Book Review: The Heart Forger by Rin Chupeco

Life isn’t fair, dear one. And sometimes, neither is death

I loved The Bone Witch, but I could barely remember what happened and The Heart Forger wasn’t very helpful with it either. But it was still a beautifully written book.

Book Review: The Heart Forger by Rin Chupeco


Title & Author: The Heart Forger by Rin Chupeco
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
Release date: March 20 2018
Series: The Bone Witch
Publisher: Sourcebooks


In The Bone Witch, Tea mastered resurrection―now she’s after revenge…

No one knows death like Tea. A bone witch who can resurrect the dead, she has the power to take life…and return it. And she is done with her self-imposed exile. Her heart is set on vengeance, and she now possesses all she needs to command the mighty daeva. With the help of these terrifying beasts, she can finally enact revenge against the royals who wronged her―and took the life of her one true love.

But there are those who plot against her, those who would use Tea’s dark power for their own nefarious ends. Because you can’t kill someone who can never die…

War is brewing among the kingdoms, and when dark magic is at play, no one is safe.

I give The Heart Forger by Rin Chupeco three out of five hearts because it was beautifully written and still an interesting world. I loved The Bone Witch and was super curious where this book would take it.

The Heart Forger didn’t capture me as much as The Bone Witch, probably because I could barely remember the previous book, but still, it was lovely. The novel is super interesting. In between each chapter is a small bit written from a bard’s pov telling about Tea as the evil the world wants her to be and the rest is in the past to see how she got there. I really liked seeing how the two lines come together.

Tea becomes the evil the world needs her to be, which is something I saw coming back in The Bone Witch, but it was still interesting to see how she goes there. It is inspiring and makes me want to write something as interesting.

Rin definitely has become a better author since her previous book, but I will have to reread these two books before I can read The Shadowglass in March of next year. Who knows, maybe I will.
