From Goodread

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 am so glad there’s a progress being made in this book. The first one was definitely interesting, I had never read a book like it, but I have to be honest, it was taking too long with all the world build up, and too many cryptic in the way Future Tea took hold of the story line. That being said, I still think Future Tea’s storyline was much more interesting than the Past Tea. It was the same with the second book, Dark Future Tea was definitely more interesting. And though the readers are still left in the dark in regards to what the hell happened that turned Tea into a dark revenge seeking character, in the second book we know more and that is a relief. I almost lost it if I have to guess again, much like I did in the first book.

I think the second book has finally held its grip, there were not too many unnecessary explanations. At this point the reader has understood more about the world, the kingdoms, and whatnot, but I have to say, there were still some parts to the story that could have been cut short instead of wasting too many words.

Would still recommend it, though. Because, surely if you read the first book, you would hooked and curious to know more, right?
