I’d heard about The Bone Shard Daughter for months, so I had to see if all the hype was real. At the beginning I wasn’t sure about it, but now I totally understand the hype. So let’s talk about it.
The emperor has ruled for decades through the use of bone shard magic. His animal like creatures maintain the land. But revolution is sweeping across the empire. While rebellion runs wild Lin spends her days locked in the palace. She can’t become heir until she recovers her memories she lost to a horrible sickness. To prove herself worthy she vows to learn the art of bone shard magic. But when rebellion reaches the castle she must decide what she must do to save her people.
My Thoughts on The Bone Shard Daughter
The Bone Shard Daughter started well, but I didn’t feel a connections to the characters until later on. And oddly enough, I connected with the main character last. But the characters did start to feel fleshed out toward the end.
And while I liked all of the character individually there is a romance happening that I’m not crazy about. The chemistry just wasn’t there for me. But it did end on a high note, so I hope that will change in the next book.
But those are my only complaints. Otherwise The Bone Shard Daughter impressed me. I loved the horror elements included. And it really was terrifying.
And just when I thought I had everything figured out everything changed. Nothing ended the way I expected and I’m so glad. Honestly, it was a stunning debut novel and I can’t wait to get to book two.
