    Tea knew there was something different about her when she refused to let her brother go after his death.  They were burying him and she lost control and raised him from the dead.  After that, she was taken away from her family and she's trained to be an asha.  It's just as well.  No one wanted to be around her or her dark magic.  Her brother comes with her.  They tell her he's her familiar.

    Sourcebooks Fire and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 7th.

    This was a fascinating tale of evil monsters, two classes of people, and those who could wield magic.  The asha learn to use runes to make magic.  They learn to defend themselves.  They learn to heal using herbs.  They learn history, politics and more.  But they are dangerous and they don't have many real friends.

    What Tea finds is that there is a conspiracy going on right in the asha's household.  She also learns how to use her powers to subdue a three-headed monster.  What she is showing others is that she is the most powerful bone witch around at the time.  While that's impressive, not everyone is impressed.

    This is the first book in a new series.  You get enough background in this story to set up the stage for future books.  You won't be bored reading this series.
