2017’s The Bone Witch is the first volume of Rin Chupeco’s Bone Witch trilogy.
The witches of the village of Knightscross predict a wonderous future for Tea, although their prognostications are short on specifics. Further clarification arrives after the tragic death of Tea’s brother Fox, a soldier slain by a daeva, a wandering monster. Overwrought with grief, Tea raises her brother from the dead. Or at least, she raises him. Fox is still dead but he is conscious and mobile once more.
Tea is a bone witch, a necromancer.
