On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from others. 
In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well. 
Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires. 
Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness. 
Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

Why I'm Waiting:

   Ever since I saw the cover, I've been dying to read it! And the summary alsvo empowers my want for it. Every time I see or hear anything about Truthwitch, I get really excited. Which is the exact same reason I'm sad that it doesn't come out until next year. Some people were so lucky to get their hands on Truthwitch at BEA. So I'm praying that my request to the publisher succeeds. 

   I don't read that many witch books but it's a high fantasy and I love that genre a ton. Plus I heard that there will be sexy pirates. And sea monsters! That ship on the cover is stunning as well as the sword. And that heroine looks so badass. 

What are you waiting for? Have you heard of Truthwitch?

  1. Wow! I need to get this one on my WoW list before it comes out. So excited for this one too! My WoW is gothic horror romance and kind of a different thing for me, but I think it's going to be amazing.

    1. This was really popular at BEA. Didn't think there would be so much excitement like there was. And I've only read a couple of witch books and they weren't the greatest :/
