I reread my favorite passages before diving into the last one, had to be done.
