Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (extended extract review)


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

Omg!! I need more! When I saw this extended extract on Net Galley I knew I had to try and I am so so glad I received this, but I am so so so sad it's not the whole book. But thank goodness it's not a long wait. 

Just the 15 chapters have been incredible, the world building is insane and more happened in every chapter then sometimes happens in the whole book. I literally couldn't put it down and probably hit my kindle screen about 5 times in the hope it will magically make more pages appear. 

I now totally understand why everyone is talking about this book. This is THE one for January, if not for this year, to look out for. It's going to be huuuuuge!

It's full of magic, friendship and adventure on every page. Already filled with twists and surprises. Wow, I can only imagine what else is to come. 

15 chapters in and I am already a huge fan. Scratch that I was a fan from page one. Rarely is it that easy to get into a book. Fantastic! 

Hurry up 14th of January so I can finish this amazing book!!
