I got an arc from NetGalley and Nyx Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Thank you both for that!
And honestly? I enjoyed reading this story.
The Bone Way has a great premise and starts off in the heat of everything: Teagan’s wife missing. But I also like how the story explored Teagan’s past with Cress every so often in flashback chapters. That was a great touch to develop the characters. Each new part of the Shadow Realm brought wonder into the story. I also love the power in Teagan’s words, and how Cress is a strong character that can stand on her own.
My only complaint was that a few parts feel like some details were missing, which made the story feel a bit rushed. And it slightly got a bit cliché toward the end. But those are minor.
I’m a sucker for fantasy worlds, and I really liked the different creatures and the journey through the Shadow Realm. Would love to buy a paperback of this book for my shelves now.
