Friday Fave is a weekly discussion about different bookish topics. You can choose just one favourite or a few – the choice is up to you!
This week’s topic is: A book I haven’t read… yet
I don’t know why I keep putting this book off, but I just do. Truthwitch has been on my shelf since it was first published, and I even have the sequel, Windwitch (which has a gorgeous cover – it’s one of my favourites even if it has the fantasy cliche of a person with a sword wearing a cloak on it). I follow the author on Twitter and I love the stuff that she shares which includes fan art. This book has got so much that appeals to me, and I just seem to forget about it when I go to pick up my next book. Although for a while, I hadn’t really been reading any fantasy books, or reading very little of them. I just know that this will be a book that I will enjoy. It is my goal to finally read this book by the end of the year!
In a continent on the edge of war, two witches hold its fate in their hands.
Young witches Safiya and Iseult have a habit of finding trouble. After clashing with a powerful Guildmaster and his ruthless Bloodwitch bodyguard, the friends are forced to flee their home.
Safi must avoid capture at all costs as she’s a rare Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. Many would kill for her magic, so Safi must keep it hidden – lest she be used in the struggle between empires. And Iseult’s true powers are hidden even from herself.
In a chance encounter at Court, Safi meets Prince Merik and makes him a reluctant ally. However, his help may not slow down the Bloodwitch now hot on the girls’ heels. All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.
