fantasy, myth retelling



Wow, this was beautiful. The Bone Way is a reimagining of the tale of Eurydice and Orpheus, but it’s also feels so original in the way it builds the different parts of the Shadow Realm.

I also really loved the complicated aspects of the Shadow Princess, and how she went from savior to villain to forgotten myth.

I loved how much Teagan and Cress love each other, and the lengths they’d go for one another, but I also really appreciate how their journey along the Bone Way forces them to realize they need to live for themselves and their own dreams as well.

This was a quick read, and I really enjoyed it. The world building is fascinating and the love between Teagan and Cress is obvious in words and actions.
