Dear Susan Dennard and Truthwitch,
CAN I HAVE THIS RIGHT NOW PLEASE?[quote cite=”Goodreads” url=”http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21414439-truthwitch”]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.[/quote]
Here are my reasons why I want to read this book:
- FRIENDSHIP. FRIENDSHIP. FRIENDSHIP. I absolutely love books that have fabulous ladies joining forces, kicking asses, and having each other’s backs. FRIENDSHIPS ARE AWESOME. Safi and Iseult’s friendship sounds like it’s going to make me emotional. I JUST LOVE FEMALE FRIENDSHIPS, OKAY?
Magic is awesome. I want to see how magic works in this world, the different types of magic, and how people uses it! The worldbuilding for it must be fucking amazing. (I can feel it in my bones!) Magic is fucking cool.
That cover is badass! ‘Nuff said. (It really makes me wonder how the ladies in this book would get along with Celaena Sardothien.)
- Friends have told me this is my type of book. I don’t disagree! Mainly because of the awesome friendship. How am I supposed to say no to this book? I can’t! I want.
Who else is excited about this book?

I think Celaena would either totally get along with Safi and Iseult, or totally just want to do her own things ;) But seriously, all the reasons you’ve mentioned up there? EXACTLY why I want Truthwitch in my life.

YES, I WANT THIS BOOK OH SO BADLY. I’ve heard the best things so far and I just know I’m going to adore every word of it. I can’t wait.
Ooo fun post!
Truthwitch is at the top of my wishlist too! I cannot wait to read this one. I begged my library to order it ASAP!
I’m only reading it right now because I got to borrow it from Hazel, and I’m not yet done, but yes, there is a lot of friendship. And sexual tension, which is why I need a certain two characters to just get on with it already.
Kayla @ The Thousand Lives says
YES ALL OF THIS. Is it January yet??? Also – you must have read my mind because I thought “Can Celeana work with these ladies and just be an all around badass team?”

I’m so glad to have stumbled across your blog, I love your site design and all the dedication to font styles!
Truthwitch sounds amazing, but I’m largely trying to ignore its existence because 2016 is so awfully far away *cries*
