Release Date: May 26th 2020
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
A deft exploration of the weight of grief and cost of revenge, Breeana Shields’s Bone Charmer duology reaches its spine-tingling conclusion in this high-octane fantasy-thriller. Saskia returns to Ivory Hall to train in bone magic, determined to stop Latham from gaining the power of all three Sights—past, present, and future. But danger lurks within the fortress’s marrow. Trials are underway for the apprentices, and the tasks feel specifically engineered to torment Saskia, which is exactly what Latham wants. As she grows increasingly more suspicious, her thirst for revenge becomes all-consuming. Together with the friends she can trust and the boy she loved in another lifetime, Saskia traces clues from Latham’s past to determine what he’ll do next. Their search leads them across Kastelia and brings them to a workshop housing a vast collection of horrors, including the bones Latham stole from Gran, and the knowledge that the future isn’t all that’s in jeopardy—but the past as well.

Breeana Shields is an author of fantasy novels for teens including The Bone Charmer, The Bone Thief, Poison’s Kiss, and Poison’s Cage.
When she’s not writing, Breeana loves reading, traveling, and playing board games with her extremely competitive family. She lives near Washington D.C. with her husband, her three children, and two adorable, but spoiled dogs.
I really liked the concept of bone magic in The Bone Charmer series. Controlling nature through nature. But the magic seemed too constricted or too dependent on the presence of dead bones. That’s a huge limitation the protagonist had.
The characterisation is brilliant. Layered, not superficial. The growth of the protagonist is the most invigorating. We see remarkable evolution in Saskia through The Bone Charmer and The Bone Thief.
The suspense and the action factors of the book will force you to keep reading, it is so engaging.
