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. 

This book has been getting so much craze since the summer and now that the release date is getting closer and closer, I swear people are going nuts. In all honesty, I had no clue what people were so excited for and then I read the book and goodness, I am now fully aware.

I have no idea if my review could really give this book justice. The story was so intriguing and this is the story one should read if they are facing a reading slump. Everything flowed and the book exceeded my expectations. Emotions were present through my time with this book and I am glad I listened to the rants of people of how much one needs to stop everything and read.

The characters in this book I felt was the best part of the book. Even though I feel most readers want to have when reading a book. However, I felt I was with every character and fighting alongside them in what their purpose was.

I need the second book now and the fact that I am reading this book before it actually comes out is the worst feeling in the world because you have to wait at least a whole other year for the next book. But that shouldn’t matter. I am so looking forward to continuing this series and seeing where it goes. I cannot tell you how much you need to join this bandwagon and read this book. Simply fantastic!
